Our Inspector's view

Tucked away in secluded woodland surrounded by peaceful countryside, the eight beautiful Alachigh (pronounced alla-cheeg) tents are cosy and warm and kitted out with everything you need to feel at home. The sumptuous interiors have comfortable beds (a double, two truckle beds and a sofa bed for children), quality dining furniture, lanterns, a cold-water sink, a large cool box and a wood-burning stove (wood provided), plus an en suite shower or bathroom. Outside each tent there is a fire pit for BBQs and carved tree-trunk seating. There are level bark pathways between the tents, and a ‘cheat’s kitchen’ in the centre of the site, with microwave, cooking hobs, an honesty bar plus a freezer as there’s no electricity in the tents themselves. The separate shower block has a drying room, underfloor heating, monsoon showers and a Victorian style roll-top bath. In addition, there’s a communal tent with a wood-burning stove and a wildflower meadow for games. An impressive and spacious marquee has been added for large group activities.

About the area

Discover Monmouthshire

In their bid to control the borderlands of Monmouthshire – also known as the Marches – the Normans built a triangle of castles: Grosmont, Skenfrith and White. At first, they were simple wooden structures strengthened by earthworks, but when the lively Welsh refused to stop attacking them, it was decided more permanent fortresses were needed. All three are worth a visit and the views from the battlements at White Castle over the surrounding countryside to the Black Mountains are stunning, as is all the scenery in this area – consisting of a patchwork of low hills, hidden valleys, fields criss-crossed with hedgerows and small belts of woodland. 

Monmouth itself makes a great base to explore the beautiful Wye Valley, as well as being known as the home of Rockfield Studios, where Queen recorded Bohemian Rhapsody in 1975. The largest town in the county, Abergavenny is creating a name for itself as the foodie capital of the Usk Valley, and has held a weekly cattle market on the same site since 1863. Its location just six miles from the English border means it’s often described as the ‘gateway to Wales’.
