The Experience

On a 17th-century farmstead near Usk, circled by sheep-sprinkled fields and happy hens, this carefully renovated stone cottage is perfect for couples who want to immerse themselves in nature. Rambles start from the door through fields and woods or it’s an easy stroll to the nearby pub, The Hall Inn, for supper if you’re feeling lazy about cooking.

Adorned with original art and bright with fresh flowers, downstairs is open plan with a neat kitchen to rustle up meals, a sofa bed for extra guests and a lovely upstairs bedroom with a smart shower room. On rainy days you can dip into board games, books or watch a DVD from the huge collection.

It’ll be bliss to spend the entire day out exploring – Usk, Raglan Castle and Chepstow are all close – and return for a barbecue in the pretty garden, a wander through the wildflower meadow or a simple evening staying in by the fire and getting cosy. Alicia leaves you freshly baked bread and homemade jams for breakfast.

Oak Farm is set in beautiful Welsh countryside with breathtaking views over the valleys – a proper farm with chickens running around and sheep strolling in the fields. Alicia and Christopher are superb hosts, offering all the farm goods such as fruit and veg from their own farm and homemade bread and jams. If you love rural locations as much as I do, you will truly enjoy your stay at Oak Farm.

Marta, Sawday's Inspector

From the moment we arrived Alicia and Christopher were the perfect hosts. Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable about the area and extremely hospitable. The Bothy was charming and cosy and well equipped. We would highly recommend at stay at Oak Farm. Thank you for a wonderful stay.


Lovely warm welcome. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.


Perfect place to stay. Homely and spotlessly clean. Fresh crisp bedding. Lovely cosy log burner with ample logs provided. Delicious home made bread with jams plus essentials e.g butter and milk. Had a gorgeous meal at the Hall inn which is within walking distance. Thank you Alicia and Chris. We would recommend a stay without hesitation.

The neighbourhood

The farm feels delightfully remote but it's a five-minute drive into pretty riverside Usk for shops, pubs, restaurants and cafés. They have a local butcher and bakery too. Raglan Farm Park and Raglan Castle are both a ten-minute drive, lively Chepstow is 25 minutes and Abergavenny, gateway to the Brecons, is 30 minutes.

Local points of interest from Alicia & Christopher Guinness

  • The small, historic, picturesque town of Usk is less than 2 miles away. Known as "The Town of Flowers" Usk is a regular winner of the annual Wales in Bloom competitions and during the summer months its streets are filled with many beautiful floral displays.
  • An excellent country pub, The Hall Inn serving food and drink, just 200 metres across the road from the farm and there are many other excellent pubs and restaurants within a close drive in Usk and Raglan.
  • Miranda Shaw Yoga offers yoga sessions in Gwehelog village hall (just beyond the pub) on Monday evenings and several other sessions locally throughout the week.
  • Wyldwood Willow offers regular and very popular, willow weaving workshops just down the road.
  • The Brecon Beacons, Black Mountains and Wye Valley are all within a short drive and there are many beautiful ruins of castles and abbeys.
  • Try kayaking on the Wye, fishing on the River Usk, cycling in the Forest of Dean, sailing at Llandegfedd Reservoir, canal boating on the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal or simply enjoy some leisurely shopping in the beautiful nearby market towns.


Alicia & Christopher Guinness

Alicia grew up on Oak Farm before spending time living in New York and Hong Kong. She and her husband Christopher returned to Wales in 2017 to take over the farm and the holiday lets; their project is to completely renovate all the farmstead buildings. They are active in the local community and are welcoming and generous hosts.
