Castle Acre Grosmont
Distance from Shire Hall: 13.7 miles
Castle Acre nestles between the 12th century church and the 11th century castle of Grosmont, in the heart of this beautiful and unique village, set high above the Monnow valley, with views in every direction.
Castle Acre is a most attractive house of great charm, originally a coach house and stables, which was imaginatively and sympathetically converted in the 1970s using original period materials.The house has been extended recently in the same vein to give a larger kitchen and an additional bedroom.
There are now two double rooms with en suite bathrooms available, one overlooking the church and the other overlooking the castle. The garden provides total seclusion from the village. The shop/post office is across the road and the pub is at the other end of the street.

The local countryside offers fantastic views and some of the best walking country in the UK. Including Offa's Dyke path, the Black mountains and the Brecon Beacons. There are two other castles close by, Skenfrith Castle and White Castle which together form the Three Castles Walk. The whole area is an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Grosmont is almost equidistant between Abergavenny and Hereford,both have places of interest to visit. The area is well supplied with pubs and restaurants including the famous Bell at Skenfrith, but there is a wide choice.
