A great little hideaway in a 200-year-old building with just six simple but spacious and well-furbished rooms in a quiet outbuilding close to the superb bar and restaurant. Tucked away beside a river in the middle of nowhere in Wales, Newbridge on Usk makes a lovely venue for celebrations, particularly for couples and small groups. It couldn't be more different than its famous big sister, the massive, 330-room Celtic Manor Resort, eight miles away.

Once the restaurant and bar empties, Newbridge on Usk is a gloriously quiet little spot in which to relax and revive.

The restaurant and hotel is right by the River Usk, surrounded by countryside with plenty of walks nearby. The town of Usk is 6 miles away.
By car: Newbridge on Usk is 2 hours from Birmingham, 3 hours from London and 3 hours 15 mins from Manchester. There is free parking.
By train: London Paddington to Newport takes 1 hour 40 mins. A taxi to the hotel takes another 20 mins.
