REDUCED July and August holiday dates available at Vanilla Cottage
Ryder Cup Wales area Golf Holidays
Get into the swing at the fore-most Monmouthshire cottages for golf breaks.
Welsh Golf is just as it should be. Dont just believe us- believe the thousands who checked it out for themselves at the Ryder Cup Wales 2010 held at Celtic Manor just down the road or at the Wales Open in June .
Welsh courses are unstuffy, possible to book at relatively short notice, affordable, and in amazing scenery.
You can spend a day on a great course and an evening by our woodburner or in our garden or enjoy an eatery offering fresh local produce . Good Country pubs abound and there are two restaurants with Michelin stars and the AA restaurant of the Year close by. Take a day off the courses and visit a splendid castle, canoe or fish, walk Offas Dyke , go shopping in our market towns or the international grade shops of Cardiff -or sleep in.
All three of our cottages are ideally located for golfers visiting Monmouthshire and the surrounding area. There are 21 proper courses within the county alone- see list below -including the prestigious Rolls Of Monmouth, The Celtic Manor Resort ( Ryder Cup 2010) , and the St Pierre Marriott. Adjoining counties and short driving times via good roads just about double that wonderful selection bringing the Vale of Glamorgan, Jack Nicklaus's Machynys and many more within a day trip. You can play a different course every day for more than a month without going far from the cottage at all ( which may be why some guests come back each year!)
At both Foxes Reach and Tintern Abbey Cottage we can offer you a lockable store for your clubs whilst Vanilla cottage physically adjoins the two courses of Alice Springs . You dont get much nearer than that!
We can even help you with sourcing a caddy.
We have easy parking for your car and washing machines , tumble driers and proper heating- so no need to go back out wet or muddy if the weather is less than perfect . Our kitchens allow you to cook properly at home- and our locations allow for easy eating out. Its your choice.
Our five star grades at all three cottages mean we offer a very comfortable standard of accommodation indeed and we are also easy for pubs and quality restaurants where you can unwind at the end of a long day on the course. Vanilla has a riverside pub( closed being refurbished but reopening soon ), the restaurant and bar of Alice Springs Club in very short walking distance, a pub with excellent food walkable and a TV cheffy superb restaurant ( Foxhunter Nantyderry I mile plus the Hardwick( AA restaurant of the year 2010 ) and the Walnut Tree ( Michelin starred) each about 5-10 mins by car ) as well as masses more in under 3 miles.
At Foxes Reach there are several great pubs with locally sourced and home cooked food within 1.5 miles and another Michelin star ( Crown at Whitebrook) under 5 miles- and masses more in a small area!
Tintern Abbey cottage is walking distance to 3 hotels and 3 pubs with a range of offerings as well as a souvenir shop, book store, craft centre and more.The Crown at Whitebrook Michelin restaurant is within 10 mins drive and there are many other choices within 20 mins.
We can offer whole weeks or short breaks at all three cottages and many of our guests pack in an extra round on arrival and departure days too.
Come and play!
