logo-aboutAbout The Bell at Skenfrith

Situated in the beautiful county of Monmouthshire, The Bell at Skenfrith, a former 17th century Welsh coaching inn and now one of Wales’s most renowned boutique hotels, was completely restored in 2001 and updated in 2015.  Carefully and thoughtfully decorated, the polished flagstone floors, oak beams and antique furniture, coupled with contemporary comfy sofas and chairs, give The Bell at Skenfrith its relaxing and easy atmosphere. There are eleven individually designed bedrooms, all with bathrooms en suite with the classic Noble Isle toiletries, the contents of which have all been sourced from around the UK, as well as organic beetroot from our kitchen garden.

Overlooking the beautiful River Monnow, The Bell at Skenfrith is on the outskirts of the tiny Welsh village of Skenfrith. With an award-winning restaurant and wine list, it is the ideal place for romantic breaks, special occasions, intimate weddings (we have our own marquee which can be tailored to your requirements) anniversaries/celebrations, country pursuits .  We are surrounded by some wonderful walks around this very beautiful county enabling the walker to re-engage with uninterrupted nature!

The Bell at Skenfrith is renowned for its variety of walks.  We have six individual circular walks which guide the walker in and around the Skenfrith area, at times crossing the border into England and back; no passport required!  Another is The Skenfrith Sleuth which is an extremely popular Children’s Walk that asks them to search for clues and answers about the history of Skenfrith Castle – one of the famous Marches castles and an important Norman stronghold during the 13th century cross-border skirmishes, the local medieval church St. Bridget’s and Skenfrith village, situated just across the road.  This is an ideal family activity,  especially at half-term or during the school holidays. There is also an interesting historical tour of Skenfrith village, details of which can be found at reception.  For budding astronomers, on a clear night, our Skenfrith Sky is never diminished by orange light!

Whatever your reason for visiting, The Bell at Skenfrith will always welcome you and help to make your visit a memorable one.
