One thing we are not short of at The Bell at Skenfrith is outside space. We are surrounded by the most beautiful and unspoiled Welsh countryside. We have a large garden with a terrace for al fresco dining, a working kitchen garden with fresh herbs, vegetables, fruits and more. We also have a pretty flower garden, as well as a special area for our own marquee that can be booked for weddings and other special occasions.
Beyond the garden, behind the hotel, there is the Orchard Garden where people like to sit on rugs eating their Bell Picnic and watch the rolling river Monnow below. Here children can run around freely and maybe even do roly polys down the garden banks! In the summer, there’s paddling to be had on the river Monnow beach, beneath the old bridge, although we urge people to stay with their children and dogs at all times and exercise extreme caution when anywhere near the river.
