The mansion is surrounded by a 400 acre estate of farm and woodland with sweeping views to the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons. You can fish for trout on the pretty Trothy, a tributary of the Wye, which runs through the estate (see local map) and there is coarse fishing on a pond by the house. There are a wealth of fascinating places to see and visit within a short drive: charming towns like Monmouth and Ross-on-Wye, the ruined abbey of Tintern, an abundance of castles in this borderland region, the scenic delights of the Wye Valley, the Forest of Dean and the Black Mountains and the industrial history of the South Wales valleys and the Forest of Dean.

Monmouth, which is four miles from Treowen, has the usual range of shops for a market town, the first Waitrose in Wales and a large number of pubs. The nearest pub, within two miles of Treowen, serves food and slightly further afield a wealth of restaurants, country pubs and hotels ranging from cheap-and-cheerful to haute cuisine. Within a few miles you will find golf courses, clay pigeon shooting, canoeing, sailing, pony trekking, the Wye Valley and Offa's Dyke footpaths. (See Monmouth website and Tourism in Monmouth .)

Historic Treowen is within easy driving distance of London and the West Midlands. Junction 2 of the M48 at Chepstow is a thirty minute drive along the breathtaking Wye Valley past the romantic ruin of Tintern Abbey. For visitors from the West Midlands, the dual carriageway A40 links Monmouth to the M50 at Ross-on-Wye (see regional map, area map and local map).
