About Ally Bacon
My name is Ally and I live at Old Trecastle Barn, near to the lodge, with my two lovely children. We absolutely love living here, it's so peaceful but with easy access to many areas of outstanding beauty and of interest. As a family, there is never a dull moment. Children and the young at heart can enjoy canoeing, mountain biking/cycling, balloon flights and visit the many attractions in close proximity. (We refer to Old Trecastle & Lodge as a "constant holiday experience!" ).
Ally Bacon purchased this Barn in 2006
Why Ally Bacon chose Monmouth
Old Trecastle Lodge is a very comfortable, spacious and immaculate property, with ample outdoor space and privacy too. Situated near a Motte and Bailey, dating back some 900 years. The aspect is picturesque, with wonderful wild life, such as local geese & ducks, rabbits on the lawn (if your early enough) and a few owls to spot at dusk. There is a local vine yard, safe bike rides and outstanding views of the black mountains, and so much more. The location offers a choice of great restaurants, a busy market town and immediate links to Raglan Castle, Abergavenny, Crickhowell, Breacon Beacons & Hay-on-Wye. In the opposite direction, you can drop into Monmouth town, Symonds Yat, Ross-on-Wye and Hereford, to name but a few areas of interest.

Beautiful Rural Location
We had a great stay at Trecastle. The accommodation is perfect for a family. It is well equipped and the outside space is great as are the amazing views.
It was lovely being out in the countryside, but also just a short drive to many great sites. An excellent location with Raglan Castle only a short drive away.
Ally was very good at getting back to me and resepected our privacy during our stay.
I would highly recommend a holiday to Trecastle.
Lovely property in remote location.
Rental was very smooth and accommodation was perfect. Lovely and spacious. Ally was extremely responsive to messages.
The lodge is amazing ,very well appointed and in the most beautiful surroundings
The lodge is beautiful,Ali is so welcoming and the gifts both for us and our puppy were a lovely touch.Even though Ali and her family live next door you wouldn’t know there was anyone else with you in the grounds ,except the birds,bats and sheep.
The accommodation had everything you could think of and more ,and is in a beautiful location ,You can relax in the grounds or take yourself off to the surrounding areas to explore
Escape to the country.....
Lovely peaceful location and well equipped property. Very clean and tidy and plenty of space for two or four visitors. Welcome hamper a very thoughtful kindness. Lots of secure outside space and garden furniture to enjoy the afternoon sun. Quite isolated - which is why it is so quiet and peaceful - so car required. Very dog friendly. Owners lives 'next door' - very friendly & helpful but not at all intrusive Great location to explore Wye Valley & Monmouthshire and lots of places to visit & activities for young and not so young. Stunning walks within short drives - OS 13 & 14 maps gives you ready access to the surrounding area.
Trecastle Lodge is fabulous and so is Ally
We went to Trecastle Lodge for a week in May, we had decent weather, but that is only part of the very positive story. Ally was so helpful but never intrusive. We loved the lodge and everything about our stay. Places of interest near by are; Cardiff (fabulous shopping), Blaenavon Big Pit (free to enter and operated by miners who worked the pit when it was operational), Dan yr ogor (caves which were beautiful) and the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal (where you can hire a boat for the day, we were very lucky as we have a freind who has a barge). Overall it was fantastic at Trecastle Lodge. The house was spotless, all amenities were available. We wanted for nothing.
Our lodge is set in a beautiful and safe area. The walks are stunning and the lanes are very quiet. Ideal for bikes and people who enjoy peace and quiet. But equally, 10 mins away to main Monmouth town!
