Hotels in Usk
The small market town of Usk in South East Wales is well worth a visit for its picturesque setting in Monmouthshire on the River Usk, fascinating heritage sites including Usk Castle and the Rural Life Museum, and the town's award-winning floral displays. As a rural Welsh town you might be surprised to find that Usk hotels range from simple B&Bs and cosy inns to a substantial hotel with space for formal events.
In simply walking around Usk in the spring and summer you will fall upon several of the town's beautiful floral displays. Usk was awarded the Wales in Bloom award in the Country Town class in July 2014, a testament to the town's charming and picturesque beauty.
You will find a number of pubs, small restaurants and independent shops dating as far back as the 15th century on Bridge Street, Usk's narrow main street, including several antique shops. As you continue through the town, you will come to Twyn Square, where a commemorative clock tower to Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee in 1887 stands.
Usk is home to the Gallery in the Square, showcasing the work of local artists as well as smaller craft items, as well as the twice-monthly Usk Farmers' Market that can be found to the edge of the town in the Memorial Hall.
Local history and heritage sites
Usk Castle is an enchanting medieval castle, perched on a hill overlooking the town. Having fallen into disuse nearly 500 years ago, Usk Castle is a Grade I listed building made up of several ruins, including Castle House, the Dovecote Tower and the Gatehouse. Usk Castle is open most days throughout the year for visitors to discover free of charge.
The Usk Rural Life Museum documents the life of country people on the Welsh Borders since the Victorian period, housing an impressive collection of over 5000 artefacts. The museum itself is located inside a 16th-century barn with artefacts ranging from vintage tractors and an original forge to intricate hand tools.
Usk's 12th-century church, St Mary's and the Priory Gatehouse, are must-visits for true heritage lovers. The church's most historical architectural elements date from between the 12th and 15th centuries, with the most recent additions made in 1900. St Mary's crossing, where the nave and transepts meet, and the font are both 12th-century features, while the Grade I listed Priory Gatehouse is a remnant of a 12th-century Benedictine priory.
Explore the great outdoors
A stay in Usk would be incomplete without venturing out into the stunning Welsh countryside, including the Wye Valley, the Forest of Dean and the Brecon Beacons.
One particular highlight is the Usk Valley Walk, which leads walkers upstream of the River Usk to its source in Brecon. The route encompasses the charming Abergavenny and Crickhowell along the way as well as an abundance of picturesque rural landscapes of meadows, woodland and the riverside. You will pass several inviting riverside pubs to take a break and those who make it to the end you will be rewarded with unspoilt views of the Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains.
