Pant-y-Goitre is privately owned and not open to the public but you can stay there as part of a luxury fly fishing tuition package on the River Usk.
Although Pant-y-Goitre House isn't open to the public, you can enjoy seeing the house and parkland from the stunning walks along the public foot paths along the banks on either side of the River Usk here from the stiles on either side of Pant-y-Goitre Bridge. Keep dogs under control - there are usually cattle and sheep in the fields.
Decorative iron gates at Pant-yGoitre
Pant-y-Goitre Bridge which spans the river Usk, near the entrance to Pant-y-Goitre House has a strange look because of holes in the spandrel (the triangular space between two arches). These holes are meant to reduce water pressure on the bridge during flooding.The bridge was designed by John Upton and was built around 1821.
Having fun picnicking by the river!
This is the first in a series of four blog posts - the next three posts will feature the tiny country churches we visited on the same day as this riverside picnic. St Mary's Church Llanfair Kilgeddin, All Saint's Church Kemys Commander and St David's Church Trostrey.
Look out for these over the next few weeks they have some really fascinating history and hidden secrets to reveal!!

Limited parking is on the roadside near the old gates (don't block them), or in lay bys in the adjacent lanes.
