Motorhome Hire Monmouthshire

The county of Monmouthshire lies within the centre of the ancient medieval Welsh kingdom of Gwent. The county enclosed by the counties of Newport, Torfaen, and Blaenau Gwent in the west, Powys to the north, England to the east and the River Severn to the south. The hub of the county is made up of the plain of Gwent and the River Usk while the east comprises of River Wye and the neighbouring hill country. The north contains the portion of the Brecon Beacons National Park, and the administrative centre of the county is Usk.

In ancient times the county was made up of dense forestation and was sparsely populated until the arrival of the Romans who erected a fortress named Caerleon and a town in proximity to Caerwent. After the Romans withdrew, the region sporadically fell under Anglo-Saxon rule until the establishment of the kingdom of Gwent. The empire fell to Harold II in 1065, and the ruling Normans began creating the Chepstow Castle to protect the crossing at River Wye. King Henry VIII placed the administration under English ruler in 1536. Between the 16th to the 20th century, the county administratively belonged to the England and Wales and the county motto Utrique Fidelis (“Faithful to Both”) is undoubtedly the final word! Today the county belongs exclusively to Wales.

The county is well-loved for its crumbling castles, ancient abbeys and striking views.
