Across the hallway opposite the kitchen is the open plan sitting/ dining room with sprung cork tiled floor and raised stone fireplace with jet master firebox with timber mantel above. Adjacent to the fireplace is a corner window seat ensuring the views from the windows directly above can be enjoyed. Front, side and rear windows and glazed double doors to the veranda provide a light and spacious living space with spectacular views of the river and land. The sitting room layout is such that it could be partitioned to provide two separate spaces.

The Usk, a premier Welsh salmon river, is acclaimed as one of the best wild trout rivers in the UK, capable of producing brown trout up to 5lbs in weight with the average fish being around 1lb. The River Usk (Lower Usk) is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) ensuring the quality and variety of habitats are protected all year round.

The Lower Usk specifically is known as a fine British Limestone River, providing good fly life with the fishing at Alisier Lodge offering four key pools known as Beech Pool, Hut Pool, Black Pool and Green Pool, with reports of browns and grilse over the summer, sea trout in August and a steady catch of salmon. The wild brown trout fishing in this part of the Usk is excellent with good numbers and average size.
