Reviews

The cottage is in a lovely, scenic, peaceful location. There are many wild birds in the area for wildlife enthusiasts. The owner was really helpful and friendly, giving us bird feeders to hang outside, so we could watch them through the French windows. Mrs Jacqueline Jones - 30th April 2018
Very nice accommodation in an excellent location to explore the area. Very nice touch with the welcoming gifts and Sarah met us on arrival to show us around the property which was much appreciated. We would have no hesitation in recommending the property and will hopefully return soon. ThanksMr Scott Chambers - 19th March 2018
We loved the location with its stunning views.
The cottage was very comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. Visit Llanthony Priory ruins and Capel y Ffin and drive through Gospel Pass to Hay on Wye. Excellent food at The Crown, Pantygelli.Couple from Mid Wales - 2nd March 2016
Beautiful views, comfortable modern cottage, plenty to see and do in area. Lots of walks. Walnut Tree in Abergavenny, is an expensive restaurant but magnificent food, as a special treat.''The Foodies'' - 29th September 2015
Beautiful setting with lovely views across the hills. Cottage is very private, peaceful and well equipped. Castles to visit, plenty of walks and local pubs serving nice food.Couple from Oxfordshire - 15th August 2015
The property was in a wonderful location and provided everything we needed. Very comfortable - a real home away from home. We loved it. Take advantage of the paths nearby to go walking, make sure you visit Llanthony Priory and the Big Pit.Eileen from Queensland - 17th June 2015
Very welcoming! Extremely clean and the service was great Couple from Gloucester - 4th March 2015
