A comfortable, well-equipped and thoroughly enjoyable stay at this lovely home. it is so convenient for the whole Usk valley, and provides excellent facilities and well-maintained garden with a marvellous stream whose burbling sounds pervade the environment.

Great location. Plenty of mountains to climb and not over walked. Only saw 2 people on a 4 hr walk on Thursday. Choice of walk types and even a walk to the pub across the meadow and along the river. Two really lovely towns with plenty of food choices. Great Flea Market in Abergavenny on Wednesday's. Loved the area. Cottage had everything we needed.

Lovely, homely house. Felt right from moment we arrived. Owners on hand if required, but were not needed. Garden secure for dogs, the small stream that runs through garden was not too deep and had an escape ramp should dogs go in. Clean, comfortable and plenty of space. 4 people and 2 large dogs had more than enough room. Property has a fixed stairRead more gate to segregate upstairs, no need to take one. On a busy road but noise did not disturb at any time. Already looking forward to going again. Hide

The property was a lovely, cosy family home. It was perfect for myself, partner, 10 year old daughter and our two dogs. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The road itself is quite a busy one, but you don't notice once you're inside. I can highly recommend a stay here for a relaxing holiday!

House was beautifully located between Abergavenny and Crickhowell with easy drives deeper into the Brecon Beacons and train links from Abergavenny to Cardiff. The cottage had all we need and was cosy and warm. Our two little girls loved it and we enjoyed going to sleep to the sound of the stream bubbling past the window. The hosts were very welcomiRead moreng and made us feel a home and were generous to the girls. The pub next door is great- gets very busy (booking recommended), No noise from it at all. Hide
