We loved our stay here. The pub opposite is wonderful and the village is lovely. The house itself is everything you could want for a break in this part of the world. Communication with the owner was excellent and the property was spotlessly clean. The broadband was certainly good enough for streaming media.

Info provided by owner was comprehensive, the cottage just as expected in picturesque spot: easy to find, off-road parking, simple decor with a homely atmosphere, while all spotlessly clean. Very comfortable bed. Great walks and visits in all directions. Pub opposite does outstanding food (check days & book).

We had a lovely time in this cottage. It was comfortable and location is perfect especially if you fancy a drink and don't want to drive! The views are amazing. Stairs are extremely steep but by the end of the week we ran upstairs!!

The Baker's House is the perfect base for a walking holiday. It is situated directly on the Three Castles walk and close to Abergevenny with the Sugar Loaf Mountain (and vineyard!).
