The cottage was very nice indeed thank you. It was nicely furnished, clean, well organised and welcoming. The owners were very pleasant and helpful. The location was great - both towns and countryside nearby and on a quiet lane with nice views. We were happy with everything, including the booking system.
You asked us to let you know our comments after staying for a glorious week at Oriel Garn Cottage in Mamhilad. It was splendid and has to be a serious contender for the best small cottage in Wales. Beautifully presented, immaculately clean and decorated and everything you could want from superb views to comfort and convenience. Mr and Mrs Jones have put a considerable effort into this cottage and it is a credit to them and yourselves for marketing such a delightful getaway. Well done to all of you. We will look at it again for the 2014 Abergavenny Food Festival. Don't change anything – it's all there.
The cottage and owners were both fantastic, thank you!
Spectacular mountain scenery, a bustling market town and foods galore – Abergavenny has all the ingredients for a great holiday. We've got forty wonderful holiday cottages in Abergavenny and in the beautiful surrounding villages and countryside.
