Tracey Evans purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Tracey Evans chose Abergavenny
This cottage is all about location easily accessible but well placed for all sorts of holiday activity.On the doorstep of the Brecon Beacons, within minutes of a World Heritage site, 10 minutes from the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean and 40 minutes from Cardiff the capital city of Wales. Yet when you return to our cottage your back in the peace of the countryside without a stressful journey down endless lanes we are very easy to find!
What makes this Cottage unique
From the moment you arrive with a home made cake and some local produce we go out of our way to make this holiday memorable. We can arrange a farm tour to show you our way of life, or arrange walks that can introduce you to the flora and fauna of the area. For the Salmon and Trout fisherman there is fishing available on our beat of the River Usk (extra cost)
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
A great place for families to stay. Close enough to Abergavenny but definitely out in the country.
The two bedroomed cottage (both ensuite) is surprisingly spacious and our 14 month year old immediately felt at home, running from room to room on the stone floors. These are well designed spaces with the feel of a cottage but with high ceilings and just the right balance of exposed beams. The weather was gorgeous during our stay and I thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside in the evening. The kitchen is pretty well equipped and it would be no problem cooking for a family of five. Being part of a working farm, the air was fresh in a truly countryside way, if you understand what I mean. The owners are very helpful and pleasant and my only regret is that we could not have stayed longer and chilled out in these lovely peaceful surroundings. I had forgotten how lovely Abergavenny and the surrounding area is on a warm spring day. We will be back when my wife's parents next visit the UK and I hope the weather will be just as kind to us again.
well presented property
This property in quiet countryside is maintained to a high standard and is located in the owners farm. Their farmhouse is in the same area and Tracey is normally on hand and most helpful. Usk and Abergavenny are both a short drive away. We are planning a return visit next year.
What a truly wonderful stay at Creel cottage, Tracey and Colin are great hosts and we was meet with a warm welcome. The cottage is perfect with all you need, modern facilities with a cottage feel. The cottage is very spacious and in a peaceful location with a great river not to far away for fishing (season time). We was sad to leave and defiantly going back next year as plenty to do in the area. Kathy & Keith Bicknell
Glad you enjoyed the world cup match
Creel Cottage Stay
We had a lovely stay in this property with a good arrangement of bedrooms to cater for different variations. It was a lovely thought having a homemade cake and apple juice awaiting our arrival. There was plenty to do in the surrounding countryside and the grandchildren really enjoyed playing with the farm dogs. We would recommend the property both for couples and families.
excellent place to relax and chill out
It was a great week holiday to relax in the country side. This cottage has a very relaxing atmosphere and refreshing before go back to work. Cottage keepers were excellent. Indeed, a peaceful, serene retreat that is close to the lovely town of Abergavenny. My family enjoyed the cottage life which was lovely, and very well equipped and so comfortable. We were able to eat in, which we enjoyed. One of the highlights was the cows and Moly the dog which will miss and we will hope definitely to visit again!
A very comfortable and enjoyable stay!
The owners were very helpful. The payment transaction was quick and smooth. There was very good communications between us, regarding the address, directions, and where to eat and places to visit while we were there. The welcome pack was unexpected but a nice surprise.
Creel Cottage that we stayed in is part of a working farm which was very clean, tidy and very comfortable to stay in for the week. It had everything we needed. it was like home from home. The owners were very approachable, very friendly, and helpful.
We ate at The King of Prussia, which served good food, if not a little overpriced. However we really enjoyed The Bridge Inn which served great food which was very reasonably priced.
We were guided on our lovely walk around the land of the property by the very friendly sheepdog called Molly, which was lovely, we had great fun with her.
Finally we were shown around the farm which was very informative and interesting - learnt a lot !!!!!! Nothing was too much trouble! We would definitely stay here again and share our experience with our family and friends. Thank you to T and C for giving us the opportunity to share and enjoy your lovely home with you. See you again in the future.
