A superbly appointed base for a holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Just a quick note Claire to say thank you very much for the loan of your lovely spacious barn for our holiday and your hospitality and welcome when we arrived. The place was immaculate and had absolutely everything we needed - in fact the attention to detail you offered was simply outstanding and there wasn't a single item we could think of that wasn't already there. Especially welcoming was the additional supply of local goodies and basic materials - we wanted for nothing. We also made great use of the local information table - the only problem was choosing which of the myriad of activities to do!

Thank you very much once again for everything you did - great accommodation is the foundation for a great holiday and we couldn't have asked for more! A very highly recommended residence.

Owner's Response: We would like to say a huge thank you to our guests for taking the time to write this amazing review. We are very pleased that they had a great holiday. We do try to provide all that might be required for a comfortable stay. We visit a lot of self-catering properties ourselves and take note of what is on offer. It is great to be recommended and our guests would be most welcome to stay again, at any time.

Amazing 4 bed property- very roomy, impressive staircase, all needs catered for

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful area of countryside, fabulous property. Very thoughtful host, with everything you could ever need provided. Lovely welcome basket, fresh flowers etc. Plenty of room to fit 8 very comfortably. Due to stone flooring and wood staircase, a bit echoey, and noise travels through the building, but for us a very minor inconvenience. Comfy beds, plenty of towels, and very clean. 3 bathrooms- excellent. Need a car here. Would definitely use again.

Owner's Response: I would like to thank my guest for this 5 star review. We do try very hard to make our guests welcome and comfortable, so it is great hear that we succeed. So pleased that they liked the welcome basket. Yes a car is necessary here but Monmouth is only 4 miles away with all the shops and attractions one would need. Other towns and activities are also close by with Hereford and Abergavenny only 30 minutes away. The Royal Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley are also close by. Our guest and her friends would be most welcome to stay again at any time.

We had a great time at Claire’s barn. The conversion is so lovely with the original beam work is still there. The facilities are great and Claire has thought of everything. The barn is spotless and so spacious. Amazing!! The surrounding area is lovely for walks and a great escape. We were a party of 8 - 4 adults and 4 children and we had the best time. Nav & family

lovely, well equipped property in beautiful countryside

  • 4 of 5

Near perfect property for the group of 8 of us attending a nearby Connected Riding training at Redbrook Equestrian. Property is extremely well equipped (including kitchen utensils 😃?), comfortable, spacious, has a few 'quirks' giving character (eg low beam in 2nd floor bedroom), lovely and clean.

The only 'niggle' was the showers that seemed to be affected by drop in pressure when water in use elsewhere.

Beautiful views.

Would definitely like to stay here again 😊?

Beautiful location, extremely clean and well cared for. Warm when it was zero degrees outside.

  • 5 of 5

We visited with 2 families of 4. My 8 year old's first reaction as she saw the open plan staircase through the double glass front door was 'wow, is this really all for us?' We had a wonderful time. The setting is so beautiful, with magnificent views. The barn was clean, warm and well equipped. There was a lovely 'welcome basket' when we arrived and the heating was on, which was perfect on a cold winter evening. We will definitely return.

Owner's Response: We would like to thank our quests for taking the time to write this review. Their comments are much appreciated. We do try very hard to make the barn as comfortable as possible and that includes keeping it nice and warm; there is a wood-burner in the living room as well as oil fired central heating. We are very please to hear that the Welcome Basket was a hit; it includes many local products. We do hope to see these guests again in the future as they would be very welcome to stay again, at any time.

Tastefully renovated barn in a fantastic location, superbly equipped, great personal touches

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed a walking week in the Wye Valley & Forest of Dean. It was lovely to come back to the barn each really felt like home from home. We wholeheartedly recommend anyone else to visit and would like to thank Claire for all the personal touches and for helping to make it such a memorable and relaxing week.

The Glamorgan Heritage Coast, Cardiff Bay, Swansea and the Gower Peninsular are also within easy reach for glorious days out. There is some beautiful local countryside surrounding this barn with lots of footpaths and many walks. En-route there are some lovely country pubs and fine restaurants, eg The Bell at Skenfrith (award winning).
