About Cathy Edge
We have lived in Wales on the border with England for over 20 years. Our family has grown up on the Kymin.
Why Cathy Edge chose Monmouth
We have lived on The Kymin for over 20 years and love the rural tranquility and spectacular views combined with easy access to the shops and local activities. The Top Barn is situated in a field adjacent to our property. We often have animals in the field including cows and chickens.
What makes this Barn unique
The view is the best part. We have tried to incorporate this into the different rooms in the barn. In addition, there is a tranquility on the Kymin which means that you feel you are away from it all whilst in fact within 10 minutes you are back in town with all the amenities you require. There is very little light pollution so on clear nights the stars are remarkable.

Perfect countryside setting, delightful property!
Great hosts and wonderful accommodations! We enjoyed watching the sheep graze outside the barn each day. The property is very secluded and quiet, which was greatly appreciated. The barn is tucked away and in a very rural setting, which was very enjoyable. The views of the valley were absolutely stunning! Perfect for individuals or couples looking for a quiet retreat/getaway. Within driving distance from Monmouth township.
A lovely barn conversion. The owners were most helpful and sorted out any issues immediately.
Log burner, comfy bed and everything you could need provided.
Lovely little cottage on the hill in the countryside
The cottage was well equipped with fantastic views. Not far from The Kymin where you can walk around and explore the woods.
A cosy property in a gorgeous, quiet setting.
We found this cosy property ideal for a winter break. We wanted to do plenty of walking, and it is great to be able to go on a variety of walks, long and short, without even the need to firstly get in the car to find a start point. We would love to return in a summer-time and, hopefully, enjoy the incredible views, both from the terrace and the nearby walks, with the added benefit of some warm sunshine. Cathy and David were very friendly and helpful hosts.
Fantastic views,beautiful cottage and lovely owners.
Perfect for total relaxation. Wood burner made the cottage so warm and cosy. Breath taking views from my bed to wake up to, so much so that I had to go back to bed to drink my tea, pure heaven!
Wow! Gorgeous cottage in STUNNING location
Wonderful stay in this beautifully restored cottage with the most amazing views ever. Cottage was very well equipped, and Cathy was the most helpful and kind host that went out of her way to make our short stay very enjoyable. A great cottage in a gorgeous part of Wales. Hope to return soon for a longer stay. thanks
