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 Monmouthshire

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.

Amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

What a gem ...totally beautiful place the barn has been well thought out the owners were very pleasant and were not over bearing...they greeted us then left us to it. The views from the double patio doors were out of this world...all sorts of different skies changing constantly, mist covering the lower lands while the uplands were bathed in the most beautiful autumn colours. The Kymin was truly fabulous our feet crunching through the fallen leaves...peaceful restful place. We so needed this after a couple of hard years ...We will return we have found our forever place to stay ...

Fabulous property, warm, homely & wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have found anything that would have made it better, perfect location for walking, great set up to take our dogs. Close enough to Monmouth you can go for drinks or get food but far enough away you feel like you are in the middle of no where. Looking forward to our next stay.

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great break. The property has fantastic views. It was clean, well maintained and had everything you could need for a short break. Loved the double doors opening out of the lounge. Very private and quiet.

Beautiful views from a lovely place

  • 5 of 5

Three of us stayed at Top Barn for a long weekend in July. The cottage was beautifully finished with comfy beds and a well-equipped kitchen.

The views were truly amazing - each bedroom and the lounge looked out across the valley towards the Welsh mountains. What's more, there's a little garden area too, which is a great bonus. My father was with us and he went fishing one morning and saw a huge stag on the road nearby. Plus, we all loved watching various birds of prey swooping above the tree line below us.

We enjoyed our stay so much, we were all very sad to leave! Already looking forward to another stay at this fabulous find on the Kymin.

June Holiday

We were really impressed with the property, very high standard of conversion keeping the rustic character but with all modern requirements. The views were something else! Fantastic sunsets in such a peaceful environment, the only sounds birdsong! Great walks, very dog friendly, would love to return.
