Fantastic huge beds for a great night's sleep. Super freshly cooked breakfast to start the day, and a warm and homely welcome from a lovely young couple with their delightful small children. This was our second stay and it was ideal for our visit to elderly relatives in Newport as well as for the delights of the Gwent countryside. Only... More

stayed here for the speedway grand prix weekend, booked it last year as the prices in cardiff were a lot more expensive. After 8 hours in the car from Cumbria we got great directions and lovely welcome after the Sat Nav died just when we needed it. The owners couldn't do enough for us and it made the weekend very...

Very friendly hosts who obviously take a lot of trouble to make sure that their guests are well catered for. The room was lovely with a huge comfortable bed. Everything was clean and well maintained. Excellent choice of breakfast which was served hot and was well presented. We would not hesitate in going there again.

Our son was sick in the car while driving to Wales. When we arrived we hesitantly asked if there was a washing machine we might use. No problem, they took care of it for us! That was the first hint that the owners are the most friendly and obliging people you could hope to meet. They transformed a good stay... More

We stayed for a wedding. We were warmly welcomed by Gavin and Katie, who went out of their way to make sure we got to the wedding venue without a hitch. In the morning we were provided with the most delicious and beautifully presented breakfast we had ever had (and we have eaten a fair few!). Good local produce was... More
