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

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
