My marital partner and I took two groups of Japanese travellers to The Pentre Farm. Our hosts Geraldine and Howard made us very welcome. A most delightful setting in rural Wales, set amongst beautiful rolling hills. Rooms were comfortable, warm, well laid out and spotlessly clean, and generous breakfast provisions and fresh fruit were provided. Our hosts took time to show us around the farm, even the cows were friendly! There are plenty of eating places and shops in nearby Usk. A great base from which to explore Wales, with good access to main roads and motor ways. Definitely a place to return to!!
