“Amazing views and lovely owners”
Reviewed August 14, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed in this cottage with our two small children, parents, and sister and brother-in-law.

The accommodation was perfect for our party and the kitchen was one of the best-stocked of any holiday rental I have stayed in. The views from the terrace are amazing, and just perfect to sit and relax in the sun while the kids played in the sand-pit, on the trampoline, or chatted with Ruth and Ken in the vineyard below the terrace.

Ruth and Ken are lovely - very patient with our two young boys, very welcoming, and always happy to help with local knowledge.

We went for some lovely walks along the Offa's Dyke Path, up Cat's Back and around Arthur's stone, and had an afternoon browsing books in Hay-on-Wye.

I would really recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing cottage away from it all.

“Friendly owners, there but not intrusive, excellent facilities and beautiful surroundings.”
Reviewed August 5, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This was my husband`s 80th birthday treat with our family so it worked really well booking all three cottages. A lot of thought had been put into the quality of the properties and there was everything that you needed for a comfortable stay
We congregated in the larger- Swallow Barn - to have our meals but found it hard to pull our three five and six year olds away from the large trampoline set at ground level in the garden. The weather was perfect and we spent a lot of time gazing out on The Black Hill watching the sun go down and the moon come up. Had the weather been wet a pool table and table tennis were set up in a nearby barn. Some of us climbed the hill to inspect the prehistoric burial ground with one of the graves excavated.
Our hosts were so friendly and helpful and we do hope to visit Dukes Farm again

“Stunning view, perfect accomodation”
Reviewed June 14, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We rented all 3 cottages for our family get together, and everyone agreed it was a perfect venue for family and friends to gather, very well equipped and a stunning setting. The kids loved the trampoline, we all loved the games room, and the short walks around the farm gave fantastic views all round.
Very peaceful, very rural.... roads are not for the nervous drivers! but not too far to local towns of Hay on Wye ( a must to visit) and Abergavenny. We went kayaking down the Wye one day, which is a fun way to see the countryside and wildlife, and very easy too for beginners, as the river is not deep or dangerous, but very beautiful. The weather was so kind to us we even went swimming in the river in the small rapids section just outside Hay, which has a great shingle beach backed by a large grass meadow. Great picnic spot.
Definitely recommend and hope to return someday.
