“A lovely return trip”
Reviewed November 9, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Dog-friendly, people-friendly, relaxing and a hot tub. What more could you want? A log-burning fire...well that's there too. Second trip and still as lovely as before.

“Such a relaxing place”
Reviewed August 14, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Just returned from a week at Forest Cottage. Travelled with my partner and our daughter, we enjoyed ourselves very much. The views of the surrounding countryside are outstanding, the cottage is lovely and the hosts Janet and Mike are very friendly. It almost feels like they invited you to stay with them. We made use of the hot tub and my daughter and I took up the opportunity to do clay shooting with Mike which we both thoroughly enjoyed. We would go back again certainly. It is well situated for visiting the Usk Valley and Brecon Beacons are nearby, Cwmbran is good for shopping, Cardiff not too far away either.

“Delightful”
Reviewed June 6, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Spent a wonderful mid week break in this delightful cottage. Beautifully nestled in the Monmouthshire countryside with everything you need for a short stay. The local Carpenters Arms is a must, excellent food and welcoming staff. Thank you Janet and Mike for letting us stay in your gorgeous little gem.
