“A fantastic pre-Christmas family celebration for 16 in superb surroundings”
Reviewed December 23, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Quite remote and so very quiet. Great local pub and farm shop up the road. Accommodation was very comfortable, all the bedrooms were ensuite and the sitting rooms were very cosy. The kitchen was a popular spot and very well equipped! We loved it and will return

“Simply the best”

Monnington House is in a wonderful setting . We all felt instantly relaxed in this superb house. Great space, well equipped. All the bedrooms good size with own charm. We have been going away yearly with the same group of friends for 25 years and have stayed in lots of lovely properties however Monnington House is Simply the Best

“Perfect place for large group stay”
Reviewed October 30, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Rented both the main house and the cottage for an extended family birthday celebration (14 people) and we had the best of times.
The property nestles in the Wye valley, about a mile from the main road and is in the midst of Bulmer cider apple orchards. All the bedrooms have their own bath or shower room and the beds are incredibly comfortable. The whole area is very quiet so there is no traffic noise etc. to keep you awake at night.
The kitchen and dining area easily caters for up to nineteen people, with plenty of crockery, cutlery and utensils to go round and there are 2 electric ovens and an Aga to cook from. One slight improvement might be to add more storage for food- the fridge/freezer is great but cupboard space for food would have been helpful.
We took advantage of one of the local caters to provide dinner one evening and they were excellent (Debbie Blagg- details on the house's website). There is also an excellent farm shop a mile away that is a must if you are self-catering.
The lounges are very comfortable and all have wood burners for those colder evenings. We made particular use of the games rooms (table tennis, pool and table football).
The local area is excellent for walks and for pubs/food and Monnington House is a great base to relax in and explore from.

“Everything we had hoped for and more”
Reviewed September 8, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Seventeen of us visited Monnington House and Cottage to celebrate my 60th birthday.
We all had a fantastic time - it could not have been better.
The accommodation was as lovely in real life as it appeared on the website.
We were made most welcome on arrival and appreciated the generous gift of produce from the local farm shop - including smoked salmon.
We catered for ourselves on three nights and found the kitchen to be well-planned, very well-equipped and easy to use. Cwm Clyd Catering produced a truly delicious and beautifully presented dinner for us on our last night - we can not recommend them too highly.
There was plenty of space for gathering everybody together but also areas for relaxing if you want a bit of down time. The decor and furnishings are stylish and of high quality but also comfortable and in keeping with the property.
The bedrooms are spacious with fluffy towels, very comfortable beds, great views and loads of hot water.
There was plenty to do in the area (see the excellent Monnington House website) as well as on site. We enjoyed canoeing (Wye Valley canoes), pony trekking (Tregoyd Mountain Riders), fishing (The Warren), walking, badminton, pool and table tennis - but there is plenty more.
We really felt at home and were sad to leave after such a fantastic and memorable stay. Thanks Anna and Hugh for making it so perfect!

“Simply superb”
Reviewed August 19, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Our group of 15-20 friends with their families have been spending a summer week together for the last 25 years at home and abroad and Monnington House is one of the best places we have visited.
The welcome pack included smoked salmon and a delicious whole Brie but the entire experience reflected the owners' attention to detail. Egyptian cotton sheets, power showers that packed a punch and every amenity that a demanding group could wish for. All this set in the rural idyll of the Wye Valley - Bliss!
