“Idyllic rural cottage”
Reviewed August 7, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

If you want tranquility and to get away from it all in Wales this is the place for you. We stayed in this cottage for a week and really enjoyed the peaceful rural location. Only about 6 miles from Abergavenny and lots of attractions like Raglan Castle and the Brecon Beacons this place is very well situated. Abergavenny is a lovely town and only 35 miles from Cardiff.

The cottage is located on a horse stud farm where Zoe and Mervin run around 40 thoroughbred horses. The cottage is spacious and is very well equipped. The only thing I would suggest to make it absolutely perfect would be WiFi.

Thoroughly recommended.

“We have not been so disappointed in a holiday let since 1981!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We booked and paid via an agent well in advance. We tried repeatedly to contact the owner as required and notified the agent before leaving France that we could not contact her. We left another local holiday rental which was great and arrived to find this was just not as advertised in our view. This holiday cottage does not seem to us reasonable, safe, to meet fire and health standards. The setting would be good only noise from owners including their 4 dogs night and day, banging doors etc. Lack of privacy. Poor cleanliness inside and out. Dampness. 13.5 tog duvet in a heat wave. Toilet and shower room directly off dining room / kitchen / sitting room. Further from Abergavenny / a shop by miles than advertised. Woken up from 7.15am by the owner who seems to have no consideration or idea. No phone signal no Wifi. We so wish we could have gone back to the other local rental which was everything this is not. 53 photos sent to agent and tourist board. See Photos.

“DISAPPOINTING”
Reviewed June 11, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

Beautiful location, large ideal cottage for exploring or chilling but standard very disappointing. Does not live up to its four star rating. Looked fantastic on the photos but they were obviously taken a while ago as the place was very shabby and not very clean.
