  • Clive is a great host and five springs was a fantastic space!! Thank you

    Adam2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Set in spectacular scenery the cottage is a little piece of heaven in the Welsh countryside. Clive was helpful from the first communication and continued to be as we settled in. We were then left alone in private, safe in the knowledge if we needed him, he was just next door. The cottage itself is stunning, with all the amenities you expect, and then some. I could go on about the jacuzzi and the sauna (which were both very heavily utilised during our stay), but it's the little things, like helpful hints about the area, books and DVDs and fresh free range eggs that mades the stay so special. The sheer tranquility of the place is evident by the wild stag and deer that visit the garden, and are a sight to behold. My wife and I had just got married the day before we arrived at the cottage, and this was the perfect start to our honeymoon, and to our life together. I cannot recommend Clive and his stunning home highly enough.

  • Five Springs is a lovely place to stay while exploring the local woodlands, we'd be happy to return!

    Michael2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is beautiful and spotlessly clean with everything you might need. Clive has invested lots of time to provide information about the local area and maps etc which was so valuable and much appreciated. We loved the spa room and after a long walk a sauna and jacuzzi were the perfect way to end the day. There are lots of thoughtful touches throughout the cottage that also enhanced our stay. The local area is beautiful for walking and the Brecons within easy reach. There is so much to do and we would love to visit again and explore more of the area. Clive was a fantastic host and it was a pleasure to visit and we will be hoping to book again very soon.

  • Great value. Stunning cottage. Highly recommended.

    Hannah2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cottage great facilities and a great host. It is wonderful place which would be great at anytime of year but autumn winter Spring with an excuse to get the log burner going makes it all the better. We will be back.

  • A great place to stay with plenty of open space the house was clean and lots of small touches made it a lovely stay. There was plenty of space for 30 to come for a Sunday Lunch.

    Barry2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Claire and Andrew's. 14 adults, 2 children and a dog and we all felt like we had enough space. Claire and Andrew were on hand to help with any questions during our stay and provided some thoughtful touches for the birthday girl too.

    Ross2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Claire and Andrew’s property. They were great hosts and the house was perfect for a big family weekend away. Plenty of indoor and outdoor space. The hot tub was a real highlight! Would definitely recommend!

    Brian2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect escape for a group holiday. Andy was super, made everyone feel very welcome, would go back!

    Michael2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • Maesbrook is a fantastic place to stay as a large group. Claire and Andrew recommended great caterers to come in and cook an evening meal. The extra space in the events room meant that we could all get together for a sit down meal and have a room to play some hen do games. Claire and Andrew were on hand to take in our shopping (and put it away for us, which was so lovely to arrive to), and were easily available if we had any questions. Both the smaller cottage and the main house are wonderful spaces - we’ll definitely be back!

    Sarah2019-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had the best time! An outstanding property, finished to a very high standard and extremely clean and comfortable. We had 13 people and a dog in our party and everything was set up to handle a big group. The log burner in the sitting room was a particular favourite as we all sat round in an evening and the large dining table perfect for playing board games. There was an issue with the water supply to the property while we were there due to nearby water works. Claire and Andrew handled it expertly and did all they could to ensure minimal impact on our stay. They were superb hosts and we very much hope to be back in the future. Thank you!

    Abi2018-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Warm welcome, well stocked facilities with plenty of very thoughtful touches from flowers to candles to kindling and lovely bathroom toiletries. Great hosts and idyllic rural location.

There is plenty of space to unwind, we have another cabin on site called Stargazer Cabin. However each cabin has its own privacy and space away from each other. We are not like other glamping sites. There are only 2 cabins. It is very peaceful and therefore we would not accept high levels of noise. We have our own private house and area away from the cabin out of view. Follow us on Instagram @monmouthcabins

  • Gorgeous cabin and friendly hosts.

    Sarah2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin was very cosy, and was incredibly warm once the cold weather hit later during the evening. It was extremely clean and the board games were a nice extra touch.

    Jack2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little peaceful cabin. Perfect for two people with all amenities you need :) Kenton was so helpful and met us when we arrived. Beautiful land with view and surroundings.

    Tayler2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great, very peaceful location just a short walk from Monmouth. Lovely pod and great host.

    Tom2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I had an absolutely wonderful stay here. The cabin is beautiful and cozy and has lots of little touches that make it really homely and special. It’s perfect for a little couples getaway. The location is great too, the surroundings are lovely and peaceful but it is also incredibly easy to get to Monmouth town centre where there is lots to do. Louise and Kenton were great hosts, very helpful whenever we had any questions and always quick to reply. Would highly recommend!

    Claudia2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Such a nice place to stay if your looking for a cosy, quiet place to get away! Very nice hosts and very accommodating.

    Izzy2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin was perfectly described and is in a beautiful location. We made use of the hot water bottle and the board games! It’s a really good idea for people/couple with a busy life and want to take a step back from the world! It’s in a peaceful location, and Monmouth is a lovely town! The cabin in a short drive from the Brecon beacons as well as the Forest of Dean!

    A beautifully restored stone cottage with private patio garden overlooking the stunning Wye Valley. This charming two-bedroom self-catering cottage has a master bedroom with kingsize bed, cosy living room with wood-burner, a light and spacious kitchen-dining area and a downstairs double bedroom. The cottage is 35 minutes walk from Tintern abbey and right on the famous Offa's Dyke footpath. It's the perfect place to find sanctuary from the modern world and to explore the surrounding beauty.
    A 200 year old cottage which has been lovingly restored and modernised with an ecological approach - using natural, locally sourced and recycled materials. The floors are underfloor heated and made from cob, using traditional and modern earthen flooring techniques to create a hard-wearing and beautiful floor that feels amazing to walk on. The stonework has been lovingly restored with traditional lime pointing and the roof with welsh slate. The kitchen is made from locally sourced ash slabs and recycled pallet wood, and combines rustic charm with all the modern appliances you would expect: fridges, freezer, dishwasher and washer-dryer. The heating system runs off renewable sources and is powered by two large solar thermal panels on the roof and a wood-burning stove with back boiler. Please note that in cold weather the wood-burning stove needs lighting everyday and needs frequent feeding with firewood (supplied free of charge) to keep the cottage from getting cold. The cottage is furnished with traditional Balinese fabrics and pieces of furniture from Joe's travels, creating an exotic, soulful and earthy feel to the cottage.
    Located in the stunning Wye Valley, just outside the small country village of Brockweir. The local eco village shop is 15 minutes walk away, a traditional countryside pub 15 minutes walk away and Tintern abbey is 35 minutes walk. The Forest of Dean is 20 minutes drive to the North-East, and there are countless places to explore in the Wye valley, forests, rivers, caves, historic buildings and old pubs!
  • Super location, great story, clean and welcoming. Just lovely!

    Paula2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage in a rural area. Very cosy after the fire has been on for a good while to warm the place up

    Sarah2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cottage and perfect rural retreat.

    Arun2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely cottage! Beautifully decorated & has everything you need - I even managed to bake a birthday cake. You can start hiking on Offa’s Dyke trail right from the doorstep and community cafe nearby was great for tea/lunch (& kids playground). Tintern Abbey nice & close too!

    Fi2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Clean, comfortable, Romantic for two and perfect for family. Beautiful cottage and location is excellent. We were so impressed with the renovation everything was unique and interesting. We had a short break but it felt like a real hideaway. We will definitely be staying again.

    Danielle2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing place to stay, such an idyllic cottage with lovely touches. The location is close by to great countryside walks with great picturesque locations. Joe was a fantastic host with great communication. Thank you so much!

    Ieuan2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful few days in Joe's eco-lodge. It's been done up so thoughtfully and stylishly. I loved all the wood and the wood-burner - but there are also electric heaters if necessary, so no need to worry about getting cold! The kitchen is really well designed, there was enough hot water for baths, showers, etc, really handy slippers for indoors. We're already planning a trip back in the summer, when the neighbourhood isn't suffering from the effects of Storms Ciara, Dennis and Ellen, one after another!

    Nestled in the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural beauty, the house is the perfect get away for anyone looking for tranquility and beautiful surroundings. The accommodation is bright, spacious and equipped with everything you need for a relaxing break. There are lots of footpaths on our doorstep taking you in all directions (including Offa’s Dyke path which is 200m away). The villages of Clearwell and St Briavels are nearby and the lovely town of Monmouth is 15-20 mins drive.
    Located on a quiet, no-through road, the house is in its own piece of paradise. Downstairs has a large living/dining space with a newly fitted kitchen and folding doors that open onto a patio, with a private Jacuzzi. From the patio or Jacuzzi you have views over our field and the woodland beyond. Upstairs is spacious. The bedroom has a king size bed and a Juliette balcony for you to enjoy those lovely views.
    We feel very fortunately to live in such a beautiful location. We live on a very quiet, no-through road. This is the perfect place if you want to escape from day to day life and enjoy great views and amazing sunsets. There are lots of footpaths right on our doorstep taking you in all directions (including the famous Offa’s Dyke path which is 200m away). If you fancy a pub lunch there are 4 within 1-1.5 hours walk. Slightly further, but still within easy reach, is the beautiful Forest of Dean which offers lots of walks and mountain bike tracks. There is also excellent rock climbing in the area and paddling on the Wye River. The villages of Clearwell and St Briavels are less that 4 miles away and both offer places to eat and a castle! The lovely town of Monmouth is 15-20 mins drive and has lots of independent shops as well as a Waitrose. Other nearby attractions include Puzzlewood, Tintern Abbey, Kingstone Brewery, Hopewell Colliery Mine and Dean Forest steam railway.
  • Beautiful home which was very clean. Lovely nature walks in the area. It was great for a peaceful get away and I will defiantly be visiting again. 100% recomend. The host was lovely and very helpful :)

    Amy2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay! The location was perfect for walks and the hot tub was great for relaxing. The freshly baked bread and eggs were a great touch

    Lauren2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Very relaxing location, the place was beautiful and very clean the hot tub is great to use at any time of day!

    Samantha2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great open plan space with all the home comforts. Bifolding windows that show all the beauty of the environment

    Richard2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was lovely - the place was really clean and the thoughtful touches of fresh bread, milk and eggs were really appreciated. Despite the weather, we managed to enjoy the hot tub a lot, a really good addition to be property. As mentioned in a previous review, remember to bring warm socks or slippers as it can be a little chilly on your feet!

    Kirsty2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay with some really great added touches that aren’t stated! A lot more facilities than advertised, making it super comfortable. You could very easily spend a few days here with just the facilities provided by the hosts!

    Louise2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Nice location lovely cottage very clean.

    Chelsie2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The location is incredible. Perfect for walks straight from the door, we did the circular route through the woods which the dog loved! The ostrich inn is also a must for food. The accommodation is perfect for your needs and the amenities meant we could easily cook from home for one evening which was lovely. The special touches (especially homemade bread) were really appreciated. Would definitely recommend!

    Saint Briavels, England, United Kingdom

    A tranquil haven to escape to and lose yourself in the beauty of nature waiting on your doorstep. Your 1 acre garden has places to relax, free range chickens (eggs for breakfast!) roaming, a bee hive and is full of interesting trees and wildlife. The picturesque Whitebrook stream runs the length of the garden and you can clamber down and explore. Our 18th century stone-built cosy cottage is ideal for 2 with open plan kitchen/dining/living & double bedroom/ensuite shower. 15 minutes to Monmouth.
    Our newly renovated cosy getaway is perfect for 2 people looking for a short or long break, fab for exploring the Wye Valley and convenient if attending local functions or visiting friends/family. Singles, couples, friends and families all welcome and we do have an additional double bed settee in the lounge/diner/kitchen and 2 chair beds in the bedroom. A simple breakfast is provided in the annexe and includes milk, cereal, bread & jams/marmalades. Tea and coffee supplies also provided. Mobile reception is patchy, there is a landline in the house should you need it. Wi-fi isn't available yet!
    A fab and picturesque village with real character set in a valley with a pretty stream running down to the river Wye. "The Whitebrook" the village's very own fab Michelin starred restaurant is 300m down the road from us - great for special occasions. "The Boat" at Redbrook is a great bike ride away (bit tough riding back up the hill!) but well worth the cycle (or you can drive) - an old traditional Inn with log burners nestling on the banks of the Wye - local ales/ciders and simple pub food. Walking, mountain biking (great off-road tracks), road cycling, kayaking, canoeing are all either on our own doorstep or on the doorstep of the village. The old castle towns of Monmouth, Abergavenny and Chepstow are short drives away with an abundance of beautiful villages, walks and country eateries scattered throughout.
  • Tina and Liv's place is wonderful, can't recommend it highly enough. In reality it looks even nicer than in the photos. It is a cosy cottage, very clean and warm, and with lots of lovely touches. It has a very nice garden one can use, with a stream running by, surrounded by beautiful pine trees. The location is ideal for various walks and sightseeing in local villages. Check in and check out were very easy as well. Definitely would love to stay there again :)

    Denitsa2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful country stay! FYI no cell service 10 minutes before you get close and no wifi/cell signal. I had a great walk and morning cold water stream plunge which made it all worth it! As described, but host needs to refresh the space - a few things didn't work (the light above the hob and the cable and dvd player (no wifi so this was a big deal!). All in all, a gorgeous place. Recommend and would stay again.

    Angela2020-03-05T00:00:00Z

  • We had an amazing weekend celebrating my 30th birthday at Helen’s house. Communication was great in the run up and the directions allowed us to find it with no problems. The views are absolutely stunning (constantly changing in the clouds, sun and rain!) and you can enjoy them from the hot tub! We also went walking around the area and enjoyed the countryside. There were 12 of us and all commented how nice the house was and how much space there was. The kitchen was well equipped and we used the dining room for a murder mystery dinner in the evening, and plenty of room for chilling out in the living room afterwards. Thoughtful touches like the card and chocolates were really appreciated and we will definitely be recommending this place! Thank you :)

    Kirstie2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • This house is actually much bigger inside than it appears in the photos. A great house for a group visit, plenty of different social spaces, incredible views, and spacious bedrooms. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay as a group this weekend and would recommend this property to others, too! 5 Stars.

    Paul2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Such a stunning house, thoughtfully decorated and furnished with plenty of room for all our guests. Helen was a thoroughly delightful host who was attentive and helpful, going the extra mile to help us. Scenery spectacular and we loved the hot tub, thank you so much.

    Natalie2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • There were 17 of us who came to stay at this Airbnb and there was plenty of space for everyone! The living area was big enough to seat everyone and so was the dinner table along with plenty of everything to make meals there for such a large group. The views from the house are stunning and we all went on walks and runs from the house. Helen was so accommodating and gave local tips e.g. pubs to go to which I booked in advance for our large group and was such a good lunch. This Airbnb was such a good find and we really appreciated the amenities and the hot tub! :)

    Lolli2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful house in the welsh countryside with stunning views. The house easily accommodated 12 adults with plenty of space. The house is clean and well equipped for cooking for large groups. Helen was very helpful and quick to reply. The hot tub is a real treat.

    Tom2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • I booked this for my 30th birthday and stayed the weekend. We were a group of 12 and the house was a perfect size with plenty of space for all of us. The house is really nice and Helen was so helpful and friendly. We all had a great time and I would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay.

    Jodie2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place is a quiet part of the country. Great for a getaway. Helen was very responsive and helpful.

    Sam2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Helen‘s place is wonderful. We stayed as a family of 3 generations over Xmas. The whole family had an amazing time - the grandchildren didn’t want to leave, the grandparents were overjoyed, and everyone was so impressed with the space and everything in it! (Helen even provided the tree). Clean, bright, warm, secluded, with walks all around and even a hot tub. Can we move in? Thank you so much, Helen!

For sleeping there is a private double bedroom and a loft sleeping area for kids. A simple kitchen and bathroom with shower and WC contain all you need for a comfortable stay. In front of the full glass panels that run along the length of the barn is an enclosed area with a picnic table, and in the warmer months, a bell tent for outdoor sleeping. It's ideal for families and couples alike, and up to 2 well behaved dogs can also stay.
    The Old Lands big house is a grand but kindly old place, lived in by the same family for over 200 years. you will undoubtedly stumble across one of the youngsters who lives there zipping up the drive on their bike with a Jack Russell in hot pursuit. The 1,000 acre estate with the new generation at the helm is in a period of transition, with a new emphasis on the setting up of and supporting of gentle sustainable projects on site. It’s a family affair with all the Bosanquet generations, old and young, playing part in making it come together.
  • An incredible place where you can switch off and enjoy nature. Clare and Sam are fantastic hosts.

  • A beautiful place to stay - so quiet, away from it all. Very stylish and the wood burner will keep you very warm! The farm shop is amazing, and there's really no need to go anywhere else, except if you fancy a walk around, there is a beautiful estate and many great walks. We had a lovely time, thank you Clare.

    Stable Court, as its name suggests, sits in the old stable yard to the west of the big house. With its climbing roses, worn red sandstone walls and gentle planting, the recently landscaped yard has the feeling of an old quad. For eating out, there's a picnic table in the front garden or a long table in the archway under the clock tower which is perfect if the weather is not so good. The self-contained apartment is accessed via a covered stairway which leads into a large sitting and dining room, a light and airy space with period features and a high-beamed ceiling. Off this room is a generous bedroom with three single beds, perfect for the younger members of a family to share. A small separate kitchen and bathroom are also located on this floor. Upstairs there is a double bedroom with its own toilet. The big house is a grand but kindly old place, lived in by the same family for over 200 years. you will undoubtedly stumble across one of the youngsters who lives there zipping up the drive on their bike with a Jack Russell in hot pursuit.

    The estate is within easy reach of the Wye Valley, Forest of Dean, and Black Mountains and there are castles galore on the doorstep.
  • We were searching for a place to stay in Monmouthshire for a short family break, and as soon as I saw stable court with its characterful decor and expansive grounds as part of the old lands estate, I knew we’d found the right place. The house itself is clean, plenty big enough for 5, and full of charm. Especially appreciated was the lovely outside seating area. But what really made it extra special was the setting. The cottage is within the grounds of a large country estate and you can enjoy free roam of the whole place. It’s well located on the edge of the Forest of Dean with lovely walking and tons of castles to visit. But to be honest, it’s a bit of a wrench to leave the grounds of the estate. There’s a letterboxing trail (kind of like a treasure hunt), two ponds and a boating lake. A free guided nature walk including pond dipping for newts was a real highlight on our last day. Totally recommend this as a great place to stay for relaxing and soaking up the beautiful surroundings. In comparison with other places I looked at it’s great value for money. Enjoy!

    Caroline2019-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely welcoming place to stay. Lots occupy children and adults alike. Striking surroundings well worth a visit

    Matthew2018-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Stable Court is a lovely place to stay dor a family! Great living, 2 bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen all the equipment you nees. Wonderfull surrounding, so much to explore on Old-Lands.

    Michiel & Colinda2018-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely place in a beautiful setting. Clare and Sam run Old lands with great care and consideration - and helped us on every front - on the day of our daughters graduation found us a dog sitter so we could enjoy the whole day out. We very much enjoyed the shop which is stocked every morning with fresh produce from the estates own walled garden. Sam’s nature walks around the estate are not to be missed to discover a world of minute creatures. He has been returning cultivated land to wild flower meadows, providing new habitats for wild life, creating a model natural environment. Our grown up family all loved it, though it would be exceptionally nice for young children. We rarely ventured further afield, we were so happy, eating outside, cooling off on a warm evening with a row on the lake. I don’t think any holiday could have suited us better. Roger

    Roger2018-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Old Lands was absolutely incredible. It is a very quiet, relaxing place to sit back, relax and recuperate after many days of driving on our vacation. The entire flat at Stable Court was decorated in historical, yet lovely fashion. The beds were super comfortable and the amenities available were too many to describe. Sam and Clare are just wonderful hosts. Thank you again!

    Horseshoes, Old Lands' former stables, has beamed bedrooms, a cosy sitting room and dining area, and a well equipped kitchen and private courtyard garden. On site there's a local produce shop, a children's Forest School and 200 acres to roam in. Also we have Liam & Emma who offer massage & personal training.
    Horseshoes sits in Old Lands stable yard to the west of the big house . With its climbing roses, worn red sandstone walls and gentle planting, the recently landscaped yard has the feeling of an old quad. For eating out, a long table in the archway under the clock tower is the perfect spot. On the ground floor of the cottage there's an open plan sitting room and dining area leading into a well equipped kitchen. The original stable box wooden panels and stone wall divide the space which opens into your own private courtyard garden with BBQ and seating. You can park your car just the other side of the garden fence gate. There's also a toilet on the ground floor. Upstairs are three comfy bedrooms with beamed ceilings and basic modern bathrooms/ toilets (a double bedroom with shower and toilet, a twin bedroom with toilet, and a single room adjacent to a shared bathroom and separate toilet). The big house, Old Lands, is a grand but kindly old place, lived in by the same family for over 200 years.

  • We had a great 10 day stay at Old Lands. Coming from North America, it provides a wonderful opportunity to stay in. a Welsh country estate. Cozy furnishings, beautiful Welsh textiles, convenient honesty shop and friendly people from the owners to other staff. The grounds are nice for a stroll, or weather permitting, a row on the lake - alas, for us the weather didn’t cooperate. We used Old Lands as a base for exploring many castles, abbeys, towns and pubs in the area. Highlights were Raglan (nice little onsite cafe), Chepstow, Skenfrith, and Usk castles. World Heritage Site of Blaenavon, and Roman site at Caerleon are must sees. Also the Lion pub in Trellech! Spectacular circle drive to Hay-on-Wye and back - amazing scenery!! It was always great to come back to Horseshoes at Old Lands and relax in the evening. We also enjoyed some meals catered by Penny - a great partnership with Old Lands. Thanks Sam, Clare and Amanda!!

    Wendy2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, quiet and private setting. Stylish, clean and quaint cottage. We absolutely loved our trip -- Sam gave us great suggestions on local hiking as well as activities on the property. Our kids LOVED letter boxing and it gave us something to do in the evenings after we had finished exploring the surrounding areas. Coming from the U.S., we liked that the cottage was centrally located to a lot of great attractions (Tintern Abbey, Highclere Castle, Bath, Cotswolds, Gower Coast, Brecon Beacons, etc). Wonderful place to stay for a family!!!

    Angie2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had another lovely time staying at the fabulous Old Lands in the beautiful Horseshoes. Old Lands is such a tranquil, beautiful and special place with a lovely ethos and atmosphere. Horseshoes is a really stylish and comfortable place to stay. We hope to be back again soon! Many thanks.

    Claire2019-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • The cottages at the Old Land Estate are a fantastic place stay. Clare and Sam are excellent hosts and they really go out of their way to make sure your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. Staying at the Old Land Estate is an incredible experience all onto itself. It’s in a great location to be able to easily see the attractions in England and Wales. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to stay there for our trip.

    Jeremy2019-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely converted barn with 3 good bedrooms. The cottage is great and well equipped and feels like home. We chose it because it was near to a wedding we were going to. But we discovered that the REAL reason to stay here is all about the grounds and the amazing focus on nature which the owners have nurtured. There are lovely walks through the parklands and fields, around the lake (where you can row too), and amongst their kitchen gardens and animals. The owner Sam is a serious naturalist and took us on a nature walk where he dipped ponds and caught insects and moths - this was full of gems of knowledge and fascinating creatures. It would be a great place to bring children, or to get some peace and quiet away from the world.

    Alex2018-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely three bedroomed five person self-contained cottage. Spotlessly clean and beautifully presented. Sam and Clare communicated brilliantly and openly and made sure all was ok. Lovely too that Sam spent so.much time on arrival talking us through things. Beautiful grounds very safe and generally just the best time. I even ate the spinach bought from the honesty shop. If you're looking for a break in mid-Wales this is a place to check out.

    Ian2018-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • Old Lands is a great place to stay. Clare and Sam are excellent hosts. Communication before travelling is excellent and in our case they could even arrange Christmas decorations (tree and other green) in the house (Horseshoe)! The house is well equipped, many bathrooms, lovely mix of old furniture and modern styling and spotless. The Old Lands around Dingstowe Court (the main house) are great to stroll. The area is of outstanding beauty and you can do many things in the area: we played lots of golf, but there are many opportunities for walking, biking, fishing etc etc. We'll certainly return to this lovely place.

    Anneke2018-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely property in gorgeous surroundings. We played tennis and rowed on the lake. Fabulous. The accommodation was ideal. Very comfortable, and all amenities provided. Kitchen and bathrooms all well equipped and beds very comfy. Excellent all round. We loved it.

    Julie2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic place to stay on the outskirts of Monmouth, a beautiful town. Piers is a very welcoming host and enthusiastic about the beautiful area in which he and his family live. Airbnb is very cosy and well equipped. Was lovely to arrive to a fresh pint of milk in the fridge and the tea and coffee in the cupboard. Thank you Piers! Would definitely recommend if you are looking to explore this area!

    Sarah2020-03-02T00:00:00Z

    Lower Lodge was recently renovated by its architect owners. It sits in a large garden at the heart of a farm. Just eight minutes from Monmouth, the cottage still feels remote. It has a downstairs bedroom with en-suite bathroom for the less agile, and three bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs. Two rooms have twin beds, which can be zipped together to form a superking size, making the cottage perfect for couples or families. We can also put up a travel cot, to accommodate 9.
    Lower Lodge's appeal lies in the fact that it has so many south-facing windows and is very light and airy. We have tried to make sure there isn't a single dark corner in the place. It also has beautiful views of the Cwmcarvan valley, and a woodland behind the garden, where wildlife abounds.
    The market town of Monmouth is just ten minutes away, with no less than four supermarkets, and lots of lovely independent shops, a small cinema, loads of restaurants and cafes, and a great atmosphere. It is on the edge of Britain's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), created to protect the Wye Valley, which is nearby, where Tintern Abbey looms over the river. There's walking, around here and in the Black Mountains half an hour away, mountain biking, caves and culture. Bristol can be reached in 40 minutes, and Cardiff in 1/1.30 hours.
  • The accommodation is tasteful and comfortable - offering all the amenities needed for a great stay. The views and walks are beautiful - an ideal location for walks in the countryside.

    Gary2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Lower lodge is a lovely mix of modern and spacious and rustic and cottagey. There's loads of space for everyone to spread out with lots of different rooms and seating areas. It's a really beautifully furnished. The location is so pretty and there are some lovely walks in the area. It's a great place to unwind from the world but not too remote or cut off. Beatrice and Stafford were lovely helpful hosts. Thanks for having us.

    Jo2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely house. Plenty of space for 8 (2 families of 4) and great location. We will return

    Richard2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful space with lovely decor. Very peaceful and relaxing. It was perfect for two families.

    Lucy2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely few days at Beatrice and Stafford’s cottage. It’s very spacious and well laid out with everything we needed. Extremely comfortable beds and lovely linen - we all slept so well. A great place from which to explore the area and the Forest of Dean and the children enjoyed seeing the animals on the farm. Couldn’t fault it, we hope to return next year.

    Briony2019-08-23T00:00:00Z

    Perfectly situated to explore all the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean has to offer, The Apple Loft is an idyllic getaway popular with honeymooners, walkers, cyclists and those just wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. With panoramic views across Mork Valley, guests can walk our grassy tracks, explore the old lime kilns, picnic in our fields, say ‘hello’ to the pet sheep and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature, stars and sunsets in this magical and relaxing retreat.
    Combining period features with modern quirkiness and bespoke craftsmanship, the newly refurbished Apple Loft is a detached self-catering cottage for two with original oak beams, vaulted ceiling, stone walls and a feature arched window with spectacular views. Situated in the grounds of the owners 13th century Grade 2 listed farmhouse, located above an ancient cider press and at the end of a historical stone barn, 10 external stone steps lead to the front door, giving entrance to an open plan living, dining, kitchen area and bathroom with bath, shower, sink and WC. A unique internal staircase leads to the quirky mezzanine bedroom with low level king size bed. This high spec and comfortable conversion complete with oil central heating and real flame electric fire, includes an electric cooker with ceramic hob, microwave, under counter fridge with small freezer compartment, kettle, toaster, coffee maker and tv/ dvd player. Outside, the stone archway leads to a patio area complete with pergola and comfortable garden furniture so you can dine al fresco or relax with your favourite drink as you watch the sun go down! Beyond the patio is a newly landscaped teardrop garden area complete with fire pit, stream and bridge made from reclaimed sleepers which provides guests with their own personal access to our 40 acres of private countryside. Underneath the loft, guests may use the cider press area as a welly room and for lockable bike storage. A hose for cleaning muddy tyres or boots is located in the fire pit wood store and a free drying service for clothes in the main house if the weather is unpredictable. There is also ample parking outside. A complimentary basket of wood, kindling and fire lighters is provided for your first fire in the fire pit. After which you can purchase a secondary basket for £5 or you are more than welcome to bring to your own. This boutique property is one of two listings spaced well away from each other (see also our Set in 40 Acres of Private Countryside in AONB or click on our profile to view our other cottage) and is set within the grounds of the owners farmhouse. The former granny annexe which overlooks the fire pit and lawn area is kept empty to ensure that guests privacy is maintained at all times. From this tranquil setting guests can explore the Royal Forest of Dean, enjoyable in all seasons, and the Lower Wye Valley, the magnificent borderland between England and Wales. The River Wye and Offas Dyke is 2 miles down the road and all the attractions of the Forest of Dean are within a 10 minute drive. Clearwell Caves, Puzzle Wood - a popular location for the ‘Dr Who’ series, the historic villages of St Briavels, with its ancient moated castle, and Tintern, renowned for its impressive Abbey are a short drive away.
    With panoramic views across Mork Valley located between the tiny hamlets of Stowe and Mork, The Apple Loft is perfectly situated to explore all the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean has to offer. The River Wye and Offas Dyke are situated 1.8 miles down the road (also accessible via crossing our land then follow the secluded paths and yellow footpath signs to drop you straight down into Cadora woods to pick up the trail - so no need to even step out onto the road once) plus all the attractions of the Forest of Dean are within a 10 minute drive (see our guidebook for further info for attractions/what’s on/places to eat etc).
  • Went with my girlfriend for a weekend away. We were blown away by this place. Superbly decorated and with an attention to detail I've never seen before. It was beautiful and equipped with just about every amenity you could think of. A welcome basket with lots of goodies from marshmallows to prosseco, and an info book that had everything in the area, most of which wasn't further than 20 minutes away due to the great location. It didn't have wi-fi but we didn't even need it, as we spent more time walking, cooking, and drinking by the fire, the things you SHOULD be doing on a getaway. Well impressed and would definitely book again.

    Owen2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I can not recommend this place enough, from the house itself to the lovely owners. The views are spectacular whatever the weather, and you have everything you need there to enjoy a relaxing break away. Very clean, and beautifully decorated. The hosts couldn’t do enough and were very helpful and informative about the surrounding areas. We would love to come back again.

    Claire2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • The Apple Loft exceeded our expectations. It was spotless and we were so impressed with both the quality of the cottage and the thoughtful touches and extras put in by Jenny and Jemima. They seem to have thought of everything, down to the last detail. The kitchen was stocked with tea, coffee, sugar, milk and an amazing welcome hamper full of treats...which was very much appreciated! We had a fantastic experience and have great memories of enjoying the stunning views through the window. We also thoroughly enjoyed meeting their pet sheep. Jenny and Jemima were fantastic hosts. Their communication throughout the booking process was brilliant. We felt extremely well looked after throughout our stay as they were on hand if we needed anything. We had a wonderful time and we honestly cannot recommend staying at Apple Loft enough. Thank you both.

    Natalie2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • The property is so beautiful and stylish, it is clear that great attention to detail has been applied throughout. Lovely touches throughout for extra comfort. Gorgeous views from the barn style windows and amazing amenities. The pictures show a lovely location however they really don’t do this amazing property justice. Can’t wait to book and return. 10/10

    Laura2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you so much for our stay - what a wonderful property and great hosts!

    Tim2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • The best Airbnb either of us have ever stayed in. Beautiful, cozy space perfect for a weekend away from the city. The hosts were really friendly and flexible re check-in and check-out and all communication was smooth. Being off the grid with no WiFi and signal was a blessing and gave us the peace of mind and the chance to switch off that we needed to make the most of such a lovely property and part of the world.

    George2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Jenny and Jemima's place is even more beautiful than the pics. We spent a very relaxing couple of days there. Stunning countryside with easy access to some lovely walks; great local tips for food and stuff to do; stylish and beautifully finished space (particularly loved the bath & windows). Looking forward to returning again in the summer.

    Georgia2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • The Apple Loft is a beautiful cosy little space perfect for a weekend to get away from everything. We arrived on our first trip away together to a warm welcome from Jenny & Jemima and then didn’t see them again until we left - we didn’t need to! The apartment had everything we needed, was sparkling clean and had lovely touches throughout. The location couldn’t be much better as you’re not far from loads of interesting places no matter which direction you go, and there are loads of guides to give you ideas as well as some handy tips in the information pack. From the start it was easy to communicate with Jenny & Jemima and we got a great feeling immediately. They certainly put a huge amount of care and attention into this apartment and we’ll be back to visit again!

    A romantic country retreat in the heart of the Wye Valley on the edge of the Forest of Dean. An ideal base for exploring all the fantastic activities and sites that the local area has to offer. Whether you enjoy mountain biking, rambling, canoeing, or soaking up some English and Welsh heritage - the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean really do have something for everyone. We will happily answer any questions you have about the local area to ensure you get the most out of your stay.
    This beautifully and sympathetically, renovated cosy cottage is nestled in the village of Redbrook and literally sits on the England & Wales border - the border is a brook that runs through a culvert under the cottage so you can take a shower in England and then make yourself a cup of tea in Wales! The cottage is equipped to a high standard with everything you'll need for a comfortable stay and a relaxing holiday. With upside down living, you'll find the cosy bedroom downstairs with a luxury king-size bed and underfloor heating, plus a double ended bath and power shower to help you unwind after a long day exploring. Upstairs the open plan kitchen and living area provides all mod-cons to make your stay as comfortable as possible, and there is an upstairs private decking area with a BBQ so you can sit out and enjoy the view across the valley whilst listening to the brook babbling by.
    Redbrook is a small village on the England/Wales border, which sits on the shores of the River Wye. The cottage is a 5 minute stroll into the centre of the village where you will find a fantastic village shop, a village green and 2 pubs (one in England, one in Wales - which makes for a great atmosphere during the Rugby!) It is just 2 miles from the historical market town of Monmouth and has many local attractions. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area which has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
  • The accommodation was excellent, very clean and had everything you could possibly need, it’s nice and close to the village and local pubs. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay here again in the future.

  • Thank you so much for such a beautiful stay. Homemade brownies, fresh eggs, loads of ideas of stuff to do and the most beautiful, clean little cottage. We’ll be back. Keith and Evie x

  • Such a perfect little cottage, everything beautifully done, clean and welcoming. Perfect for a break away from it all.

    Nathan2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I had the most relaxing weekend at this beautiful cottage in the Wye Valley. Leading up to out stay we were concerned about the flooding in the area, however Rebecca was fantastic at keeping in contact and updating us on the road closures. The cottage was everything we could have wished for and provided us with the perfect retreat in the countryside. It was clean, comfortable and the little touches of eggs from their hens and home made banana bread made us feel very welcome. We loved our stay and would recommend it to anybody, and we will definitely be booking to stay again in the future.

    Emmeline2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

  • A perfect escape in a beautiful location. The cottage is very cosy and decorated to a high standard. Totally spotless and all the cooking appliances and utensils you’d need to cook whilst there. 100% recommend if you’re staying in the area as it’s very well located to get to most posts of interest.

    Relax and kick back in this beautiful, homely and luxurious cottage in the heart of the stunning Wye Valley. This much-loved holiday home is newly renovated to high standards with high quality rustic touches and feel-good factor in spades. The cottage is in the centre of Redbrook - a thriving village on the River Wye. Outdoor-lovers will be spoilt for choice with first-class walking, canoeing and mountain-biking on your doorstep.
    A warm welcome to Wheelwright's Cottage! We pride ourselves on attention to detail and invite you to treat yourself to a real 'home from home'. If you want to switch off and rejuvenate, you're guaranteed an amazing night's sleep in the super comfy king-size bed. The cottage has all the modern home comforts you'd expect, too - including a dishwasher, fast WiFi and good selection of Sky channels. In the mornings, wake up to a powerful shower and a coffee on the patio surrounded by nature and the sound of the stream. On autumn evenings, get toasty in front of a roaring woodburner or dig out a selection of board games.
    If you make it out of the cottage, you'll find Redbrook to be a welcoming village with great amenities. Pop into the shop / Post Office for local tips and delicious home-made cherry pie! We swear it's the best we've tasted. There are two good pubs; The Bell is known for its live music night on Fridays and meandering conversations with the locals! The Boat is on the other side of the footbridge and offers an 'oldie worldie' setting with roaring fires and a stunning terraced beer garden overlooking the river. There is a village green on the banks of the river with access for canoes, and a well maintained playground.
  • Came for a birthday weekend in the Wye valley. Lovely space to spend it in! Lots to do near by and some good places to eat but also had a lovely eve cooking for ourselves and getting cosy by the fire! (also very nicely decorated)

    Jack2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at Sarah's place. It was clean, cosy and perfectly located for a weekend of exploring. The setting is beautiful and there are walks quite literally on the doorstep. We enjoyed a lovely walk along the far side of the river one morning. Good pubs in walking distance, plus a well stocked local shop as well as quick access to larger towns like Monmouth. A great base that we'd love to come back to.

    Rebecca2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place to stay. Lovely and quiet. Perfect accommodation and great host. Location is stunning and peaceful. Great place to unwind and reflect.

  • Very good!

    Rich2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • If it’s a romantic getaway you want this place is perfect! The cottage is modern and stylish and it’s facilities faultless, from the fully equipped kitchen to the log burner. Really thoughtful touches like the good selection of board games (can never rely on the weather!!) and the home made cherry pie waiting for us in the fridge. Wheelers Cottage is the perfect base for the most amazing walks and there are a couple of pubs and a well stocked shop all within walking distance......Sarah is a fantastic host and we can’t wait to come back again.

    Samantha2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect cottage, very welcoming, comfortable and little touches like the cherry pie and milk were appreciated. The log burner was very toasty and easy to light. Both pubs great, found the Boat Inn very friendly. Great walks from and near the cottage. Overall highly recommend. Quick responses from Sarah and help from Claudia with a small problem, sorted immediately.

    Niki2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is lovely - solid, beautifully converted and cosy in the winter. Its location, a ten minute walk from the centre of Redbrook village, is great if you want to walk to the river Wye, pub(s) or shop / post office. Wheelwright Cottage is a quality place, there was loads of hot water, cotton sheets, fluffy towels, cherry pie, milk....the list goes on. In terms of support, help was there almost immediately when we had a minor technical problem which was sorted in seconds - you can’t ask for more than that! Sarah messaged us to say the cottage was ready before check-in, which was a kind touch. A charming discovery we made was that the brook we could hear running close by the cottage marks the boundary between England and Wales. If you stay here you will be in Wales!

    Janey2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Would highly recommend. The property is very nice, spotless and welcoming. Really nice touch with the boardgames 😊 the village is lovely and central, thanks for a lovely weekend!

  • This cottage is very large and nicely laid out. It's in a lovely quiet spot, yet extremely accessible. I stayed for work so I didn't get out but there are plenty of attractions very close by. I would recommend abergavenny town, walks up the mountains or The Big pit is also surprisingly interesting. Also close by is Raglan play barn and farm which is awsome for kids. The cottage had everything I needed and I would definitely stay again. Thanks! Wendy

  • Zoe and Merv were absolutely top hosts. Friendly and really accommodating. A lovely cosy place surrounded by gorgeous horses, perfect for our small family (a couple with a 6mth old baby). The cottage is perfectly located for exploring the Brecons and rural Monmouthshire. We'll be back again! When there isn't the 'storm of the century' passing through again, hopefully!

  • The Rookery Cottage was outstanding. A beautiful place in just at the edge of the village. An excellent place to stay when you're exploring things in and around the Forest of Dean. The local village pub serves amazing food, and is a great atmosphere. We stayed two nights and found the cottage perfect for our needs. Everything was simple, easy to find and the lock box made checking in and out a breeze. Highly recommended!

    Duncan2020-03-15T00:00:00Z

    Terry2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Rookery Cottage is clean, warm, cosy and I can imagine that in the summer using the back garden is delightful But in winter, there was a hose to wash dog down and the cottage was toasty warm. Newland is in a really pretty area, ideal for exploring the Forest of Dean as close to Coleford village and all the lovely Wye Valley walks and pubs but not far from all the cycle and walking routes around Speech House.

    Chesil Bank is set in the stunning countryside just 2miles ( and on a bus route) from the beautiful market town of Monmouth. The Wye valley is on the door step with the rivers Wye and Monnow brilliant for water activities. A hop over the back field will take you to the glorious Buckholt woods, brimming with flora and fauna. This area is renowned for cyclists and we are actually on the John O' Groats to Land's End cycle route!
    Our rural working home is perfect for walkers, cyclists and those looking for a warm, friendly and homely atmosphere.
    Buckholt is a linear hamlet just two miles on the Hereford road outside Monmouth. The countryside is wonderful- hilly in places! There is a pub a mile along the road. Monmouth is full of history, delightful shops, pubs and cafes with the river running through it.
  • Wendy's place is absolutely perfect. A lovely couple with outstanding hospitality, a gorgeous house and great breakfast. You would be missing out not to stay...

    Milly2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    Beautiful self contained and very private wooden pod with kitchen (hob, fridge, microwave, basic cooking utensils), bathroom (electric shower, toilet, washbasin), bed (single or double), balcony, heating. Linens & towels included. Suits one person or couple. Very easy access to M4, M5. At same time Trealy is secluded and private: 138 acre organic farm with stunning views to Black Mountains and glorious sunsets. Fire bowl outside and unlimited firewood.
    Trealy is very special. A beautiful secluded spot with orchards, trees, wild flowers, birds. Exceptional wildlife and peacefulness. You are welcome to walk the land. There are woods, pasture, animals, hillsides and flat fields. Stunning views across to the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons. You are welcome to have BBQs and be very private during your stay. The pods are quite spacious but a design flaw is that if the bed is a double the bathroom door has to be open. This is why I only charge £5 for second person.
    Monmouthshire and neighbouring counties is a great area! Kayaking, cycling, walking, visiting castles, great food, some lovely pubs, river swimming. All very easy and nearby. Favourite spots: Wye Valley(river, walks, kayak hire, safe cycling, Tintern Abbey); Hay on Wye (books, books, cafes, books); Symonds Yat (walk, rare peregrine birds, kayak, eat); Abergavenny (great eating); Raglan Castle; White Castle; Big Pit; Forest of Dean (walking; zip wire; cycling). Climb Sugar Loaf (easy), Skirrid, Black Mountains, Offas Dyke. Llanthony Valley (Abbey, pub, walk). Special restaurants: The Hardwick, The Foxhunter, Thai Cafe Monmouth, The Chapel Abergavenny.
  • The pod is bigger than the pictures make it look, and very comfortable. There are two pods on the farm, and this one is closer to where you park and easy to get to. The other is further to walk, but more remote, which may suit you. For runners, I couldn't really explore any farm routes as it was too wet, but it's just over a kilometre to the main road down the track, and you can find a hilly route to neighbouring villages. The return kilometre is steep though, so leave something in the tank.

    Pat2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay !! A beautiful part of the country and amazing scenery, walks and friendly people . Definitely will be staying here again and would recommend anybody wanting a quiet peaceful relaxing stay to book this pod immediately

    Daniel2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

    Jamie2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • We decided to spend Christmas away from the hustle and bustle of the city and couldn't have picked a better place! The pod is such a lovely little cabin, more spacious that it seems on the photos. It was very clean, had everything you needed to settle and Ruth had kindly put the heating on before we arrived. The bed is very comfortable, easy to pull out and back in, the shower is great and warm, the kitchenette well equipped. We were able to make a fire on Christmas day and cook a big fish on the BBQ, what a treat! The views are stunning, the walks in the fields were beautiful. It is the perfect place for nature lovers. Ruth was absolutely wonderful too. She kindly offered to pick us up from the train station (30 min away!) and was very helpful providing any little extra we asked as there is no shop nearby (we don't have a car) and we arrived in the evening. It is however recommended to come with food and drinks :-). Ruth also gave us more support to try find taxis (bank holidays aren't great!). She is just a really kind and caring person, we wished we had more time and invited her for drinks at the pod! I'm excited for those who will discover this little jewel next.

    Geraldine2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Ruth's place has beautiful views and is very cosy! Very friendly host and calm surroundings

    Jess2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Ruth’s cabin was a great size for a young couple like us. Perfectly located out in nature. We love cooking and although the cutlery/crockery was a bit miss-matched, we managed to create all the meals we wanted to in the cabin. The bed is so easy to pull out and put away every day, no trouble at all. It was quite hot the time we went so we often had the windows and doors open, you do get the sound of the wind whilst it through the windows which can get quite grating but it was a very minor issue. I would definitely stay here if you fancy time away from busy life and quality time in nature. This was the most perfect get away and we will definitely be visiting again. Thank Ruth!

    Lauren2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Ruth's place was fantastic. Such a lovely and quiet place. The pod is perfect for two. I highly recommend.

    André2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • The setting for this beautiful pod is truly amazing, surrounded by nature & a real place to get away from it all! The pod actually had more space than I thought it would, especially the bathroom, which was great. Ruth was very accommodating. Just make sure you read the directions!

  • We experienced all the weather & four seasons within a few days! The Valley is breathtaking, so if you love to see rainbow after rainbows, this is the place to be! The donkey shed is very spacious yet cozy, you can’t go wrong with enjoying the amazing view with a wood burner crackling beside you! The B/country roads were as you would expect, but it’s very well maintained even in the remote locations. We actually enjoyed the drive there too. We would 100% recommend the donkey shed!

    The surrounding area to Court Robert is tranquil. However, we are just a short distance from many country pubs and local amenities including a pharmacy, garage and post office. Court Robert is located between Abergavenny and Monmouth, two ancient market towns. There are several fantastic walks which you are able to access straight from Court Robert. From the driveway you are able to see the legendary Skirrid Mountain, home to St. Michael's Church at its summit. We're also lucky to be surrounded by significant historic sites, including; Usk Castle, White Castle and Raglan Castle- the childhood home of King Henry VII.
  • Christine was a very friendly and welcoming host. Her property was easy to find down the country roads and her sculpture garden was impressive.

  • Such a unique space to spend a few nights. Bear in mind the bed space is small and if you’re tall, like my husband, you’ll find your legs are a little cramped. Lovely and clean. Hosts were lovely and the surrounding area was beautiful.

    Emma2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful stay in Monmouth, it really doesn’t get better than this cabin! Everything in the cabin has been really thought about and makes the stay even better. Cosy cabin perfect for a little getaway at any time of year.

    Chris2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful little cabin. Perfect for a couples night away and all the little touches made it really special

    Libby2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • This is a quirky, quiet and peaceful place to stay in such a lovely huge old walled garden. It’s been recently finished and smells deliciously of wood. The little cabin bedroom up the steps is a romantic delight and we saw thousands of stars.

    Richard2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

    Our mobile home is located on the edge of our farm in rural south east Wales. It's a fully self contained centrally heated home with living area, kitchen, bathroom, terrace and two bedrooms (one double and one twin beds) plus a pull-out sofa-bed in the living room. The large living area has lovely views out over the rolling hills and nearby welsh mountains. We have a working farm with beef cattle, pigs, sheep, chickens, ducks, and three friendly alpacas (Alfie, Albert and Bertie).
    We are a working farm we enjoy showing our guests around and explaining about our animals and how we care for them. Only happy animals here! The home is stocked with toiletries, towels and bed linen. We provide a fruit bowl, our award winning free range eggs, bread, milk, squash and breakfast essentials. We can also provide fresh meat from our farm (bacon, burgers, steaks, etc), perfect for the BBQ. Let us know what you'd like and we'll be happy to provide these at any point in your stay for a small extra charge.
    The mobile home is in rural Wales between Monmouth and Abergavenny. There is plenty of walking and hiking in the local area, lovely local restaurants and pubs, plenty to do with children from water slides to a butterly zoo!
  • Lovely farm stay. Bring your wellies and enjoy the views and meet the animals. Brilliant hosts, just really genuine people who clearly love what they do and care for their animals. Plenty of space and all you need for a restful stay.

    Yvonne2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • A small bungalow perfect for a family stay. Being surrounded by animals, being able to go see them, touch them, Rosemary's explanations. Close to major sites to visit.

    Juliet2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Having read previous reviews we already knew that our children would enjoy the experience of staying on and seeing the animals on the farm. However, Rosemary and Adrian went above and beyond to talk to us about and let us see all the animals. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay and will definitely look to go back again. The accommodation is well located to explore the local area. It is well priced and a great find with a lovely family feel.

    Chris2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great location. The accomodation was roomier than expected.

    Clive2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible people! Amazing location! Outstanding hospitality! Thank you!

    Zo2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place for summer farm stays. Kids would love it with friendly animals around.

    Vishwas2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time staying on the farm. The caravan was excellent, just what we needed to keep out of the cold - cosy and inviting. Rosemary and Adrian (and Adrian's Dad!) were very welcoming and friendly and our son had a lovely time seeing the animals and getting filthy! 😁 I honestly did not want to leave - it's the perfect place to unwind and forget about normal life for a bit. We hope to be back again sometime to see more of the area when the weather is warmer!

    Spring Cottage enjoys a peaceful setting surrounded by indigenous forest set above the River Wye. Graded 5 Stars by Visit Wales, the cottage was completely restored a few years ago and offers modern and comfortable accommodation that retains its original charm. Featuring two bright and pretty bedrooms, an attractive bathroom, kitchen with a range of modern appliances, dining area with oak table and chairs, cosy lounge with wood burner, detached studio/conservatory and extensive garden/woodland.
    As people who enjoy breaks in holiday cottages ourselves we understand the importance of a well-equipped, comfortable and clean cottage and that is exactly what we strive to provide. You can expect to arrive to a spotless cottage, with beds made using premium cotton sheets, Egyptian cotton towels laid out and all essentials (loo roll, salt, pepper, coffee, soap, dishwasher tablets etc.) provided together with a few luxuries (locally laid eggs and freshly baked bread). There is additionally free wi-fi in the cottage. The ground floor contains the sitting room which is the perfect place for relaxing after a days’ walking or enjoying a cosy night in in front of the fire. It has a natural stone floor, wooden beamed ceiling, two double sofas, a modern fully glazed woodburner, a television and DVD player. There is also a bookcase stocked with novels, magazines, DVDs and board games. The recently fitted cottage kitchen/dining room is very functional with an electric hob and cooker, extractor hood, dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer, toaster and kettle. The room has an oval oak dining table and chairs and phone/mp3 player dock for playing music. The kitchen is well equipped with cookery equipment and utensils, crockery and kitchen and dining linen. Larder essentials are also provided including tea, coffee, sugar, salt and pepper, olive oil, washing up liquid, soap and dishwasher tablets. Adjacent to the kitchen is the utility room with storage for boots and coats, a washing machine, ironing board, iron and counter-top freezer. A covered external walkway leads from the utility room to the conservatory which has a comfy 3-seater sofa and table and is the perfect place for an afternoon read or as a playroom for children. The first floor is accessed via an oak staircase off the lounge. The bedrooms and hallway have thick natural wool carpeting, hand painted furniture and solid wood windows with stunning views over the valley. There are two bedrooms in the cottage – the master bedroom has a kingsize bed and the second bedroom either two singles or a king (please specify your preferred arrangement when booking). Beds will be made before your arrival and the towels will be laid out. All bed and towel linen is 100% Egyptian cotton. The Bathroom has a full length bath with separate shower above, heated towel rail, WC and counter top basin. The bathroom also benefits from some of the best views of the valley from the cottage. Spring Cottage is set within an acre of its own land which includes a pretty cottage garden. A barbecue and outdoor table and chairs are provided during the warmer months. Above this garden is an apple orchard and beyond this is woodland, which is blanketed in bluebells during the spring. Parking for two vehicles is available in the driveway. Please note vehicular access to Spring Cottage is via a one and half mile long narrow single-lane road which whilst suitable for cars is not suitable for vehicles larger than a Ford Transit. Children of all ages are very welcome. We can provide a highchair and travel cot if requested but don’t provide cot linen as guests generally prefer to bring their own. We also have toys, books, board games and DVDs to keep our younger guests entertained! We are dog friendly! Up to two dogs are welcome at Spring Cottage but in the interests of other guests they are not permitted upstairs or on the furniture. A fee of £5 is payable per dog per night to cover the additional time needed to thoroughly clean the cottage for the next guests.
    Spring Cottage is spoilt by the number of great options for places to eat and drink nearby including the following favourites: The Brockweir Inn, with it’s open fire, serves wholesome pub food, ale and cider and is a short one mile walk from the cottage. Tintern, two miles away, has a number of pubs. Our favourite for steak is The Rose & Crown Inn in Tintern and for a fine view of the Abbey and a hearty pub meal The Anchor Inn. A little further afield are two fine gastro-pubs both serving quality food in traditional pub surroundings: The Inn at Penalt and the Ostrich Inn in Newland are both 10 miles away. For fine dining, we would thoroughly recommend the Michelin Star restaurant The Whitebrook, which is 8 miles from Spring Cottage. Past guests of Spring Cottage have also recommended a number of restaurants in Monmouth (15 miles) including The Misbah and No 7 Church Street for Bangladeshi and modern European food respectively.
  • We stayed at the cottage with our 4 month old baby. It was spacious, so clean and incredibly quiet and peaceful. It's tucked away at the end of a country lane so all you can hear are birds and nature! There is a garden room which was perfect for practicing yoga or having a quiet read in - an extra hideaway! The log burner was so relaxing, and the bed incredibly comfy. Even with our baby waking I slept really well! I want to own somewhere like this cottage :-) its also in the perfect location for lots of walks.

    Annie2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Spring Cottage made the perfect Xmas getaway for my partner and I and our dog (which left a spare room with two single beds unused - so plenty room for families/bigger groups) . The place was pristine and very homely providing everything we could need and more, even a decorated Xmas tree. The location is stunning and very peaceful, lots of owls to be heard at night and great adventures to be had in walking distance so that we could abandon driving for a few days. The kingsize bed was like sleeping on a cloud, the bath lovely and deep and plenty of wood for the log burner, perfect for relaxing after long muddy walks. The kitchen is big and well equipped so made preparing our Xmas dinner a joy. We'd love to see the area in the Spring/Summer, so hope to book another stay. Would highly recommend.

    Jennifer2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really lovely time. The cottage is in the ideal location. Away from the hustle and bustle and surrounded by stunning countryside and walks. The cottage was clean, cosy and warm. We had a really lovely stay and will definately come back.

    Annie2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect cottage for a relaxing retreat! This detached cottage is very homely, with a lovely sitting room, a very well equipped kitchen and extremely comfortable beds. Warm and cosy, with a fabulously wood burner, radiators and tons of hot water. We had a dog with us, and the enclosed garden and tiled lobby were perfect for muddy paws and boots etc. David was a great host, and very communicative and quick to respond to any queries. Highly recommend this hide-away and will return if at all possible!

    Mark2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Just returned from a superb stay at the Spring Cottage. It was spotlessly clean, had everything we needed and was extremely comfortable. The directions David gave us were spot on. The area was absolutely beautiful and really peaceful. The king size bed was very comfortable and we were most grateful for the heating being on when we arrived at 5pm on Friday. Just 1 thing we missed though - it would be great if there was an ice tray to fill up! 5* trip and would definitely return.

    Abigail2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is a hidden gem in the woods. Secluded and tucked away up a quiet lane, but with all the mod cons. The house is comfortable, clean and modern with nice features, esp the log burner. Beds very comfortable, plenty of hot water and kitchen well equipped. Autumn is a beautiful time to visit with numerous walks on the doorstep. Look forward to returning in the spring as there is plenty more to see and do in the area. PS. Very practical house for dog lovers.

  • Pod’s Place is only a 10 minute walk from town which was fabulous. The cottage was much bigger than expected... the living room has a very toasty wood burner and the spotless Kitchen has an amazing milk frother which gives you a shop worthy cuppa. Everything you need for a short break. Carl was a thoughtful host, thanks Carl.

    Deborah2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Pod's was perfect for our weekend exploring the Forest of Dean. The place is clean, tidy and stocked with all the essentials you will need.

    Alex2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

    Tina2020-02-04T00:00:00Z

    Corinne2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Pod’s Place is charming and delightful. It is warm and relaxing and Carl is a wonderful and easy host. Pod’s is in a great location. Just a short walk to the Monmouth village center. It is also centrally located to many wonderful attractions and lovely country walks is the stunning Wye River Valley. Carl has fully updated and restored this cozy historic flat. We will definitely stay there again if we pass that way.

    Matt2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our stay at Pod's Place. The house has been beautifully and tastefully updated, including a fantastic kitchen. Monmouth is a great place to explore and we enjoyed several fabulous local walks in the Wye Valley and Offa's Dyke (including some excellent beer afterwards!). It's worth noting that the stairs to the third bedroom on the top floor are quite narrow and winding - our less mobile relatives found it a little challenging.

Highly recommend to anyone considering staying here !

    This deceptively spacious Annexe has a kitchen area with a fridge, cooker, hob, toaster, kettle, microwave and enough utensils to make meals. With a shower and loo, the Annexe has its own heating so is quite cosy and comfortable. An ideal location for short breaks whether you wish to be active or just enjoy the peace and quiet and spectacular views. The River Wye is just a 10 min walk away and the Forest of Dean a short distance beyond. We supply all bedding and towels so you can travel light.
    The Annexe is at the end of a single track road (with passing places) and the accommodation is reached via external stairs Rocklands Annexe is at the top of the hill overlooking the Wye valley and so the downhill walk (or drive) to reach the river will inevitably mean an uphill return! Three good Inns serve excellent food on the West side of the river with either a direct short ferry or a pleasant riverside walk to the Biblins footbridge leading you to more Inns and good eating on the East side of Symonds Yat
    Rocklands Annexe is in an ideal location overlooking the River Wye and the Forest of Dean. The area is famous for its diversity of walking, running and cycling trails or for the more adventurous - local climbing Canoeing on River Wye is a very popular pursuit - with many local companies providing Canoe Hire and tuition. Most will transport you to a safe launch point at the start of a part or full day's expedition which can be taken leisurely or at a pace to suit yourselves
  • The views are amazing from the room, I can’t recommend this place enough!

    Chris2019-12-16T00:00:00Z

    Charlotte2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Many thanks Martin & Jude for being such great hosts. Rocklands Annexe was the perfect place for a much needed break. A warm, comfortable and relaxing stay which ticked all the boxes. Stunning views of the Wye Valley offered a small glimpse of heaven. We couldn't have asked for more.

    Jon2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • A stunning annex in a perfect setting. The walk down to Symonds Yat is not for the faint hearted, but the views make it so worth it. Martin and Judy had thought of everything and we had the best weekend. Definitely recommend!

  • Exceptional hosts and a truly wonderful place to stay. The weather was atrocious when we stayed but the Annexe was so cosy and the view was so stunning it was hard to leave anyway! So much thought has gone into this place and Martin & Judy were so welcoming and helpful. We look forward to returning in (hopefully) better weather!

  • We were delighted with every aspect of Rocklands. It's an absolutely beautiful annexe. Jude and Martin are great hosts, quick to correspond and very welcoming when we arrived. Waking up to such an incredible vista took our breath away and the location allowed us to explore an area of the river Wye that was wonderfully unspoilt. If you choose to eat out the local hostelries offer a good standard of food and drink; you get a really good workout on the way back uphill to the annexe!

  • Thank you so much Martin and Judy! We both had a lovely stay. All the extras and thoughtful touches made it very special. Would love to come back again.

  • Went with family including 6 and 3 year old and 6 month old. Was fantastic accommodation - clean, well laid out and in a beautiful location. Loads to do in the area with kids. Mike and Diana very easy to communicate with and really went the extra mile with all the lovely additions to the flat including food, toys, books and games. There was a cot and a high chair which was a big help too. We would definitely consider returning in the future! Great experience and great holiday!

  • This flat is a gem. It is spacious, has everything you need for a break. Having milk in the fridge and everything you need to make tea and coffee is great. The village shop is just opposite with everything you might need. Close to many walks and forest areas, it is in an ideal location to explore the Wye Valley. We shall be back !

    Caroline2019-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • Don’t hesitate to book this place. It is incredible value for money, being very clean, comfortable, well located, easy to find and Mike provided so many goodies to eat and drink. Wonderful accomodation!

    Ann2019-05-18T00:00:00Z
  • My in-laws had a fantastic stay at Mike and Diana's place. Everything you could possibly need was made available and flexibility in check-in much appreciated. It was a quiet haven away from all the pre-wedding chaos! Thanks again Mike and Diana!

    Amelia2019-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent find; ideal location with lovely views across the valley. Perfect spot for walking, and lots of maps/walking books in the kitchen which we made good use of. The apartment had everything we needed, and was clean on our arrival. Mike sent through all the details we needed in good time, and it was a hassle-free stay. The apartment is really spacious - there were only two of us but even with four people there is plenty of space, with a large kitchen area, with sofas, plus another lounge with more sofas and a large dining table, and two bathrooms.

    Hannah2019-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely property, wonderful views. Lots of nice touches. Will hopefully return soon.

    Joanne2019-02-23T00:00:00Z

    Llandogo, Wales, United Kingdom

    Cosy, detached self-catering cottage, with stunning views, exposed beams, stone walls and ample parking. Set in the grounds of the owners 13th century farmhouse, it is popular with walkers, cyclists and those just wishing to escape the noise and bustle of everyday life. Guests can walk or cycle our grassy track, take a look at the old lime kilns, picnic in our fields, say ‘hello’ to the pet sheep and enjoy the sights and sounds of sunsets and birds in this peaceful and relaxing retreat.
    This comfortable cottage with oil central heating and real flame electric fire, has an open plan living, dining and well equipped kitchen area including oven/grill, ceramic hob, microwave, under counter fridge with small freezer compartment, kettle, toaster, coffee maker, tv, dvd player and radio. The bedroom with double bed leads to an en-suite bathroom which houses a shower over bath, toilet, hand basin and washing machine. Outside there is comfortable garden furniture so you can relax with your favourite drink as you watch the sun go down! There is lockable storage for bicycles, a hose for cleaning muddy tyres or boots and a free drying service for clothes if the weather is unpredictable. From this tranquil setting guests can explore the Royal Forest of Dean, enjoyable in all seasons, and the Lower Wye Valley, the magnificent borderland between England and Wales. The River Wye and Offas Dyke is 2 miles down the road and all the attractions of the Forest of Dean are within a 10 minute drive. Clearwell Caves, Puzzle Wood - a popular location for the ‘Dr Who’ series, the historic villages of St Briavels, with its ancient moated castle, and Tintern, renowned for its impressive Abbey are a short drive away.
    With panoramic views across Mork Valley located between the tiny hamlets of Stowe and Mork, Puzzle Tree Cottage is perfectly situated to explore all the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean has to offer. The River Wye and Offas Dyke are situated 1.8 miles down the road (also accessible via crossing our land then follow the secluded paths and yellow footpath signs to drop you straight down into Cadora woods to pick up the trail - so no need to even step out onto the road once) plus all the attractions of the Forest of Dean are within a 10 minute drive (see our guidebook for further info for attractions/what’s on/places to eat etc). Puzzle Tree Cottage is one of two listings spaced well way from each (see also our Set in AONB & 40 Acres of Private Countryside or click on our profile to view our other cottage) and is set within the grounds of the owners 13th century farmhouse. The gate outside Puzzle Tree Cottage leads to 40 acres of our own private land of track, fields, woodland, stream and ancient lime kilns which guests are free to wander and explore. It is also brimming with places to visit nearby... Clearwell - 1 mile Alongside famous Clearwell Castle Wedding Venue and adventures underground at the Caves, Clearwell offers some excellent places to eat and drink: The Butchers Arms The Tudor Farm House Sling - 1 mile Everyone needs a gastropub and award winning The Miners Arms is one :) Newland - 2.7 miles Discover hidden gem Newland Church (aka Cathedral of the Forest) which just happens to be opposite The Ostrich - only another gastropub on your doorstep. The salmon fish cakes are delicious btw! The River Wye and Offas Dyke - 1.8 miles Follow the road all the way down to the bottom and you will reach the River Wye in all its glory. Plenty of riverside walks including the famous Offa’s Dyke trail. More details of walks, trails and cycle paths can be found in the cottage’s brochures, trail guides and ordinance survey maps. Llandogo - 2.5 miles Everyone needs a village shop and they don’t get much more community based than Browns. Pick up that cheeky bottle of wine or just your everyday essentials! St Briavels - 2.5 miles Discover the old fortress and enjoy some stunning views across the Wye Valley from the village. Puzzle Wood - 2.6 miles Coleford - 3 miles The market town of Coleford offers various shops, takeaways (try the Oriental Garden for Chinese), a Co-op, a Tesco Express with Post Office and a small two screen cinema. Forest of Dean (Beechenhurst/Cannop Ponds/Cycle Centre/Speech House) - 6 miles Discover the adventure and enchantment of all the Forest has to offer whether it’s by foot or bike! Tintern Abbey - 6.5 miles They don’t get much more landmark based than this. Besides the abbey, there are plenty of great places to eat, drink or have a relaxing coffee whilst soaking up the atmosphere. There are some great riverside walks or for those feeling a little more adventurous, walks up to Devils Pulpit - but make sure you take your camera - the views are Breathtaking!! Lydney - 7 miles Lydney is slightly bigger that Coleford and offers a small high street with a selection of shops and banks, a large Tesco superstore complete with Petrol Station and range of takeaways. Monmouth - 8 miles Chepstow - 12 miles Ross on Wye - 14 miles
  • The cottage was beautiful, cosy and had possibly one of the best equipped kitchens. Jenny and Jemima had put the heating on so that when we arrived in the late evening, we could cuddle up straight away with a glass of wine. There were some lovely touches with milk, eggs and biscuits there for us to use. There was a folder full of info on the cottage and excellent tips on the local area. On our second day we were able to walk straight from the cottage out towards the Wye Valley, completing a loop along Offa's Dyke to Tintern and then back along the Wye Valley Walk. Well worth it! Lovely place to stay - you'd be daft not to book!

    Kathryn2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • An absolutely brilliant time at Puzzle Tree. The welcome was immediate and appreciated. The cottage was spotless, beautiful and with all the amenities you would expect plus more. Jenny and Jemima have created a warm and comfortable space to escape from it all and the added touches like milk, welcoming chocolates and the easy to use information book were greatly appreciated. This cottage is also located close to beautiful walks and places of historical importance like Tintern Abbey, definitely worth a look if not yet seen. We can highly recommend a break at Puzzle Tree Cottage. Thanks again for a wonderful stay.

    Simon2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a relaxing and wonderful stay at puzzle tree cottage. It was a warm and cosy place, well stocked with lots of thoughtful touches. Lovely views and wildlife around. The hosts J and J were incredibly friendly and easy to reach if needed. We would love to visit again!

    Marie2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Jenny and Jemimas place is a beautifully appointed. It has everything you could possibly need for a perfect stay. It was spotlessly clean and had obviously been well thought through. The location is off the beaten track charming. With peace and quiet if you want it, but plenty to do if you want to explore. I would thoroughly recommend

    David2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • The place is spotlessly clean, everything you need in the kitchen, a bed you don't want to get out of, washing machine and easy to work heating to dry your riding clothes. Oh, did I mention I'm a mountain biker? there's Forest of Dean on the door step, Black mountains and Cwmcarn less then an hour away, Afan and BPW a bit further. There's a space to store the bikes and a hose to wash them. Not a place for you if you want to check your FB every 5 mins as there's no phone signal or wifi in the cottage (you can pick up a weak signal just outside or use Jenny's landline in an emergency. We'll be going back there later this year.

    Pawel2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful cozy cottage in fabulous location. Wonderful to be able to step outside and walk to Offas Dyke.

    Adrian2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Such a cosy, peaceful and relaxing place to stay. We absolutely loved our time here and would recommend it to anyone 😊

    Paige2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really relaxing chilled out time at Puzzle Tree cottage. The cottage is warm and cosy, set in extensive grounds, in beautiful countryside yet near to surrounding places of interest. The hosts, Jenny and Jemima were so welcoming and helpful, even giving us a lift to the pub to save us getting a taxi! I would definitely stay here again.
