“A very disappointing experience”
Reviewed 4 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

people found this review helpful

We booked this property as it was near to our grandchildren's home and looked lovely in the brochure.On our arrival we attempted to make tea in the teapot which was full of mould. Mugs and plates were chipped.
We then used the washing machine which turned out not to be working so we were left with wet smelly clothes.The owner did launder the clothes herself but the washing machine was out of action for the rest of the week.
We asked the owner if it would be possible for our grandchildren to come to us for tea.She said that was fine and they could run around and play in the garden.Myself and my daughter in law were supervising them, as the patio at the back of the house is in a state of disrepair and dangerous and we were also mindful of keeping near to the cottage away from the main house in respect of the owners privacy.My two grandsons were playing football when we heard a voice shouting angrily directly at the children demanding they stop kicking the ball on the flower beds.This was apparently the owners mother . She made no effort to come and speak to us ,which I would consider an appropriate course of action. Both the adults and children were shocked by the tone and inappropriate nature of this .We are responsible people and would never allow the children to do anything destructive.We took the children indoors.This was humiliating and deeply upsetting for us all. The owner later came to apologize for the incident and her mothers behavior.
We have stayed in many different cottages with different companies and have never experienced anything like this before.The final insult was the owner shouting through the kitchen window the next morning asking us were we going as she had asked the cleaner to come early at 8.30 as we had said we may be leaving early!

“What a hidden gem!”
Reviewed 31 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Arrived late but that wasn't a problem, the lights were on and a warm welcome was awaiting. Milk in the fridge, fire wood ready to burn, fresh towels and above all else - hot water in abundance!

Couldn't believe the amazing views we were greeted with on our first morning. Overlooking The Blorenge, even on a wet, dull morning, was still spectacular. Nicola greeted us with a warm, friendly smile and lots of local knowledge and a genuine desire to ensure we enjoyed our stay - it was my Birthday whilst we were there and she left a beautiful bottle of red in the kitchen for us.

Would definitely recommend this beautifully well equipped cottage to anyone who is looking for a relaxing home from home vacation. It's also pet friendly which was simply the icing on the cake for us.

Thank you Nicola for letting us stay in your amazing Coach House.

“Stunning, large, clean country cottage in beautiful well kept grounds”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Three girlfriends and I decided to have a long weekend away from our respective husbands and climb a hill. We chose Wales, and randomly came across this little gem of a cottage, nestled near the black mountains and a perfect home away from home. The sitting room and kitchen were huge and the utterly lovely hostess had laid out hundreds of leaflets for the various activities near by. We went to the sugarloaf vine yard, climbed sugarloaf mountain and visited a lot of local pubs! The cottage itself is a stunning converted barn on the grounds of the main house which, before arriving, I was a little concerned about but it was more than fine; the family very much kept themselves to themselves (until we ran out of sugar - a quick text and 2 mins later there was a knock at the door - sugar! Really sweet of her and very accommodating) and we felt comfortable enough to have a picnic and a BBQ in the garden without feeling like we were in their way or vice versa. Truly lovely find and very reasonable in price, highly recommended.

“lovely views, fantastic locale, charming hostess”
Reviewed 31 December 2013 for a stay in October 2013

The Coach House was the highlight of our 2 week trip from California. Spacious, yet cozy with a warm fire after a long day. Great views in a rural setting but close to good pubs and Abergavenny for day trips by rail. Nicola is very helpful and a delight to talk with.
All in all, a terrific stay and would love to come back some time.
