“So Peaceful”
Reviewed 30 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Stayed for 5 nights in this lovely little place. It is a short drive from Usk and at the end of a short track near a church. It is very cosy and well equipped with everything you need. The TV looks a rather small for the lounge but then this adds to its character.
Mandy and Rob are first class hosts. They live right next door but are not intrusive. They are very friendly warm people interesting to talk to and always on hand if you need something.
The chickens wander around and always come up and see if you have anything tasty they could find to eat.
We had a wonderful, peaceful stay and enjoyed so many walks in the area.

“A Gorgeous Place to Stay ...”

Myself and my partner booked The Little Barn from Friday - Sunday for a relaxing weekend away. Mandy came out to meet us when we arrived and showed us how everything worked - she is lovely and very friendly.

The Little Barn is gorgeous .. cosy, beautifully decorated and has everything there you could possibly need. Mandy had even been kind enough to leave us tea bags, coffee, milk and some Welsh cakes - very thoughtful.

We had such a chilled relaxed weekend away, and made some new friends (Mandy & Rob's hens and the neighbour's cat called Gordon) and I can't recommend this place highly enough. We will definitely be returning!!

“Ideal escape from modern life”

Mandy and Rob were very friendly, and not intrusive. Facilities in the accommodation were excellent. The views were stunning, with sunsets like we have never seen!

Ideally located for restaurants, pubs, and shops, yet far enough away to feel like you have escaped the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It was lovely to see the chickens and cats wandering around (trying to join us at every available opportunity :) ).

We are very much looking forward to our next visit. Thank you Rob and Mandy. Jacquelyn and Stephen, Devon

“Lovely converted barn in a beautiful, quiet location”

people found this review helpful

Everything you could possibly need contained within this lovely converted barn. Private garden area with seating and table and bbq if required. Spacious living area with cosy fire and well equipped kitchen.Separate bedroom with very comfortable bed and en suite bathroom. Located near to the picturesque town of Usk but easy travelling to Monmouth, Newport, Cardiff and Bristol.

“A little gem!”

people found this review helpful

An extremely well maintained, beautifully decorated and comfortable property with kind and welcoming owners next door. Excellently equipped, very quiet and yet conveniently located only a few minutes from the A449. A delightful, good sized garden with seating and views over surrounding countryside as well as off-road parking.

Liked best: Just about everything!
Liked least: The mattress/bed - a bit firm for my very lightweight frame, but this is not unusual.
