“Perfect luxury escapism”
Reviewed 5 April 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We stayed here in January - myself, a couple and their two year old daughter.

Wow - a beautiful barn - spacious, comfortable, and with the most wonderful finishing touches and attention to detail - even down to a pair of binoculars and bird watching book on the galleried landing. The kitchen is kitted out such that cooking is easy, and plenty of equipment for making fresh coffee, tea etc etc etc.

We ate and drank, walked and lazed about. Peace and tranquility with all the necessary home comforts and facilities to make a wonderful break away from the norm.

Hay on Wye on the doorstep, with all its fascinating shops and coffee and food culture, and the best sough dough I've ever had from the Angel Bakery in Abergavenny. (As you can tell, food featured strongly in our stay!)

Ali was most welcoming - a delicious cake on the table along with some eggs etc from the farm - happy to help with anything, but equally happy to leave us to just enjoy her wonderful barn.

I have sung the praises to all my family and colleagues and I know a return trip is already planned by my friends in October with their family.

Would not hesitate to recommend in every way.

What can I say. Second visit, just as good as the first. We were two families of four and easily fit in the Barn. The converted barn is indeed a real delight. Warm and cosy yet spacious and airy. All tastefully decorated and immaculately kept. The barn retains the warmth of its original wooden structure even when outside it is blowing a gale.
Rob and Ali could not have been more helpful and the basket of goodies remains a really nice touch.
The barn is on top of a hill, not isolated but commanding fantastic views over the Black mountains and the Golden valley. Excellent walks all round for self, family and dogs.
Two cracking pubs within walking distance and the Bridge Inn is rather a bit special, the perfect country pub.
We will certainly return again and again for what has been a real tonic of a short break.

Thank you for such a glowing review - it is always lovely to have returning visitors. It was great that you had some fine weather to enjoy a few of the many walks from Cothill. Hope to see you again soon.

“Excellent, I cannot find fault”
Reviewed 7 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

A group of friends from polytechnic, we had a 35 year reunion. We rented the stable as well. This is the perfect place for such a gathering. The kitchen was big enough that lots of people could cook at once and the table sat all 11 of us. I can honestly say that I have never seen such a well equipped kitchen in a holiday rental. All the bedrooms are distinctive and beautifully finished. No one argued over where to sleep because all the bedrooms were great.
There are plenty of walks for dogs or people, Hay on Wye is nearby ( could prove expensive if you like books- ask me how I know ), and the night skies were amazing.

A group of friends and I booked cothill barn for a long weekend recently and loved it. It's easy to get to places, like wonderful hay on wye, the views are stunning and the barn is gorgeous. There was a homemade cake and some goodies for us and ali the host popped by to make sure we had everything we needed. All the rooms were gorgeous so there was no squabbling over who slept where. Perfect!

“Beautiful accommodation in beatific countryside ”
Reviewed 7 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We stayed in this beautifully renovated barn conversion first weekend in November. In a lovely location enjoying wonderful views with absolutely no traffic noise. Lovely walks to lovely pub. Friendly and helpful owners providing us not only with a welcome cake but an additional one for our Sunday pudding! The barn is furnished very tastefully and the bedrooms are all delightful and all have ensuite facilities. Dog friendly too.
