“Fantastic relaxing place, with great hosts and fun for the dogs”
Reviewed 3 November 2012 for a stay in July 2012

This is a lovely place to stay if you want somewhere nice and quiet and away from the crowds but not too far from civilisation. The cottage is great, it has wonderful views over the valley towards Skirid (the hill opposite) which is a good walk with the dogs. The cottage has a good kitchen and shower room, also a comfy lounge and a nice seating area outside for watching the sunlight fade away on the evenings. There is a very pleasent walk behind the cottage up the hill to the top of the Derry (its a bit steep at first but it eases off and once at the top its almost flat). At the top there are wonderful views over Abergavenny and also a good view of the Sugarloaf mountain which I managed to to get to the top of in 2 hours from the cottage (I'm not that fit but improved over my 2 week stay). The hosts Chris and Sandra are very friendly and helpful, nothing is ever too much bother for them. Fab time had by all - we'll be back!
