  • "Beautiful comfortable barn with every facility provided including on site free range eggs!"

    Unrivalled 360 degree views. The most hospitable hosts ever. Thank you for an unforgettable stay.

    Pleased your home safe and sound. Glad my friends who were looking after the Barn while I was away for a few days, took care of you all. Thought you were such an easy going couple and would love to have you back soon. Hope you had eggs for breakfast ! Best wishes Marion. Property Owner

  • "Wow! The barn was stunning, such a beautiful building and renovated perfectly."

    We were a bridal party of 6 staying the night before and some friends stayed the night of. Marion had the fire roaring for our arrival and was on hand to show us anything we needed and made us feel very welcome. The barn was fully equipped with plates and glasses, a great range cooker, lovely bathrooms, seating area with plenty of space to set up for hair and make up, and plenty of parking. We can only recommend Pentre Barn ❤️

    Congratulations to Robyn and Mark on getting married. I’m sure you had a wonderful day and wish you every happiness for your future together. Best wishes Marion. Property Owner

    Location is brilliant, close proximity to the town whilst still feeling quiet and private, and Skirrid walkable from the door. Marion was a fantastic host, she made our stay very comfortable.

    Thanks Amy and Charlie. You walked more this week than I do in a few months and the rain certainly didn’t put you off. I went to The Crown pub, as its so close to the Barn and haven’t been for ages and I know you made a visit. I have to say, it was a fantastic meal, so highly recommend for all guests. Keep well and good luck. Marion Property Owner

    Marion was a great host and left us some welcome treats which was a really lovely gesture. Marion was available on our arrival for a quick introduction which was great and provided us with some very helpful information about the barn and local amenities. The location of the barn was ideal for getting out each day to explore the local areas. We would 100% stay again!

    Dear Lucy and Shawn Thank you for your comments. You were such a lovely couple and so glad you had quite a few days when the rain stopped and the afternoons were so sunny and warm. Next time you visit, make more noise, as I could only tell if you were in residence if your car was there. Thank you for.leaving the property extremely tidy. It,s always a great help when I do the change overs. Many thanks for that. Keep well. Marion. Property Owner

    We loved it so much that we have recently returned from our second visit, this time for two weeks. The Barn is very homely with every creature comfort, spotlessly clean and just gorgeous. It is surrounded by views that will take your breath away. The property is located in an ideal spot for visiting local areas including Raglan Castle, the Brecon Beacons and the Forest of Dean. Abergavenny is a short drive away full of lovely shops, cafes and restaurants. Marion, our host, was delightful and so thoughtful, she takes care of everything, and we were treated to fresh eggs from the chickens that roam free, a bottle of bubbly and cake. Thank you Marion, you are the best, we loved our chats and walks in the fields, playing ball with 'the four legged boys'. Special memories of an idyllic place, highly recommend a stay here, you won't regret it. Marion, we will be back to stay with you again, lots of love Lorna and David

  • "My sister and I have just had a magnificent week at Pentre Barn, for girly time."

    It is a lovely, very comfortable property - regardless of weather. We were there at Storm Agnes time and really appreciated the warmth with the log burner keeping us cosy. The situation is perfect, walking from the door or car trips to Abergavenny, Crickhowell and many more areas of the Brecon Beacons. It is a beautiful part of the country and one to be visited whenever a ‘quiet time’ is required - very restorative, especially as everyone we encountered during the week chatted like a good friend! Our host, Marion, was wonderful. Helpful if anything was needed and good fun. Her two Springer Spaniels of course are also great (as others have commented) really easy dogs to fall in love with! For a quiet and very restful holiday this can’t be beaten. Open space and the ability to listen to owls at night when in bed, but before dropping off to sleep is fantastically therapeutic. No more needs to be said.

    It was a pleasure to have you both stay at the barn. You made the most of your stay and visited many of the attractions in the area. The rural setting suited you both and the dogs couldn’t wait to see you every day for play time. Thank you for your comments and I look forward to seeing you again soon. Keep well. Marion.

  • "Marian was a wonderful host."

    She warned us building noise but we heard little. We were welcomed with a much appreciated bottle of fizz, delicious cake and eggs from the chickens that are free range and lots of delicious herbal teas as well as fresh ground coffee and tea. Some milk would have been nice to make some tea after the journey but nitpicking really. We had a couple of gas BBQs that were fantastic too. The chickens roam free and are a delight to watch. The property dogs are brilliant, they know they are not allowed in your property and so they throw toys or a ball into your front door for you to play with them. Brilliant. If you ignore them they go away. But they were good fun. The accomodation was enjoyable and a great place for walking and visiting local places. We enjoyed Raglan Castle and lovely lunch at Beaufort hotel (think it's called that?) The views from front and back of the property are wonderful and encourage you to walk to the we did and you should too. Abergavenny was the nearest town. Good selection of supermarkets and local stores. Lovely bakery in town for sour dough as well as cakes. There is brilliant cheese shop, have lunch and share a platter. It's just a delight. As you can tell 5 stars. That reminds me, the stars at night from the main bedroom balcony are simply amazing. Promise you will never have seen so many. Absolutely stunning.

    Thank you so much for your feedback Margaret. Your family were a delight and hope you enjoyed a fabulous anniversary with your family. I know it meant a lot to be together. We would be delighted to have you stay again. Hope you had a wonderful rest xxxx Kind regards Marion W Property Owner

    It is a very spacious and well appointed barn conversion with parking right outside the door, and unlike many conversions was cozy even in sub zero temperatures. The location is rural with lovely views in all directions and has easy access to the main road. The location is good as well, with easy access to the surrounding areas. The owners of this property are very nice people and nothing seems too much trouble for them. The only potential downside to this place is that the soild oak staircase would be problematic for people with severely limited mobility.

  • "This property was amazing."

    Fantastic views and lovely inside with everything you need. Kitchen well equipped. Lovely hosts, so helpful. Just be aware the heating is controlled by owners attached to you. Only came on around 4 in day, not in morning.It did have some underfloor heating in bathroom, but in -3 degrees and snow when we stayed in December, it was quite cold for us coming downstairs and in bedrooms.The owner said to light the woodburner as wood free but we wanted to come down to an already warm area to have breakfast before having to ligh a fire. The owner did eventually change the heating timings to include a few hours in the mornings.The owners are also attached through a sort of wall screen. It was soundproof but we could see the shadows and tv lighting. It was perfectly private and you could not see right through but just something that should be mentioned in description. We had an amazing week.

    Thank you for your constructive feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. I’m puzzled about the heating feedback though. Yes the heating is controlled from the main part of the house. It’s always been this way, but it comes on and off morning and evening much the same as anybody else’s home. It is sometimes difficult to cater for everybody’s individual preferences. For example we find that some guests open windows at night, they’re too hot. Hence the option of the wood burner. We are of course always happy to cater for individual needs but an option for ad lib heating simply isn’t viable I’m afraid. We’re glad you enjoyed your stay overall though Property Owner

    The living room was spacious but cosy. The kitchen was modern and well-equipped with a beautiful table ideal for family gatherings. The bedrooms were comfortable and tasteful. The barn in the Brecon Beacon National Park was surrounded on all sides by mountains and green fields and the views were stunning.The cottage seemed to throw its arms around us and was the perfect antidote to the effects and confines of the pandemic. Can't wait to share it with other family members when we are allowed to meet up. Many thanks to Marion and Ian who went out of their way to ensure our every comfort.

  • "We had a great stay at Pentre Barn, the location is superb surrounded by wonderful views and hills, it's very peaceful, yet also just a couple of miles from Abergavenny so the best of both worlds."

    The house is very comfortable and homely - all the little attention to details make it feel like a home from home. Marion and Ian are great hosts, and were really keen to ensure we had everything we needed, including for our 1 year old daughter. The eggs from the chickens and the homemade bread and chutney were also delicious! Abergavenny is a lovely town, we really enjoyed the great local walks followed by coming back and relaxing by the fire. We would highly recommend a stay at Pentre Barn.

  • "We had an absolutely fabulous week and a half at Pentre Barn and have certainly never stayed in a holiday cottage so well prepared and appointed."

    It certainly exceeded our expectations. Everything was immaculately clean, considered, and the attention to detail both inside and out was impressive (the lawns are immaculate!!). The views were stunning and the Barn is extremely peaceful though in easy reach of both Abergavenny and other roads which makes it a perfect base to explore the Beacons and surrounding area. The owner, Marion, and her partner Ian, live next to the Barn, were both brilliant hosts and great company. They could not have been more welcoming and helpful. We were so lucky with the hot weather and spent several evenings chatting and sharing a bottle or two of Rosé – and we were even invited to taste the delights of Ian’s BBQ. I could not recommend the property more highly. Truly exceptional.

Each room on the first floor retains wooden beams, sloping ceilings and fantastic skylights which let in an abundance of natural light, creating the perfect setting to unwind each evening.

Spend your mornings out in the enclosed rear garden where you can also find a barbecue for those alfresco evenings, while the lawned garden to the side makes a lovely spot to play a game of badminton with your loved ones.

The front patio area is shared by the owner and can be used in moderation, making a lovely spot to sit before venturing across the public footpath resting in the owner's field, to discover the beauty of the surrounding area.
