  • "We had a fantastic stay at Pentre Barn."

    It’s a gorgeous rustic house with all the creature comforts of a 5 star hotel. Set in the beautiful Welsh mountains but also being close to Abergavenny made it the perfect location, I would definitely come back. Marion was also an excellent host.

  • "We had a brilliant holiday in Pentre Barn."

    It is in a wonderful location, with superb views all around. The cottage is really well equipped and furnished to a very high standard. The owners seem to have thought of everything needed to make this a truly memorable experience and the generous welcome goodies, which included fresh milk and eggs were very much appreciated. This holiday property is highly recommended and we will definitely be retuning.

  • "We had a fabulous week at Pentre Barn; a super, well appointed property in a beautiful & peaceful location with fantastic 360 views and yet only minutes from Abergavenny and all the shops/restaurants etc you could want."

    Marion was a lovely, friendly host and was always available if needed but otherwise left us to our own devices - the welcome goodies were very much appreciated too & included a delicious chocolate cake! Lots to do & see nearby and even the weather was pretty good most days :-)

  • "We had a fantastic three weeks at Pentre Barn."

    The cottage is extremely comfortable and has everything you need for a stay of any length. Marion and Ian went out of their way to make us feel welcome and by the end it truly felt like a home away from home. Only wish we could have stayed longer!

  • "We had a lovely time at Pentre Barn."

    Marion and Ian provided a very warm welcome - and were on hand when we needed them but otherwise left us to our own devices. Pentre Barn exceeded our expectations. It's a lovely place to stay - a barn coverted to a very high standard. Every room has its own charm, and we were very comfortable there. The setting is delightful, with lovely views of Skirrid and Sugar Loaf, walks on the doorstep, and only 5 minute drive to shops etc. The woodburner and cosy lounge were just want we needed during a winter break, and we definitely plan to visit again. We thoroughly recommend a visit!

  • "Marion and Ian clearly care about their home and their guests and this really shone through."

    We immediately felt welcomed and at home. The 360 degree views that surround the property are stunning. The beds were really comfortable and the kitchen diner area is a brilliant space for socialising and relaxing. The conversion of this barn has been done quite sympathetically and has a lot of character. It would be a cozy and comfortable place to stay at any time of the year.

  • "Pentre Barn and it’s hosts, Marion & Ian could not have been more perfect."

    The accommodation was absolutely stunning (the photos just don’t do it justice) and the owners had thought of everything. The welcome package and the welcome itself from Marion & Ian was so lovely and a real personal touch. The view from the accommodation and the surrounding area is beautiful and our hosts were keen to recommend local visits and places to eat. All in all we couldn’t have wished for better experience and we will certainly book here again when visiting the area in the future. Pentre Barn is the best accommodation we’ve stayed in so far and the hosts were the most welcoming we’ve experienced. This all made for a wonderful stay. Many thanks!

  • "Marion is the perfect hostess - thoughtful and generous."

    We loved how the whole barn inside and out were full of flowers. Fortunately for us we arrived just as she welcomes 2 puppies, which was a real bonus for our children. Do not let the fact the property adjoins her own put you off - Marion was discreet throughout and we didn't feel at all she impinged on our privacy. If anything we left feeling jealous that she gets to live in this beautiful part of Wales.

Marion and Ian are great hosts, and were really keen to ensure we had everything we needed, including for our 1 year old daughter.

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.

    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.
