  • "Very nice private location beside small-ish sheep farm in the valley."

    Mr & Mrs Jones very helpful. Piano & games room a great plus. Abergavenny close (~3 miles) and pleasant walks on the hills.

  • "A wonderful place to stay with everything we needed."

    Visited with four children aged 16,14,10 and 1 who were very happy with the games room and the space they had to play in.. A cosy refuge when we were housebound during storm Eunice. We would love to visit again during warmer weather.

  • "We really loved the barn!"

    Plenty of space, well-equipped kitchen and lovely view. We met the owner, Mrs Jones, who was very pleasant and accommodating.There were just a couple of things that could be improved: We were cold! It semed the underfloor heating for the lounge was not working, and even though we tried the suggestion to "boost" the heating, the lounge would not warm up - typically it stayed around 18 degrees. We got round it by turning on the electric heater provided. Wifi was very poor. Speedtest showed it downloading at between 1 & 3 Mb/sec, with a maximum of 5 on a good day! And for that you had to be next to the router. We tried to watch Netflix but gave up. Being used to an average of 40Mb/sec at home, it was disappointing. On closer look it appeared that the barn does not have its own cable input, but has a wifi repeater, presumably from the farmhouse. This part of Wales, near the Brecon Beacons, is beautiful! We enjoyed some lovely walks on our days out. However, there is not much scope to walk near the barn - had to be a drive out. You need to be a decent driver! Access to the barn is down a couple of miles of single-track road. Overall, our stay was a very pleasant experience - we would recommend Millbrook Barn.

  • "Internet/Wifi is very poor."

    Many attractions e.g. Brecon mountain railway will only accept online bookings which we could not complete most of the time.

    Full instructions for operation equipment were provided, something not always done. It was perfect for our group of 6 (2 couples, 2 singles). The owners lived next door and were always helpful and friendly.

  • "Millbrook Barn is a fantastic property."

    It's very comfortable and the kitchen is well - equipped. It's in a very quiet and picturesque location, while being within easy reach of plenty of local attractions and amazing scenery. The owners are close by if you need them but were not at all intrusive. Would thoroughly recommend a stay here.

  • "Millbrook Barn is a fabulous property."

    There was plenty of space, both indoors and in the garden, and the facilities were exceptional - we couldn't have asked for more. Beautifully remote, which is what we were wanting, and yet a great base to easily explore the area.

  • "Millbrook Barn is a well equipped property and we enjoyed our stay."

    The kitchen is very well equipped for a large group which we appreciated. The facilities would be improved by including local maps for walks from the property, also the beds were uncomfortable and the heating way too hot when we arrived. Despite these comments it’s a lovely spot and we enjoyed the peace and quiet. Many thanks.

    We loved the space and the comfort. The location is beautiful and very rural, yet just a few miles from Abergavenny, which is a lovely town. Overall another great holiday. Also Sykes are very easy to deal with with a very straightforward booking system. We have had to call the office a couple of times over the years and the staff are always very friendly and professional to deal with.

    The rooms are all very comfortable and well equipped. The games room is full of games, books, puzzles and wii games, invaluable for entertaining Kids on a wet day. There is even a piano and billiard table. Next time I will take my grandchildren! The location is a little off the beaten track but very well placed for visiting Abergavenny, the Brecon Beacons, the Black Mountains and so much more. The bird life around the barn is a delight, as are the sheep!

Cottage is clean and cosy, the kitchen is well supplied. We hope to come back.

    The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen is fully equipped. Plenty to do in the area and surrounding areas, we found it very useful that a full range of pamphlets had been left for just this purpose. The farmer and his wife are close but not too close by, they are there if you need them but leave you to the peace and quiet of their farm. There is a Waitrose 15 minutes away which we made full use of. We would and plan to book this property again.
