  • "The Comfy Cow has spectacular views and a very comfortable bed."

    It is in a rural setting, which suited us. A welcome pack was provided. However, the property was cold on our arrival (14 degrees) and remained cold during our stay as the central heating did not remain on in spite of it being set to constant. This issue was raised with the owner and with Sykes numerous times during our stay, but the owner never came to the property while we were there to assist us with this problem. The heating issue completely spoilt our enjoyment of a much-anticipated holiday.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay !"

    Very peaceful and relaxing! The only thing we would change is the sofa it’s not very comfortable to lounge on so we spent most of the time on the bed. The views are great. We would love to stay again on day. Thank you

    We only missed a good coffee machine and an extra lazy chair in the livingroom.

    Bigger than expected from the photos, had everything you need for 2 people. So many walks and cycle rides in the surrounding area. Unbelievably quiet area

  • "Great place for a peaceful get-away in stunning scenery."

    Very comfortable with access to countryside walks and local towns. We’d suggest a few more ‘Comfy Cow’ signs, particularly from the B4293 as the property is down narrow country roads

    We had such a relaxing time. We didn't feel overlooked or watched and came and went as we wanted. All that we needed for our short break was available to us. We will be back, we've re-booked for a week at the end of October this morning...that's how much we enjoyed the accommodation.

    It may have been a good idea to have a small sign on the road, so that it would have been easier to fond the actual small lane

    For a relaxing holiday in a stunning location, this is just perfect for us, and on the final evening the icing on the cake - a clear sky to sit outside under the stars.

  • "We absolutely loved this place."

    The views are amazing and we sat and watched the sunset everynight. The road was very steep and bendy which made it difficult to access on our motorbikes. We contacted the owner and she kindly arranged for us to store them in barns at the bottom. This place has been very cleaverly designed and the only thing that was missing was a shower mat. We will hopefully return but will come by car next time. I have already recommended this place to friends.

  • "We have stayed in a number of holiday cottages over the years and I have to say, I think this is the nicest we have ever stayed in!"

    The view alone makes your jaw drop as you pull into the drive, but the actual cottage is beautifully finished, with lots of nice touches (all cow-themed!). I actually spent a large part of my childhood in Llanfihangel Tor-y-Mynydd and it's wonderful to have such a lovely place to accommodate us when we return to the area. We will be back again for sure!

    Lovely little place, lovely big bed and luxurious bathroom with a comfortable functioning kitchen and living area, just about all you need for two people. We were very lucky in that he weather was dry, not to mention very hot, so a lot of our time at the Comfy Cow was spent outside . WHAT A VIEW! Our trip was fabulous :)

The view...leaves you speechless. Stunning. One reviewer said it is like 'living in a painting' and I cannot come up with anything better. It is in the perfect spot, and to watch the sun set over the valleys and hills is breathtaking. The welcome pack was just the cherry on top. Thankyou so much. We'll definitely be back.

  • "We eventually found it by sheer luck as the Sat Nav didn’t recognise the name or postcode."

    A sign on the Old Chepstow Road would certainly have helped. Disappointed that there were no “passing places” on the lane leading from the Old Chepstow Road as reversing in either direction was quite taxing (as we found out). The Comfy Cow with its unique breathtaking views was however well worth the visit and we thoroughly enjoyed our week there. We certainly appreciated the comfortable bed . Thank you.

    Anything and everything we needed was available and we were beyond impressed with the standard, the comfort and the added touches.

A perfect escape to the countryside for a quiet break full of walking, animal spotting, drinking and eating. (Felt especially safe in regards to Covid as we were very secluded and didn’t even see the owners!) Loved the running cow theme and the story behind the property - diolch yn fawr Comfy Cow for providing just what we needed post lockdown!

  • "My husband and I loved our stay at the comfy cow."

    My only criticism would be that it is not very well sign posted. Our sat nav sent us a few miles in the wrong direction, however we phoned the contact number and the owners were friendly and happy to give us directions. We booked this to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed. Everything about this property was impressive down to the quality of the crockery. No expense has been spared throughout the property and really gave the luxurious feel that we were looking for. The lock down occurred during our stay here but as we were secluded and self sufficient we were not affected, and we were able to see out of break in comfort and peace. Waking up in the morning to the amazing views of the Beacons was a delight and to actually be able to get away and feel like a proper break away from home, was so refreshing and well needed for our sanity lol. I would highly recommend this property to anybody who asked, there was nothing negative about this property and worth every penny. The owners have done a fantastic job with the Comfy Cow and it is the perfect place to get away.

    We spent a few days 'working from home' (the wifi was better than our own!) for a change of scenery but it was hard not to get distracted by the stunning views of the black mountains and beyond. We enjoyed beautiful walks close by and the highlight was hearing a tawny and a barn owl on a couple of occasions. We'd love to come again.

We were very lucky with the weather so got to sunbathe and sit outside but when the weather broke it was also amazing to sit and watch the lightning given the sheer expanse of sky. Kathy was super helpful when we couldn't get the dishwasher working and there were a few lovely treats to greet us when we arrived, which was a lovely touch. Very glad we found this place given we booked only a week before going; absolutely stunning and the cattle grazing out front were a pleasure! Would love to go to again in future and would definitely recommend it as a cosy home away from home.

The property

Raglan 5.8 miles.

A fabulous converted bull pen, The Comfy Cow commands outstanding views over the Black Mountains and the Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons), sitting in a quiet and serene location in Llansoy near Raglan in Monmouthshire.

A romantic retreat for two awaits with an unspoilt landscape to provide the background to your couples adventure.

Completed to a high quality specification and decorated with quirky cow-themed touches throughout, The Comfy Cow is a joy to stay in.

Glass doors open out from the open-plan living space where you can prepare a meal for two in the sleek kitchen, dine at the country style breakfast table or relax on the sofa to watch the wall-mounted Smart TV.

Step out onto the patio in the morning with a cup of coffee and wake up with the world.

The patio is complete with outdoor furniture and a charcoal barbecue/fire pit to keep you warm in the evening.

The bedroom which holds a king-size bed has a rustic exposed beam and exposed brick walls, original features of this farm building, paired perfectly with the vibrant interior furnishings.

Adjoined to the bedroom is the spacious bathroom, complete with a separate bath and walk-in shower, basin, WC and a heated rail to keep your towel toasty, before you slip into the luxury dressing gowns provided by the owner.

There are many fantastic walks and cycle routes straight from the door, with bikes able to be stored in the shed provided for guests.

Five castles are situated within the surrounding area; Chepstow has the oldest stone built castle in the land, and Tintern is home to its majestic Tintern Abbey with its stunning setting on the banks of the River Wye.

The river offers a perfect way to explore by walking or cycling alongside it, meeting the River Severn down at Chepstow.

Monmouthshire is the food capital of Wales and as such you are never far from a wealth of good eateries and farm shops; head to the market towns of Monmouth and Abergavenny to sample some of the local produce or enjoy a drink.

For an idyllic spot for two, The Comfy Cow is the perfect pick for a break in South Wales.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.
