  • "We have thoroughly enjoyed our week at Penrose Cottage."

    It’s was comfortable , cosy, clean, warm & the bathrooms were sparkling. The location was perfect for us visiting family & friends locally. The views & garden are breathtaking, and the sound of silence apart from the birds is very therapeutic. I can’t think of a negative word to say about it! We have already booked to return next August , and plan for another winter visit next year. Thank to you Keith, a wonderful host.

  • "The location was perfect, it is ideally placed for many places to visit."

    Found Abergavenny a really good place to visit with its excellent shopping and market. The cottage was clean and well furnished with excellent views over surrounding countryside. The host was very warm and welcoming. It was quiet beyond my wildest dreams, with the birdsong in the evening a most welcome change from traffic where I live. would highly reccomend this cottage to any one who enjoys a walking or cycling break also

  • "Whilst the holiday cottage and the owner were absolutely delightful, and the cottage an excellent example of a truly accessible cottage for a wheelchair, the response from Sykes was disappointing."

    I would LOVE to book this cottage again, but will not book with Sykes.

  • "We arrived to a very warm welcome from Keith the owner."

    He was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. He lives close by and said if we had any issues or something wasn’t right to let him know. The cottage was lovely, with a big garden and fabulous views, well equipped with plenty of hot water and equipment. The downstairs bedroom was fab as I am in a wheelchair and the wider doors made all the difference as did the shower. It’s a great base, 3 miles from Abergavenny and so close to many popular landmarks. My daughter and partner enjoyed some really good walks, finishing with Sugar Loaf. There are several parks to visit, great if you have children. We will definitely book again. Thank you Keith for you care and kindness.

    Great cycle/walking paths on the canal and old railway track a few mins away, safe for children. Lots of walks right on the door step, Blorenge, Skirrid and the must do Sugar Loaf. Pub and shop in village, Abergavenny has supermarkets and more. Fantastic holiday and hosts.

  • "The house is in a wonderful location and the owner was very friendly and couldn't fault him, however, the photos are not updated and it is actually modernised quite a lot."

    Even has Netflix on the TV. We did book last minute so may be the reason it wasn't perfectly clean and no supply of soap in the bathrooms when we arrived. There was however a good supply of toilet paper and dishwasher tablets which is not always the case. The garden has a wonderful view and was great for our BBQ. One fault that we thought was quite bad is the stairs going to the bedrooms. The top 3 stairs are different heights and whilst holding my baby I slipped down one of them, thankfully I was holding on to the banister! Also all of us tripped up the last but one step a few times. On the whole though the property is very nice.

  • "Keith the owner of the cottage was very very welcoming and most helpful with anything we needed."

    The cottage was homely and well equipped and the bathrooms were very good. Water pressure was very good as was the wifi and mobile signal. We had a great break and would definitely like to return again The pictures and details on Sykes site are very out of date and the owners has been trying without success to get someone to update them. It's not fair on them as the cottage has been upgraded in a lot of ways, these are the things we would like to point out 1) there is a very nice conservatory off the living room that allows access to the garden and the amazing views ( not mentioned at all on the details) 2) The seating in the garden has a shelter around it allowing all weather viewing 3) The furniture is now a modern comfy corner sofa 4) the tv is a full size on in the living room 5) the beds now have duvets on them not bed spreads and the curtains have been renewed 6) the owners mobile number is an old one and has not been updated as requested by the owner COME ON SYKES DO THE BASICS RIGHT SO THE OWNER AND CUSTOMERS CAN GET A REAL FEEL FOR THIS LOVELY COTTAGE

    Cottage was lovely, in a great location and owner Kieth is very friendly and helpful. Great scenery to enjoy even without leaving the cottage. The working farm feature is something we’ve never experienced before and it was an amazing addition for us because we have school aged children. Would really like to return to Penrose cottage soon to re live the great experience.

    We were met with a warm and friendly welcome by the owners. The setting and cottage is idyllic. Great turning and parking for our very long people carrier. The views are absolutely spectacular. The cottage is very well equipped and everything is easy to use, the bedrooms are spacious, very comfortable and all en suite upstairs and having the downstairs bedroom and wet room made it work brilliantly for our daughter who has very complex needs. The owners were always on hand to offer any help and advise on places to visit and eating out. Nothing was too much trouble. The surrounding area has lots to offer to see and do. We had a fabulous week and intend to book again.

  • "This is a delightful, comfortable and homely cottage with amazing panoramic views of the Sugar Loaf and other Brecon Beacons."

    Well appointed for anyone in a wheelchair, along with others. There is a wonderful conservatory where you can sit and enjoy the views whatever the weather, also a lovely bench in a sort of shelter in the garden, and a picnic table too. The beds are very comfortable and the property is well-equipped. A few minor things - many of the drawer handles on bedside drawers seemed to have come off; the latch to the bedroom door could also do with repairing (or a door wedge / door stop be provided) because if you have the window open at night the door gusts open and shut despite the small piece of cord to hold it in place. But overall it is lovely, and owned and run by a delightful couple! Thank you...

    The all-round views from the large and pleasant garden are to die for. We were warmly welcomed on arrival and soon settled in. Breakfast in the new conservatory became an enjoyable routine and Keith was always ready to chat and relate stories of local history and recommend places to visit. We did not do much sightseeing because the peaceful garden was so tempting but we did enjoy a “last night” meal at The Lamb and Flag – again, recommended by Keith. Altogether a really good week. Thank you Keith and Diane.

    The property itself was fairly well equipped, bathrooms were to a high standard and the kitchen was nice and clean on arrival. The private garden was safe for children as it is guarded by shrubbery and fencing on all sides. Keith even took us to feed his horses and his sheep, dogs and ducks were extremely excited to see us! The views of sugar loaf mountain and other local mountains and the valley containing Abergavenny were fantastic and very serene watching the sun rise. The farm is located on a small narrow lane but this is just off an easy to reach dual carriageway with good access by car to local towns and shops, so although you get the peace and quiet, you are only 10-15mins away from everything you need (not in the middle of nowhere like some cottages). Will definitely book again one day! What would be a bonus: a working DVD player, TV in main lounge with more connections to add hard drive to watch movies etc, and possibly wifi but these are small gripes.
