  • "Top Lodge is on a private farm, lovely to see the horses and sheep."

    Lovely views to the bridge and the Estuary. Conveniently placed to get to Cardiff and the other attractions. Top Lodge was fairly clean but needs a little TLC. Bulb gone in main light in 2nd bedroom, was mentioned in previous reviews, no bedside lamp in main bedroom so had to be careful of sloped ceiling when on way back to bed. No Tea towels, was mentioned to hosts. Could do with bigger TV and toilet roll holders. Curtains to long especially over the kitchen sink.

  • "Really lovely property with the most amazing views."

    It's a rural setting but the animals and yard are kept immaculately clean so there are no farmyard smells. The outside area is secure for the dog, so she enjoyed her holiday too. Lots of places to visit in the area and as we stayed during the hottest week of the year we managed to find shaded wooded walks and walks by rivers so that the dog could cool down. Only useful additions to the barn would be a coffee table in the lounge and a bedside lamp in the first bedroom, but these were really minor issues.

  • "The most relaxing holiday experience."

    Top lodge is bright & airy with amazing views. We are animal people so having lambs, horses, pigs & hens surrounding us was perfect. We had our little chihuahua with us so the enclosed front patio is perfect. The owners are lovely & have 3 dogs & a cat. There was a welcome gift of Welsh cakes, shortbread, milk, tea, coffee, sugar bread & delicious eggs from their hens. There are no shops in walking distance but there is an Asda in Caldicot which is not too far, also a very good Chinese takeaway. We strolled down to the pub on our last night, it's approx 20 minute walk. Care must be taken as there is no path & no street lighting so the walk back in the dark was interesting. We used our phone torches. All in all a fantastic holiday and we would definitely recommend.
