    I don't normally write reviews, but I felt I had to share my experience of this marvellous property. This is my second visit with a large group to Woodbank - we returned to the property for two key reasons: the fantastic amenities and the sheer beauty of the property and surrounding area. The amenities at Woodbank are second to no other place I have ever stayed at - including places I have stayed on business and for pleasure. The sheer number of rooms and bathrooms allowed us to comfortably accommodate around 20 people for our yearly off-site team building weekend. We had people arrive from Manchester, London, Birmingham and other locations around the UK, so the plentiful parking on the property was very helpful. We held our workshops in the traditional main dining room (which has a very large table) and we were pleasantly surprised by the reliability of the Wi-Fi and phone reception in the property - handy for those instagram posts too! The kitchen was big featuring multiple fridges, ovens and hobs, so cooking and prepping meals for such a big group was effortless - we also enjoyed using the BBQ on the patio on our last night. There is a audio system on the ground floor which fills the rooms with music - great for when we had finished workshops and started to unwind in the evening. There are plenty of lounging areas including the bottom floor snooker table room with large TV. The hosts were very accommodating, going above and beyond to cater for our needs and ensure our weekend was productive, comfortable and enjoyable. The design of the property was especially charming, the chic yet classic decor of the rooms made the property seem very grand and every room had character and was beautifully presented. The views from the rear patio of the property were especially breathtaking. Coming from London, it was a rare sight to be in such a spacious property, surrounded by rolling green hills and fresh air. It was so lovely to sit on the patio in the evening after our daytime activities to unwind. The local pub was only a mile away and the stroll on Sunday afternoon there was almost as pleasant as the friendly locals of Llanhennock (I still can't pronounce the name of the town though!) The gardens were very large and well maintained. Even though we didn't need to use the outdoor green space much, it was lovely to just to look at and admire from the house and patio - probably could have got a very large marquee in the gardens for bigger events. Truly a spacious yet cosy, clean and comfortable hidden gem in South Wales, I am so glad we have found this place - we will be back again next year!

The property

Llanhennock 2 miles.

A stunning, detached South Wales holiday cottage perfectly located in beautiful countryside overlooking the River Usk and Celtic Manor Resort (opposite the 2010 Ryder Cup course).

Woodbank is approached through a long sweeping private drive and set in 20 acres of its own grounds with accommodation of approximately 8000 square feet.

Luxuriously decorated and furnished, this cottage provides spacious, first class accommodation perfect for a family celebration or get together with friends in an area which can offer something for everyone in an unspoilt part of the country.

Set over three floors with far-reaching views, this cottage has eight charming bedrooms, many boasting en-suite facilities and a fabulous kitchen with an AGA, dining area and doors to the rear patio and garden.

A more formal dining room makes a great place for the whole group to sit together over a celebratory dinner and leisurely Sunday lunch, followed by relaxation time in the sumptuous sitting room, again with amazing views, or the cosy snug.

For the more energetic the lower ground floor area offers a full-size Riley snooker table, a very well-equipped gym with a treadmill, bike, free weights, a workstation with bar and a flat screen 50" TV and surround sound system.

Why not try a round of golf on one of the three championship courses or indulge in a luxury spa day at Celtic Manor Resort, just a 10 minute drive away?

Outside, this unique cottage, the large garden is a great place to spend a sunny afternoon relaxing with a good book, enjoying alfresco dining or enjoying garden games whilst taking in the stunning views.

Whilst staying at this superb holiday home you may wish to travel to Cardiff, which is within driving distance in order to visit its many attractions, or even watch a football or rugby match at the Millennium Stadium or Cardiff City Stadium.

A very special cottage for a memorable holiday at any time of year.
