  • "Hanover Mans is a lovely well appointed and well equipped cottage."

    We only had a short stay to visit family and made good use of the kitchen cooking a roast for 7. I found the stairs somewhat difficult due to arthritic knees and a downstairs toilet would have been perfect. Having said that I would recommend it as it was isolated enough to be a peaceful break in lovely surroundings and near enough to Newport and Abergavenny. All in all a comfortable stay in a lovely cottage

  • "Beautiful cottage ,but sadly we were very disappointed that when we arrived we were informed the electronic gates to the cottage are not working ,and had be broken for a while so we could not exercise our dog freely in the very large garden,which was a real shame as we had purposely booked this cottage for this reason ."

    There is a main road quite near to to cottage . Sadly the gates were not repaired while we were there , definitely not a dog friendly garden as advertised ,perhaps two normal swing gates would be more appropriate. Please update your Sykes website
