“Our second year at the cottage confirms our belief in the quality of accommodation and the superb location.”
Currently scoping dates for a third return visit next year.
“Seamless booking experience and very high standard cottage.”
“The cottage was very cosy and well equipped.”
One of the best cottages we have stayed in. Lots to see and do in the area without having to travel far. Good walks from the cottage with stunning views. Would definitely recommend it.
We had high hopes for our stay based on numerous great reviews. Even so, the cottage still exceeded our expectations. It is gorgeous with everything you could want (great views, tranquility and a really comfy bed) without losing any of its character and charm. There's no wi-fi currently but given some 'homework' in advance and all the leaflets and guidance indoors, this was little hardship. Mark and Catherine are very friendly and helpful but never intrusive - there if you need them but let you be if you're self sufficient. We recommend Clearwell Caves, Symonds Yat, Chepstow Races, Puzzlewood and the local pubs (Inn at Penallt, Boat Inn, Saracens Head to name but three) to quench ones thirst whilst walking and taking in the amazing scenery. Lovely people, lovely cottage, lovely holiday!
Great scenery and fantastic owners. We loved the homely feel of the cottage, the large kitchen to cook meals for a cosy night in.
“Lovely, cosy cottage with beatiful views”
“Lovely location and cottage.”
Mark and Katherine very helpful and welcoming. Would definitely recommend the cottage for rambling and fishing. Excellent overall.
“The cottage is itself in a fantastic location.”
Lots of walking distances from your doorstep. Peaceful tranquillity. Lots of wildlife and bats at night can be watched from the skylight. Very relaxing and the cottage is absolutely spot on!!!
“The cottage is sublime, in a beautiful setting and is without doubt the best we have stayed in.”
We will definitely be going back
“This is one of the best if not the best cottages we have ever rented!”
! It has everything you could possibly need.(except Wi-Fi)
“Anne's Cottage was just perfect, location was beautiful and we look forward to returning in the near future.”
“It was the perfect accommodation.”
I could not have wished for more.
“A lovely cosy stay”
We stayed at Anne's Cotrage for 3 nights and wish we could have stayed for longer. The location is peaceful and far enough away from the busy towns to feel like a lovely retreat! We loved the log burner and cosy lounge area. The cottage is so well equpped, especially the kitchen, with just about everything you'd need and a few things you think you didn't. Be sure to have a nose into the many drawers in the kitchen and lounge where you'll find DVDs, maps, even stationary and an adult colouring book! We took advantage of the good location to explore by car and on foot. We visited Monmouth, Ross on Wye, Hereford, Abergavenny, Hay on Wye and Tintern. We recommend the 4 mile hike around Penallt looking out for millstones. We'd love to return.
“Beautiful cottage in fabulous surroundings”
We stayed at Anne's Cottage in at the end of March 2016 and it was the first time we had rented a cottage. I we will be doing it again. However, any other cottage is going to have a lot to live up to. The way Anne's Cottage has been decorated and furnished is so lovely. The well equipped kitchen is great. We have all thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in the cottage, reading and taking in the fabulous views. The bed in the bedroom was very comfortable and our teenage daughter said that the sofa bed in the lounge was comfortable too. The log burner is perfect for those colder nights and really warms up the place. This is a great place to use to visit the area. We've wandered through Monmouth, had a trip to Cardiff, visited Abergavenny and Caerphilly, as well as done some walks from the cottage. The cottage has a number of books/leaflets which shown different walking routes as well as other local places to visit. We had a meal at the Inn at Penault which was very nice. One thing to note is that phone signal is poor. This wasn't a problem for us as it was nice to not be on the phones constantly, although if affected our teenage daughter. We have already recommended this cottage to family and friends and wouldn't hesitate in coming back if we were to visit this area again.
What a little gem/find. Lovely well equipped cottage. Magnificent views and surroundings so peaceful. Amazing shower and truly comfortable bed. If you want a quiet break away from it all then this is a cottage to go to.
“Practically perfect in every way.”
Beautiful well-equipped cottage, decorated to an exceptionally high standard. Very peaceful area with stunning views. No 'phone signal but that isn't always a bad thing! Lots of walking opportunities if you're ok with steep climbs. Monmouth is a pleasant nearby town with plenty of smaller shops. All in all a very relaxing stay in a lovely clean cottage with beautiful views.
“The most beautiful cottage we've ever stayed in!”
Excellent cottage: super bed, luxurious 'rain shower' woodburner with wood to burn, views on the Wye Valley all around , perfect kitchen with everything one might possibly need... The pub in the village offers Michelin star quality food Friendly owners We Will certainly come back as there are still more walks to be made in this beautiful part of Wales.
