  • "A cosy, historic cottage in a great location for walking and viewing the many Castles & attractions in the Wye Valley & beyond to the Forest of Dean."

    A very comfortable bed and had the benefit of two bathrooms. Superb food at friendly pub in the village. Could be a bit noisy at times with joy riding bikers speeding past but didn't bother us. Jean was a very obliging host and we hope to return to the area in the future

    The cottage has everything you can think of to make it feel like home. It is beautiful internally and externally and the garden is gorgeous. The hosts are very welcoming and helpful. Would definitely recommend this property. I could have happily stayed for longer!

    .all it needed was a good clean round with a hoover with a nozzle and a good wipe round the tiles in the kitchen, the surround in the shower needs re tiling and the drain outlet in the shower needs replacing or cleaning.

    Jean the owner was very friendly and helpful and the Welsh cakes, eggs and cold beer in the fridge were very welcome. The Lion Inn is about 200 yards away and we had several excellent meals there chatting with the locals. The road noise could be a problem for some, but didn't bother us.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at this cottage the description is accurate, the traffic noise wasn't too bad as it's not a major road."

    We just found the lack of outdoor space restricting especially with the dog Jean did say we could use her garden but we didn't like to. The spiders and cobwebs were everywhere which I suppose you can expect with an old property but maybe providing a hoover might be a better option than just a brush especially when you have dogs staying.

    Please note that the outside space referred to in this feedback is as described by Sykes, comprising an outdoor seating area with table, as can be seen in the photos. I always welcome dog owners to walk their dogs on leads in my garden which is adjacent, if they would like and there is plenty of scope locally for woodland and forest walks. Spiders can move into the property during the week of a stay and I am on hand to put them outside if required! Property Owner

  • "Lovely Cottage, comfortable, stylish and very well equipped."

    Trelleck is a nice village and the Lion is a fantastic pub. The adjacent B road can be noisy very early in the morning (tractors etc), and busy with commuters morning and evening, but the rest of the time is not intrusive. Do not plan any walks that require you to walk along the B road as some people drive too fast and it is not safe. The Beacon Hill and Ninewells areas to the east have great walking, and can be reached either by walking along the quiet roads to the east of Trelleck or from the carparks that are just over 1km away.

    The cottage was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We had no mobile signal in the village, which we liked, but the cottage has fantastic WiFi which allowed us to book our activities. There is lots to do in the local area with some great walks nearby. The local pub, The Lion, was lovely. We had a lovely meal there one evening which was very reasonably priced and we regularly called in for a drink in the evening. The staff and locals were very welcoming to both ourselves and our 5 year old son. We would definitely stay at The Pound again if we decide to holiday in that area in the future.

  • "Lovely cosy cottage, made to feel very welcome by Jean & Fifi (Owner & cat), and the little extras left were much appreciated."

    My friend and I both brought our cats, they enjoyed as well. :) The roads around the cottage are very noisy, even though you would think they would be quiet as they are just through the village, but people tend to go very fast along them. Not a problem for me as I always take earplugs, but would be an issue for someone wanting total peace and quiet, and no road noise. Also not the cottage to pick if you have arachnophobia, lots of spiders and cobwebs - kept my friends' cat quiet anyway as he likes to catch spiders. :) The single room is probably best suited to a pre-teen as it is very small, having said that the bed was very comfortable and the Velux window is great for blocking out light when you are trying to sleep, and I am quite short so lack of head height was not an issue. This cottage is in a great location for accessing different places of interest. The local (The Lion) do a fabulous Sunday lunch, and the rest of the menu is probably just as delicious.

    Her advice and recommendations about the local area were invaluable. The cottage was immaculately clean and equipped well beyond our needs, we prepared all but one of our meals there. The downstairs layout worked well and the lounge is more spacious than it appears in the photos. Upstairs there was a beautifully spacious main bedroom and bathroom. The second bedroom was as expected and is comfortable but quite tiny. Wonderful mattresses and pillows. The stairs, usefully for us, had bannisters on both sides. I struggled with the internet connection, but our host came over and helped us out. We will definitely be recommending The Pound to friends.

The cottage location is perfect for exploring with walks from the front door and easy access to Tintern with its Abby and surrounding walks, Monmouth is with its shops and history is another must-do.

About the location


Monmouth 6 miles; Chepstow 10.6 miles; Ross-on-Wye 16 miles.

The beautiful village of Trellech is located in the picturesque Wye Valley, close to Ross-on-Wye, Monmouth, Llandogo and Tintern with its famous Abbey ruins. The village derives its name from the three standing stones, known as 'Harold's Stones', and was once one of the largest towns in Wales, hence its wonderful church. The history of the village draws many to visit the three stones as well as the Virtuous Well and the Tump Turret, a 40 foot mound which dates back to Norman times and is known to be the remains of a motte and bailey castle. Outstanding walks are enjoyed by all, whether to explore the history of the area or just take in the magnificent countryside. Pop into the village pub or enjoy a picnic along the way. The surrounding area gives you the option to explore more history at Tintern Abbey and Raglan Castle, visit beautiful Ross-on-Wye or enjoy cycle rides in this most scenic part of Wales. The South Wales coast is only 50 minutes’ away and there are easy road links to Bristol and Cardiff and all of their attractions. A perfectly peaceful location for wonderful holidays.
