“Weekend away - family and friends”
Reviewed 6 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We arrived on Friday afternoon, previously given full information on how to find the farm and enter the barn. All good. The setting for the barn is idyllic, very close to the main farmhouse and with beautiful trees and fields to the rear of the barn.
The barn itself is openplan, kitchen lounge and dining room all in one high vaulted room. I believe it was the dairy. Everything is furnished and accessorised to a high standard. There are 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and a small games room downstairs. Upstairs via quite a steep staircase is a huge room with twin beds. All very comfortable.
Simon, our host came to check we were all settled in, and then kindly found us a bigger pan from the house to cook our chilli for dinner. He also showed us a summer house by the patio with extra fridge and freezer space.
Gilwern is between Crick Howell and Abergavenny and we visited both towns during our stay. lovely independent shops.
These are NOT complaints but just points to note. One bedroon has only a stable door with a window. this has no curtain. Dawn was early in June and the light flooded the bedroom. I used an eyemask the second night - all good.
Sitting outside for most of our meals and chatting we got bitten by little flies. It happens, its the countryside! But have some repellent if it bothers you.
To make this place perfection, another toilet would have been useful and with 5 of us it needed planning to shower and get out in the morning. the barn has only 1 bathroom.
We are all thinking of returning to this lovely place.

“Fantastic weekend hideaway”
Reviewed 4 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We had a lovely weekend in the Welsh countryside! The lovely hosts left milk and flowers for our arrival which was a pleasant surprise! The open plan barn is a tardis with 2 double bedrooms a gorgeous twin loft space and a games room!
Totally secure, free parking and so quiet you could here a pin drop!
Will totally be visiting again! 5*

“Most horrible first trip with our 4 month old”
Reviewed 22 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

people found this review helpful

We have been told by the owners that they would be around to greet us and that the barn would be open, but when we arrived at the property in the dark and cold aroudn 5 pm no one was around, the doors were locked and no one could be reached on any of the phone numbers we had. We had repeadetly tried to access the property and tried to reach the owners and finally gave up and left at around 9 pm. I find it horrifiying that anyone would leave a young family in the cold and dark for so long. We finally received a text with the key location at 0.40 am. I have no idea what the owners have been thinking that we would still hang around this late.

For a first trip with our 4 month old, it could not have been a more horrible experience. Good that she won't be able to remember!

“Spectacular, much better than expected”
Reviewed 17 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This is a fantastic open-plan cottage that has lovely furnishings. The kitchen is very well equipped and the owner starts you off with a pint of milk, tea, coffee sugar and a cake. There are also fresh flowers in the room. The three bedrooms, 2 doubles and a twin room upstairs, offer very comfortable beds and the location is great for getting around to enjoy the sites in South Wales. A car is necessary but the parking is free and secure. Very quiet, beautifully furnished and excellent service from the owner, who is on hand if you need them but are also happy to leave you alone to enjoy your break. Would definitely recommend and will come back. The WiFi is also very good.
