“We loved it.”
Reviewed 17 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My wife wanted to move there and the grandchildren didn't want to leave. Everything needed was there, it is close to several attractions for kids - must mention Perrygrove model railway - and there's a Waitrose and a Wetherspoons in Monmouth. The new managers have a big job on to sort the farm out, but the property was perfect when we arrived. We guess some may not like it, there will always be picky tiny things, for us it was one of the two best places we've stayed. If you're tempted, Cardiff is a great day or two out, Perrygrove, Go Ape and the woods around, any biking trail....terrific.

We are so pleased you enjoyed staying with us, it was a pleasure to have you all on the farm. You left the house extremely tidy and clean so thank you. We hope that you come back one day and see all the changes we have made to the farm. Thanks for a fabulous review it is much appreciated, Wayne and Lisa

“English Country Farm accomodation”
Reviewed 23 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Great fun for kids. Chickens, goats and sheep. Real working English farm.
House had everything we needed. Hosts were lovely. Not a 5* hotel, but a great experience for people wanting to see the English Countryside and stay on a quaint little English farm.

“Magical farm experience”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Thank you for this memorable weekend at Crooked End with our two families with young children (0-6). It was great value and you were welcoming and really involved our kids in the whole farm experience, feeding the geese, stroking the chickens and collecting eggs in the morning. The house was perfectly clean and well equipped. We weren't expecting to use it in early September but the log fire was very cosy. We recommend Puzzlewood and Symonds Yat and it seemed like there were 100s more things to do so we hope to come back again.

“This cottage was a disaster”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

As we arrived we had to clean out all the cupboards in the kitchenand the refrigerator as well. The oven, I think was used and never been cleaned.
The shelf in the cupboard beneath the sink was totally rotten because of water leak from the sink. The bathroom : There was all dust and hair over the floor.
. In the storage room was a floorbrush all filled with animal hair. There was a leak in the roof of the kitchen and in the wall of one bedroom.
In two bedrooms were no wardrobes, .
Altough the owners were very helpfull and friendly. They took over the cottage in May and told us they were busy of cleaning it firmly and repairing things.
As we decided not to stay any longer after one night they refuneded us the total amount we paid.
Se we hope that things would change in the futur.

The property is a converted barn set in a rural setting – well-maintained, clean and tidy. We do appeal to dog walkers so there may be an occasional hair but you will need to get down on your hands and knees to find one, a steam-cleaner is used between visits.
It seemed this family wished to return to their previous accommodation which is what happened after a complementary night plus full refund, deeming this whole review completely unwarranted. There were some English language issues, which may have led to misrepresentation - the house is not dirty and the whole property had been cleaned prior to use. There was one tiny cobweb behind the upstairs toilet which I removed myself but the room itself was spotlessly clean. A broom was removed and replaced from the utility area which had some hairs on it. The family had moved furniture and found a small patch of what they believed to be damp. This has since been looked at professionally with no issues of concern although I will ensure in the winter months, annual maintenance and an even-deeper steam clean take place. We continue to be blessed with very positive feedback and I hope future guests are able to read between the lines to form their own opinions.
