A mixed group of three families, there was loads of space for us to spread about. Bed rooms all enormous with super comfy beds, pillows and luxury bedding. The kitchen was incredibly well equipped with the necessaries. The decor was lovely. The only very minor quibble was the intermittent wi-fi signal, all a bit hit and miss (to be honest more of a problem with the "young adults" in our party!) and the lack of a sports TV cable package ( a problem for the male "young and old " adults!)
The grounds were lovely, with walks a plenty. A nice local pub - 20 mins walk along the road (no path), and a great farm shop (oakchurch) which stocked a brilliant selection of bits and bobs.
We had a great time.
Excellent house for our 60th birthday celebrations. Very well decorated and converted. Linen and towels top quality. Plenty of logs provided for the 3 woodburners. Lovely touches - flowers and chocolates in the house - welcome pack of bread, milk, butter, eggs, cake and biscuits. The outside area has enough seating for all and facilities for badminton and football. Maps and walk suggestions are provided.
We had a fantastic stay at Monnington House! Anna was great to deal with and gave us lots of helpful tips and advice - from where to go for local walks through to day trips for the children. We had several children in the party - all under 10 years and they were easily occupied with football, the games room and hide and seek!
We would absolutely recommend a stay in this beautiful area and are hopeful we'll organise a return trip!
We loved our stay at Monnington House! It's a gorgeous house in lovely surroundings, beautifully furnished and very comfortable. We stayed in the middle of a cold snap and it was very warm! There are three wood stoves, and lots of room for lounging and chilling out, with plenty of space for people to get away from each other, but also a big enough sitting room for everyone to be together. The kitchen is great, very big and well-equipped and lots of room for everyone to sit down together. And all the bedrooms are lovely, most of them en suite, so nobody misses out. It's also really nice as there are lots of books and ornaments around, and you have everything you need plus a lovely welcome, so you feel very much at home.
The area is beautiful too - it's only a quick drive from Hay on Wye, which is lovely, and there are fabulous walks nearby plus the Wye on the doorstep. We didn't use the garden as it was January, but it looks lovely. We really enjoyed our weekend and are going back next year.
Quite remote and so very quiet. Great local pub and farm shop up the road. Accommodation was very comfortable, all the bedrooms were ensuite and the sitting rooms were very cosy. The kitchen was a popular spot and very well equipped! We loved it and will return
