A Jewel in the Countryside

  • 5 out of 5
What can I say??? This barn is beautiful ! It certainly has the WOW factor. Very modern inside and fitted out to a superb standard and is spotlessly clean. Everything you could possibly need is here, the owners have thought of everything. So many little touches that make you feel at home. My husband and I had a family long weekend with our 2 adult sons and their girlfriends and my Mum. Plenty of room for our party of 7. A car is definitely needed but if you have SAT NAV it is SO easy. Peaceful surroundings with views to die for ! Beaufort Hotel in Raglan is good for a meal especially Sunday Lunch. The New Inn at St Owens Cross although only small, has a lovely atmosphere with lovely food. Not your usual Pub Grub. We will most certainly return again. Thank you Claire and Richard for welcoming us so warmly ! Cheryl & Tom

Owner's Response: It is wonderful to have all our hard work appreciated in this way.

We are so pleased that our guests had a lovely reunion with their family. I gather the birds were singing.

The property was designed to be family friendly and furnished to provide a home from home atmosphere.

Fabulous family break

  • 5 out of 5
Our 3 night stay in this barn was all we hoped for & more! Great peaceful location with lovely, countryside views. An ideal base for exploring the local area. There was ample room for the 7 of us (all adults) to stay comfortably.
The barn is extremely well equipped, immaculate, & the master suite is particularly impressive. The welcome pack with local produce was a nice touch and delicious.
The owners were very helpful from booking through to arrival, when we received a warm welcome from Claire.
Our day canoeing 14 miles of the Wye was amazing and well organised by Monmouth Canoe Hire.
We enjoyed a lovely meal at 'The Stonemill' restaurant. We recommend booking, which we had done as it was busy.(Saturday evening)
The grass area in front of the barn is large enough for ball games etc. and is ideal for watching the sunset, while enjoying a BBQ and a glass of wine!
We would certainly like to book this lovely barn again, if returning to this area.

Owner's Response: We are very pleased that our guests had such an enjoyable time. Travelling by canoe is one of the great ways to explore the Wye Valley. We have some excellent pubs and restaurants within easy reach of the barn. We are always pleased to welcome returning guests.

Friends Gathering...

  • 5 out of 5
Thank you for having us all at the Old Orchard Barn, we all had a fabulous time and the accommodation was perfect. What a stunning barn conversion and beautiful location. There was plenty of room for us all, 8 adults and 2 babies. The garden was huge and the little ones could crawl around safely. Lovely welcome pack with lots of local information - we enjoyed the walk past the local church.
We would highly recommend this barn to groups of family / friends. We hope to make this an annual visit.
Thank you, Amber and friends.

Owner's Response: We are very pleased that our visitors had a fabulous time and would like to thank them for their comments. The walk along the River Monnow to the church is a lovely one and anyone with more energy could continue on to the village of Skenfrith with it's Castle and The Bell Inn. We would love to have these guests stay again at any time, they would be most welcome. The barn really is suitable for all ages.

Another brilliant bell ringers weekend

  • 5 out of 5
As last visit this Barn is excellent, facilities as described, the welcome pack and all the other extras such as towels, toilet rolls, etc were provided and it was spotlessly clean. It was good to meet Claire this time too. We all had a great time in this quiet location, lovely walks and the sun shone too. If you want a nice relaxing holiday with great scenery and within easy reach of attractions then Old Orchard Barn is the place to be
We had a relaxing time and apart from walking in the area we spent a lot of time chatting, eating and drinking in a relaxed atmosphere.
5 stars given for the barn, facilities, warm welcome from Claire and all the other little extras.
We'll be back again. Thanks Claire and Richard

Family Weekend

  • 5 out of 5
Just spent a wonderful family break at the barn. We can only agree with all the POSITIVE comments of previous reviewers. The barn is AMAZING - spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The kitchen is especially well-equipped.

We were lucky with the weather - the sun shone all weekend, enabling us to take advantage of the large garden one evening for a BBQ, whilst enjoying the wonderful views.

We have already booked again for next year and would certainly recommend this property. Alan & Judith Yates

Owner's Response: We would like to thank our guests for this lovely review. We are very pleased to hear that their stay was wonderful. We much appreciate being recommended and will be very pleased to welcome our guests again next year. The barn is idea for family get-togethers or reunions of old friends. There is much to see and do in the surrounding area of Herefordshire, Monmouthshire and Gloucestershire, for all ages.

Gorgeous Barn

  • 4 out of 5
We had a great week at the barn with our 4 children and 2 friends; plenty of space for 8 of us! The barn certainly has the wow factor and we did have problems deciding on who should have the master bedroom! The kitchen is well equipped and the welcome pack is brilliant as is the drinks basket - the kids loved the hot chocolate. We did find that the master bed mattress does have some 'roll together' and the lack of curtains or blinds at the top 3 windows does allow quite a bit of light in.

Apart from this though, the week was very enjoyable and the views from the barn are fantastic as well as the ever present birds in the garden - lots of bird seed needed! This was a daily job for our daughter.

The barn is ideally located for visiting all the local attractions - Puzzlewood, Amazing Hedges and Clearwell Caves. We spent many a day going in and out of Wales to Herefordshire and Gloucestershire! We visited Dewstow Hidden Gardens and Grottos on our last day on route back to Devon - definitely worth a visit, absolutely stunning. It was disappointing that the Dean Forest Railway wasn't running during our week and also the Perrygrove Railway was shut too as it wasn't half term locally.

Lots of great historic places to visit - Tintern Abbey, Hereford Cathedral, Raglan Castle and Abergavenny Museum and Castle.

The added bonus for us was the dry weather - drove back home to pouring rain!!

Thank you to Claire and Richard for a lovely welcome.

Owner's Response: We are very pleased our guests had a great week at the barn and much appreciate their comments. They certainly filled their week with many interesting activities and managed to visit quite a few of our famous local historical places. We thought the birds looked a bit plumper than usual! We always welcome constructive comments from our visitors and will check-out the mattress! Perhaps the next time these guests visit the Dean Forest Railway and Perrygrove Railway will be open!

This converted Grade II listed 18th Century stone threshing barn is situated 4 miles from the historic border town of Monmouth, in the picturesque Monnow Valley. Monmouth, the birthplace of Henry V, is in the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty known as the Wye Valley. Close by is the beautiful Royal Forest of Dean. The Cathedral City of Hereford, on the River Wye, is about 16 miles to the North and Ross-on-Wye, the birthplace of English Tourism, is some 10 miles distance. The Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons National Park are within easy reach for the enthusiastic walker, with Brecon and its Cathedral close by, less than an hours’ drive away. The Glamorgan Heritage Coast, Cardiff Bay, Swansea and the Gower Peninsular are also within easy reach for glorious days out. There is some beautiful local countryside surrounding this barn with lots of footpaths and many walks. En-route there are some lovely country pubs and fine restaurants, eg The Bell at Skenfrith (award winning).

Other Activities: canoeing and rock climbing
