A Jewel in the Countryside

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.

Family Weekend

  • Review Submitted: 30-May-2013
  • Date of Stay: May 2013
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
  • Review Submitted: 13-Apr-2013
  • Date of Stay: Apr 2013
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!

Family Gathering

We had a lovely week in this beautiful, well stocked cottage, with great views of the countryside.
The cottage was spotlessly clean with lovely comfy beds, fluffy towels a really nice welcome pack and lots of information.

We also enjoyed the log burner in the evening as the weather was really cold.
The grandchildren loved playing in the garden with the small tractor (and Tilly the dog from over the road.) We all enjoyed Butterfly Zoo, Puzzlewood, Chepstow Castle, Monmouth and the amazing scenery. We also walked along the river Monnow to the little church, a nice walk but a little muddy ( as our grandaughter found out when she fell over).

It was all over too soon and we hope to come back next year.
Owner's Response: We are so pleased that our guests had a lovely week at the barn, their comments are much appreciated. We put a great deal of thought and effort into making the barn and its environs as comfortable and relaxing as possible. We are glad to hear the tractor was a hit! These guests chose some ideal places to visit with their young children in mind. Monmouth and the Lower Wye Valley are only a few miles away and well worth visiting, as is the Forest of Dean with its many visitor attractions. We do hope these guests will return, they will be very welcome.

We had an amazing stay at the barn and it was perfect for the family birthday get together. We spent hours at the table as it was so social with the kitchen. People sneaked off into the cosy lounge and fire (big fire basket that eats logs if you have it going well, so remember to sort fuel in colder times) to have a little peace and quiet but we didn't let that sort of thing carry on too long!!
Walking around was fantastic and muddy at this time but no problems, recommend a walk past the church and on to the Bell PH for lunch or just a glass of wine in front of the fire.
All the facilities in the house were good and up to a high standard and Claire came and met us one day to introduce herself which was nice. Interesting to get background to the barn and farm and the other barn behind Old Orchard.
Would use it again for family get-togethers and recommend to others for standard of the barn and location.
Owner's Response: We are very pleased our guests had a lovely stay. The walk past the church, along the River Monnow is very popular with our visitors, as is The Bell at Skenfrith which serves excellent food. Our guests were obviously very interested in the history of the area. Some of the buildings date back to Norman times - the Manor House opposite being built on the site of a Norman Castle.

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
