3 Generations have had a lovely relaxing week with some beautiful weather. A lovely comfortable barn with beautiful views and walks from the door.
Thank you for your welcome - we have all had a lovely holiday and don't really want to leave!
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
The property is in a wonderful location, surrounded by beautiful countryside. Claire was at the barn to great us, along with a fantastic hamper of goodies! Claire was very helpful in advance and when we arrived. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay.
Out of this world! Truly wonderful in every way! Thank you
The attention to detail inside this beautifully converted barn is fabulous. The views are breath taking. The facilities are so good that it almost won't matter if you forget to bring something because unless you need a space suit everything is there. Really feels like the owners have thought about you and how to make your stay as good as it can be. Just brilliant! Thank you!
Our 4th stay at this lovely Barn. As usual Claire made sure that everything was in place. The lovely welcome pack was excellent and the provision of a basket containing various hot chocolate drinks & tea, coffee and sugar was a bonus.
The Barn was warm with an ample supply of logs, clean and fresh as always
We enjoyed a lovely relaxing time, some went walking whilst others enjoyed a quiet, restful time.
Thank you Claire as always. Highly recommended accommodation in a lovely setting away from the crowds
We booked Old Orchard Barn for a short two family break and despite the weather had a wonderful time. It's a fabulous property surrounded by amazing country walks. There are also some stunning castles a short drive away (Raglan and the White Castle winning our children's top prizes). I can't recommend the property enough.
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 and Charles Rolls, 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, home of the Mappa Mundi and Chained Library(www.herefordcathedral.org/visit-us/mappa-mundi-1), 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).
