About Cathy Edge
We have lived in Wales on the border with England for over 20 years. Our family has grown up on the Kymin.
Why Cathy Edge chose Monmouth
We have lived on The Kymin for over 20 years and love the rural tranquility and spectacular views combined with easy access to the shops and local activities. The Top Barn is situated in a field adjacent to our property. We often have animals in the field including cows and chickens.
What makes this Barn unique
The view is the best part. We have tried to incorporate this into the different rooms in the barn. In addition, there is a tranquility on the Kymin which means that you feel you are away from it all whilst in fact within 10 minutes you are back in town with all the amenities you require. There is very little light pollution so on clear nights the stars are remarkable.

Fabulous place and landlady
Beautiful, nicely decorated barn, in a great location and magnificent views. Top place. I and my friends did not want to leave. Loved it!
The barn is stunning and very spacious for it's size with beautiful views from the front room and bedroom. The Kymin on which it is situated has many stunning forest walks over hilly terrain. Would highly recommend this to anyone. Cathy and her husband David are very accommodating hosts and very nice people. Honestly you can't go wrong here.
Amazing Views and Quiet Beauty
This was a lovely cottage with phenomenal views. If you are spending time in the Wye Valley and have a car, this location can be a quiet respite to return to after a long day of exploring the area.
We did not have a car which was problematic in terms of booking a taxi (they require multiple days advanced notice), but we still enjoyed ourselves and we were able to make it to some great walks by simply stepping out our door.
Our hosts were phenomenal and even picked us up from the bus station when we were not able to obtain a taxi. We also loved seeing Bruce the Dog! This was a lovely visit.
Pefect quiet retreat
Stunning views, lovely cosy property. Perfect for a break away with our 3yr old and some very friendly sheep
Fantastic property, lovely position
Really enjoyed our stay. Cathy was helpful before our visit and very welcoming when we arrived. A well resourced property, suited our party of three adults perfectly. Will rebook when revisiting the area in the future.
Enjoyed everything about the Top Barn. Situated in a great place with easy walks to the monument at the top and also in to Monmouth. Would stay again. The barn was clean,the views were lovely. Also the honey from the man down the road,who has the hives in the field, is fantastic and tastes so much better than the stuff you buy in the shops. Was a great choice we made in booking the barn.Thank you very much Cathy.
Thank you for your kind comments. The Top Barn is a great place to relax. We are lucky to have neighbours that produce fantastic honey and the bees also contribute to the wonderful flora we have on the Kymin.
