We loved the Granary and its idyllic setting with an enormous array of wildlife. The accommodation was second to none with all the modern tech you could wish for. A warm welcome on arrival gave a personal touch, the owners were on hand throughout our stay for any needs. A truly amazing place to stay, highly recommended.

This cottage is exactly as the brochure describes it. Everything in it was first class and the view from the lounge watching the birds and squirrels was very relaxing. It is ideally situated for places of interest in South Wales. The host was very accommodating and were around if needed.

The whole experience was superb and we loved The Granary. The area was so scenic, who needs to get on a plane when you have places like this.

The Granary is my piece of heaven tucked nicely into the welsh countryside. There is nothing nicer than waking up to the sight of the wildlife wandering around the beautiful garden and pond.

A faultless property with really lovely owners. I cannot recommend this property highly enough, I want to live there permanently.

It was well equipped, the garden was beautiful, and the scenery and the place was stunning. If you love wildlife this is the place for you. We will definitely go back. The photos don't do it justice. It is so peaceful and tranquil, you can really unwind. There is so much wildlife to watch, you really don't need to go anywhere. The owners are a very lovely couple and so kind. I will book 2 weeks next time it was that good. I cannot describe how beautiful it was, just go there and you will know what I mean.

It was not a holiday, but a business trip. I fell in love with the Granary upon arrival and it did not let me down in the slightest. My experience was limited due to work commitments, but I loved my stay there so much so that I have already booked additional weeks in February and March.
Mr Erving
June 2015
We were impressed by the accommodation - especially the facilities, design, decoration and the wonderful garden and wildlife. Our hosts were helpful and friendly. We liked the area and the variety of places to visit. A peaceful oasis of calm.

I particularly like the surroundings of The Granary. The garden and the surrounding countryside are simply the best way to wind down on an evening. I have stayed at The Granary on 5 occasions now and each stay has been as good as the previous. The owners are very accommodating and very friendly.

We thought that the cottage was even better than shown on the website and we loved the serenity of the surroundings. In my son's words idyllic. We think it was the best place we have stayed in.

The grounds of the cottage are idyllic, 3 beautiful acres in rural countryside, it was so peaceful and quiet. The cottage itself is wonderful, built by the owners with many really interesting features. We recommend this cottage very highly and rate it as one of the best we've ever rented while on vacation.

In winter, the warm underfloor heating is very welcome. Bird watching out of the huge barn window is lovely. Near to the mountains with loads of walking near by. It's so modern that it felt like staying in a posh hotel to us!

Wales is such a beautiful place; a must see destination. The cottage made it a unique and a magic weekend. I have been travelling for the past 10 years, and I have never stayed in a place with so much character and so much care/love. The landlords do an outstanding job. 10 of 10, I would give it a 10 +.

Fabulous property in stunning grounds (really beautiful and very large) super location with amazing wildlife, especially bird life - very secluded and peaceful but near enough to a good size town. Owners friendly and helpful. Property superbly finished like a top 5 star hotel with excellent luxury touches like wet room and full sky tv - a really amazing property and location.
Mr Osborn

Although The Granary has only been operating for one year, they get 5 stars for setting the standards in a very competitive business. The property was just amazing, location tranquil and the hosts give a warm Welsh welcome without being intrusive.

As a holiday cottage, this one is a fabulous airy contemporary place to stay, ideally situated for Abergavenny which is a 10 minute drive and Monmouth 20 minutes away. The property sits in a quiet spot 1/2 a mile down a one track lane in a small hamlet and, although it's attached to the owner's property, if it's peace and quiet you want, this is the place for you. As a couple we found the main upstairs living area spacious and very comfortable, with reasonable mod cons. The downstairs bedrooms are refreshingly modern, no chintz or floral, 'olde world' which makes a welcome change. I did battle with the shower in the wet room, which had 5 separate shower features, I never did work out how to just get the one I wanted running on it's own at any one time, but variety is the spice of life. The other great thing about the cottage was that it was constantly warm and, if you are of a nesh disposition, then the wood burning stove can kick out some real heat. The overall result is a cozy warm venue and night with a lovely light airy feeling during the day. Definitely one of the better places to stay.
Miss Lunn

This cottage is one of the best we have ever stayed in! The gardens and woodland are beautiful. The layout of the barn really brings the outside in while still feeling comfortable and cosy. A fantastic place to switch off and relax. Highly recommended!
March 2014
My wife and I visiting from Australia wanted to visit South Wales and try out a few of the local restaurants around abergavenny. Picked this place off the Internet and have not been disappointed. Accomodation and grounds are superb, owners that live next door extremely nice and accomodating with help on local area. Visited coal mine nearby and was well worth it especially as it was free to go down the mine. Pheasants walking around in the garden, beautifully peacefull place.
August 2014
The cottage is set in a beautiful location and is a peaceful tranquil hideaway. It has a multitude of wildlife to keep you entertained. There are many good walks in the area and the nearby town of Abergavenny has something of interest for everyone.
September 2012
This is a wonderful place to stay- the interior is fantastic - the gardens amazing! We stayed here for that very hot week at the end of July- so we stayed outside most of the day. I would stay here again come rain or shine as its such a super place and location. The owners were also friendly and helpful.
