An ideal location for a family/friends get-together. A cosy, warm house with plenty of room and a beautiful outlook.

The property suited our party of all ages and abilities, the ground floor bedroom with en suite was essential for our party. There was plenty of space for everyone to chill out, read or watch TV. A great time was had by all.

This property was fabulous for our New Year get away. It was very spacious, very well furnished and of a very high quality. Even with 20 of us staying, we did not get in each others way. The kitchen was extremely well equipped - it was like home from home! The second lounge was great for the children to play their computer games. I would definitely recommend Bryngarth.

Lovely property in beautiful surroundings and very well equipped. We had a great family reunion accompanied by fabulous weather and we were even able to eat out on the patio. The owners had thought of everything that was needed. Hereford was a few minutes drive away and had excellent play park facilities for the grandchildren to play in. We will be back!

Our age range spanned over 3 generations and several continents and we ALL had an amazing time! The kitchen was so well equipped that even though we were on holiday, we cooked all our meals in the house and did not eat out once - even baking our own bread and making cakes. There was room for us all to be together for family fun and enough space for us to have our own space if required. A brilliant house for a large family gathering and the week was enjoyed by everyone - we did not want to say goodbye at the end of our stay.

The property was perfect in many ways and easily accommodated a large family gathering spanning three generations. I would never tire of the beautiful scenery and the location was ideal for exploring the local area and beyond.

The house was the perfect size for our big group. It had enough bedrooms and bathrooms as well as all the utensils in the kitchen. The grounds were large enough to keep everyone entertained with games of tennis, badminton and croquet. For those who wanted to sit and relax, the scenery was breathtaking. We all had a thoroughly enjoyable time and would highly recommend this cottage.

The views were incredible and there was just so much space. The photos and description on the website didn't do it justice!
Mrs Keller

The house was wonderful. Beyond our expectations. It was beautifully decorated and spotless. The kitchen was fully stocked, all bedrooms were lovely and clean as were the bathrooms. We enjoyed sunny days in the garden and fun evenings together in the huge dining room and lounge. A wonderful time was had by all.

Not too far to travel but felt like on holiday, everyone of us would go back in a heartbeat. The house was spacious and cosy at the same time. Especially loved the dining room where meals could be eaten together.

The house is amazing; huge spaces and perfect for a large gathering. The real fire in the lounge is a bonus too. The bedrooms are massive and comfortable, kitchen well equipped and the AGA a real treat.
Mrs Leary

Absolutely stunning house, with wonderful views and good location. The rooms were a wonderful size, with 20 people under one roof the house certainly did not feel cramped. Fantastic kitchen and facilities. We all absolutely loved it!
Ms Goodman

Spacious hallway, main lounge and dining room enabling all ages of our large family to be together. Wonderful panoramic view across the countryside. Enjoyed opportunity to cook using the AGA. This amazing property was even better on arrival than the photos on-line portrayed, bellisimo!

This property was well kept and impressive. I had high expectations, and was not disappointed! It was unexpectedly easy to keep warm, and had plenty of wood in stock for the log burners. It was very well equipped throughout the property and tastefully decorated with many original features. The photographs do not do it justice. The views were amazing in all weathers. The owner was very helpful. We had an amazing time!!
Mr Rauli

Simply fantastic! There were 20 of us, and we were all comfortable. The place is on a hill so the views were amazing. Delivered on everything mentioned on the website. Very friendly and warm hosts. Will definitely go again.

Recently stayed with extended family. 20 from 5-81 years old. Great property with original features. Comfortable with large rooms. Fantastic views out over to the black mountains. It's billed as disabled friendly which we needed for grandma who's is wheel chair bound. The ground floor room is accessible via the back which is a bit tortuous to get to and the ensuite is a little small... But it worked for the short time we were there. I would say that it is in need of a little maintenance, particularly the kitchen which is very tired. There is a nearby chicken farm which does occasionally impose its smell when the wind turns in the right direction. Overall very good accommodation.

I stayed here in a group of 20, teenagers and adults. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. The rooms are all of a very good size, some of the bedrooms are massive. The kitchen was modern and contained everything you needed, the dining room table seated us all easily. The whole house is well decorated, not at all "tired" looking, so you feel very comfortable in it. But most of all, it was very clean and always warm, an essential in January. In addition, I left something behind at the house and the owners were extremely helpful and kind to arrange for it to be sent back by post. Thank you for a lovely week.
May 2013
We stayed here all 18 of us aged 6 months to 82 years and had a fabulous time. Well equiped house with enough space for us not to get on top of each other, owners were very helpful with regard to wifi (essential for teenagers these days!)We had caterers in on the Saturday night (Rococo) who again were very good. Only negative side was the entrance/exit (which was not well signposted)onto a busy road on a bend. Also limited bathrooms/showers for the number of rooms and number of people.

We have recently rented this house for a gathering of friends. It was perfect. Huge lounge, dining room & kitchen complete with Aga. The 9 bedrooms are all very large & comfortable. There are currently only 4 bathrooms but they owner advised come the summer there will be an additional ensuite added to the bedroom downstairs. The owner is very very helpful, ensuring we had extra high chairs and warning us on our day of departure of a major traffic incident locally. Location is beautiful, views are stunning but difficult to walk out from the cottage, you really need to use your car. Monmouth well worth a visit, very pretty little town.

I was invited to join a group of friends for a party weekend at Bryngarth - and it fitted the bill perfectly. The dining room sat us all for the Birthday dinner which was presented by outside caterers. They did an amazing job, particularly since a guest turned on the immersion switch which promptly cut all the electric to the kitchen just as they were preparing the food! The owner was with us in minutes and made a good job of fixing the problem with profuse apologies - it all makes for memories and tales to tell in the future! The caterers remain cool as cucumbers (atleast on the surface) and simply switched to using the AGA - the food was great! My friend an I shared a twin room with a bathroom along the hallway - as you might expect with so many people and old plumbing the shower was OK, but the water pressure wasn't the best and when we tried the bath, the water wasn't piping hot (hence the immersion switch incident!!). The beds were comfortable and our room was light and airy - at first we were non-plussed to be without an en-suite, but we soon got used to it. The house and gardens are stunning and if you exit the property from the far left field gate you can walk along the pavement into the village and local pubs. We also did a great hike around the local villages (accessible by bus or, like us, you can walk to the start and add a mile or two onto the total) ending at the Axe & Cleaver for lunch and back via The Pilgrim hotel for afternoon tea! The entrance to the property is TRICKY from the main road and particularly in the dark!!

The house has a large amount of rooms which can cater for a large family or gathering for a special occasion. Plenty of parking for all only problem can be the entrance of the drive because you leave and enter onto a main A road. As we had children we used the second sitting room as a play room for them, which left the main sitting room mostly for the adults. The dinning room can cater for everyone who is staying in the house with no problem. The bedrooms are all of a good size and have double beds in all rooms, the only bedroom which is a problem is the one downstairs because it has no bathroom on that level only toilets which you have to walk to the games room. It had great views from the front facing rooms over country side.

Everything was provided. Plenty of space for people to move around the house as it was so spacious. Finding someone could sometimes be a problem! The gardens were magnificent, extensive, and beautifully maintained. The view across the valley, from inside the house, and the terrace, was lovely. Large high ceilinged rooms and very warm, did not need the jumpers we brought. Hereford was just up the road with its shopping facilities.

A great place for a large family gathering, especially over Christmas.
