“Fantastic location”
Reviewed July 1, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed here between the end of may and start of June and had a wonderful time. The cottage was cosy and well looked after with everything you could think of to enjoy your stay. The owners were very helpful and knowledgeable about the location and the surrounding area which is beautiful. The views from this cottage are fantastic, best enjoyed with a large bottle of wine on the patio in the evening after a hard days walking. We will be returning next year.

“Cosy cottage, ideally situated to walk the Hills of Abergavenny.”

The cottage is perfectly well equipped, and ideally situated to explore Monmouthshire and South Wales. The views from the cottage itself are wonderful, and to be able to walk to the top of Sugar Loaf from the front door ,without crossing a road, is a great bonus...

If you get a chance to spend any time with the hosts in the neighbouring farmhouse that will also be time very well spent...

We rarely revisit the same hotels and cottages, but this will be one we will certainly be revisiting, hopefully next year...

Reviewed September 20, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This was a fantastic holiday. The cottage was lovely and quaint. The hosts very accommodating and knowledgeable about the local areas of interest and the views were out of this world. We have 2 young border collies and they loved being able to run free around the 7 acres and for the first time in their young lives we actually could see they were completely worn out.. Would highly recommend this cottage to anybody that is looking for a base in South Wales. Thanks Sandra and Chris we will definitely be returning next year.

“Just like in a picture book”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We had a wonderful stay in this tiny little house on the foodhill of the Sugar Loaf. When you enjoy the stunning view in the morning at breakfast for the first time, you already know that this was the right choice. You can start walking trips right from the cottage. We did not plan a lot in advance but Sandra and Chris were very kind and provided us with everything we needed when we asked for information about the region, which let to invariably good activities during our stay.

“Top Cottege”
Reviewed July 21, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Just got back from Shepherds Cottage, it was everything it was claimed to be, superb location, lovely cottage, and great owners very friendly and helpful. Weather was superb and cottage lent itself to the good weather we BBQ'd every other night in front of the cottage and took in the spectacular view.Hope to go back in the future.

We stayed in the attached cottage and it was wonderfully well equipped for a very comfortable stay. Our hosts were very welcoming with great tips about local sights and pubs. A great location and highly recommended.
