“Fantastic holiday cottage in the perfect location.”
Reviewed September 4, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We are just back from spending a couple of nights at Rectory Cottage, and wish we could have stayed for longer. Our 2 boys (7 and 5) loved the trampoline and zip slide in the garden, and had a great time with the chickens, cats and especially Pepper the dog, they are already asking us when we can go back! The cottage is beautifully finished and has everything you could need for a very relaxing holiday. The walks from the cottage along the River Usk are amazing and we spent ages just skimming stones in the river. We are now planning our next trip back there... but will be staying for longer next time.

“Wonderful cottage with outstanding hospitality”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We were given a very warm welcome by Liz and her family on our arrival to the cottage. Awaiting us was a welcome basket with homemade bread and fresh eggs (which were delicious). The cottage was very clean, modern and cosy. Everything was provided for us. A very exceptional cottage, the best we've stayed in by far! The location was perfect, very quiet but only about 10 minutes away from the bustling town of Abergavenny. We enjoyed walking in the fields and by the river and the local walk up Sugar Loaf Mountain was a real treat. Our son loved the family dogs, cat and especially feeding the chickens and collecting their eggs. We also enjoyed the impromtu invitation to the 'Star gazing night' at the Rectory which was fascinating! Overall a thoroughly enjoyable stay and a lovely family. Would highly recommend the cottage and thanks again to the family for making us so welcome.

“Excellent village escape”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We had a very welcoming basket of eggs and home made bread on arrival which was a nice touch. The place was very clean with a well equipped kitchen. The ensuite bathroom was very large, the bath luxuriously big, and there was plenty of room for our small family. The location was exactly what we wanted - remote and peaceful. The only slight disappointment was there was no view from the place. I would stay there again!

“Lovely walks and lovely accommodation!!”
Reviewed June 6, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Lovely accommodation, had everything we needed. Very tastefully decorated and furnished. Spotlessly clean. Kate and Liz made us very welcome, the freshly laid eggs and home made bread were delicious. Used as a base whilst completing on a purchase of a property in the area, and will definitely recommend to friends and family. Thank you for a lovely four days!!!

“What a nice place”
Reviewed May 19, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We had this lovely cottage/annex flat for two nights and were impressed by the quality of the facilities and fresh bread/eggs. Great location next to river Usk. The owner's dog is super friendly. My dog also had a great time staying there. Highly recommend for people travelling with a dog.

“High standard cottage in lovely secluded spot”

Stayed at rectory cottage for a weekend whilst visiting family in Wales. Fantastic little cottage for an escape. The cottage is spotlessly clean with all modern facilities with a very high standard of finish. The cottage maybe small but is laid out really well and there was ample space for two adults and our teenage daughter. The little enclosed courtyard was perfect for our little dog and fantastic quiet country lanes for walking. Thank you for the home baked bread and free range eggs on arrival.

“What a find!”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We have just come back from a fantastic stay at The Old Rectory Cottage. The area is just beautiful, stunning countryside, with a lovely little church next door and small farm nearby - picture postcard and very peaceful. The cottage itself is spotless, beautifully done and very cosy. The bread, eggs and milk on our arrival was a lovely touch. Our 3 children (6yrs, 2yrs and 11mnths) had the best time and our eldest was very sad indeed to leave, as were we all. We had a very quiet car journey home! The kids loved the garden with the chickens, the trampoline, a tree swing and more. They loved spotting rabbits in the fields in the morning, the lambs on the farm and the two resident dogs were a huge hit.

But the main reason our stay was so memorable .. the lovely owners. Liz, Kate and the kids were incredibly welcoming and kind.

Highly recommend
