“We decided to visit this place again as soon as we stepped through the front door!”
Reviewed 22 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Without a doubt, staying at the Reading Room House for Valentine's Day was the perfect choice. The accommodation was mindblowing as soon as one stepped through the front door. From the contemporary decor, to the numerous comforting features, to the nice little touches, this holiday home was the embodiment of luxury.

Our stay was made extra special with roses, bed decorations, a bottle of champagne, and a delicious home-made cake! These little (or should I say big?!) touches really made our stay perfect.

The entire home was spotless and very inviting. The underfloor heating made the house very warm and cosy, whilst other features such as the jacuzzi bath and living room fire gave the whole place a fine sheen of luxury. The bedroom was very plush, with a very large and comfy bed. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, making cooking with my partner a massive amount of fun! Although we didn't stay very long, we made use of the plethora of DVDs and board games on offer. Due to the wealth of tourist information of offer, we were able to discover Elan Valley which is quite simply the most breathtaking place I have ever seen..

Diane and her husband have done a fine job making the perfect getaway and I wouldn't be able to ask for anything more from them. Needless to say, my partner and I will be staying again, and I have recommended the holiday home to several colleagues. If you want ridiculously good value for money and a quiet getaway in a perfect location, this is the place for you!

Liked best: Everything!!
Liked least: The Wi-Fi was on the blink unfortunately, but we were warned about this prior to our stay. We didn't really need the Wi-Fi anyway, but some people might want a reason to escape from the other people in the house...?!

Me and my boyfriend booked this last minute as a quick little get away to celebrate our 5 years together for 4 nights.
Our check in time was 4pm but we arrived a hour early and diane was outside to greet us.
When diane opened the front door for us we was amazed our jaws dropped! we couldn't believe how homely and modern the reading house was.
There was home made bread and cake and also a bottle of prosecco as a welcome package which was lovley.
2 kingsize bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, loads of games and dvds, amazing kitchen over looking the living area.. and a remote for the fire!!!
we went to élan vally which was a 20min drive from reading house and also we went to breacon beacons which was a 40min drive from here.
Also my sister and her boyfriend stayed with us on ur last night here and they loved it, we had a come dine with me night :) We had a problem with our wifi and graham sorted the problem straight away he was very helpful. i wanted to bring this house back home with me i was very sad to leave :( diane and graham have very good taste!
I've come home and uploaded some pictures and everyone has been asking me where i have been and stayed. So I've passed on the vicarage holiday homes website to a few friends so expect a few bookings :) I will defiantly be coming back here again!!!!! thank you

“this is a 5*plus”
Reviewed 30 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed in this accommodation for three nights, everything was perfect, we had been provided with a very generous welcome pack, thank you it was fantastic, the weather when we stayed was a total disaster, we were not able to do many out door activities due to high winds and constant rain, all our needs had been catered for dvd's books etc, we felt very warm and cosy in this lovely house, it would be a treat to return when hopefully we can enjoy it in warmer weather...Thank you for all the attention to detail...

“Immaculate, beautiful, fantastic.”
Reviewed 31 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We booked this cottage for 3 nights and wish that we could have stayed longer. The cottage itself was absolutely immaculate - with the contemporary fixtures and fittings providing the ultimate in luxury. Graham and Diane helpfully provided lots of information on local activities and places to eat and also left a lovely welcome pack that included freshly baked cake. There were a good selection games and DVD's to keep us amused on our one rainy afternoon.
We explored the nearby Elan Valley and made use of the OS map in the cottage. The views were spectacular! We also went to the National Show Caves which was a lovely day out. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to go to the Red Kite feeding, but we will certainly do that when we come back next time!

We are in the middle of a glorious week staying in the Reading Room, Newbridge on Wye. If you love luxury in a peaceful setting this is it! The Reading Room is fitted to a very high standard with wet room and jacuzzi bath. Lovely living space and the owners have thought of everything you could possibly need including a welcome pack of home made French tart, and bread. Not to mention jam,butter, cream and beautiful flowers! We are loving our visit especially going back in time somewhat in this part of Wales. If stay here make sure you eat at the Golden Lion within walking distance. Very good food and good value
