We have booked Croft y cwm twice now, it is in a wonderful location, near enough to Abergavenny but remote enough for the views to be frankly breathtaking. My husband is Dutch and totally fell in love with Wales based on our stay. Katie the owner is amazing. My 9 year old step daughters words just before we left pretty much summed up our experienceRead more as we found her sat on her bed gazing out of the window Im just saying goodbye to our beautiful Welsh house. We will definitely be back again. Hide

This cottage is in the most beautiful location with a view that will take your breath away. There is plenty of space inside and out and it has everything you need for a great holiday. Unfortunately the level of cleanliness is poor. The cottage requires a deep clean in order to get it anywhere near covid safe. The decoration is tired with many crackRead mores, stains and blemishes. The stairs and the bathroom need work. The price needs to reflect this as it cannot be classed as luxury accommodation. Hide

An absolute gem tucked away on a steep hillside and with breathtaking views. Lovely old stone built cottage in large (if steep!) gardens, surrounded by woodland. Extremely well equipped and everything easy to find. Beautifully clean and comfortably furnished. We have stayed in many cottages with our two dogs and this rates as one of the best. GreatRead more information on walks from the door. We'd love to return one day. Hide

The cottage was stunning, really well equipped kitchen and well appreciated get you in pack. Superb views and brilliant to walk from. Not convinced a Covid deep clean had been carried out (evidence to the contrary) but was serviceable with really comfy beds.

Great quiet cottage with lovely views. Very steep hill to get up but worth the climb ! Wifi works but only in the front room which means you can sit outside in peace :) Abergavenny a short drive away with some nice pubs / restaurants etc. and a few short walks nearby.

A wonderfully remote and pretty location. The house was spotless, very well equipped and absolutely perfect for our family of 5 with a jack russell. We went for the countryside and were not disappointed. The walks from the house are lovely whilst a short drive away are plenty more.

Beautiful cottage with stunning views - lovely and cool in the heatwave. Very spacious and well equipped - even better than the photos show. The beds were big and very comfy. We did several walks from the the doorstep and had a brilliant time - even teenagers. Just beware the driveway - it's steeper than steep. We arrived after it had rained and thRead moree car couldn't make it up without unloading some stuff. There is a parking space at the bottom if you don't fancy it but it's a bit of a trek. Hide
