A wonderful peaceful experience. Loved going back in time filling the wood burning stove, sitting by the fire pit staring at that beautiful scenery and not seeing a sole or hearing the doom and gloom on TV. Highly recommended. Will be back

Lovely weekend away in the hut! Fantastic views and setting in the woods and an excellent location just 10 minutes from Monmouth for shops, restaurants etc. The hut is cute and cosy, wood burner is excellent for keeping it warm in the evenings. The bed is comfortable and gave us great nights sleep. It was too windy for us to enjoy outside space butRead more we still got the views and saw the squirrels from the hut which was lovely! A very comfortable and relaxing stay! Hide

This cottage was smaller than I thought looking at the website, however it is very well designed and comfortable. The location is amazing. More remote and private than I dreamed of.

The hut was wonderful! Every inch of space has been used incredibly well to provide a really excellent standard of accommodation. The kitchen has a fridge, gas hob, kettle, toaster, with crockery and cutlery. There was a portable DVD player that we used, to watch one of the provided DVDs and the DAB radio was fab.

Excellent stay, the location is fantastic plus good walks right from the door. We parked up and never got in the car again til the end of the holiday. Very tranquil, superb for a relaxing break. The wood was fully fenced so no fear of the dog getting out (he loved it as well) would definitely stay again.
