A beautiful, well equipped cottage in a really beautiful and peaceful location. The weather was too hot to do a lot of walking but we did a bit and also enjoyed swimming, waterfalls and lots of evening tennis.

A really wonderful cottage in a charming location. The surrounding gardens are absolutely stunning, and the view was so relaxing. There is lots to do in the surrounding area, and some great food to be had as well (especially at The Gaff in Abergavenny). Would strongly recommend to anyone looking for a country cottage holiday.

We really enjoyed our stay and our hosts were very hospitable. The cottage is excellent - it is cosy, comfortable, very nice taste and with all the mod cons you would need. We loved the log fire too.

The Billiard Room is our favourite place to stay in Wales as it feels remote but isn't actually too far from Abergavenny and Crickhowell. The views are amazing and just stepping out of the car you feel a weight lifting from your shoulders. The cottage felt very warm this time and it is always handy to have a drying room available after being out inRead more the hills nearby. Colin, the gardener, is always keen to help out with any questions and can recommend some places to visit. Hide
