Croes Vaen is a stunning place to stay, and we had a lovely time. Every room is beautifully done, and the farmhouse is spacious. We were kindly welcomed, and given a very nice hamper on arrival. The location is great - only a short drive from Monmouth, and it is quiet (silent!). I hope to be back!

Croes Vaen is an idyllic home set in the gorgeous wye valley countryside and we couldn't have felt more at home! We absolutely loved the facilities here, especially the sauna and hot tub. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful and communication was easy. We would definitely recommend staying here and we will be back for a future holiday!
