Lovely apartment in beautiful area with lots to do and see and ideal for walking. However it didn't have an information book so we had to Google recycling, local information etc and had no safety information. There was only 2 sets of crockery which was inconvenient, more baking equipment would have made cooking easier. The cafe was also closed all Read moreweek so we didn't get the benefit of that or to meet the hosts. Overall we were slightly disappointed in our stay Hide

If anybody is looking at the photos and is slightly concerned that headroom might be restricted by the eaves, we did not find this s problem. The apartment is more spacious that the photos allow.

Excellent friendly and helpful hosts. The cottage is close to many attractions and walks of varying difficulty. Easy walks in Abergavenny town and the Keepers Pond nearby are worth exploring. The food, cakes and icecream in the tearoom downstairs are very tasty.

Second time staying at the Skirrid Hideaway, and it was as superb as ever. It really is a unique experience staying here, with the brilliant Copper Kettle Cafe right below the accommodation, and the glorious Welsh countryside surrounding quite unsurpassable. The standard of the facilities is unbeatable. The property's owners and hosts, Tracy & MikeRead more, are patently two pf the nicest people you could wish to meet. Absolutely nothing to find fault with. Recommended without hesitation. Hide

The view from the front door is inspiring. The apartment is in a great location and perfect for privacy. Both the kitchen and bathroom were well equipped.
