Beautiful location, fantastic accommodation (was planning where to put our furniture as could move in to live there!). Best holiday we have had in years. Would definitely go back again.
Stunning views over the Usk Valley
Left on 12/05/2012 for a stay in September 2012 | Barry Benson
We chose Gilwern as we have previously visited the area and always planned to go back. We arrived and were given a warm and friendly reception by Nicola. Nothing was too much trouble. The property is brilliant, lots of space and a bedroom with a balcony and views to die for out across the Usk valley to Sugarloaf and the Black Mountains.
The property is sited about 1 mile from Gilwern centre which has all the basic amenities - minimarket, petrol, pubs, newsagent, pharmacy, doctors surgery and even a chip shop. Just down the road is the town of abergavenny with a superb range of food and other shops as well as several supermarkets. Arrange a visit in September to coincide with the abergavenny food festival.
Gilwern sits on The Heads of the Valley road so access to Cardiff, Swansea, the Brecon Beacons and Brecon town, the Forest of Dean and the Black Mountains is simplicity itself. If driving is not your cup of tea then there is walking in all directions and of all standards on the doorstep. The Brecon Beacons Horseshoe is a challenging walk and again only about 40 minutes drive to the start. There is even the Monmouth and Breckon canal with towpath a few hundred yards down the lane. Industrial archeaology abounds with Blaenarvon Iron Works (World Heritage site), Clydach gorge and iron works and Blorenge Mountain and its network of tramways and quarries all within 10 miles.
We loved every minute of our stay. The only downside is that the local pub is at the bottom of the hill that leads up to the Coach-house, alright going, a challenge for the return journey. The best bit, we're booked in already for next year

Tranquility at it's best
Left on 05/01/2012 for a stay in March 2012 | ahmad ghuzal
Intense tranquility that is best described the Coach House and its surrounding areas. One can enjoy both the country and the nearby cities; the choice is yours within any day's excursion. There is a certain warmth about Coach House that complements the tranquility.The house is equipped just like any home. The surrounding areas are fantastic for walks. A brisk walk in the crisp morning air will set the mood for the day's activities.
Great location, great house, hope to return.

Spacious and comfortable in a wonderful area. Good for parking too.
A very comfortable home from home
Left on 11/11/2010 for a stay in August 2010 | Jones family
The Coach House is in a lovely, peaceful spot but near to towns, with a variety of good restaurants. Crickhowell and its lovely kitchen shop is very close and we also visited Cardiff by train from abergavenny. Our grandson took full advantage of the large, lawned area at the back of the house and we all enjoyed a walk along the canal which is just down the road from the house.
A lovely family holiday

Nicola was so helpful. The coach house was clean, well-equipped, cosy, romantic, quiet. Everything we wanted. Location was great as near Crickhowell with lots of good pubs (The Bear pub is fantastic) and good walks nearby.
Great Cottage in lovely location

Great cottage in lovely location. Good sized rooms and outdoor space. Perfect for exploring the surrounding mountains. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Only minor negative observation was that the shower was poor but not a bid problem!
Relaxing in comfortable accommodation
Left on 12/03/2009 for a stay in October 2009 | Coastie
Friendly greeting on arrival from the owner. The
house was very comfortable and well equipped. Plenty
of places to visit in the local area especially Big
Pit at Blaenavon with Cardiff just a few miles away.
The house was very quiet and peaceful but could
possibly benefit with the addition of a dishwasher.
