Fiona and Malcolm have maintained these high standards for years now which is so very hard to do.An excellent venue for walking , cycling, sightseeing , shopping Pubs and restaurant and casual dining. What ever the weather!

Lovely comfortable cottage with walks from the doorstep

Response from the owner Thanks so much for this great review. We really appreciated the clean tidy condition in which you left the cottage. Not everyone does and it is so appreciated. We hope you will come again before too long. Kind regards and good luck to your daughter with her sporting ambitions

“Highly Recommended”

Reviewed 13 Jan 2014

We just spent 5 weeks over the Christmas period in this cosy cottage which is situated in an idyllic setting next to the River Usk. The cottage is exactly how it looks in the advert and has great amenities and the hosts (Malcolm and Fiona) couldn't have been more accommodating - we even had a christmas tree with all the trimmings. We were very comfortable and enjoyed the garden feeding the birds, watching the squirrels and even saw an owl - and have already made enquiries about returning for another 5 weeks. Had quite a few delicious meals in the local pub The Black Bear, which is located about a mile away and Usk Village is very convenient, quaint and has great amenities (good Indian restaurant and local Spar shop). Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend a stay at this cottage.

“Delightful cottage for a very comfortable stay”

Reviewed 1 Oct 2013

We loved our stay in Vanilla Cottage. A warm welcome by the owners, never experienced that, very nice! A minor problem immediately solved. Good equipment in every way, great crispy white cotton on the beds and bathrobes as extra,the owners thought of everything while making this home a beautiful holiday cottage. Lovely details, beautiful garden to attract butterflies and birds and lots of info for trips around the place, for eating out etc. And a very thoughtful idea: a observation diary to note specialties as spotting kingfishers (a lot!), tawny owl in bedroom sill, a beautiful rainbow. It is nice to share this info instead of only a guestbook with "thank you and hope to come back". We hope coming back, it must be great to be there around Christmas when the owners will decorate the house ready for that season!

“Beautiful cottage in a peaceful setting.”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2013

From the booking to leaving the whole process was simple and friendly. The cottage is extremely well equipped and comfortable. Sitting in the garden taking in the peace and quiet of the countryside after a day touring was a delight.

“A lovely relaxing place to take a holiday”

Reviewed 11 Jul 2013

The location was fabulous, the welcome warm, and the cottage had everything we needed for a superb getaway break. Several walks of varying length and difficulty, with most places being dog friendly especially the Black Bear pub garden which was great for relaxing and the food was top notch. I would certainly recommend a visit and will be returning in the future.

The Cottage is set in beautiful surroundings, it is comfortable and well equiped, when we arrived there were fresh flowers and wine left for our arrival, everything was clean and fresh and well presented. There were clear and helpful instructions in the cottage for the use of all the facilities. Vanilla Cottage is well situated for relaxing walks by the river Usk, and the nearby Nature Reserve.The owners were very accomodating and helpful with our booking, giving us a good recommendations for visits to local places of interests. We really enjoyed our stay and would definately recommend this cottage for a relaxing break.

A delightful cottage in a wonderful area surrounded by an abundance of walking opportunities. The owners had made an effort to ensure a warm welcome to everyone in our party including the dog. A thoroughly enjoyable long weekend.

“Complete relaxation”

Reviewed 30 Mar 2013

The booking and payment process was simple and uncomplicated.The welcome and introduction clear and with warmth. Vanilla cottage is a delight and very well equipped with quality kit. The weather was not great for our stay but we were able to get about on foot most of the time using the car as back up. We liked everything about the place.
