“Stunning location with excellent hosts”
Reviewed 9 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed in the attached cottage and it was wonderfully well equipped for a very comfortable stay. Our hosts were very welcoming with great tips about local sights and pubs. A great location and highly recommended.

“Sheer Delight”
Reviewed 26 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

I went down to Shepard's Cottage for a week to get away from it all, with the dog. The accommodation is fantastic for a couple of people, great facilities, everything you need and more. Very lovely owners more than welcoming, i felt like part of the family. Spectacular views from the cottage itself the evenings whizzed by glancing across the hills. You can sit in the quiet without a bother in the world in or outside the cottage, or take a couple mins drive down the hill into the centre of town! My buddy (the dog) was thrilled with a giant grin the whole week! There are donkeys and dogs to keep you company or you can wander up the rest of the mountain (sugar loaf) in about 1hour 15mins. It's all clean and spacious and the owners are happy to help when needed, thoroughly enjoyed every min and very sad to leave, i hope to return in the future as everything was IDEAL. Many thanks.

“Fantastic relaxing place, with great hosts and fun for the dogs”
Reviewed 2 November 2012 for a stay in July 2012

This is a lovely place to stay if you want somewhere nice and quiet and away from the crowds but not too far from civilisation. The cottage is great, it has wonderful views over the valley towards Skirid (the hill opposite) which is a good walk with the dogs. The cottage has a good kitchen and shower room, also a comfy lounge and a nice seating area outside for watching the sunlight fade away on the evenings. There is a very pleasent walk behind the cottage up the hill to the top of the Derry (its a bit steep at first but it eases off and once at the top its almost flat). At the top there are wonderful views over Abergavenny and also a good view of the Sugarloaf mountain which I managed to to get to the top of in 2 hours from the cottage (I'm not that fit but improved over my 2 week stay). The hosts Chris and Sandra are very friendly and helpful, nothing is ever too much bother for them. Fab time had by all - we'll be back!
