“Ideal in every way”
Reviewed 12 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The house was very clean, very well equipped the set in the most beautiful location. There were many little touches that made us feel that the owners cared about what they were doing for their customers and the environment. The house had a good layout for a family get together and was spacious compared to other similar properties. Thank you Roz and Pip for the de-stress!

“A lovely, comfortable home in idyllic Black mountain location”
Reviewed 12 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed for Christmas week and enjoyed plenty of room for visits from our family. The house is beautifully appointed, well heated and perfect for a winter break. The owner's had decorated for the season including a large real tree, and there was a never-ending supply of logs for the wood-burner. The house is in a great location for hill walks and yet only 5 minutes drive from the shops of Abergavenny.

“Wonderful house, Breathtaking views.”
Reviewed 2 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

There were 4 of us adults and a 17th month old granddaughter. The White House is a lovely warm and inviting house set in peaceful surroundings offering spectacular breath-taking views all round. There is every modern convenience throughout the house, wifi is provided free too. The under floor heating really spoilt us! Our hosts, Roz and Pip were friendly and supplied us with freshly laid eggs from the hen house, wine and the most scrumptious Welsh cake imaginable.
We were lucky with the October weather being so mild so we were able to get out and about walking and visiting further afield. We climbed Sugarloaf Mountain - its a must. We took the recommendation to visit the Crown pub in Pantygelli and weren't disappointed. A gentle walk of just over an hour or so there and the same back but the views along the way made the journey delightful.
We took our little granddaughter to Cantref Adventure farm and she really loved it - even at her young age there was plenty to keep her interested.
There is nothing to fault at the White House and the owners, Roz and Pip have worked so hard to ensure that all who stay there have a really special and relaxing time.
We highly recommend staying at The White House , Porth y Parc.

“Stunning location, luxury accommodation”
Reviewed 21 May 2014 for a stay in March 2014

A group of friends visited the White House for a short walking holiday. Lovely rural location with stunning views of Sugar Loaf mountain and Abergavenny nestling in the valley. Only a two mile walk down the hill to Abergavenny and a number of country walks straight from the back door. All the fun of the farm; black lambs;chickens wandering about, a variety of birds outside the kitchen window. Fresh eggs, home made cake. Excellent facilities, very comfy beds and Roz and Pip extremely helpful. Highly recommended.

“You'll no sooner arrive than be wanting to book your next visit.”
Reviewed 21 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Reviews already on the site seem to have covered pretty well everything one would want to say, and the stock of superlatives has been deservedly raided. Roz and Pip appear to have approached the appointing and furnishing of the White House in exactly the same spirit with which they set about the Old Barn - by thinking hard, down to the very finest detail, what THEY would want if they were staying somewhere, and then setting out to provide it for their guests, all at the very highest spec. I cannot recommend the White House too highly , nor speak too highly of Roz and Pip as people to do business with. Perfect holiday hosts.

“A luxury farmhouse at a non-luxury price in an idyllic location.”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Having stayed at Roz and Pip's converted barn last November, I was keen to try the White House as soon as it was ready for letting and I was not disappointed. It was spacious and comfortable, furnished in Roz and Pip's inimitable style: combining modern with retro. No expense has been spared on the interior and there is everything there you need. It is a pleasure to cook in the kitchen because it is so large and well equipped - and the knives are sharp - a rarity in rental properties! Beds are comfy and the lounge was really cosy in the evenings with the log burner roaring. (Wood is included in the price.)

The views from every room are to die for. We were looking at the new born black lambs from one window, the free range chickens and pet rabbit from another, the cows grazing and, of course the fantastic view right down the hill to Abergavenny. At night the starry sky is breath-taking and you feel you are miles from anywhere and yet, the great thing about this location is that Abergavenny is only 2 miles down the hill for shopping, restaurants and tearooms - civilization!

The house is in a perfect location for walking and sight-seeing. There are wonderful walks from the door up into the hills. Even the most inexperienced walker can reach the top of Sugar Loaf and feel you have climbed a mountain! Slightly further afield, a short drive away, there are dozens of fantastic walks in the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains.

Roz and Pip make you feel very welcome and provide you with freshly laid eggs, a bottle of wine and delicious home made cake. They also made my friend's little dog very welcome too!

We'll definitely be back.
