“Honest, traditional farm house in a magical setting, the kids loved it”
Reviewed 4 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The house is located down some winding country roads with easy access to Hay-on Wye as well as all the adventurous activities that the area has to offer. We booked a few days open canoeing and gorge walking at Black Mountain Adventures and the kids had a great time.
The house can be a bit tricky to find and our sat nav tried to take us through a field so beware of the directions but the house is delightful and very comfortable. Its well run and one of the nicest holiday rentals we've had over the years.

“Comfortable, well equipped cottage in excellent rural location.”
Reviewed 9 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My book group friends and I had a fantastic stay in New House while enjoying the Hay Festival. Richard was helpful and friendly both before and during our stay and the house is very comfortable and well equipped. Previous reviewers have described the location of the cottage but it is difficult for descriptions or photos to do justice to the beautiful garden and countryside that surround New House. We spent many happy hours sitting relaxing and enjoying the peace and the views in between trips into Hay for culture, good eating and shopping. I would definitely book this cottage again.

Absolutely fantastic! Richard's attention to detail made this a very special place to stay. Yummy chocolate cake, magnificent views, everything we could possibly need and more. Well deserving of its 5* rating.

“A delightful few days”
Reviewed 19 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

My wife and I spent a few days with our daughter, her husband and our 2 delightful grandchildren. New house is located in a superb location, must be seen to appreciate it, in a quiet elevated position above the beautiful Wye Valley with amazing views down the valley towards the majesticBlack Mountains. Sitting in the conservatory observing birds of prey and foxes with loved ones was a delight. The cottage is well equipped, interesting working out how to use some appliances but always a delight and the wood burner in the lounge was so cosy each night. A wealth of board games for evening entertainment was quite nostalgic. Delightful walks easily accessible from the front door. Great if you have a dog. A wonderful find. We will return.

“The perfect house & location to relax away from the rest of the world.”
Reviewed 18 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The attention to detail at New House makes it a home from home. You're welcomed by cake & flowers & Richard even sent us a message before our stay to see if we had any questions. The house is of a high standard with spacious rooms. We spent the majority of our stay in the lovely country kitchen. The big garden was maintained beautifully & the dogs were in their element running around it. The views take your breath away & you truly relax in this idyllic setting.

“If I could buy this place, I would!”
Reviewed 21 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

I stayed here with my partner and another couple last weekend. The cottage was absolutely gorgeous in a wonderful location with amazing views across the valley. We were welcomed by some flowers and a cake (it was my birthday celebration), so many thanks to Richard, the owner for his thoughtfulness.

The interior of the cottage is beautifully thought out and furnished. It is more than a home from home, with everything you could need. Roasting hot wood burner with an endless supply of wood and attention to detail around every corner. If there are 6 of you staying, the absence of a second bathroom may be an annoyance, although we were happy to sacrifice that because everything else was so lovely.

Monty the cat was the icing on the cake for me - an absolute joy! I could easily have taken him home. I am already thinking about coming back in the warmer weather to make the most of the garden, riverside and lovely walks straight from the front door.

A truly comfortable and relaxing stay. Can't say enough positive things, but I think you get the gist!
