We booked a family (4 Adults [2 dogs]) weekend break to visit our Godson at university in Newport. Originally we were just looking for somewhere to lay our heads but Upper Grippath Farm Holiday Cottages turned out to be so much more.
The accommodation was perfect, the views amazing and the sausages outstanding!
For an extremely reasonable price we had:
- a 3 bedroom (1 double, 2 twin) cottage, the double was downstairs giving perfect access for our disabled Mum,
- spacious living area
- well equipped kitchen
- modern bathroom including shower, bath, toilet and hand basin
- upstairs toilet - no waiting or long queues!!
- 2 very spacious Twin bedrooms with wardrobes and chest of drawers.
Perfect for a large or extended family.
Upper Grippath Farm Holiday Cottages are situated just outside of Risca not far from Newport or the M4 - ideal location for exploring the local areas or as a base for touring further afield. There is a very narrow and windy single track country road which takes you from the main road up to the Upper Grippath Farm Cottages but in my opinion this adds to the visit giving a sense of seclusion not isolation.
We were welcomed on our arrival and there was always somebody nearby if we needed anything but they were never intrusive.
Fantastic visit which we hope to repeat soon.
Also we highly recommend the farms own sausages!
