“Perfect Group Getaway”
Reviewed 5 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed over the New Years period and I was a little nervous as the other guests left it entirely with me to decide on the location this year so they were completely in the dark with regards to the location. I needn't have worried, everyone absolutely loved it!

From the warm welcome when we arrived, being shown around the place to the place itself, it was absolutely perfect. The photos and description give you all the details of the property, but the photos themselves just don't do it justice. We were a group of friends, plus my two boys, 10 & 8 years old and every one loved it.

The place was exceptionally clean, nothing was too much trouble and there was plenty of space to park the 3 vehicles from our group.

I am struggling to think of anything they could do better with this place, if i was being uber picky, there could have been a couple of additional kitchen items such as some more baking trays, bigger pans etc but that isn't an uncommon thing so we had prepared and bought extra already.

I would 100% go back and thank the owners for the friendliness and letting us enjoy an exceptional NYE there.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful review with us, we are over the moon that you had such a great New Years break! It is always a lot of pressure to be the one organizing group trips but we are so happy to hear that your whole group loved the lodge! To hear you describe it as "perfect" is music to our ears, and what we are always striving for, we are so pleased you felt this way. We certainly hope to see you all back in the very near future!

“Pictures don't do it justice - a real gem!”
Reviewed 20 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Booked 2 nights stay for party of 8 adults and 4 young children. Valerie the owner was very friendly and answered all my questions prior to our arrival, she even gave us details if we wanted to get a food shop delivered - which we did.

The pictures really don't do the cottage justice. It was spotlessly clean with plenty of space to eat, drink, play and spend time together. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and a TV, this was great with the children as it meant we could stick to our usual bedtime routines and put the tv on quietly in the morning without waking others.

The floor of main living area is real wood and as such was a bit slippy, as was the stairs. So if you have young children who tend to run everywhere rather than walking, take some slipper socks for extra grip!

We will definitely be going back to stay at King Offas Lodge. It was the perfect place for our pre-Christmas get together with the grandparents. In fact my husband didn't want to me write a review in case it gets too popular!

Thank you Valerie.

“Comfy!”
Reviewed 19 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Lovely place for our family get-together and so nice that we all had wonderful en-suite facilities and the owner was very helpful.

Although weather wasn't very good we we able to get out and about and our short trip to Abergavenny was delightful. What a wonderful small town packed full of interesting shops and eateries.

“FIVE GOLD STARS THROUGHOUT THIS PROPERTY”
Reviewed 5 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

On arrival, we were warmly greeted by the owner and shown around the property which was a dairy barn conversion, and every room was of highest standard. The bedding and towels were of a luxurious quality, and also the furniture and contents. Every bedroom was en-suite and television in each room! For those that enjoy walking, you are right on the Offa's Dyke footpath from which the views were tremendous. The week went too quick and would love to return.

“Excellent accomodation in peaceful surroundings”
Reviewed 19 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at King Offa's Lodge. The house is immaculate, every bedroom has an on suite bathroom or shower room. A downstairs bedroom catered well for members of the party with mobility issues. The accommodation has been well planned and kitchen equipment , bedding etc. are all high quality. The owner is friendly and helpful and lives in a farmhouse up the road which is run as a B&B. There is also a smaller cottage on site. We used supermarkets in the centre of Monmouth and enjoyed days out in the Forest of Dean.

people found this review helpful

We were Mrs Barrell's first guests at King Offa's Lodge and I must say that she has done a superb job in converting this old building into a holiday cottage. The specifications and workmanship are of a very high standard, and for those few things that were missing, nothing was too much to ask: service came with a smile and a friendly chat as well as the implement requested.

There is also much to do in the area: within half an hour you can find canoeing, fell-walking, cycle hire and castles to visit, all in some very pretty countryside.
