Lower Lodge was recently renovated by its architect owners. It sits in a large garden at the heart of a farm. Just eight minutes from Monmouth, the cottage still feels remote. It has a downstairs bedroom with en-suite bathroom for the less agile, and three bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs. Two rooms have twin beds, which can be zipped together to form a superking size, making the cottage perfect for couples or families. We can also put up a travel cot, to accommodate 9.
“Lower lodge is a lovely mix of modern and spacious and rustic and cottagey. There's loads of space for everyone to spread out with lots of different rooms and seating areas. It's a really beautifully furnished. The location is so pretty and there are some lovely walks in the area. It's a great place to unwind from the world but not too remote or cut off. Beatrice and Stafford were lovely helpful hosts. Thanks for having us.”
Perfectly situated to explore all the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean has to offer, The Apple Loft is an idyllic getaway popular with honeymooners, walkers, cyclists and those just wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. With panoramic views across Mork Valley, guests can walk our grassy tracks, explore the old lime kilns, picnic in our fields, say ‘hello’ to the pet sheep and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature, stars and sunsets in this magical and relaxing retreat.
“The Apple Loft exceeded our expectations. It was spotless and we were so impressed with both the quality of the cottage and the thoughtful touches and extras put in by Jenny and Jemima. They seem to have thought of everything, down to the last detail. The kitchen was stocked with tea, coffee, sugar, milk and an amazing welcome hamper full of treats...which was very much appreciated! We had a fantastic experience and have great memories of enjoying the stunning views through the window. We also thoroughly enjoyed meeting their pet sheep. Jenny and Jemima were fantastic hosts. Their communication throughout the booking process was brilliant. We felt extremely well looked after throughout our stay as they were on hand if we needed anything. We had a wonderful time and we honestly cannot recommend staying at Apple Loft enough. Thank you both.”
Fully furnished holiday cottage with BBQ and separate garden.
“This cottage is very large and nicely laid out. It's in a lovely quiet spot, yet extremely accessible. I stayed for work so I didn't get out but there are plenty of attractions very close by. I would recommend abergavenny town, walks up the mountains or The Big pit is also surprisingly interesting. Also close by is Raglan play barn and farm which is awsome for kids. The cottage had everything I needed and I would definitely stay again. Thanks! Wendy”
