We had a fantastic weekend staying in the Cider House at Wern-y-Cwm Farm. Laura and Emily were excellent hosts, with clear communication and quick responses, being available if needed during our stay, whilst the key lockbox meant is was easy to come and go as we liked. The house was perfect for a cosy winter getaway, and I imagine would be equally great in warmer weather, with both a private walled garden and communal outside space. The grounds are beautiful and the views are stunning. We walked from the door up and over Skirrd Fawr and can recommend lunch at the Skirrid Mountain Inn in Llanfihangel Crucorney. Abergavenny is a 10 minute drive away and has plenty of shops and good pubs and restaurants. Thanks for a great weekend / Diolch yn fawr iawn!

The Dairy was absolutely perfect for our stay. Couldn't have asked for a better property or location. Immaculate, bright and colourful, with a lovely garden and hot tub. We played skittles on the lawn and had a table tennis tournament. We had a lovely pamper and movie night. We did a beautiful walk up the Skirrid, and were blown away by the views and the amazing weather we had in October; we got sunburnt! Kitchen was perfect for the amount of people we had, and had everything we needed. Can't recommend this lovely place enough.

Just to say we’ve left the Farmhouse now after the best weekend! My sister had the best time as did everyone so thank you. The house, barn, gardens, everything is beautiful - everyone kept talking about it. 

Everyone had such a lovely time, it is a truly beautiful house and in such a breathtaking and amazing part of the country! (We can't thank you enough). Every room was so beautiful and so well thought out, everyday we were there it seemed like we found something new to love! The farmhouse kitchen treats were delicious too - it would be too hard to pick a favourite item as they were all divine.

The Dairy was  perfect for our anniversary celebration and although we were so lucky with the weather the inside space would still have been great if we’d have had to spend more time inside . Everything was of high  quality and we were very comfortable and whoever designed the conversion needs to be congratulated and we were noticing more and more artefacts as the weekend progressed . Thank you to all the staff for helping to make our stay so special in a perfect venue .

We had a lovely stay in the Cider House, thank you. The location and property were just what we wanted. We appreciated the earlier check-in on Thursday. The team were brilliant, so helpful and friendly and the totally delicious Welsh Cakes were fab. We booked the Hunter 's Moon Inn for dinner on your recommendation, which we also enjoyed. Again, we were made to feel very welcome and the food was spot on.

I can honestly say that all of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Dairy on Wern-y-Cwm farm. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law were saying just yesterday how we would definitely love to come back again for another stay. It's such a picturesque and idyllic spot that you have there and we couldn't believe that we were only half an hour away from home! So thankful for all your help and assistance with the booking, it really has been the best service I've had when booking any kind of accomodation/stay.

We had a beautiful weekend with friends at Wern -y-Cwm on the 4th of June 2022. It is located in a stunning setting with amazing views of the Welsh valleys. The accommodation was excellent, with cosy open fire features along with outside equipment, including a brand new hot tub to make your stay as comfortable as possible regardless what time of year you visit or weather conditions. We would highly recommend a stay here, we will definitely be returning in the future. Thank you Wern-y-Cwm for a great weekend.

The cottage is perfect. It’s so pretty inside and in the most wonderful setting. Check-in and check-out was so simple and there’s loads of helpful information inside about where to eat and explore. It’s a great location - rural and perfect for walking and exploring the wilderness, yet close enough to various pubs, amenities and adventures. Will for sure visit here again!

We had a weekend at Wern-y-Cwm at the end of July. The weather was very kind to us considering we had been promised thunderstorms! The weekend was very chilled out with lots of games on the grass, a lot of trampolining, a lot of eating, and plenty of wine. After a very long time without seeing the family, it was the tonic we had all needed. My sister in law tried to book WYC for us all for Christmas she had been so impressed!! 

The house/grounds/general quality of everything you have done is wonderful, and if I was Laura, I would not be sharing it!! I tried to book it for our friends in June 22 (and us), and you were already booked - word getting around obviously! I’m sure we will be back (when we can get in!!), but in the meantime, I wish you the best of luck.
