“The perfect venue for a big family get together”
We had a fabulous long weekend at Dukes Farm, hiring out all the cottages for a family get together. Ruth and Ken were so welcoming, kind and informative, giving us recommendations for walks, pubs and restaurants. The Farm is set in an amazing location surrounded by the most beautiful views and landscapes. The accommodation was fantastic. The essentials were already there so we could have a cup of tea on our arrival! We did a big Tesco delivery and it was ordered on time with no trouble. It’s on their favourites list apparently! Each cottage was extremely well equipped. Everything and everywhere was clean, bright and warm. The beds were really comfortable and we all slept really well too. The boot room offered a vast selection of board games and dvds, aswell as maps for planning your walks in the area and an array of wellies should you need them. We did!! There was a good selection of books and a toy box for the little ones too. It really was a perfect weekend. We will definitely be going back in the future. Thankyou Ruth and Ken for giving us the opportunity to visit and explore such a beautiful part of the country.
Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to leave such a thorough review, Denise. Our aim is to give our guests ample resources & comforts so they can really relax & make the most of their precious time together.
Firstly a huge thank you to Ruth for such a warm welcome to Dukes Farm her hospitality was amazing throughout. The wood burner was in full blaze, milk tea coffee and some yummy cookies ready for our arrival, most welcome after a long drive. Ruth had some really helpful advise for walks and cycling locall, where to eat and what else the area had to offer. We stayed in Goose Cotts for a long weekend to do some cycling and walking. The location is perfect for both. The farm is set amoungst beautiful countryside and the black mountains. The views are stunning and we were able to walk straight from the farm in all directions. The cottage was perfect for the two of us, all the facilities required and more. We had intended to eat out while away but stayed in each evening relaxing by the fire it is hard to tear yourself away. The bed was so comfortable we both slept better than we had in a long while I only we wish we could have stayed longer. If your looking for a break away from it all surrounded by nature and the great outdoors with all of the comforts you desire then I can not recommend Dukes Farm enough.
Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to write this great review, Rebecca. You did some sterling hikes, so it's good to think Dukes Farm has plenty of scope for our energetic young visitors, as well as being invitingly cosy too.
“A perfect place for RnR”
This is the second time I have arranged a Group booking at Duke's Farm, and I have no doubt that at some point I will be arranging a third !! That in itself says much about this wonderful place to stay. We booked all 3 barns for our party of 12, and used the larger Swallow Barn to host our group dinners. All are extremely well equipped, comfortable and cosy, an ideal place to relax. The scenery in the surrounding area is quite stunning, and with a range of walks to suit all abilities. Also, nothing like sitting out on the terrace in the afternoon sun, enjoying a glass of wine, and watching the sun go down over the hill. Wonderful !! A trip into Hay on Wye (only 7 miles away) is also worth a visit, there's a pleasant walk along the river there, and some great little shops to visit.
Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to leave this lovely review, Tracey. It really is a pleasure when guests return to find the next time as good - & hopefully better!
“Highly recommend, warm welcoming from Ruth and great facilities in and around the cottage”
I have stayed at many cottages before across the UK but The Goose Cottage and its owners were the best so far. We received a very genuine and lovely hospitality from Ruth. The cottage was well equipped we felt at home straight away. Very comfortable, cozy and so quiet. We spent many nights reading or playing board games by the fire. We had some rainy and sunny days. When it rained heavily we played endless games of pool and table tennis in the Games room. There are so many walks you can take from the farm, you don`t even have to travel anywhere by car, which is what we really did. We will definitely recommend to friends and family and return to this lovely little gem one day.
Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to leave this lovely review. Nice to know there's plenty to do without driving anywhere, even when it's raining! Ruth
“Much-loved, rustic, homely embrace”
We stayed in Swallow Barn, certainly the most extravagant (and mis-named) "cottage" at Dukes Farm. From almost anywhere in the spacious ground floor there is a breathtakingly beautiful view through the floor-to-ceiling fully-glazed old threshing door opening towards the formidable mass of the Black Mountains. The ever-shifting light and rapid changes of weather are worth the experience by themselves. The plan is clever, with most of the very-well equipped bedrooms and en-suites on galleried floors elegantly fitted into the roof spaces. The key to this highly personal, even eccentric place is that Ruth, one of the delightful owners is utterly absorbed in the place and loves its history and topography deeply, which somehow translates into the huge and hospitable supply of domestic comforts. And it is the most wonderful countryside - as far removed as you can imagine from the plains of eastern England, with abundant and delightful small towns close by - though nominal distances make no recognisable sense - "8 miles" can easily take half an hour to drive, but a pleasure in itself, and of course ideal for the outdoors life.
Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to write this thoughtful review: you're right, we love the place!
“Far from the Madding Crowd...”
Dukes Farm is a hidden gem in the Upper Monnow Valley, off the beaten track, rustic, peaceful and wild. However, do not be deceived! All this belies the comfort and luxury of three beautifully restored barns off a farmyard which seems to be out of another century...the barns are well equipped with all "mod cons", amazingly comfortable beds, more than adequate facilities and a wonderful mount of peace and privacy. The owners are lovely - hospitable, friendly, happy to chat and advise on things to do and yet discreet, and only there if you need them! I have stayed in both the Granary and the Swallow Barn and can vouch for both properties.
Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to leave this lovely review. Sorry to be tardy in replying, but we've been on holiday ourselves! Hope to see you again some time. Ruth
“Absolutely fantastic home from home !”
Dukes farm cottages are situated in an amazing part of the country, We stayed in The Granary , a lovely cottage with everything you need for a fantastic holiday. The spacious kitchen, dining and living area upstairs was great and well equipped, as was the two big bedrooms on the ground floor with stunning views from the windows. The owners Ruth and Ken made us and our dog feel very welcome and had prepared all the information you could think of about local places to visit and walks to do !
Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to post this great review. It was lovely to have you all here enjoying yourselves!
“Great family get together”
We hired all three cottages for a family holiday for the 15 of us. Fantastic views and lovely spotlessly clean accomodation. Ruth and Ken were amazing hosts who were on hand if we needed them. Lovely walks around the area, we especially enjoyed the walk up the Cat's Back and the local pub. Would highly recommend to others. Thanks for a fantastic memorable stay.
Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to write this lovely review. We thank our lucky stars to have a great walk & a great pub so close by. Ruth
“Fantastic property in beautiful location”
We stayed in Swallows and the Granary as a party of 11 for a week for a family 70th birthday celebration. What a wonderful week we had! The properties are so well equipped, spotlessly clean and we wanted for nothing. We all agreed that it was by far the best equipped property we had ever stayed in - from local information and provisions in the boot room to the generous amount of crockery, glasses and cutlery in the cupboards! We loved the fact that the larger cottage seated all 11 of us in the lounge, around the dining table and on the terrace. The children and teenagers in our party particularly enjoyed the trampoline and we all enjoyed the games room. The view from the terrace was simply stunning. Wonderful cottages in a beautiful part of the country. Thank you Ruth and Ken for your hospitality (and help with delivery of the birthday cake!)
Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to write this lovely review. The families who celebrate at Dukes Farm add to its heart & soul, so thanks.
Lovely cottages in a beautiful setting. We have stayed in a number of cottages over the years in various areas of the country but these truly stand out. They really are a home from home. They are so well equipped, the boot room has so much information on the local area in. We were a party of 10 (plus 2 dogs) and can safely say all would love to return.
Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time for leaving a review. We all love the boot room: it's the 'go to' place for even those who live here.
