Climb the Skirrid mountain and be rewarded at the summit with splendid views of the surrounding countryside.

Clares cottage is clean, cozy and comfortable with continuous hot water. The bed & sofas are very comfortable. It is in a peaceful location with lovely views. The hosts live next door but the cottage is not overlooked so it is private. We had a wonderful stay. Highly recommend. 5 stars.

It was our second time at Clare's cottage and again we loved it. We were blessed with lovely weather which allowed us to go for long walks or simply sit in the enclosed patio of the cottage. The cottage itself is a little gem with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We will definitely go back.

We had a wonderful time, the cottage was lovely and very well equipped and very warm, which was great considering the weather. We will definitely go back again. You do need a car but you could walk if you are feeling energetic. Abergavenny is a lovely town and there were 2 mountains to climb, one even within walking distance.
