    Home from home; an absolutely fantastic cottage for a quiet and peaceful break away from busy city life. The cottage has everything you could ever need and the decor is lovely. There were even games, books and DVD’s to keep us entertained if the weather was bad!

    What can I say about this... The scoring says it all and I have reviewed it fully on my own website Myself and my wife have used cottages for a while now and always been pleased with the locations we have had and the facilities too, but in this case, White Rose Annexe, owned by Brian & Jill was above and beyond our expectations Superbly laid out on two floors, you absolutely wanted for nothing, there was a queens sized bed in the bedroom, which was exceptionally comfortable, clean and beautifully laid out, with a very nice, roomy ensuite which had a good shower and very large bath, which though we didn't use it, as we are shower users, was very spacious The stay we had was relaxing and being truthful, in hindsight, wished we had booked for 2 weeks in stead of one Brian & Jill went out of their way to be hospitable, and were very pleasant ameniable people, who we couldn't fault. Of all the cottages we have used, we really didn't want to leave and would highly recommend this for either single travellers or couples

    We had a great week in the cottage. It was clean and comfortable. The owners Brian and Jill were nice people and were welcoming, around if we needed them. We arrived on a stormy day and Jill met us in Govilon to guide us along the lanes to the cottage. We were using Google maps and the cottage was not where it told us it was.

    This is a beautifully located hilltop property. Very recently set up, and furnished to the highest standard. Splendid country round about, plenty of places to visit. In easy distance of Cardiff if you want a city experience, quiet countryside of you don't.

    Lovely place to stay. The only noise came from birds of prey and some nearby donkeys. The accomodation was very well equipped - there were even sandwich boxes and flasks for taking a picnic! There are walks right from the door and plenty of others nearby. OS maps were available to borrow. The Big Pit and Iron Works were to be found in the next valley which were very interesting - and FREE! Jill and Brian were very friendly and made sure we were well looked after.

    Excellent holiday.. Spectacular views from the cottage.. Comfortable with everything you would ever need.. Jill and Brian were wonderfully accommodating with helpful suggestions when needed.. I can't recommend it highly enough.. We were also blessed with good weather which helps! Loads of things to do from the cottage so an ideal location for exploring.

    We stayed a week in the newly listed accomodation. Despite the travel directions the location was not easy to find but with the guidance of the owner we got there. From that moment on there was literally nothing to complain about: beautiful location on the slope of a hill overlooking the other side of the valley. A stunning appartment, fully brand new equipped, spacy bedroom and bathroom, nice outdoors, delicious welcome package. The owners were very helpful. There is hardly any traffic coming by which gives the opportunity to enjoy the sound of silence and every than and again a sheep, monkey, woodpecker of buzzard.

    Response on behalf of the owner; First of all thank you for booking the white rose annex, we appreciate your kind review and comments. We are happy to see our location suited you with the quiet roads, farm surroundings and also the animals in the area. We are happy to see these added extra value however we are hoping you heard a donkey and not a monkey! We look forward to seeing you again here at white rose annex.
