We are proud that Foxes Reach was recommended in The Times Newspaper Travel section in November 2002 and again in September 2005.
Monmouthshire Cottages were recommended as home from home for you and your pet in The Lady in 2009
Vanilla Cottage was recommended in The Times in February 2007 and Tintern Abbey Cottage in 2013
We were chosen for a GMTV film crew base and 4 dieters who stayed with us for an entire week whilst doing an amazing amount of tough exercise and a severe diet regime. They filmed all around the area and we enjoyed having them and watching them each morning on the TV. Not sure how much time the dieters had to enjoy Tintern Abbey Cottage. They said they were grateful for the spa bath, comfy chairs and good beds. Poor things were always worn out and half starved but it certainly worked and they looked great at the end of the week! Put us all to shame!
We were the base for an ITV film crew recording a piece about VAT for ITV Wales. Interviewed us too.
When we won the National Tourism Awards Best Place to Stay in Wales we were besieged with cameras. See the little movie below which was shown at our very own Oscars night.
When the Olympic Torch entered Wales at Monmouth we were invited to be there in the VIP area. Along with the Olympic torchbearer, the First Minister of Wales Carwyn Jones, oh yes- and the Regimental Goat !
In January 2015 we heard that we have made a shortlist for the National Tourism Awards 2015 and in February it was confirmed that we were in the top three businesses , and we are the only accommodation business, in the category for Best Visitor Welcome. This led to quite a lot of press comment across South wales and Gloucestershire. The "Oscars" night is 25 March 2015 and we will then know if we have won Bronze, Silver or dare we hope Gold.
Monmouthshire Cottages has won the Self catering category for South east Wales at the National Tourism Awards!
Five star holiday cottage, Foxes Reach, in the Wye Valley near Tintern, has had a whole new kitchen fitted. It now boasts shiny new units and a range cooker as well as a new fridge freezer, microwave, dishwasher and all the "bits"
The car parking area has been extended and landscaped at Tintern Abbey Cottage so now there is room for around 4 cars in the fenced and gated rear garden.
