10/10 - Everything was perfect! Couldn't have been any better. - Lord - July 2021

10/10 - The party especially enjoyed the pool and the hot tub and everyone remarked on how comfortable the beds were and how well equipped the villa was. Days we can recomend out are The Birds of Prey Centre at Newent. The kayaking was really enjoyable. The visit to Monmouth was enjoyed as well, Salt and Pepper were very welcoming. - Cottle - May 2021

10/10 - The facilities at The Benches are amazing! There is so much to do, with the outdoor swimming pool, hot tub, pool table, cooking on the aga, to epic hide and seek games and cuddling up in the cosy living areas, it made it so that we didn't need to leave the house. We made some superb family memories at this house and can't wait to be able to come back! - Pritchard - May 2021

10/10 - This is a beautiful home with an amazing view over the River Wye, in a great location.The heated pool, hot tub, sauna and pool table were fantastic.

10/10 - Beautiful house. We particularly enjoyed the use of the pool table, hot tub and pool. Lovely bedrooms, very comfortable and I loved the views from the riverside bedroom. We will definitely stay here again. Fantastic day out at Monmouth Canoe Centre. - Rothwell - September 2020

10/10 - The perfect stay for a group of friends made up of couples. The Benches was a really really beautiful house, (even more so than the pictures).  Having the pool, hot tub and pool table really made our holiday! We'd 100% consider coming back again in the future. River Wye, Breacon Beacons, Monmouth Town, Forest of Dean. - Sayers - September 2020

9/10 - Place was amazing how ever not toddler safe with no pool enclosure, no gate on steep outdoor steps and drops. Views where incredible. We can recommend days out to Clearwell Caves, Tintern Railway and Raglan Farm. - Skilton - September 2020

10/10 - We particularly enjoyed the view, the swimming pool and hot tub plus walks by the river and boating in the river. - Hincks - August 2020

9/10 - Barron - July 2020

9/10 - Would have been good if there were better instructions provided telling us how to adjust the heating, especially the underfloor heating. Maybe have some larger/pint glasses available to use. Overall though, everyone really liked the house and we all had a great time. - Hawkins - March 2020

10/10 - The house in general was amazing! We would have loved to have had the pool available too. - Williams - February 2020

10/10 - Enjoyed the views from the balcony particularly due to storm Dennis raising the river by 3 metres for our stay! Facilities, pool table, hot tub and sauna were a real bonus. Great house for a family get together. Would love to revisit in the summer to make use of garden, pool and balcony patio in the sunshine. - Davies - February 2020

10/10 - The whole experience was great! The house was beautifully decorated, it had everything we needed, it was clean, comfy beds and most important of all a hot tub! It’s a great place to go walking. Monmouth is a lovely town with lots of places to eat. - Benning - February 2020

9/10 - We loved the house and the area. It is a beautiful home and we had a lovely time, thank you. - Martin - February 2020

10/10 - We had a fabulous stay. We can recommend a vistit to Tintern Abbey. - Clayton - December 2019

9/10 - We went to Ross on Wye, Tintern Abbey and plenty of walks. We walked into Monmouth during the day and evenings to eat. We also hired a private mini bus to take us all to Cheltenham races on New Year’s Day. Only having one television with a large party didn’t work for us. It meant that everybody had to watch the same programmes in the evening rather than split off. Also televisions in all bedrooms would be better too. Games room, large lounge with fantastic kitchen/dining room worked really well. - Warren - December 2019

9/10 - Family group of all ages staying for a long weekend. We very much enjoyed the hot tub and the pool table. Spacious house in beautiful setting. - Edwards - November 2019

9/10 - We really did have the most fantastic weekend at The Benches - it is very homely and we had great fun using the pool table and the hot tub. The kitchen was extremely well equipped which for guests who like cooking was fabulous. Ladies who welcomed us were lovely and very good at explaining everything. It was great that we could do such lovely walks from the house too. Many thanks for excellent service and communication - we are already looking for dates for next year!! We walked up to the Kymin one day which was great - stunning views and definitely worth the climb up! Walked back down through the woods and along the road into Monmouth. Also walked along the woods to Redbrook and the pub - beautiful Autumn walk with a carpet of colourful leaves and looking down at the swollen river. Ended up being a bit of an adventure as didn't have a map and decided on taking the left hand fork and not the right hand one - which we did discover on the way home and was a lot easier!! - Battishill - November 2019

10/10 - Our experience could not have been any better, we all had an amazing time, being able to swim in the pool every day was just brilliant our family of all ages loved it, would highly recommend The Benches. - Hill - October 2019

9/10 - We loved the Arts and Crafts house. A beautiful house in a lovely position. I would have given it 10/10 but we found the automatic gate a bit of a problem waiting to turn in and it is a bit of a distance carrying stuff along the path to the front door ... particularly in the rain! Nothing you can do about that though. We can recommend days out to Symonds Yat, the Hedge Puzzle, Tintern Abbey, walk up to the Kymin ...from the house. - Dawson - October 2019

10/10 - We had the perfect weekend. The Benches is amazing - a beautiful house with things to do for every age. Our family ranged in age from 5 years to 84 and we all loved the pool, hot tub, pool table and board games. Would recommend a stay at The Benches to everyone - we will be back! - Devonald - October 2019

9/10 - Put shelves for toiletries in the bathrooms and a shower head in room 5. Try and improve visibility coming out of the car park onto the main road. - Lawson - September 2019

10/10 - What more can we say that hasn’t already been said about this stunning property. My husband and I celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary here at The Benches with our family. The owner Jackie took time out to congratulate us and wish us a memorable stay. Which it definitely was. The views from the villa across the River Wye were stunning, You would never tire of waking up every morning to this vista. We made great use of the fabulous pool, hot tub, pool table and football table. Great hit with our grandchildren. We all had a wonderful time here and were made to feel really at home by the Managers of the property Mandy and Elizabeth. They gave us a very warm welcome and explained everything we would need to know about the property and all our needs. You can tell they love and care for the villa as if it was their own. Thank you ladies. Ps you even arranged the perfect weather. We will be back. - The Harradines - September 2019
