Had another fantastic week at High Cloud Farm. Even at the end of October the swimming pool was a big draw, as was the hot tub!
The accommodation is excellent and the 30 acres of land around is fantastic for playing & walking. The views are amazing and you feel remote, even though you're only 15 minutes from Monmouth.

We love the location of High Cloud - great views yet close to civilisation!
Kate G -03.10.23 - 8/10
Pool and hot tub- lovely
Loads of bathrooms- all clean and hot showers, lots of cups and plates.
We appreciated the wood walk finding gruffalo characters and the map of the perimeter. Fantastic views. Definitely recommend for a low demand, relaxing, large group family holiday
We didn’t leave the house!
No need in a weekend- had lots to do- walked around the perimeter, swam in pool and hot tub and kids played cards and table tennis

We were lucky to have good weather so enjoyed the stunning views and swimming pool. We were particularly warmed by the caretaker Mike who couldn't have been any friendlier or more helpful. Good communication throughout and we were confident he would be on hand if we needed anything
Susan G - 12.08.23 - 10/10
For us it’s the whole package. The split with the house and barn accommodation, works well for large groups/families. The games room, swimming pool and hot tub. There is something for everyone and you are nicely tucked away in beautiful scenery.
Sarah E - 31.07.23 - 10/10
Perfect space for family get together. We all live around the country and the location and house and amenities are perfect for us. M there is also very good communication with the house manager. We love it. Thank you! X.

We had such a lovely weekend at High Cloud Farm, celebrating a friend’s special birthday. The views were just stunning and the pool and games room a huge hit with the kids!

A great location for a family get-together. Plenty to do. Kids spent most of the time in the pool so who cares about the weather. Dogs wore themselves out and did little more than nap once home. Great communication from letting company. All in all a great experience
We are 6 families who are very close, but live in different areas of the country. We started meeting for this annual trip 20 years ago at various properties that we found as half way point, but it was only after we found BHHL property that we stopped looking for a new place to stay each year. Over time our families have grown and BHHL property is the perfect size for us all. We feel very lucky to have found it and our kids, many who are now in the their early 20s, still look forward to returning every year.
Besides the property being ideal we find the communication excellent, the property manager Mike is always on hand before and during our stay if we need anything. This is why we have just booked our 9th year with BHHL.

A unique experience for our whole family group of 25.
The whole facilities were frankly superb. A wonderful gathering to celebrate a very special event. I would thoroughly recommend Big House to prospective clients.
We stayed here to celebrate my dad’s 80th birthday. What a fabulous venue. The 3 kitchens were very well equipped. So much room for us all. We could all sit down and eat together. The pool and hot tub were so warm. We had a wonderful weekend making memories

A fabulous place to stay with all our needs met.
Amazing house and Barn with stunning views in every direction. Lovely to have the outdoor pool during the mini heatwave that we had. Hot tub as well but weather was too warm to use it. We needed to cool off! Plenty of room for our group of 20 and everyone agreed it was the best weekend ever! It was nice to have the house for the older generation and leave the barn for the younger ones, we could go to bed earlier 🤣. The journey there was interesting through the narrow lanes but we all made it ok.

Wendy L - 26.06.23 - 10/10
Enjoyed the lovely large spaces, the pool, the views. Would have liked a full length mirror somewhere in the farmhouse and pati umbrellas would have been welcome as the weather was in the high 20’s when we stayed. Mike, the manager couldn’t have been more helpful with any questions that we had.
Maggie R - 06.06.23 - 9/10
We loved the open landscape, the children spent lots of time in the woods or ‘rain forest’ as they called it.
Lots of space for cricket games and of course the pool was wonderful with good temp.
More tea towels would be helpful please .
We visited Symonds Yat but it was very busy , lovely sunny day, difficult to park but lovely river and lication
Janine W - 05.06.23 -10/10
Perfect for a family get together with all enjoying pool and jacuzzi. Games room was geat for a family games tournament of ping pong and pool.
A dart board would have been good.
A few passing bays on road in would be good as on leaving had to reverse down road as car coming down at 9:20.
Days out: Tredegar House
We had a fantastic stay at highcloud farm. The venue was superb and perfect for our group. The area is beautiful and secluded and the facilities are great - a lovely pool and loads of space. Mike the house manager was communicative and very accommodating. All in all would recommend and I can see us coming back in future

Perfect venue for a large family get together. Provides everything needed for young and old.
Gilly H - 02.05.23 9/10
High Cloud was absolutely fantastic, even from the get go Mike was really informative and met my parents at the house and barn show them around told them what you were looking at in with the views. As the lead for the booking he rang me up and told me what was on locally which was such a nice touch. High cloud itself was just fabulous it’s so spacious and even with 22 of us we all had our own space to do whatever pleased us. There was plenty to do the hot tub was well used as was the games room, we did use the pool it was a little cold but most of us braved it and managed to jump in for a couple of mins or float around on a unicorn!! The kitchens were well equipped and plenty of plates and utensils for everyone. We had such a fantastic time thank you so much. Would definitely recommend for bigger family’s to come it’s a perfect location. Days out: Yes, half of our group went to go ape beechenhurst it was fabulous! The other half went to the steam train at Forest of Dean and it was perfect for the little ones.
Susan TS - 24.04.23 10/10
Mike, the care taker, was so helpful. The House & Barn had everything we needed for a wonderful family weekend. The children loved the extensive gardens & grounds. Would definitely go back to High Cloud again.

Fantastic venue for a big group. Lots of space to spread out inside and out. Really helpful contact from company before & during our stay.
Lesley S 18.02.23 9/10
Lovely houses. There was 22of us so there was lots of room for everyone. Beautiful sun sets and fun in the hot tub.Playing ball games in the field behind the houses. The games room was another place which both adults and children enjoyed. Days out: Climbing Sugarloaf Mountain and being above the clouds. Amazing! Walking to get to Beacon View. Walking along the canal .Walking in the forest following the colour coded paths

Days out: Raglan Castle
Rachel P 31.01.23 8/10
Great space, lots of facilities for families to enjoy. Kids could roam safely. Hot tub was great. Houses were really warm!
Days out: Walked in the brecon beacons. It was beautiful
Ashleigh L 11.11.22
Everything at High Cloud was perfect! More than enough space for all 18 of us and the place was immaculate. We just wish we brought our dogs along because they would have loved it!
Bedrooms were lovely and comfortable, it was nice that you can’t hear any noise at all from the barn when you’re in the main house, so it’s a nice private space for those who want it!
Hot tub & games room are just great additions to what’s already a lovely house & space. We didn’t get to use the pool as it was out of season, but it looked huge, and the garden area around it looks like it would be perfect in the summer.
We would have rebooked straight away for next year if there were any weekends free in the summer, as we’d have loved to use the pool, but seems a lot of other people loved it as much as we did so it’s booked out 😆
Mike was very friendly and made us feel really welcome when we first arrived and when we left; And very accommodating again the second time around as we had left some items at the house which he was more than happy for us to arrange to pick up at our convenience!
Thank you again for everything 🙂

Fabulous property with great amenities. We stayed in the barn and all the teenagers loved spending time in the games room and the pool. The hot tub was lovely! And such a beautiful location. One negative was that the Barn was too hot. We tried to lower the thermostats but the overall temperature stayed at 24 degrees. far warmer than I wuld choose to heat my own home. We had to hope the windows which seemed a dreadful waste of energy. Wonderful stay though.
Eric R 01.11.22 10/10
A spectacular property with fantastic views all round, decorated to a very high standard. The double room on the top floor of the house is not as big as it looks on the floor plan because of the sloping roof. The pool, hot tub, games room (with a piano!) all much enjoyed. Plenty of heat in the house; underfloor heating in the Barn was too hot, turning it off/ down in bedrooms had no effect. Days out: For younger people: enjoy the pool and hot tub and games room on the property without going anywhere else. Otherwise: Monmouth worth a visit; Raglan Castle; Abergavenny. Footpaths for longer walks.
Ian W 18.10.22 10/10
The stay was excellent from being greeted by Mike on arrival. The property had everything we needed for a truly memorable family get together. The hot tub was a fantastic way to enjoy the scenery and there was always someone in the swimming pool! Thanks for the memories.
Georgia P 15.10.22 9/10
We went on a couple of walking trails. Was lovely walking around the countryside. Loved the heated pool, usually when we stay with a place with a pool it's closed after September so that was lovely
Ceri L 01.10.22 8/10
We wanted the remoteness of it, size of property. Amount of rooms. Swimming pool and hot tub
Helen M 07.09.22 10/10
Loved the house! Spacious and great facilities!
The pool and hot tub were an added bonus.
All families and dogs loved it! :)
Thanks for having us
Caroline B 30.08.22 10/10
The children all enjoyed the pool, games room and hot tub.
The oven in the mid barn (the one with the 24 seats) smelt really bad and was making peoples eyes burn/water - it may need looking at.
Mandy T 28.08.22 9/10
Loved the pool, hot tub and the space. Would be good to have wifi in the barn.
Amy L 20.08.22 8/10
No everything was perfect 👌
Helen D 16.08.22 10/10
Everything was perfect. Glorious weather to get best use out of the facilities. Fantastic pool and very spacious and well equipped accommodation. Can't fault it
Ken S 31.07.22 9/10
For our family group, ranging in age from 2 to 75, this place was perfect. We loved the swimming pool, hot tub, games room and the wonderful views. The 1.4 mile perimeter track was a bonus for those who enjoyed running each day. The manager and owner were very helpful and welcoming. Having a large group spilt between the farmhouse and barn was fine - except when it came to cooking and finding in which of the three American fridge/freezers we'd put things, so we found ourselves communting between the two buildings quite a lot.
Paul S 19.07.22 9/10
Smashing Venue lovely beautiful surroundings the house and the Barn had lovely rooms to sit in Bedrooms were excellent kitchen personally the electric Hobbs and ovens we found them very slow would’ve preferred Gas,,,, There’s a slot between the house and Barn where they had grey bricks we were thinkng that would’ve been a lovely place for a decent size barbecue if there’s 15 to 20 plus people,,,, games room was really nice had some nice fun in there although would’ve preferred a dartboard in there,,, saw the sunset that was amazing overall throughly the 20 people that was there we really enjoyed ourselves really nice place to come get get away from life and enjoy our selves
Kelly O 12.07.22 10/10
The pool was a added bonus for is as we had great weather.
Nicola W 02.07.22 10/10
Amazing weekend as always. We have already booked for next year which will be our 4th visit
Alison M 03.05.22 10/10
The view and location are breath-taking.
We loved the pool despite it being only just opened and therefore still quite cold - don't worry it warms up! The hot tub was a hit as well as the games room.
Check in was easy - Mike was very helpful and made us feel very welcome.
The space that this property offers for large group is fantastic - we never once felt on top of each other.
Everything we needed was there.
We would definitely like to return one day. Thank you.
Mel G 26.04.22 9/10
Great hot tub, great space, beautiful grounds! For me was just the curtains didn’t let out the light but that’s cos I am a rubbish sleeper
Anna B 12.04.22 10/10
Loved all of it - the photos on the website did not do it justice and we loved the space inside and out.
Peter D- 04.03.22 10/10
A really great place to stay. In a beautiful and quiet position with fantastic views. Lots of space inside and outside with very attractive walks in the farm. The house and barn were very well furnished with high quality furniture and fittings. Our weather was very good but if not there would be plenty of activities in the games room. I can't suggest any improvements
Sofia R - 02.01.22 10/10
Fantastic stay in High Clawd! Excellent communication, house was perfect for 21 of us! Lots of room with everything we needed! Thank you - we will hopefully be back!
Anthony J 09.10.21 8/10
The location and scenery are idyllic. The swimming pool and hot tub are very good facilities to have on site.
Chelsie J 28.09.21 10/10
At the property you are inundated with Daddy Long Legs - literally there everywhere. My only suggestion of improvement would be to install an insect killer. We really enjoyed there being two parts - the house and the barn, we kept the quieter of the bunch in the house so we had somewhere to escape to. Overall our experience with BHHL has been awesome, from the minute we booked the communication has been amazing! We were met earlier than we expected and we had a big asda shop delivered to sort us all out for the weekend. We left the property as we found it and on return another whatsapp group has been created for a return visit!!! Thanks to the team!
Ceri L 21.09.21 10/10
So many things we loved. The space for the dogs in particular. Pool, hot tub,views were beautiful. Would highly recommend and will definitely book again
Anne D 13.09.21 10/10
Beautiful house & location. Mike made check in easy, friendly & welcoming. Pool is a fantastic addition & made for a great family day! Look forward to returning to this wonderful property for the 3rd time, hopefully soon!
Helen B 09.09.21 9/10
Lovely spot. Lovely views. The weather was kind to us so we just stayed around the terrace and pool. Barn quite a long way from house, good for several groups but not so good for everyone to get together. Well equipped with toys, games, books etc, and lots of kitchen equipment though a bit random and spread between the kitchens. But very enjoyable stay.
Aaron B 06.09.21 9/10
We loved the heated pool, it was the highlight of the holiday for us as we had lots of kids in the group. The location of the house is perfect and the views incredible. All the bedrooms were clean and very spacious and the beds were very comfortable. One thing I think could be improved would be the games room. Its doubled as a storage room and was not a very inviting place to gather and the pool table and tennis table were both in poor condition. Saying that the kids still used it quite a lot.
Susan G 10.08.21
We liked how it was spread out with the Barn and the House. We loved the open fields and remoteness. The pool and hot tub were an absolute win win for us. The adults and children went in the pool every day as it was heated and very warm whatever the weather. Great place, shame it’s booked up already for next year.. Gutted about that.
Rebecca B 03.08.21
We all loved the house. Loads of space for everyone to chill and do their own thing. The pool was soooo good and we spent a lot of time in their. Generally the house and barn were very clean. We all had a bit of confusion with the directions. We all thought it would be helpful to have the pub postcode included as the instructions made more sense from here ( although it’s definitely further than you think it is). The other small thing I think would be an improvement would be better outside lighting. We ended up bringing lamps outside as it was really dark at night around the patio and we had to use torches to to walk backward and forwards between the barn and house.
Overall we had a really great stay and would definitely recommend.
Amanda I 03.07.21
Fabulous location, loved pool, games room, hot tub and the views. Property would benefit from a bit of TLC. Could be really high spec with a bit of a spruce up.
Helen L 30.06.21
My 2nd time at high cloud, its peaceful and tranquil place to stay everything you need for a weekend break is there, will see you again next year high cloud
Margaret R 08.06.21
We had a wonderful weekend , we were lucky with the weather, loved walking around the fields and woods, the children loved the Gruffalo trail and of course the pool was a huge success.
