About Cathy Edge
We have lived in Wales on the border with England for over 20 years. Our family has grown up on the Kymin.
Why Cathy Edge chose Monmouth
We have lived on The Kymin for over 20 years and love the rural tranquility and spectacular views combined with easy access to the shops and local activities. The Top Barn is situated in a field adjacent to our property. We often have animals in the field including cows and chickens.
What makes this Barn unique
The view is the best part. We have tried to incorporate this into the different rooms in the barn. In addition, there is a tranquility on the Kymin which means that you feel you are away from it all whilst in fact within 10 minutes you are back in town with all the amenities you require. There is very little light pollution so on clear nights the stars are remarkable.

Lovely view, beautiful barn conversion
We had a lovely few days with the dogs. Enjoying country walks, local pubs and evenings in front of the log burner.
Top barn an absolute hidden gem to find,
Just lovely. Spotlessly clean, everything of top quality and very comfortable, everything you need is there. The views - WOW! Stunning. The stars at night, best we've ever seen! So peaceful and tranquil. Hosts David and Cathy so kind and helpful especially trying to accommodate us with our daughter who is in a wheelchair. Will definitely return.
A cosy wee cottage with gorgeous view.
Lovely location, in a quiet spot. A clean Cottage with comfortable beds.
Amazing views - great hosts.
I really don't know where to start. It was so good, especially the banter and barter of jams and jellies! Took a break to re-charge the batteries. Spent a lot of time on some great walks so re-balanced the energies rather than re-charged. Didn't have the best of the weather, however that didn't stop us doing what we wanted. Thank you Cathy and David.
Small but well formed.
We very much enjoyed our stay, the area is absolutely stunning and so unspoiled. Cathy was a great host, always on hand to answer any questions. The house itself is very small and minimalist but we spent so little time there it didn’t matter.
Cosy little house on the hill
We had a wonderful vacation at the Top Barn. A compat property on top of the Kymin hill. The view from the window is something we always love to remember. The quietness, the nature around. The warm welcome of Cathy and her patience to us. The proximity to the forest, the brecons, Cardiff, Bristol. No doubt for us - a perfect place we love to come back again in the future
