Ramblers Rest Cottage

Visited by Tripadvisor
Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Crickhowell, Brecon Beacons National Park, Wales
Ramblers Rest is perfect for a break in the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park. Grade II listed, this self catering cottage nestles in the oldest street in Crickhowell, and is only 2 minutes walk from the River Usk, famous for its excellent fishing and wildlife.

Recently refurbished throughout, the cottage is centrally heated and offers well appointed accommodation, but retains the charm and peaceful atmosphere of its mid-1800s origin.

Whether you are walkers, anglers, outdoor pursuits enthusiasts, nature lovers, or just want to enjoy a retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life, Ramblers Rest is the ideal starting point.
