Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Crickhowell, Brecon Beacons National Park, Wales
This cosy 3* cottage is located in a private cul-de-sac near the centre of the pretty town of Crickhowell, in the Usk Valley. The famous Bear Hotel is about 100 metres away. We have private parking and it takes about a minute to walk to the shops. The location is great for walkers and cyclists (both off and on-road) with some serious hill climbs locally. Secure bike storage. Private yard for motorcycles or your dog. Visit Wales Walkers and Cyclists accreditation.

If you are interested in a more relaxed break there are many attractions to visit within a reasonable distance and lots of short country walks you can start from the cottage. A comprehensive choice of maps and guidebooks are provided. The owners live nearby and are always available to advise.

The Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons are on the doorstep for those needing more ch...

Crickhowell, with it's castle. is located in the central part of the lovely Usk valley, overlooked by the ancient hillfort of Crucywel, known in english as Table Mountain. The town lies between the Black Mountains to the north and Mynydd Llangattock to the south. The very picturesque Monmouth and Brecon canal contours to the south of the town in an elevated position.
