Old Six Bells Flat (OLDSI)
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This is an immaculate flat over part of the owner's home in the small hamlet of Llangattock; the old stone house, dating from the 1600's was once part of The Old Six Bells Pub. There are still another two pubs in the village called The Horseshoe and The Vinetree- well known for its food. Llangattock is a ten minute walk over the River Usk to the market town of Crickhowell, nestling between the dramatic Brecon Beacons and the softer Black Mountains. Behind the village of Llangattock are the limestone crags of Llangattock Escarpment and the Llangattock Cave system, one of the most elaborate in Britain. This is a perfect location for visitors wanting to walk straight onto the hills.
