"Beautiful and quirky house, great for a family break."
We were in Crickhowell for a family wedding and this was a perfect place to stay. Well equipped and comfortable, in a really interesting and unusual development. We had breakfast in the garden at the table and the views were beautiful. Highly recommend.

"Pretty well perfect"
Here is a very comfortable house. We were a party of 6 adults and 2 children of 4 and 2 years old. and there was plenty of room. The bathroom is large and the master bedroom has an ensuite loo and shower room and there is a shower and loo downstairs. The lounge is generous and the dining room easily accommodates 8 people. There is a breakfast table for six in the kitchen/breakfast area. There was a welcome pack on our arrival with tea/coffee and biscuits. The larder cupboard had some basic items in it and there is ample crockery, cutlery and glassware. Everywhere has a classy feel to posh soaps and fluffy towels in the bathrooms. Rooms are simply but nicely furnished. The house is in easy walking distance of Crickhowell with good shops and pubs and reastaurants. The garden surrounding the property is pretty and has a table and chairs to sit out and enjoy a drink and a meal in the garden if the Welsh weather will allow!

Myself, my Daughter, mother and father in-law had a wonderful short break here at Chestnut house, it is certainly the best house we have stayed at in Crickhowell and we have been coming for many years,it has plenty of space and my daughter really enjoyed the ping pong table at the top of the house.
The house was only a short walk to the center of Crickhowell which we enjoyed taking a stroll most days to the Bear hotel for a meal.
I think we will be coming back a lot in the future, and recommending it to our friends.

"Superb house, amazing location"
We had a wonderful holiday in this beautiful house, immaculately clean, well equipped, it realy felt like a home from home. There were fantastic mountain views from almost every window, a delightful sunny garden, so peaceful and relaxing, all surrounded by cleverly planted shrubs and trees. Crickhowell was amazing - butchers, a bakery, lots of interesting shops, excellent quality fruit & veg etc and two good places to eat, the Bear and the Dolphin. Nantyffin Cider Mill Inn just outside the village was excellent. With the Brecon Beacons on the doorstep it is a great location and we cannot wait to return.

"Will definitely be doing this again"
Comfortable, clean and absolutely perfect for a group of friends (as we were) or a large family. Settled in between the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains you are spoilt for choice when it comes to walks, drives and general sight seeing/scenery.
Crickhowell is delightful however Abergavenny and Brecon are also both worth a visit and offer plenty of dining options.
Thank you for letting us your holiday home - it made ours!!

"Beautiful house in a lovely setting"
I recently celebrated my birthday at Chestnut House and I couldn't have asked for a better few days!
The house is beautifully decorated and extremely well equipped. It contains everything you need and more. It is very spacious and comfortable – it really was a home from home!
The location is perfect too: situated at the foot of Table Mountain, but with good access to local amenities. The views from the windows are amazing!
I would thoroughly recommend a stay at Chestnut House.
