"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!

"Fantastic House"

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.
Many thanks
Jeanette, Emily, Cynthia and Terry.
