Ash Cottage has everything you need for a relaxing stay in the Brecon Beacons. The cottage is fully equiped and is perfect for you if you have dogs as there are flagstone floors for those muddy paws after a days walking and it has a great little enclosed garden.
Walks from the doorstep onto the Beacons or take a walk along the canal and have lunch in Crickhowell.
Two great village pubs, the locals are very welcoming.
Will definately be making a ruturn visit.
