The Powys/Brecon Beacons region
This little bit of Wales, not too far from London and the south-east, is a super place to live and stay. It is out in the country but not too far from the city. The pace of life is a little slower and people speak to you in the street.
There are brilliant routes for bikers, cyclists (both mountain and road) and walkers at all grades. The Welsh Border region has beautiful scenery, a proliferation of castles, industrial archeology sites and many visitor attractions within easy driving distance on our relatively quiet roads.
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. There is an abundance of walking paths for all abilities from the town together with more routes in the Brecon Beacons, a short distance to the west. Crickhowell has recently gained the status of a "Walkers are Welcome" town. Fishing and golf are available nearby.
All of Crickhowell's shops, hotels and pubs are independents, for a small town there is a surprisingly large and interesting selection with great places to eat and drink.
Crickhowell is also the home of the GreenMan music festival, held at the nearby Glanusk Estate each August.
