Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
This cosy 3* cottage is located in a private cul-de-sac near the centre of the pretty town of Crickhowell, in the Usk Valley. The famous Bear Hotel is about 100 metres away. We have private parking and it takes about a minute to walk to the shops. The location is great for walkers and cyclists (both off and on-road) with some serious hill climbs locally. Secure bike storage. Private yard for motorcycles or your dog. Visit Wales Walkers and Cyclists accreditation.
If you are interested in a more relaxed break there are many attractions to visit within a reasonable distance and lots of short country walks you can start from the cottage. A comprehensive choice of maps and guidebooks are provided. The owners live nearby and are always available to advise.
The Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons are on the doorstep for those needing more challenging walks with a good choice of pubs, cafes and restaurants to refuel the visitor after a hard day in the hills.

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. We have "Walkers are Welcome" and "Cyclists are Welcome" accreditation.
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.

Thanks for taking the time to write a nice review of the cottage. The variable internet connection is, unfortunately, what happens in the countryside! I hope it didn't bother you too much.

Thanks for taking the time to review the cottage. You are quite right about the capricious internet but it's the same for me too. One of the troubles with rural reception. Very glad you enjoyed your stay.
