Whitewalls was originally a terrace of traditional of Quarrymen's cottages with the backdrop of Llangattock Escarpment rising up on the mountainside behind - always popular with climbers and walkers. Whitewalls is now a substantial luxurious family house with the most magnificent panoramic views; it is set in a large grassed garden for children, perfect to play with a further enclosed walled terrace behind. In the front of the cottage there is a sunny stone terrace, great for BBQs and watching the sunset with the most fantastic views over to the Sugar Loaf Mountain and The Black Mountains. Whitewalls is a five minute drive (a pretty steep road in places) down to Crickhowell and Llangattock with two pubs serving food in Llangattock and lots more in Crickhowell. From the house there is immediate access onto the open hillside for walkers and mountain bikes can be hired locally. The road up from the village is very steep and winds around the hillside and then over the mountain eventually reaching Brynmawr and The Heads of The Valleys Road, Abergavenny and beyond. A perfect spot for to stay to enjoy the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains or to visit Cardiff and the South Wales Valleys which are less than an hour drive.
