Cross Roads Cottage (CROSS)
from £48 /night help
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Cross Roads Cottage is a quaint cottage situated in the village of Gilwern where The Monmouth and Brecon canal passes through the village with the pretty canal boats, a great place to explore the Welsh culture with The World Heritage Site at Blaenavon, The Big Pit, Blorenge Mountain and The Black Mountains and of course the Brecon Beacons National Park. The village has a small general store, post office in the garage, chemist, hairdresser and a fabulous fish and chip shop (closed Mondays) and 3 pubs. A few miles further along the canal is the quiet market town of Crickhowell with its stone arched bridge, trout and salmon fishing and inns with welcoming log fires and good ales. Abergavenny is just a couple of miles away, it is a bustling town with weekly Farmer's Market where you can buy organic and local produce, and a flourishing and interesting Food Festival held in September. The town is traditionally called the 'Gateway to Wales'.
