Description

This castellated stone Elizabethan Tower is a Grade 11 Listed Building; it is the end wing of the main house Twr Mihangel believed to date from the 16th century, on the edge of the medieval village of Llanfihangel Crucorney. The Tower has now been carefully and lovingly restored to a beautiful, luxurious and romantic Tower; it is set in mature walled gardens with a private part of the garden for visitors with a Gazebo and a BBQ. On Arrival visitors are greeted with fresh flowers and wine. This is a perfect place for a romantic retreat, an Anniversary, a Honeymoon or just a holiday. The nearby Skirrid Inn, is the oldest and supposedly the most haunted Inn in Wales is only a hundred yards or so from the house, as is the village shop and the garage. From the property there is excellent walking, with Offa's Dyke footpath close by, the Black Mountains and Llantony Valley through to Capel-y-Ffin and Hay-on-Wye, pony trekking, mountain biking and a nearby trout farm.<br><br>Accommodation<br><br>Sleeps

Location description from owner

The South Wales region

Brecon is centrally positioned in the National Park and is a very popular base for walkers, mountain bikers and those who just enjoy being within the beautiful surrounding countryside with breathtaking views. The cathedral town boasts two museums - The Welsh Borderer's Museum and the Brecon Cathedral along with a shop and cafe. The bustling town centre is quaint with many individual shops and cafes. There is an annual world renowned Jazz Festival held in the town during August.<br><br>Crickhowell is a small, pretty and sheltered Georgian market town set between the lower slopes of Table Mountain and the backdrop of Llangattock Mountain with its great limestone crags. The River Usk, renowned for the good trout and salmon fishing, flows past spanned by an interesting buttressed bridge with twelve arches facing downstream and thirteen arches facing upstream. There are many excellent walks in the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons and horse riding, fishing, and canoeing can all be arranged locally.<br><br>Abergavenny is a bustling market town with a large covered outdoor market and a busy cattle market; there are ample local producers, craft and antique markets and every September the famous Abergavenny Food Festival brings together a wealth of local food producers, celebrity chefs and an enthusiastic food loving audience. This area remains a favourite base for walkers, cyclists, para-gliders, fishermen and canal enthusiasts, and there are many outdoor activity providers.<br><br>Hay-on-Wye is a popular market town on the River Wye, sitting on the border between England and Wales, at the foot of The Black Mountains. Overlooked by the fascinating 11thc. Castle, the town has a wealth of interesting old buildings and the "largest second-hand bookshop in the world" in the old cinema- one of the 30 major antiquarian bookshops, each with their own speciality. Hay-on-Wye hosts the world famous Literary Festival.<br><br>Builth Wells in the Mid Wales countryside is varied with magnificent great reservoirs using the natural shape of the landscape - now established over many years and a natural habitat for all kinds of wildlife and flora. There are great expanses of open countryside where the Red Kite (which can be viewed at close proximity in several Red Kite Centres), buzzard, kestrel and sparrow hawks wheel and hover overhead.<br><br>The Upper Swansea Valley is an ideal location for those wishing to explore this area known as 'Waterfall Country',<br><br>Monmouth takes its name from the mouth of the Monnow River, which flows into the River Wye just South of the town. Monmouth is a bustling market town with many shops and supermarkets. The pubs and restaurants provide good food. All types of outdoor activities are available, there is excellent fishing on the River Monnow and the River Wye; golf is nearby at the Rolls of Monmouth; Hot Air Ballooning at nearby Raglan and pony trekking in the area; excellent walking in the Wye Valley and the Royal Forest of Dean, exploring the Welsh Borders and Offa's Dyke Path<br><br>On the western side of the Brecon Beacons lie the old market towns of Llandeilo and Llandovery. Both are charming market towns with excellent local shops and information centres, guiding people to the numerous local places of interest such as Carreg Cennen Castle.
