The Crown, in the village of Llangattock, once a very popular pub dating back to the 1890's, has been converted into a warm, comfortable, welcoming and immaculate cottage - attractively designed with many of the furnishings and fabrics by Designer Sarah Frost who happens to live locally. The views from the garden across to Llangattock Mountain and The Sugar Loaf invite guests to venture out and explore the great out doors, on foot, on a bike, in the car or on horse back. The village also offers easy access to Crickhowell with all it's attractions -restaurants, independant shops, pubs and coffee shops.

Sleeps 4 people in 2 bedrooms:

The entrance lobby has double doors so there is room for coats and boots and perhaps room to wipe down a wet dog. The galley style kitchen is easy to use and is well equipped with a gas hob and an electric cooker, microwave, under counter fridge and a separate freezer, dishwasher and a washing machine; the dining room has a long dining table and chairs - perfect for a dinner party or for just doing a jigsaw. I noticed a good supply of board games, jigsaws etc. A step down to the comfortable sitting room with the wood burning stove set in the stone fireplace ensures this room is always warm and cosy. There is a flat screen Freeview TV and DVD player with a selection of DVD's .

Up a flight of wooden stairs to

Bedroom 1: A kingsize bed in a very spacious bedroom with lovely views across the pretty cottage gardens and roof scapes to Llangattock Escarpment.

Bedroom 2: twin bedroom again has new beds and mattresses.

The bathroom is elegant and contemporary with an excellent shower over the bath, handbasin and toilet.

The back door leads out to a small court yard with garden table and chairs - perfect for a cup of coffee in the morning and to read the papers in the sunshine. Then up a couple of steps and down a little path to a "surprise secret garden" - a large safe and enclosed garden with a patio with garden furniture, lawn and flowers, perfect for visitors with children or dogs where they can play in compete safety. The woodshed is down here and offers safe lock up for three mountain bikes. There is a back gate to a cobbled lane that leads back to the village.

The Powys 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Upper Swansea Valley is an ideal location for those wishing to explore this area known as 'Waterfall Country',

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

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.


A small and peaceful village sits on the banks of the River Wye just four miles from the world-famous book town of Hay-on-Wye

"Beautiful, spacious cottage, great value in winter"

Well equiped and tastefully decorated cottage. The village is lovely and a very short walk from Crickhowell. It is the ideal location to start exploring the Brecons. The advertising actually understates how good this cottage is.
