A remote four bedroom cottage near Crickhowell in Wales in a simply stunning rural location on a lane leading up to Llangattock Mountain, yet just a few minutes’ drive from the town with its shops and restaurants. The perfect place for a group of family or friends with a mutual love of the great outdoors!
The cottage has panoramic views over The Usk Valley to Crickhowell down in the valley, with views of Table Mountain and Sugar Loaf Mountain. Right behind the cottage is Llangattock Escarpment Craig-y-Cilau, which is a site of special scientific interest with resident rare Peregrine Falcons amongst other protected flora and fauna. Although in the heart of nature, the cottage is just a few minutes drive from Crickhowell with its independent shops and restaurants.
Crickhowell is a picturesque town nestling in the beautiful Usk Valley and lying to the south of the Black Mountains, the eastern range of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The cottage is a short drive to the independent shops and many good pubs and restaurants in Crickhowell. It's a short walk down to the River Usk and the waterside meadows, and there are footpaths in and around Crickhowell and neighbouring Llangattock. Close by are the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons, as well as the River Usk. Outdoor enthusiasts will love the fishing, canoeing, climbing, golf, hang gliding, horse riding and mountain biking. The cottage is near the most famous caves systems in South Wales Ogof-y-Daren Cilau and Ogof Agen Allwedd but access is only with permission and a key. This is also a very popular area for climbers in the old quarry again further up the hillside.
This cottage certainly feels remote but is actually only 1.5 miles from Llangattock and 2 miles from Crickhowell, Abergavenny (nearest station) 8 miles, Brecon 16 miles, Hay-on-Wye 21 miles.
The cottage can sleep up to 8 people in 4 bedrooms. Downstairs a large and well equipped kitchen diner with all the appliances and utensils, including an electric rangemaster cooker and a dishwasher. There’s a separate and spacious utility and boot room with an adjoining separate downstairs cloakroom. There is a cosy sitting room with sofas and chairs, and a wood burner in the original fireplace. Exposed stone walls, original oak beams and wonderful views from the windows. There’s underfloor heating throughout. There is sky TV with the full sports and movie package, wifi, and portable bluetooth boom bar. Upstairs are four bedrooms - a king sized master bedroom with en suit bathroom and patio doors to a rear terrace with wonderful views, a further king size room, a twin room, and a superking with exceptional views. There is a separate family bathroom.
The house sits in two and a half acres of garden and wildflower meadow - the garden itself is well fenced to keep dogs in and sheep out! There is garden furniture, BBQ and a large summer house with full sized pool table, table tennis table and table football. Ample parking for 4 cars - the road up from Llangattock can be very difficult in severe weather conditions as it is very steep, a 4-wheel drive is advised in winter. There is a flatter access road from the 'Heads of the Valley' road.
Bedlinen, towels, electricity, oil central heating and logs for the wood burner included. Plenty of storage for bikes. Cot, high chair and fold up spare bed. Two dogs welcome. Check in from 4pm. Refundable security deposit of £250 payable two weeks before arrival.
