One-Off Feature

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!

General Info

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.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

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.
