Our cottage is a fanastic base for families, couples and friends to explore the Brecon Beacons National Park. We have taken great care to furnish the property beautifully so that your stay is really enjoyable and comfortable. There are two bedrooms sleeping 4/5 -one double and one twin.The twin room is large and has an additional sofa bed for extra guests. All beds have quality mattresses and bedding so you can get the best sleep after a day's walking or exploring. The kitchen is well equipped, so if cooking is your thing, you will have everything you need like decent pans, sharp knives and kitchen scales.
There are maps, guidebooks and a backpack that you use. There are even survival bags - always worth carrying with you if you are heading to the hills, especially if it is cold or with children in tow! The cottage has wifi, TV, DVD player and bluetooth speaker. For a fun night in there's monopoly, chess, jenga, snakes and ladders, perudo and more.
The cottage is situated in the village of Llangattock, next to St Catwgs Church (dates back to 17C). Crickhowell and the river Usk is a short and picturesque walk away, via a footpath and through a meadow with views of Crickhowell and Table Mountain. Crickhowell has a lot to offer visitors, including independent shops (butchers, bakers, outdoor equiment, gift shops,clothing, hardware, furniture) and restaurants, cafe's and pubs (The Bear, Bistro 21, Pavlova, The Castle Inn, Beaufort Hotel are our recommendations). There is a really good tourist information office with art gallery. http://www.visitcrickhowell.co.uk/

Why take the car when you don't need to? You can end your walk at one of the lovely pubs in Crickhowell for a well deserved drink!
