Holiday Rental House
This cosy 3* cottage is located in a private cul-de-sac near the centre of the pretty town of Crickhowell, in the Usk Valley. The famous Bear Hotel is about 100 metres away. We have private parking and it takes about a minute to walk to the shops. The location is great for walkers and cyclists (both off and on-road) with some serious hill climbs locally. Secure bike storage. Private yard for motorcycles or your dog. Visit Wales Walkers and Cyclists accreditation. If you are interested in a more relaxed break there are many attractions to visit within a reasonable distance and lots of short country walks you can start from the cottage. A comprehensive choice of maps and guidebooks are provided. The owners live nearby and are always available to advise.

The Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons are on the doorstep for those needing more challenging walks with a good choice of pubs, cafes and restaurants to refuel the visitor after a hard day in the hills. PLEASE IGNORE NIGHTLY PRICES, WE DON'T DO SINGLE NIGHTS but cannot put zero in the box! Please note we only take whole week bookings in peak season, even if you're staying for five days.More

The cottage is in a great location for outdoors-minded people, and the owner, who lives next door, happens to own an outdoor shop in Crickhowell if you need anything. Don't expect the Ritz, this cottage has a lived-in look which is quite cosy in the...More

About the neighbourhood
Crickhowell, with it's castle. is located in the central part of the lovely Usk valley, overlooked by the ancient hillfort of Crucywel, known in english as Table Mountain. The town lies between the Black Mountains to the north and Mynydd Llangattock to the south. The very picturesque Monmouth and Brecon canal contours to the south of the town in an elevated position. There is an abundance of walking paths for all abilities from the town together with more routes in the Brecon Beacons, a short distance to the west. Crickhowell has recently gained the status of a 'Walkers are Welcome' town. Fishing and golf are available nearby. All of Crickhowell's shops, hotels and pubs are independents, for a small town there is a surprisingly large and interesting selection with great places to eat and...
How to get there
With the cottage located close to the town centre and the start of many walks and cycle rides a car isn't strictly necessary unless you wish to visit attractions further away.
