Lovely cottage in a beautiful location with stunning views across the valley to Crickhowell. You literally walk out the door onto the canal path and the many walks into the hills. The cottage is spacious and very well equipped with everything you could need. Pretty rear garden that made a pleasant spot to drink our morning coffee.

Lovely cottage in a great location with fantastic views. Ideally placed for walks along the canal, into Crickhowell and the hills beyond. The welcome box of local produce and local information was also appreciated.

A great cottage, Lovely space upstairs with fabulous views, comfy sofas, a great big bath which was good after a day walking & comfy beds. . The cottage was spotlessly clean. It was great to be able to take long walks without having to take the car. We only used the car to arrive & depart. There are lots of lovely walks from the house.We would defiRead morenitely go back to the cottage if we wanted to do more walks round Crickhowell. I would recommend the Vine Tree restaurant, We had 2 lovely meals there Hide

Well appointed, cozy cottage with outstanding views, set amongst beautiful countryside. Only a short (15 min) walk into Crickhowell although, be warned, the walk home ends with a steep climb up hill. Worth it though for the views!

Hosts most generous with their welcome gifts (including for the dog!) & were exceedingly helpful with the problem we had with our injured dog having trouble with the stairs. Couldn't have been kinder. Cottage had beautiful views, ideally situated with walks along canal & down into Crickhowell & blissfully quiet.

We took our bikes and our kayak and made the most of the canal/ towpath outside the door. Our welcome hamper was delicious and added a touch of luxury to our arrival. So much to explore locally we would love to come back as the cottage is a wonderful retreat from day to day life.
