Located high in the Black Mountains above the villages of Crickhowell and Llangattock, with plenty of pubs and local coffee shops between them, there are plenty of water holes to quench your thirst after a day in the hills. In fact, Crickhowell was awarded '2018 High Street of the Year'! There is pony trekking and caving nearby too.  The famous book town of Hay-on-Wye is 30 minutes away, with international acclaim for its annual literary festival, there are independent second hand bookshops to browse.  Nearby attractions include Llangattock Escarpment which is well known for having some of the best caves in Europe, there are local guides available to help you explore.  Stroll along the lane to the Wern Riding Centre for a few hours in the saddle up on the hill.

This romantic bolthole for two is set on one level and offers an open-plan living space. Step into the dining area, which leads onto the comfortable lounge with soft furnishings where you can curl up and enjoy a film together on Sky TV, or simply relax with a hot cuppa. The Shaker-style kitchen is small yet perfectly formed - with everything you could need for your stay. Heading down the hallway you will find a contemporary style bathroom, with a lovely jacuzzi-style bath, power shower and WC. Further along you will find the king-size bedroom, an ideal space to retreat to at the end of the day with sumptuous bedding and fluffy towels supplied.

Our stay at Willow Cottage was very enjoyable. Although we were happy to do our own thing, the owners were on hand with help or advice of we wanted it. The cottage had all the facilities we needed, and is very tastefully furnished. The surrounding views and walks are stunning, yet conveniently close to Llangattock village and Crickhowell. It is a vRead moreery peaceful setting. Hide

Lovely comfortable cottage in a fabulously quiet location. Beautifully clean and well equipped with a very comfy bed! Fantastically positioned with walks from the door and access to many others. Loved Crickhowell. Would definitely recommend as long as you can live without internet and a good mobile reception. Not a problem for us.

This was a lovely cottage .. a real home from home experience . The approach to and from the cottage in the car is not for a nervous driver as it is a single track with blind bends with an extremely steep ratio. We had a lovely break .

I genuinely cannot fault Willow Cottage - the hosts are extremely kind and generous - and the cottage itself well-supplied with equipment. Dont expect too much in the way of wifi owing to the remote location but instead enjoy the beautiful clear night skies and walks on the Llangattock Escarpment. For our dog, the garden was fine. It has a small eaRead morerth area for toileting and is surrounded by a low chicken wire fence. The rest is laid to patio suitable for snoozes in sunnier weather. Hide

Ideal for a couple to explore Crickhowell area, with a beautiful walk in the hills behind the cottage. Host was very welcoming and the cottage very clean and well equipped. If you want peace and quite this is ideal surrounded by hills and farmland.
