This Grade 2* listed property, close to the English border, is ideally positioned for exploring the rugged beauty of the Brecon Beacons National Park and is a luxurious cottage perfect for a getaway.

Tucked away in the peaceful village of Llanvihangel Crucorney, close to the English border, this stunning Grade 2* listed cottage enjoys an enviable location in the eastern fringes of the Brecon Beacons, making it an ideal place to stay for keen walkers. The market town of Abergavenny lies just five miles away, with a market held three times a week as well as a wealth of independent shops, restaurants and pubs to choose from. Also a short distance away lies the 13th century ruins of Llanthony Priory, a gorgeous and historic beauty spot. Crickhowell is another small nearby town, with a gallery and some interesting shops to browse.

Retaining several period features throughout, the property’s oak beams, wood panelling, stone steps and fireplaces and quality furnishings really show off the cottage’s 16th century origins. Upon entering the property, you’ll enter into the slate-floored entrance hall, with a study area and lounge found to your left. The study is the perfect area to hide away for any work, and takes you through to the large lounge, a welcoming relaxation space. Comfortable seating is arranged around the warming wood burner (initial supply of logs provided), while there is also a TV/DVD, iPod dock and small collection of DVDs and games to keep everyone entertained. The kitchen/diner is reached from the hallway on the right-hand side and is equipped with plenty of modern features yet still retains a traditional feel. Cook up a special meal on the Aga, or for something quick, there is a microwave. A dishwasher, fridge/freezer and a washer/dryer make this property a real home from home. The feature wooden dining table can be found in the middle of the room and can comfortably seat six guests. There is also a toilet on the ground floor in the utility area. Upstairs, you’ll find three stunning double bedrooms, as well as a fourth small bedroom, ideal for a child, with a double bed, which can be made up on request. One bedroom also has an additional day bed, perfect for a small child to sleep on. Another bedroom boasts its own en-suite shower room with toilet, and can be accessed by a stone staircase leading up from the lounge. This bedroom is separated from the neighbouring bedroom by wooden panels walls, and therefore noise may travel between these rooms. There is also a bathroom on the first floor, with a freestanding bath and toilet, as well as a separate shower room further down the hallway.

To the side of the house, you’ll find the private garden – a large lawn area which enjoys the sunshine for much of the day. Slightly further from the house behind a hedge is a more secluded and shaded outdoor space. Dine al fresco with the BBQ and set of table and chairs – additional chairs can also be found in a stone shed at the bottom of the garden. The shed also contains table tennis and other garden games that guests are free to use, including boules and croquet. Parking for 3 cars is available on the driveway in front of the property.

We (me, husband, daughter (16) and son (13) spent 5 nights at Millbrook in February. The weather was cold but the cottage was warm and cosy. We lit a fire in the main sitting room each night and the Aga in the kitchen made it very comfortable place to be! It is a beautifully preserved 16th Century house with many lovely features which make it increRead moredibly atmospheric. Beautiful landscape all around even when it's raining and you can hear the water running in the river just across the way. Hide

Millbroook was very clean, as quirky as we expected from the description fun to stay in and the log burning fire was wonderful. Excellent location for local walks and for popping into the local town.

The house was renovated beautifully and felt very homely from the moment we arrived. It provided a relaxing atmosphere for our half-term week away with our children. They loved the garden space and the bicycle hire on our last day was particularly successful.

Had a really good time at Millbrook. Loved the Aga and the space. Also being able to walk on footpaths easily accessible from the house. In addition having the table tennis was brilliant we are hooked!
