Walk down the narrow enchanting cobbled lane where, in summer, wild strawberries, pink valerian and hollyhocks line the ancient stone walls to this lovely little terraced stone self-catering "quarryman's" cottage, a cosy retreat, probably dating from the 1800's. A delightful little holiday cottage in the charming riverside village of Llangattock, close to the Church of St Catwg, the earliest part of which dates from the 13th century and the cottage is within a couple of minutes walking distance of the three local pubs.
Sleeps 2 - 1 Double
The front door to the cottage is a painted stable door leading into the living area where there is a new sofa, dining table and chairs and the original open fireplace which burns wood or coal. The kitchen is newly fitted with cupboards, work tops, and a new electric oven. It also has a fridge (small ice box), microwave and a range of china and cooking equipment.
Up a flight of attractive but pretty steep spiral stairs to a light, fresh and clean feeling bedroom with a double bed with crisp white linen with a small newly fitted shower room with shower, handbasin and toilet.
A delightful little holiday cottage in the charming riverside village of Llangattock, close to the Church of St Cattwg, the earliest part dates from the 13th century and is within a couple of minutes walking distance of the three local pubs, The Three Horseshoes that offers a very good "Sunday Lunch" and The Vine Tree always a popular eating house. Or visit the welcoming Old Rectory which offers bar and restaurant meals or play a round of GOLF. Visitors can walk along the canal tow path of the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal and see the narrow boats and for keen walkers there are miles of open hillside and wild countryside to explore with the Sugar Loaf, Table Mountain, The Blorenge and Llangattock Mountain and Escarpment in the Black Mountains with Brecon Beacons beyond. Visit Big Pit and The World Heritage Site at Blaenavon or enjoy Crickhowell less than a mile through the water meadows and over the River Usk Bridge with its many interesting local small and independent shops, restaurants and galleries.
As the cottage is only a five minute walk from the canal and then good flat walking in both directions and a pretty 15 minute walk from Crickhowell, with its shops, cafes and information centre, it would be possible to do a "no car" holiday. The Owners can arrange for the local taxi firm to meet the train at Abergavenny (single journey approximately £15 - 20.00).
Abergavenny with the closest railway station is 7 miles and Brecon 14 miles.
