A spacious and clever conversion
The ground floor of Hengwaithdy House has been cleverly converted into a spacious apartment with it's own access and French doors on to a patio garden. This beautifully formed property combines oak-floored, open plan living areas with an intimate wood panelled cellar bedroom and sleeps 2. The large windows provide wonderful views over the garden to Crickhowell and the Sugar Loaf Mountain beyond.
Canal-side living - Hengwaithdy House is in a delightful setting, just a minute's walk from the Brecon and Monmouthshire canal. Stroll along the banks and watch the comings and goings on the canal or feed the ducks and swans. Make sure that you take a boat ride to see the canal from a completely different perspective - the tow-paths provide miles of easy cycling too.
Crickhowell - a short walk through the meadow - A comfortable half mile stroll takes you through picturesque fields to the famous Crickhowell Bridge over the River Usk. The bridge is well known for its mysterious arches, 12 when viewed from one side and 13 when facing upstream. Follow the narrow street, lined with pretty Georgian terraces up to the market town's centre. You will be spoilt for choice in Crickhowell whether choosing somewhere to eat, buying local produce or browsing for clothes or gifts.
Llangattock Escarpment - The escarpment which rises up behind Hengwaithdy House is a result of 18th and 19th century quarrying but today nature has largely reclaimed the landscape as its own. The quarrying process effectively sectioned the cliff face and in doing so uncovered an entrance to one of the longest cave systems in the U.K. with over 12 miles of passages. Not surprisingly Llangattock Escarpment is a popular destination for cavers from across Europe and the Western section of the escarpment has now be designated as the Craig Y Cilau National Nature Reserve.
