A traditional Welsh farmhouse with some of the most breathtaking and magnificent panoramic of all the properties on our books - the views are over The Sugar Loaf and Table Mountains, The Blorenge and across to The Black Mountains and The Brecon Beacons and below Crickhowell and Abergavenny. This is a perfect place for a large family to be able to comfortably stay together with a large garden, surrounded by fields and open hillside and happy to accept well behaved pets. Great walks directly from the door and again perfect for mountain bikes; this is a very popular area for all other types of mountain activity with climbers on The Escarpment and cavers using the nearby caves. This is also a very useful place to stay if you wish to visit The South Wales Valleys with a lane straight over the mountain to Brynmawr and The Heads of The Valleys Road.

The dining room, also with oak beams, has a large and rather fine dining table and chairs seating 8 and a further woodburning stove.

Steeped in history
Outside this old traditional sixteenth century farmhouse, just a few steps from the kitchen door there is an warm and sunny stone terrace with BBQ and stone table and bench. We sat there during the spring sunshine having a coffee and admiring the panoramic view; it was completely quiet and peaceful except for the birds were singing and the new lambs on the hillside behind chasing around. The enclosed garden has a lawn and again wonderful views all around and over the surrounding fields. There is an old bridle way passing the front of the farmhouse with the occasional walker or farmer on his tractor but otherwise it is completely peaceful; and quiet. The track was originally used by the quarrymen and their mules in the 18th and 19th Centuries taking stone from the Llangattock Quarry and Escarpment just above the house down the mountain the to the waiting canal barges in the valley below.
Phenomenal Panoramic Views
A magnificent 16th Century stone farmhouse nestling under the brow of Llangattock Escarpment with phenomenal panoramic views over The Sugar Loaf Mountain, The Black Mountains, the attractive small village of Crickhowell and the patchwork of fields and valleys below. The farmhouse is reached along an old tram road (probably a four wheel drive would be advisable in snowy weather conditions). This is the perfect secluded location for a quiet family re-union or a special birthday party for a group of discerning friends. Just above on the the hillside is the SSSI Site of Special Scientific Interest with the resident Perigrine Falcons, Red Kites and many other species of birds and flora.
