Crickhowells just a small town, but theres plenty to do. Its perfectly placed for fantastic walking and cycling, as well as outdoor activities at Llangorse Lake. Visit our What to do section for more information.
Head across the historic Crickhowell bridge, through the kissing gate and take the pleasant walk across the meadows to Llangattock Church. St. Catwgs Church was built in the 16th century, but its claimed that the current structure replaced a 12th century tower. Explore the interior and dont miss the gruesome village stocks and whipping post preserved here.
The castle is 3 miles up the road towards Brecon and is a classic moat and bailey example dating from 1150 with additions made in the 13th century. Tretower Court was recently refurbished and re-opened to the public and is thought to originally date from the 14th century and still boasts many fantastic examples of timberwork from that era as well as a delightful reconstructed 15th century garden. A trip to Tretower is a fantastic window into medieval life in the area.
Crickhowell is a small, picturesque town by day but there is a friendly, bustling atmosphere in the evenings.
