Enjoy breathtaking views of the Black Mountains from this romantic bolthole’s elevated position. Wander along country lanes and mountain tracks, taking in the peaceful sounds of nature. Despite the rural location, the popular villages of Llangattock and Crickhowell are only 3 miles away, with plenty of eateries and independent shops where you can find local produce to create delicious meals. On a sunny afternoon, fire up the BBQ for a spot of al fresco dining. This cheerful stone cottage, all set on one level, has been lovingly decorated with calming tones and warm woods throughout. Prepare romantic meals for two in the compact Shaker-style kitchen, which you can enjoy in the dining room with the door open on warm days. Relax in the lounge in the evenings, and put your favourite show on the TV. Alternatively, you can curl up with a book or chat and plan your next day out. Sink into the comfortable bed for a restful night’s sleep after a soak in the whirlpool bath. The enclosed terrace is perfect for admiring the mountain views with your beverage of choice. There is also convenient storage for mountain bikes. Head to Crickhowell for a morning coffee and an invigorating walk along the River Usk. Abergavenny is also within reach, just 9 miles away, with its market offering fresh and local produce. Keen walkers can find everything they need at their doorstep, with the Llangattock Escarpment less than a mile away offering fascinating strolls through its 18th-century quarries and caves. The popular mountains of Blorenge and Sugar Loaf are both less than 12 miles away and boast incredible views from their summits.

Lovely comfortable cottage in a fabulously quiet location. Beautifully clean and well equipped with a very comfy bed! Fantastically positioned with walks from the door and access to many others. Loved Crickhowell. Would definitely recommend as long as you can live without internet and a good mobile reception. Not a problem for us.

This was a lovely cottage .. a real home from home experience . The approach to and from the cottage in the car is not for a nervous driver as it is a single track with blind bends with an extremely steep ratio. We had a lovely break .

I genuinely cannot fault Willow Cottage - the hosts are extremely kind and generous - and the cottage itself well-supplied with equipment. Dont expect too much in the way of wifi owing to the remote location but instead enjoy the beautiful clear night skies and walks on the Llangattock Escarpment. For our dog, the garden was fine. It has a small eaRead morerth area for toileting and is surrounded by a low chicken wire fence. The rest is laid to patio suitable for snoozes in sunnier weather. Hide

Ideal for a couple to explore Crickhowell area, with a beautiful walk in the hills behind the cottage. Host was very welcoming and the cottage very clean and well equipped. If you want peace and quite this is ideal surrounded by hills and farmland.

Once the single track road is navigated following the easy directions you arrive at Willow Cottage. The peace and quiet is lovely along with the views. Our host was very friendly and helpful. It was a great base for discovering the Brecon Beacons and we were always happy to get into a really comfortable bed after a day of walking.
