Great cottage for views and lovely walks in the area. However, the walk suggested from the cottage down to the river, is not suitable for very large dogs as the gap next to the stile is very narrow. This shouldnt be a problem for most though (our dog is in the giant breed category). Garden totally secure. Very much enjoyed our stay.

Perfect for us and our dog for a relaxing week. The views are beautiful and it is very quiet and very dark at night. The cottage is in the grounds of the big house and the caretakers cottage is also nearby so it isnt isolated but we werent disturbed at all.

The garden was secure enough for our chunky staffie but I suspect a determined escape artist could break out fairly easily. Hide

We had a lovely Holliday here, the caretaker is very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the house was not very clean. The cushions on the sofa where a little bit smelly so we washed them. The shower was cleanish, the curtains where grey and lots of dead flys. The weather was absolutely lovely and about 30 degrees so the house gets quite warm. The Read moreshower can only set to hot, hotter and hell so please fix that. The bed is horrible not any comfort at all and small. Hide

This really is a very nice holiday cottage in lovely surroundings and very quiet and peaceful. The owners need to address some minor issues but none of these would not deter us from going again. Crickhowell is a great little town, but to walk in, you must take the footpath by the river, turn right on the main road and the entrance is about 100m on Read morethe left. All the pubs have very nice real ale. We did a very enjoyable walk from the 'Cracking Walks' book in the cottage. The weather was very kind! Hide

Not as totally private as you may hope as the caretaker as nice has he may be kept walking around the edge of the garden. No umbrella for shade as a south facing garden. If you are a dog owner there is no walks from the property. It always involves a drive. Although fantastic walks out of Crickhowell in every direction.
