A Scandinavian-inspired lodge tucked in the foothills of the Sugar Loaf Mountain, boasting panoramic views and easy access to an abundance of scenic walks.
Discover the beautiful landscape and exciting trails throughout the Usk Valley from this unique vantage point on the slopes of the Sugar Loaf Mountain. Encircled by mature gardens, this cosy property sleeps four guests along with one dog and is perfectly located for scenic walks and leisurely evening trips to the well-renowned pub half a mile away. It is an ideal choice for couples, small families and friendship groups alike, especially if you are keen to tantalise your taste buds with local delicacies at one of two Michelin-starred restaurants or the array of gastropubs that are also easily reached within 9 miles.
Homely and comforting throughout and accessed via a gently stepped path, your humble abode has character beams and vaulted ceilings, featuring a country-cottage decor and comfortable furniture. Relax in the lounge with snacks aplenty, and rustle up a feast in the pretty kitchen ready to dine in style. You’ll have a choice of sleeping quarters at bedtime, whether you opt for the elegant double bedroom or the handy twin with zip-and-link beds that can be converted into a continental double or king-size bed on request. Completing the property is a useful shower room, and there are shared laundry facilities on-site. On balmy summer evenings, you can settle down on the terrace in the hot tub with a glass of wine in hand, or explore the shared gardens looking out for the resident pheasants that frequent the patch of woodland.
Bring your camera and walking boots and prepare to take in the scenery from your doorstep, scaling the mountain or wandering down into the valley itself. The market town of Crickhowell is a short 2 miles drive away offering a plethora of independent shops, inns and interesting historical landmarks including a motte and bailey castle and a pretty walk leading to an Iron Age fort at the top of Crug Hywel.
