This former toll house, full of character, is situated on the banks of the River Usk and is the perfect choice for a couple or friends looking for an active holiday, with up to two dogs welcome. Crickhowell's main street is less than a mile away and this busy village offers a range of eateries and a baker and butcher, where you can buy delicious local produce. Walkers can leave the car as there are routes that take you into the national park and up some of the local peaks, including the dramatic Table Mountain.

Step into this magnificent reverse-level property and enjoy an inviting space that will make you feel instantly at ease. Relaxing hues, spacious rooms and thoughtful details make this a real home from home. On the ground floor, you'll find two lovely bedrooms - a super king-size with river views and a twin with countryside views - as well as a contemporary bathroom. Up the stairs is a spacious open-plan living area where you'll notice the character of the original features, including exposed beams and toll-house windows overlooking the river. A cosy corner sofa faces a Smart TV, where you can snuggle up after a day of outdoor activities, and a traditional wood burner ensures that you stay warm on chilly evenings. The open-plan kitchen makes meal preparation a breeze, and a seat at the large wooden table completes the offerings of this stylish property.

Visit the World Heritage Site of Blaenavon, home to the Big Pit National Coal Museum (10.5 miles). If you prefer a walk in the countryside, head to Pen-Y-Fan Country Park (17.5 miles), Sugar Loaf (9 miles) or Brecon Beacons National Park (20 miles). Alternatively, relax with a boat trip on the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal (3.5 miles). For foodies, there are many restaurants nearby offering menus featuring seasonal local produce, or you can time your visit to coincide with the Abergavenny Food Festival (6.5 miles).

Beautiful cottage, well equipped and the host was a dream to work with, so easy and clear. Beautiful to watch the river, lovely fire and relax. The bed is super comfy and even though its a toll house its a very quiet room and low traffic noise. So much to do in the area from climbs, runs, rides and hikes to mooching around the lovely town of CrickhRead moreowell. Hide

A beautiful cottage in a fabulous location. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable with a wonderful comfy bed. Even though it was right on the road, I did not hear the traffic at all. There are plenty of walks close by and lovely independent shops just up the hill, along with lovely pubs. I loved staying there so much that I did not want to lRead moreeave and I am pining for it the day after getting home. The owner is very friendly and helpful and I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Hide

Beautiful location, great views. a well presented feel roomy and ycosy. Great walks available from the door, gentle or more taxing. Friendly village, great local stores locally owned. A great choice of restaurants in the village from casual to more formal, or a choice of takeaways available. Close proximity to many attractions, we enjoyed Horse ridRead moreing, boating along the canal, Alpaca walking, scenic railway, zip lining, kayaking and much more. Would highly recommend. Hide
