About The Tower
This castellated stone Elizabethan Tower is a Grade 11 Listed Building; it is the end wing of the main house Twr Mihangel believed to date from the 16th century, on the edge of the medieval village of Llanfihangel Crucorney. The Tower has now been carefully and lovingly restored to a beautiful, luxurious and romantic Tower; it is set in mature walled gardens with a private part of the garden for visitors with a Gazebo and a BBQ. On Arrival visitors are greeted with fresh flowers and wine. This is a perfect place for a romantic retreat, an Anniversary, a Honeymoon or just a holiday. The nearby Skirrid Inn, is the oldest and supposedly the most haunted Inn in Wales is only a hundred yards or so from the house, as is the village shop and the garage. From the property there is excellent walking, with Offa's Dyke footpath close by, the Black Mountains and Llantony Valley through to Capel-y-Ffin and Hay-on-Wye, pony trekking, mountain biking and a nearby trout farm.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Tower in Llanfihangel-Crucorney and visiting the Brecon Beacons.
Cottage was excellent, top notch, and the owners were friendly and accommodating.
''Perfect Stay” I can only echo the comments of the previous reviewer. This is a fantastic place to stay, with all you could need for a holiday break. We took advantage of the warm weather to sip drinks in the garden and even breakfast al fresco. As there were no guests arriving on our leaving day, the owners kindly let us stay beyond the standard departure time too. The Tower is an ideal base for walking without needing the car to drive out - Skirrid, Sugar Loaf, Waun Fach, Offas Dyke to Hay-on-Wye, Llanthony Priory, White Castle - all in reach subject to ambition & capability! The Skirrid Inn on the doorstep is also excellent for character, service, beer & food.
My partner and I stayed for a long weekend in November 2013 and we both have nothing but amazing things to say about our stay!! Firstly, the Tower itself is simply divine! So quaint, gorgeous, traditional and welcoming. The log fire is beautiful and the bathroom and 4 poster bed is immense! Everything you could think of was provided - from milk and tea, to a hairdryer, towels, candles and logs for the fire! The owner, Gaynor James and her husband were so welcoming and we even had a bottle of bubbly and breakfast treats laid out for us on arrival! There are loads to do nearby - climbing Mount Skirrid, shops and local markets and of course the gorgeous scenic landscape for romantic walks and picnics. The Walnut Tree, a Michelin star restaurant is a short drive away and we had a delicious meal here and the Skirrid Inn Pub opposite the Tower is great for pre drinks in a haunted venue. All in all we could not recommend this place highly enough - please do visit - you won't be disappointed.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Tower. The booking process was fine, we appreciated the detailed navigating instructions and everything went very smoothly. The owners were great, took the time to show us around and say hello when they saw us but were not at all intrusive. The Tower was far better than we had expected, beautifully furnished and spacious. One of those places you don't want others to know about in case it becomes booked up all the time.
Spectacular mountain scenery, a bustling market town and foods galore – Abergavenny has all the ingredients for a great holiday. We've got forty wonderful holiday cottages in Abergavenny and in the beautiful surrounding villages and countryside.
