This romantic Elizabethan "fairy tale" stone tower is the end wing of the Grade II Twr Mihangel on the edge of the medieval village of Llanfihangel Crucorney. The Tower has been carefully and lovingly restored to a beautiful, luxurious and romantic hideaway for 2 set in mature walled gardens where guests can relax in their own private space with use of a gazebo and BBQ.

Only 35 minutes from Severn Bridge this is the perfect place for a weekend getaway, a romantic retreat, an anniversary or even a honeymoon.   There are 6 great country pubs all within a short distance and 2 Michellin starred restaurants for fine dining.  The Offa's Dyke footpath passes close by, Skirrid Fawr, the Sugarloaf, the Black Mountains and Llantony Valley leading to Capel-y-Ffin and Hay-on-Wye all offer fantastic hill-walking and there is plenty of opportunity for pony trekking along the Llanthony valley. The superb Black Mountain Cycle Centre is only 10 minutes drive, designed with a great down hill and a freeride track.  The nearby Skirrid Mountain Inn, a great old inn was reputedly the rallying point for Owain Glyndwr before leading his Welsh rebels at Pontrilas in the fifteenth century.  The village shop and the garage are next door to Skirrid Inn (we recommend the victoria sponge baked by local lady which is one of the lightest we have ever tasted - one slice just wasn't enough but we had to share around the office team!). 

Accomodation - wine and flowers are provided on arrival.

Sleeps 2, 1 bedroom.

    Customer Comments

    • We were greeted warmly by the owner and given a tour. The dining table was already set for tea with 2 hunks of delicious, homemade walnut cake: A bottle of Cava awaited us on the sideboard in the lounge and the fire was laid in readiness for a beautiful roaring blaze. There was even a bottle of fresh milk in the fridge! In self-catering places I stayed before, I've needed to take all cleaning equipment, linens and towels. At The Tower however, everything you could possibly ever need was already there. Incredible!! We were invited to discover the 1st storey on our own and to explore the gardens. Everywhere took our breath away! We were left open mouthed at the sumptuous bathroom, the fabulous bedroom and the grand, yet entirely comfortable lounge. As for the gardens, our discovery of the garden hideaway left us breathless with excitement. It's a perfect place to sit and watch the wildlife and appreciate the beautiful planting scheme. We were reluctant to leave after our short break and pleasantly surprised to
