This romantic "fairy tale"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 Mountain Inn, a great old inn with a superb view and supposedly the oldest and the most haunted Inn in Wales - just across the lane, a hundred yards or so from the house, as is the village shop and the garage. The area is full of history with the pub reputedly being a rallying point for Owain Glyndwr - the leader of the Welsh revolt in the fiftenth century. The Tower is only three miles from the strangely shaped conical Sugar Loaf Mountain, the southernmost in The Black Mountains. From this distinctive beautiful old tower there is plenty of 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.
