This reverse-level cottage situated within a peaceful development is just a stone’s throw from the heart of Crickhowell. A great base for couples wanting to explore the Brecon Beacons National Park.

This charming cottage in the heart of the ancient market town, Crickhowell, is an ideal rural retreat for couples or small families. Nestled amongst the unbridled countryside of the Brecon Beacons National Park, the town is a great base if you’re looking to immerse yourselves in the natural beauty of the area. You can enjoy gentle strolls by the river or more challenging climbs to the top of local peaks. With such an abundance of walking and cycling trails on offer, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to your next adventure. One thing is certain though: you will feel a world away from your usual hectic pace of life. Close to the town centre, in a small, architect-designed development, this bright and airy, reverse-level cottage has everything you’ll need for a relaxing stay. Warm woods pop against the neutral tones to create an inviting space. On the ground floor, you’ll find the well-presented double bedroom which leads out to the small courtyard, which is perfect for enjoying a morning coffee. The unusual layout ensures you can enjoy rooftop views and glimpses of mountains from the well-equipped open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner on the first floor. From here, a ladder leads up to an additional single bed on a mezzanine floor. Delightful Crickhowell, in the Usk Valley, is popular with visitors as it has many independent shops and eateries amongst its beautiful buildings. Its close proximity to some of the Brecons’ most impressive peaks, such as Sugar Loaf Mountain (7.5 miles) and Pen y Fan (21 miles), also make it popular with keen walkers. Other outdoor activities are also available such as canoeing, climbing and horse riding. But if you’re in need of a rest day, you could always visit another Welsh town such as Abergavenny (6.5 miles), Brecon (14.5 miles) or book-lover's haven, Hay-on-Wye (20.5 miles).

Clean, well kept and in an excellent location for taking advantage of all the the town of Crickhowell has to offer and a base for exploring the Brecon Beacons, Black Mountains and the Brecon and Mon. Canal, we really enjoyed our week at Acorns. Dedicated parking is a bonus.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

The Brecon Beacons is a vast, mountainous and rural region of Wales. Stretching 42 miles from east to west and covering an area of 520 square miles, the Brecon Beacons is dominated by the National Park of the same name. Split into three main areas, the Black Mountain in the west, the Brecon Beacons National Park and Fforest Fawr in the middle, and the Black Mountains in the east; each is a wild, bold and inspiring place to visit on holiday. With 1232 miles of public trails which includes the 95-mile-long Beacons Way, it’s a wayfarer’s delight. One of four Dark Skies Reserves in the UK (and one of 11 in the world), stargazers can delight in the open night sky, to enjoy the darkness in full splendour. The Fforest Fawr is a UNESCO Global Geopark because of its important geology and a need to conserve and protect the area from negative over development.

Stay at a self-catering cottage in the mountains and cascading woodlands or out on the moors; you can also stay in one of the Brecon Beacon’s lovely towns like Hay-on-Wye, Crickhowell, Llangorse or Brecon. Outdoor lovers will enjoy a choice of easy to challenging treks up and around Sugar Loaf Mountain, Carn Pica, Craig Cerrig-Gleisiad, Pen y Fan, or Hatterall Ridge (and many more besides). Take in uniquely Welsh attractions like Dan-yr-Ogof (the National Showcaves Centre for Wales), The Big Pit Mining Museum, Llanthony Priory, Carreg Cennen Castle, Fourteen Locks, and the Brecon Beacons Mountain Railway. Wildlife abounds in the Brecon Beacons, and it’s a great place to spot red kites and discover the successful story of their reintroduction to the UK’s skies at the Red Kite Centre. There’s so much to do for outdoor lovers and extreme sports fans here, so why not book your self-catering holiday in the Brecon Beacons today?

Our holiday cottages across the Brecon Beacons have been carefully selected. From dog-friendly cottages in the countryside to large farmhouses on the mountainsides and everything in between, we have a holiday in the Brecon Beacons to suit you.
