Westcombe House has been converted to a superb contemporary dwelling from the 18th century Wesleyan Chapel in a quiet road in the small market town of Crickhowell. It has been most sympathetically converted with large windows to make the most of the views, very comfortable bedrooms, excellent bathrooms and many of the original old beams and stone work being retained. This is a wonderful house for a group of friends who are perhaps attending a wedding in the area or who would like a really comfortable and very conveniently located house with no need for the cars to be used. If you are a gastronome or simply enjoy good food there are many excellent award winning country pubs and restaurants within close proximity of the house. Crickhowell has some excellent and interesting local shops, excellent deli/butcher, cafes etc. Behind the Chapel is the Castle with castle grounds, a cricket pitch and park.

      Service rating : Very efficient and helpful
      Product : Excellent. Have stayed before and would go back again, but there are a few areas that need attention. The oven broke down one night, the shower in main bathroom flooded (the drains may need to be unblocked regularly) and the fridge in the kitchen froze some of our food, so the temperature wasn't working that well.

      Service rating : Very helpful and pleasant telephone manner. Took up their recommendation for Sunday lunch booking and The Bear did us proud. Lovely grub!
      Product : We had a wonderful time at Westcombe House. Ideal venue for a large family group, enabling us to celebrate my Dad's 60th in style. The kitchen table was perfect for our warm evening buffet and there was a vast range of utensils, roasting trays and serving dishes which meant that we were able to cook for a large group and present the food beautifully. The beds were comfortable, rooms spotless and children's toys and stair gate much appreciated! Lovely light, airy space upstairs when the sunlight came flooding in in the morning. We all felt very relaxed and my Dad commented that you feel so different in a large, spacious and bright environment. Much fun was had by all. We'll be coming back! Kind regards, Lucy Rolfe

      Thank you for your lovely review following your stay at Westcombe House. Thank you for the pictures, it looks like you all had a great time. Westcombe house is great for a family celebration!
