Property code: BN313

Attractive and instantly welcoming bungalow tucked away in the bustling market town of Crickhowell, boasting long walks from its doorstep and a vast selection of independent shops and eateries to enjoy.

Situated in the heart of Crickhowell in a private lane, this family property is perfectly suited for those eager to leave the car at home. Wander the 300 metres into the town centre and stroll through independent stores, nipping into the lovely family pubs for a bite to eat or a swift pint of something local. Take a walk along the River Usk (0.5 miles) or perhaps bring fishing rods to collect a catch of the day. The property overlooks Wales’ impressive Black Mountain range, with Waun Fach (9 miles) and its neighbouring peaks well worth a hike or mountain biking adventure. Music fans will adore the property’s proximity to the ever-popular Green Man music festival (2 miles), while literary lovers can take day trips to Hay-on-Wye (19 miles).

All set out on one level, this charming bungalow is lovingly-presented and an instant home from home. Step inside and leave muddy walking boots in the spacious hall before wandering into the kitchen. This generous family space maintains an original farmhouse style, with electric cooker, gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine available to use throughout your stay. Head through French doors into the dining room, where six can sit down together beside a picture window offering views of the garden. You’ll find another generous window in the lounge, alongside sofas, TV/DVD and a selection of books and games to enjoy. Three bedrooms are handily located right here on the ground floor, including a master double bedroom with a TV and plenty of storage space. Further storage space can be found in the twin bedroom, and from here there is access to a final king-size bedroom. Completing the property is a contemporary family bathroom with free-standing bath, shower and WC, as well as a smaller shower room with WC adjacent to the kitchen.

The property is surrounded by mature gardens and bright greenery, a true treat in this town centre location. Sit in the secluded garden and dine alfresco, firing up the BBQ or simply taking dinner at the outdoor dining set.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Good value for money. Lovely place to stay.


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.
