This former toll house, brimming with character, sits on the banks of the river Usk and within 1 mile of Crickhowell’s bustling high street. This vibrant village offers restaurants, pubs and a good mix of shops, including a bakers and butchers where you can pick up tasty local produce. Walkers can leave the car behind, with routes that will guide you into the national park up some of the peaks, including dramatic Table Mountain. There are activity centres that offer kayaking, climbing, mountain biking and horse riding throughout the area. For more leisurely days out, there are some lovely market towns such as Hay-on-Wye (20 miles) known as the town of books, Abergavenny (6.5 miles) and Brecon (14.5 miles).
Step away from the hustle and bustle of this vibrant market town and into the entrance hall of this reverse-level accommodation. Here, there’s space to leave muddy boots and coats after a day exploring the hills. The ground floor offers guests the choice of two bedrooms – a super-king-size zip-and-link (that can be made into twin beds on request when booking) and a twin room – and a bathroom with shower over the bath, and WC. The staircase leads to an open-plan living space, brimming with original features, including exposed beams and toll-house windows offering views across the River Usk, the old stone bridge and surrounding hillsides. A cosy corner sofa faces a Smart TV and a wood burner. For dining, take a seat around the large wooden table; the stylish, open-plan kitchen complements the space, offering everything you will need for preparing food.
There is one allocated parking space available on arrival at the Vine Tree restaurant which is across the bridge.
