18 Cric is the perfect place to stay if you want to be close to some excellent places to eat without taking the car. Walk to The Bear, The Dragon, The Vine Tree and several more excellent places.  Crickhowell High Street  is full of interesting shops, there is the wonderful family run small department store Webbs that sells almost everything in the hardware department from seeds to sofa's and they will deliver all over Britain and even Europe and they do regularly!  There is Nicolls for great fashion and gifts, a superb butchers and bakers, a chemist, a couple of art galleries, a book shop, outdoor shop, antique shop and plenty more;  several cafes and a great Resource Centre with local information and maps. 

The Corn Exchange in Crickhowell is an excellent example of a community project ; the townspeople all wanted to ensure there were no big chain stores on the high street and bought the pub which was then turned into individual "boutique style" shops and a Zero Waste Shop - the first in Wales.

Customer Testimonials

Mrs C. Jones - 5th March 2019

We just returned from ten days staying at 18 Cric, the cottage is well appointed and very comfortable. It was so clean I thought maybe I was the first person to visit, the kitchen contains everything you could possibly need and more, the bathroom had nice big fluffy towels, extra soap, shampoo, toothpaste and the beds were very comfortable. the owners could not do enough to ensure our comfort including providing milk, tea, coffee, bread, butter and jam. The location is perfect for easy access to pubs, restaurants, walking and biking. Would definitely return, highly recommend.
