Ash Cottage is one of our favourite cottages. This very pretty traditional stone cottage with roses around the door is set in the village of Llangynidr. The cottage sleeps four people in two bedrooms and has been very carefully and thoughtfully decorated and furnished. The cosy sitting room has a fine woodburning stove set in the original great stone fireplace with an inglenook, bread oven and an oak lintel. A flight of original steep stone stairs wind up behind the fireplace. Relaxing here after a days walking or sightseeing is bliss with the flagstone floors, rugs and oak beams.
Just a few minutes walk down through the village brings a choice of two pub/restaurants both with childrens play areas, a village shop, the canal passing throught the village and the River Usk with its very narrow ancient stone bridge.
Close to Brecon, Abergavenny and Crickhowell, there is easy access over to The Welsh Valleys and Heads of the Valleys Road.
The newly fitted cream kitchen has a fridge (with ice box), dishwasher, microwave, electric oven with grill and a hob, a wine cooler, for those long hot summer nights, plenty of space for storage.
Stone walls and oak beams make this a spacious sitting room, there is a comfy sofa and two big armchairs around the focal point of the "ingle nook" fire place with a very efficient wood burning stove. TV with Freeview and DVD. A lovely circular antique dining table providing ample space for eating. Matching sash windows looking down the village street.

Crickhowell is the proud winner of the best British High Street, 2018. It's steeped in history, has almost entirely independent (and excellent) shops, really good pubs and restaurants and award winning cafes. The bustling high street runs down to the idyllic river with it's historic bridge over to the neighbouring village of Llangattock. Crickhowell is a great base for outdoor enthusiasts, with fantastic cycling and walking in the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons. To top it all, there's an annual music festival, The Green Man, just outside the town. Read more about Crickhowell
