The village of Llangynidr is in two halves - Upper and Lower Llangynidr where there is very easy access over the dramatic Llangynidr Mountain to The Heads of The Valley Road and The Welsh Valleys. Llangynidr is right in the heart of the Black Mountains and The Brecon Beacons National Park.  

The village is divided in two by the very interesting Brecon and Monmouth canal with the tow path - always interesting with the canal boats passing up and down through the locks and usually people gathered around wating the boats passing through the locks. The tow path is always popular for an evening wander. There are two good pubs in the village, The nearest is The Red Lion a very pleasant and friendly local pub serving great home cooked food. There is also The Coach and Horse set beside the canal that again offers good food and company. Llangynidr village has The Walnut Stores, a shop/post office and an excellent cafe - that changes on a Friday night into a Cocktail Bar - visitors are spoilt for choice 

The River Usk at the bottom of the village has excellent fishing and during the summer some great wild swimming places.

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
