A delightful little holiday cottage in the charming riverside village of Llangattock, close to the Church of St Catwg, the earliest part of which dates from the 13th century within short walk to the two village pubs The Vine Tree and The Horseshoe or across the bridge into Crickhowell for further choice of pubs and places to eat along with the local shops.
Just around the corner is the Horse Shoe pub and then a short walk to the Vinetree if your wanting a special meal. Visitors can walk along the canal tow path of the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal and see the narrow boats and for keen walkers there are miles of open hillside and wild countryside to explore with the Sugar Loaf, Table Mountain, The Blorenge and Llangattock Mountain and Escarpment in the Black Mountains with Brecon Beacons beyond. Visit Big Pit and The World Heritage Site at Blaenavon or enjoy Crickhowell less than a mile through the water meadows and over the River Usk Bridge with its many interesting local small and independent shops, restaurants and galleries.
As the cottage is only a five minute walk from the canal and then good flat walking in both directions and a pretty 10 minute walk from Crickhowell, with its shops, cafes and information centre, it would be possible to do a "no car" holiday.
Abergavenny with the closest railway station is 7 miles and Brecon 14 miles.
