A lovely old stone barn set in the deep valley between Talgarth and Crickhowell. With great views up to Pen Allt Mawr; with walks from the door deep into The Black Mountains and over the road to Mynydd Llangorse. The barn has everything necessary to welcome walkers and cyclists to the area. There is excellent riding and pony trekking close by and The Gliding Centre is just up the lane. Tretower Court and Castle are just up the road, very often used for film locations. Talgarth is a welcoming village with The Mill - a working watermill that grinds the flour; there is a great cafe where visitors can enjoy good food with bread made on the premises. There are several really good independent shops, Mr. George the Butcher - renowned in the area and beyond, a small supermarket, several good pubs and an excellent fish and chip shop.
Crickhowell (The Fair Tax Town) is again a great little town with some really excellent independent shops and restaurants set on the River Usk.

Dear Brecon Cottages We returned yesterday from our week's holiday at Little Hill Barn near Crickhowell. Just wanted you to know that we were delighted with our accommodation and the unobtrusive friendliness and helpfulness of our hosts. The cottage more than matched up to its description, and was comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. It was particularly suitable for the dog, and a very easy place to be. Two things we especially appreciated – and which are not normal in our experience of holiday cottages – were the unlimited supply of logs, even in June; and the excellent lighting right through the house, which meant we could easily see to read without resorting to the lamps we now take with us everywhere we go. I don't know if this is a recommendation Brecon Cottages makes to owners, but if it isn't, it might be worth considering. So many cottages have 'mood lighting' which only serves to put people like us with fading eyesight in a bad mood! Thank you for leading us to this location for ou
