Westcombe House has been converted to a superb contemporary dwelling from the 18th century Wesleyan Chapel in a quiet road in the small market town of Crickhowell. It has been most sympathetically converted with large windows to make the most of the views, very comfortable bedrooms, excellent bathrooms and many of the original old beams and stone work being retained. This is a wonderful house for a group of friends who are perhaps attending a wedding in the area or who would like a really comfortable and very conveniently located house with no need for the cars to be used. If you are a gastronome or simply enjoy good food there are many excellent award winning country pubs and restaurants within close proximity of the house. Crickhowell has some excellent and interesting local shops, excellent deli/butcher, cafes etc. Behind the Chapel is the Castle with castle grounds, a cricket pitch and park. Crickhowell was voted The Best British High Street in 2019 sponsored by VISA.
