Whitewalls was originally a terrace of traditional of quarrymen's cottages with a backdrop of Llangattock Escarpment rising up on the mountainside behind - always popular with climbers and walkers. Whitewalls is now a substantial and luxurious family house with the most magnificent panoramic views; it is set in a large grassed garden , perfect for children to play, with a further enclosed walled terrace behind. In the front of the cottage there is a sunny stone terrace, great for BBQs and watching the sunset with the most fantastic views over to the Sugar Loaf Mountain and The Black Mountains.
Whitewalls is a five minute drive (a pretty steep road in places) down to Crickhowell and Llangattock with two pubs serving food in Llangattock and lots more in Crickhowell. From the house there is immediate access onto the open hillside for walking and mountain biking, bikes can be hired locally and delivered to the door. The road up from the village is winds around the hillside and then over the mountain eventually reaching Brynmawr and The Heads of The Valleys Road, Abergavenny and beyond. A perfect spot to stay and enjoy the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains or to visit Cardiff and the South Wales Valleys which are less than an hour drive.

"Fabulous house and location. We all had a great time. Just a pity about the weather!" Vicki
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
Mrs T Mac Gregor - 30th June 2017
This place is utter magic; the pretty, steep lanes lead you to this hidden gem, nestled on the side of a mountain looking over Crickhowell. The views from Whitewalls are simply breath-taking. As a party of two families we all had ample space in this property to feel we could 'spread out' and relax. When the sun shines in Wales its paradise and we had a sun filled weekend so the children ran wild in the garden and made the most of the swings and slides with the youngest member of our party, a near permanent fixture in the toddler swing. The large kitchen table hosted many a meal and the outside table made for an al fresco lunch party with local lamb cooked on the bbq. We stumbled upon an incredible walk, where the children picked wild strawberries and discovered 'dragon's caves' and waterfalls. This is our second stay at Whitewalls and we intend to book again for next year.
