Bridge House is a delightful Georgian townhouse in bustling Crickhowell recently voted Best High Street in Britain. It's spacious, luxurious and full of quirky charm. This deceptively huge holiday house is perfect for a family or group getaway. It has 4 bedrooms with up to 8 beds (including a day bed, trundle bed and fold out bed which would be perfect for children), loads of living space, with a beautifully equipped kitchen, 2 sitting rooms and a games room. The sweet garden has two original outbuildings, one with an additional luxurious shower room, and one with a utility room.
This would be a great place to stay if you are attending an event in Cardiff whether the Rugby, Football or an event at St David's Hall or The Millenium Stadium - it is less than an hour's drive.
In nearby ABergavenny they have the annual Abbergavenny Festival of Cycling - this year being held on the weekend of the 29th June 2019. Really worth for all bike lovers. https://www.abergavennyfestivalofcycling.co.uk/index.php/34-afoc-team-news/322-festival-starts-our-2019-news
From this Crickhowell holiday cottage, it's a two minute walk to the independent shops and many good pubs and restaurants. It's a short walk down to the River Usk and the waterside meadows, and there are cracking footpaths in and around Crickhowell and neighbouring Llangattock. Close by you can explore the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons as well as the River Usk. Outdoor enthusiasts will love the fishing, canoeing, climbing, golf, hang-gliding, horse riding and mountain biking.

The bustling high street runs down to the idyllic river with it's historic bridge over to the neighbouring village of Llangattock.
