Nestled within the Brecon Beacons National Park, Llangattock is a sleepy little village surrounded by stunning scenery. It lies across the River Usk from the small town of Crickhowell and is just a 15 minute drive from the larger market town of Abergavenny.
This pretty village was a busy thoroughfare during the nineteenth century – the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal (used today by wildlife and holidaymakers) once transported coal, iron and agricultural goods between Brecon and Pontypool, and the imposing Llangattock Escarpment provided limestone to many parts of the UK.
Today, Llangattock is surrounded by lush green fields and woodland and is the ideal destination for walkers, mountain bikers, wildlife lovers and anyone wanting to get away from it all!
