Crickhowell, Brecon Beacons
A cosy, traditional cottage in Wales, with vast views of the Black Mountains and sheep grazing on green fields.
Llangattock Cottage is listed in affiliation with Holiday Cottages.
Perched in a truly wonderful location on the Llangattock Hillside, the views from Llangattock Cottage are breath taking! Dating back to 1580, it's hard to imagine the generations that have stood in the same unique cottage admiring the stunning vista of the Black Mountains....none of which will have enjoyed quite so much comfort!
Restored by the current owners, romance and decadence are very much at the forefront of the design. A fabulous modern wood burner, with a traditional Aga, highlights the tasteful juxtaposition of the very new with the seriously old. There are thick stone cottage walls, exposed oak beams, flat screen television, DVD and iPod dock, as well as one of the best romantic bedrooms in our cottage collection.
The oak spiral staircase leads from the cosy sitting room, up to the bedroom, complete with king-size bed, marshmallow duvet and a fantastic modern bathroom, making lazing in bed totally guilt free.
Should you grow tired of shutting yourself away from the world, 55,000 acres of common land is right outside your front door, with numerous walking and cycling trails. The Brecon and Monmouth Canal is at the bottom of the hill, perfect for a gentle stroll into nearby Crickhowell for the morning newspaper and a delicious latte in Number 18, our favourite local coffee shop.
There are a number of walks and cycle trails straight out of the door up into the Black Mountains, or down towards the Brecon and Monmouth Canal. There are also two good National Sustrans Routes in easy reach, Numbers 42 and 46 both make excellent rides. Bike hire is available for delivery from Drovers Cycles in Hay.
Some of the best caves in Europe, for all levels, are to be found on Llangattock Escarpment. There are local companies that will guide you, should you want some adventure.
There is a good local riding centre just a short walk or drive further up the hill. Breathtaking treks across the Black Mountains are available throughout the spring and summer season.
