The detail

On the border where England meets Wales, filled with caves, lakes and waterways, the Breacon Beacon National Park is one of Wales' most popular destinations, attracting visitors from all over the world excited to climb the famous hills and experience the culture, history and beauty of the region.
For those with romance in their souls, The Tower is a unique property which promises guests luxury, history and privacy in the heart of the national park, situated on the stunning Glanusk Estate.

This cosy, Grade II listed, tower, originally built as a folly, has been lovingly restored by local Welsh craftspeople. The restoration has maintained and enhanced the immense character of this charming accommodation, but modern furnishings and fixtures ensure guests enjoy their stay without compromising comfort or luxury.
The approach to The Tower is as stunning as the property itself, travel over a stone bridge and your accommodation stands before you. Spend a moment taking in this wonderful structure before stepping through the Welsh stone doorway and head upwards to the rooms.

Climb the winding stone stairway into the the living, kitchen and dining area. Wooden floors and beautiful leaded windows are complimented by a library wall, covered in large leather bound books. So, after a long day exploring the area, stoke up the wood burner, pour a gin and tonic, (Glanusk gin is made on the estate) chose a volume from the library and sink into one of the handsome leather armchairs.

A small, modern kitchen fills one corner of the room and is perfectly equipped for guests to prepare romantic suppers which can be enjoyed by candlelight at the dining table for two. Gaze out through the stone-framed windows across the historic estate and take in the beautiful views of abundant woodlands and the famous greens of the Welsh hillsides.

When bedtime beckons, this quiet room and its double bed, dressed with crisp linens, offer guests a restorative night's sleep. Heavy drapes keep out the moonlight and ensuring long lie-ins, leaving guests refreshed and energised for another day exploring this beautiful region.
The bathroom leads into the en-suite shower room, complimentary toiletries and fluffy white towels make for a luxurious experience in this beautifully designed bathroom, with modern metro tiles and a rainfall shower head.

The estate is a lovely place to spend the day, stroll through the woodlands, admire the landscaped gardens or enjoying a picnic by the river. Hampers can be stocked up at some of the fantastic shops in nearby Crickhowell, which is also home to popular pubs and restaurants including The Bear Hotel and Latte Da - which serves traditional afternoon teas.

We stayed for 2 nights and really wished we had booked longer. The Tower is so beautiful inside and out. We were informed due to covid little soft furnishings were taken out which is understandable so took our own throw and cushions but other than that we missed nothing. There is even underfloor heating! Harry, Nelly and the rest of the team were so friendly, tentative and approachable. The bed was soooo comfortable and we could relax in a peaceful setting with Glan Usk gin in hand! Our dog was welcomed and made a fuss of too. So nice to stay in a place of high spec that welcomes dogs. 2mile run into Crickhowell following the river or the canal. Perfect place to really unwind, spot fish in the river and chill out in front of the log fire. We would definitely go back or explore the other cottage options

Stayed April 2021
