Comfortable Group Retreat, near Crickhowell (WHITWBR)

The Property 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. The Property 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.

The Property 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.

LocationMid Wales

This is the go to place for outdoor enthusiasts to make the most of the fantastic walking, riding & cycling opportunities, especially in the Cambrian Mountains National Park. The Ceredigion Coastal Path features numerous trails to choose from depending on how far you wish to travel. Whether for a full walking holiday or just a stroll along the cliffs to a village pub, this unspoilt route is perfect and has views out across the famous Cardigan Bay which is home to the UKs largest pod of dolphins.

Dotted along the Wales-West England border are lots of lovely market towns, many of which have their own castle. This disputed ground has a large number of Roman and Norman medieval fortresses, today some are only ruins or just the earthen works remain however there are plenty which have restored to their former glory and are open to visitors.

Mid Wales also just touches on the edge of the Brecon Beacons, a popular mountain range for exploring caves, forest activities and other more extreme outdoor sports such as rock climbing and abseiling. A number of historic railways mean other regions of Wales are easily accessible for a day trip, and make for an enjoyable way to travel and take in the sights.
