Property description

N.B. HomeAway's daily rate calculation is inaccurate and misleading, so please do enquire about rates for more than a week.

Ashfield Cottage is a picturesque stone Victorian cottage, in a cul de sac, situated on the edge of Crickhowell in the beautiful Usk Valley, with views of the Brecon Beacons. It has a pretty front garden gated from the road, plus a garage and an off road parking space for two cars.


The cottage comprises: a large sitting/dining room with gas fired stove, television with incorporated DVD. plus a stereo and i player/phone dock. Next door is a new well equipped kitchen with gas hob and double ovens. There are 3 bedrooms (one double and two double/twin) and a family bathroom with over bath shower. Downstairs there is shower room with lavatory plus a utility room with washing machine. The sun room off the kitchen offers a cheerful second dining area for up to 8 people opening into the sunny back court yard. The whole house is newly decorated to a high standard.

Ashfield cottage is heated throughout with gas fired central heating. The west facing front garden is partiularly lovely on sunny evenings, when you can watch the sun set along the Usk Valley, while the courtyard outside the sun room catches the morning sun - lovely for al fresco breakfast! A welcome pack and linen are included. While one well behaved dog is permissible by arrangement, the cottage is not really suitable for small children or infirm people


Notes and further details: The welcome pack contains basics such as milk, bread, eggs, fruit, sparkling water and a bottle of wine. General provisions (e.g. tea, coffee, jam and marmalade) and general cooking ingredients are constants in the food cupboards. However it is possible to supply more substantial provisions by arrangement.
We request no smoking anywhere in the house and reserve the right to charge for extra cleaning if smoking should take place.
There is a visitor centre in Crickhowell which can provide details of local activities, events and facilities.

Located in the historic market town of Crickhowell, Ashfield Cottage is well situated for the many anual events in the area. For instance, the Crickhowell Walking Festival in February, followed by the internationally popular Hay Festival in late May 2013. The Brecon Jazz and The Green Man Festivals are in August and every September brings the now famous Abergavenny Food Festival. In July you can take in The Royal Welsh Show at Builth Wells.

Situated by the river Usk, Crickhowell enjoys spectacular views of the Llangattock Hills on one side and The Table Mountain & Sugar Loaf on the other. The town has a splendid mix of shops, ranging from gourmet food through furniture and household, to clothes, so there is plentiful opportunity for retail therapy!

For activities, there are spectacular walks in the Brecon Beacons, horse riding - both trecking and with formal instruction, fishing on the River Usk, sailing on Lake Llangors and canal boats on the Brecon to Pontypool Canal, as well as interesting houses, gardens and museums in the area. Also, there are several good pubs and restaurants within easy walking distance, incluing the award-winning Bear Hotel, so cooking is not always essential! To find more information and pictures of this interesting town you could look at www.crickhowellinfo.org.uk.

Cardiff is about an hour's drive or easy train ride and as befits the capital of Wales, has many interesting and historic attractions, such as the castle and museum and the new Cardiff Bay development. Slightly closer can be found Brecon, Merthyr Tydfil and Hay on Wye - the home of book shops!
