This lovely south-facing cottage was extensively renovated in 2013 to provide two double en suite bedrooms to sleep four people. 2 Mill Street has been graded 4 star self catering accommodation by Visit Wales and is in a cul de sac two minutes’ walk from Crickhowell High Street with its great shops, pubs and restaurants. A new kitchen, two new bathrooms and gas central heating were provided as part of the renovations. With mountain views to front and rear, it’s an excellent base for walking and cycling in the Brecon Beacons National Park as well as exploring the town.
The accommodation is on three floors having two double en suite bedrooms either side of a living area on the middle floor.

The rest of this sunny, south-facing room has two sofas, a dining table and chairs for four, a large screen television (with freesat channels), DVD player, electric fire, wi-fi hub and ipod dock. This room overlooks the lawned front garden with access via the front door and stone steps.

This bedroom has a south-facing aspect and views to the Llangattock Escarpment. There are also spectacular rear views to the Black Mountains from the landing window.
The lower ground floor contains the second bedroom with double bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and en suite shower room including sink and WC.

“Long weekend - walking break”
Perfect location for exploring the area. Crickhowell is well worth the visit with good shops and pubs. Parking is at a premium so it was very handy being within walking distance of the High street and there were plenty of walks from the house.
Lovely property with everything you could need. Warm, clean and beautifully presented - we will be back! Ps - The welcome hamper was excellent.

When travelling from the north, east or south i.e. from England or from South Wales, you are most likely to end up at Hardwick roundabout outside Abergavenny where the A40, A465 and A4042 meet. From the roundabout take the exit marked Merthyr Tydfil A465, Blaenavon, Llanfoist. Keep on the dual carriageway for two miles until you reach a roundabout and Crickhowell is signposted from here (take 3rd exit – A4077). At Gilwern village keep following the signs to Crickhowell. After two miles go through the village of Legar and at the traffic lights turn right over the Usk bridge towards Crickhowell. Keep left at Bridge End Inn on other side of bridge. Carry on up New Road, after a few hundred yards up the hill turn left at the fork in the road which is Mill Street. 2 Mill Street is on the left at the bottom of the slope – parking is on the gravel drive to the rear.
The above is the quickest route but should you find yourself in Abergavenny follow the A40 towards Brecon. When you get to Crickhowell drive through the town and at the Shell petrol station turn left towards Llangattock onto New Road. Pass Crickhowell High School on your right and as you pass the church on your left there is a very sharp right turn which is Mill Street. 2 Mill Street is on the left at the bottom of the slope – parking is on the gravel drive to the rear.
