About Valley View Cottage

Valley View Cottage is a wonderful retreat for couples or solo adventurers who want to stay in the heart of the Brecon Beacons with amazing views and fantastic walks from the door. It's on the outskirts of Llangattock, about a 10-minute walk from the friendly Horseshoe Inn and The Vinetree, and half an hour's stroll from Crickhowell with The Bear, and The Dragon Inn providing more choice for a meal out. You can step outside the door and have direct access to footpaths and mountain bike trails, with many options for days when you don't want to be outdoors. The one-bedroom cottage is pet-friendly and has been given a 4-Star rating by Visit Wales.

The landscape of the Brecon Beacons is diverse and beautiful. The base of Pen-y-Fan, the highest mountain in southern Britain, is only a short drive from the cottage, and you can walk to Table Mountain and the Sugarloaf. If you love hill-walking, then you'll also want to consider the Dragon's Back and Waun Fach, Corn Du, the Skirrid, and The Blorenge - all of which reward walkers with panoramic views. A walk doesn't have to be challenging to be worthwhile. From Valley View Cottage, you can walk to the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, easily reach the waterfall walk at Talybont, stroll beside the Rivers Usk and Wye, or visit Craig y Cilau National Nature Reserve, which is walkable from the cottage.

Mountain, riverside and canal side walking is very popular. The Crickhowell Walking Festival arrange over 80 walks during the festival week and local guides are available.

While the mountains are hundreds of millions of years old, other landmarks reflect the region's more recent history. There are still some stones left of the Iron Age hillfort on Table Mountain and a host of Norman castles that include Abergavenny, Skenfrith, White Castle, and Grosmont. Even the canal is a historical remnant, built to move coal, iron and limestone from the Brecon Beacons to the docks in Newport. There's evidence of limestone quarrying around the Llangattock Escarpment. Blaenavon Industrial Landscape's designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site recognises how important this industry - and the people who worked in it - was to the Industrial Revolution. Big Pit and the Blaenavon Ironworks are free and allow visitors to descend into a real coal mine.

Crickhowell's locals have worked hard to keep their high street independent, so you'll find an excellent choice of locally-owned shops, pubs and specialist food shops. Abergavenny has three supermarkets and a general market every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. You can also pick up provisions at one of the area's farm shops or farmer's markets.

The owners have several adults (and infants) only cottages that sleep between two and six people. Depending on availability, they can be booked together to sleep groups of extended family or friends. Please see the owner's website for information.
