About the property

3 bedroom cottage within easy walking distance of the centre of Crickhowell

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 lockable garage and an off road parking space for two cars. The centre of Crickhowell with it's interesting shops, restaurants and pubs is a five minute walk away.

If you are interested in Ashfield Cottage, I strongly recommend you send through an enquiry for an accurate price, since the auto-generated quote can look alarmingly high and is often inaccurate. For more information and advice you are welcome to contact me on 07940 576048.

Located in the historic market town of Crickhowell, Ashfield Cottage is well situated for the many annual events in the area. For instance, the Crickhowell Walking Festival in February, followed by the internationally popular Hay Festival in late May / early June . 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 plus Crickhowell has recently launched a Literary Festival in October.

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 decorated to a high standard. There is Unlimited Infinity Wi-Fi and we are lucky enough (for Wales!) to get a good mobile phone signal.

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.

About Joanna Buckle

I have been letting the house successfully through HomeAway since 2010, with many return visitors. It is my home in Crickhowell rather than a house set up to let so has many personal features which I hope others also enjoy.

The location of the property is a short walk from the town center,which is a fantastic little view into the past,great little shops and a very busy place.

The cottage is first class fully equipped and very well furnished,.The views from the front of the property are outstanding and the front garden is lovely just as in the photo, There is plenty of parking for 2 cars,and lots of places of interest within easy reach.The local pubs do great food and are well worth a visit especially the Bridge end.

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

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!

N.B. If you receive an auto-quote after entering dates into the Owners Direct search system it may not be accurate and will certainly look frighteningly large as they include the returnable security deposit. Also, the automatic calculation for 'Additional Night' is misleading, so please apply for rates for more than a week - discounts are often available for bookings of 10 days or more.

Rent is inclusive of linen and towels and a welcome pack of provisions.
