The four star hotels in the vicinity are set against a spectacular backdrop of rolling hills and with top class service guaranteed you may find yourself not wanting to leave the hospitality of the accommodation to experience the splendour of the Welsh countryside.
Although the hotels have exceptional dining facilities, there are a variety of eating options in the town if you fancy a bit of a change. Whether you are after traditional pub grub or a la carte sophistication there’s plenty of places to choose from, with a stunning setting to enjoy while you eat.
By arranging your accommodation in Crickhowell you will be able to enjoy the independent spirit that thrives in the town and a perfect example of that is the range of shops among the charming streets.

Artists and musicians have long been drawn to the area as a source of inspiration and now the wonderfully eclectic Green Man Festival takes place each August in Glanusk Park just outside the town.
If you like the idea of experiencing the wide-ranging musical acts but don’t fancy roughing it in a tent, then why not take advantage of the town’s hotels to ensure a good night’s sleep after a day enjoying the festival. Be sure to book early though as the festival is very popular and swells the population of the town considerably.
With mile upon mile of stunning Welsh rural countryside alongside a historical landscape, Crickhowell is ideal for anyone wanting to get away from it all.
