Romantic hideaway set within the Black Mountains but yet amenities a short drive away in the local villages that surround the area

Enjoy and relax in this romantic and cosy getaway for you and your partner and bring your beloved pooch too! This stunning cottage is finished with scenic countryside views and is set in a peaceful location within the Black Mountains. Enter the cottage to a thoughtful welcome pack with bread, milk and eggs, before going on a walk (or run!) with your four-legged pal in the Black Mountains.

This one level accommodation is full of light and relaxing rooms, with beautiful rural views, giving you a real hideaway feel. The open-plan lounge/diner has everything you will need during your stay. Why not prepare a romantic meal for two before sitting back and relaxing in the comfortable lounge with a favourite programme or film? Start your mornings the right way from the bright and colourful bedroom and hop in the jacuzzi-style bath, before having a morning coffee on your enclosed terrace. Parking is available for two vehicles.

The property is situated a short distance of 3 miles above the village of Crickhowell where you can browse the independent shops before visiting one of the dog-friendly inns. More options include the village of Llangattock just 2 miles away, which offers plenty of water holes to quench your thirst after a day exploring the hills. Llangattock Escarpment is well known for having some of the best caves in Europe, and there are local guides available to help you explore. The famous book town of Hay-on-Wye is 20 miles away, with international acclaim for its annual literary festival, as well as a great selection of independent second-hand bookshops to browse.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Fantastic place in which we thoroughly enjoyed a weekend away. Great walks across the slate mines were only a short distance from the cottage; perfect for the dog walks. Would definitely recommend.

Willow Cottage is ideally equipped for those who like activities and a quiet location. Self catering is a definite option as one has to be brave to negotiate the steep horseshoe bends several times a day if you want to keep going out. To be fair we knew from the cottage write-up it may be challenging. We were very comfortable and even when there waRead mores power cut in the morning the owner came round with a conciliatory bottle of something fizzy. Hide

This magnificent cottage is the perfect place to be when wanting scenery, tranquility, and quietness. We could not fault anything about it. The landlords have done a tremendous job on getting everything just right for any couples wanting that romantic setting. Many of the reviews mention the journey getting to the cottage. I agree its through narroRead morew lanes and steep. But after a few trips in and out, you get used to the journey. The end product is worth any bumpy ride. Overall, a Superb weekend. Hide

Clean, well equiped and comfortable cottage. Roads to and from cottage alittle rugged and steep, dodging the sheep on the narrow track was intetesting. Very peaceful and quiet.

Willow Cottage is a cosy retreat. We sat out for breakfast most mornings. Great walking options from the cottage or a short drive away. Crickhowell (nearest town a couple of miles away) is renown for its independent shops where we were able to buy all our provisions for the week. We especially liked the Zero Waste shop - take empty plastic containeRead morers to fill. A real plus for us was being able to charge our electric car using the outside socket at the cottage. Hide

What a wonderful property in a fantastic location! We thoroughly enjoyed our Easter break staying here. The directions shared to find the property were clear and spot on. The postcode does give a good approx location on Google Maps too, but for the last few steps, the directions provided were essential. The property is surrounded by a couple of houRead moreses and then nothing but fields, sheep and amazing views - all whilst being a short drive to Crickhowell and a number of great BB sights and walks.
