Guest Book Comments

Table Mountain Mill was perfect for our weekend trip - it had everything we needed and was super warm and cosy. Great walks too. We would definitely recommend.

I wanted to say a huge thank you for having me especially in such a short notice (few hours) I had an absolute fantastic stay felt like a princess in a gorgeous palace (spotless) with magical surrounding and wonderful hosts!! I felt safe, very welcomed, had my complete privacy, had beautiful walks while meeting lovely people. I feel so lucky to have found such a rare gem. I can't wait to come back again. P.S. (Yummy home made jam:)

A riot of Spring flowers in a blaze of colour, an immaculate and beautifully presented cottage topped off with a freshly baked loaf hot from the oven and homemade preserves - what a fabulous start to a most enjoyable few days in Table Mountain Cottage. We recommend eating at The Bear and the Dragon Inn in Crickhowell, Hay on Wye for browsing interesting shops and market and The Granary for light meals and refreshments, the Golden Road for wonderful scenery and easy motoring and spectacular Red Kites Feeding time at Griggin Farm in Rhayader.

Thank you for a wonderful stay. The cottage is spotlessly clean, cosy and welcoming. We love the Brecon Beacons - we climbed up Pen y Fan which was good fun despite not being able to see anything at the top (too much fog) went to the Bear for some nice local ales and The Dragon Inn for lunch- definitely go there if you are thinking of eating out. We'd love to come again

Thank you for hosting us. It is an absolutely beautiful cottage! We had a good time exploring Brecon Beacons. We had a lovely warm home to come back to every night.

The little things mean a lot, you have thought of everything . It is all spotlessly clean! It has been a pleasure to visit this lovely, beautiful countryside. We had the pleasure of attending a wedding on the Glanusk Estate and staying here was so handy, perfectly placed. Plus a very big plus, the weather was perfect! Thank you

Deborah & Robert, Oxfordshire - 19 September 2016

Beautifully appointed cottage-we didn't want to leave! We did two splendid long circular walks from the cottage.Sugar Loaf and the Llangattock escarpment. No need to use the car at any point. Ale in the Bear one night (excellent food, genteel atmosphere, too hot!!) and The Dragon (excellent food , marvelous service - our favourite of the two). We cooked here one night too and found everything we needed. The garage at the end of the road is great for a sneaky ice-lolly at the end of a strenuous walk. Thank you for everything and for accommodating our extra guest so graciously.

Property Description

Brecon Beacons upside down cottage in Crickhowell, sleeps 2 - pet free.

  • This lovingly renovated, over 200 year old mill has been converted into a well-equipped upside down cottage for holidays. Set on a quiet lane and with breathtaking views across the Glanusk Estate and Valley, the beautiful market town of Crickhowell tumbles down the hill away from the cottage.
  • The cottage is well equipped with a spacious lounge area on each floor.  Choose a novel from the extensive library and sink back into one of the large comfortable sofas.
  • Patio doors open from the bedroom on the ground floor out onto the pretty flower-edged terrace giving views of the valley and the sound of the mill stream below. 
  • An open plan staircase (unsuitable for toddlers and very young children) leads to the first floor where there is a second lounge and well-equipped kitchen/diner.  Every window offers views through wooded glades to the pretty valley.
  • The ancient mill served Crickhowell with grain and later electricity via a watermill which can still be seen today - the babble of the mill stream will add to your precious memories of this peaceful space.
  • Guests are welcome to use the separate laundry and drying facilities.

About the Area

Crickhowell a town rich in history and the arts. 

  • "Unique in any light" is the town’s motto and it is easy to see why. Music, art and walking festivals are just a few of it's attractions. At the heart of The Brecon Beacons National Park, Crickhowell is the perfect base from which to explore this picturesque corner of Wales.  The town is crammed with independent retailers, cool cafes as well as country pubs serving great food and ale and an atmospheric ruined castle.

Table Mountain and Usk Valley Walks 

  • On the doorstep of The Brecon Way, a walk up Table Mountain is a must when staying here.  There are two routes up the flat-top mountain - steep or steady – but it really is well worth the 2 hour walk to see the stunning view from the top.
  • In Crickhowell go back in time when you walk from the imposing Iron Age Hill Fort of Crug Hywel to the longest stone bridge in Wales.  Owain Glydwr made his mark here when he near destroyed the castle, the remains of which still dominate the skyline.
  • The Monmouth and Brecon Canal is evidence of how important this town has been throughout history, now offering tranquil walks and great cycling for all the family.

Eating out in Crickhowell

  • Locals flock to the vintage-style ‘Latte Da’ cafe for a catch-up, home-made cakes and the best coffee.  Lose yourself in the laid back atmosphere of this thriving market town.     
  • The Dragon Hotel is on the High Street - great for morning coffee or a cosy dinner for two but booking is recommended.
  • The Bear Hotel is a 14th century coaching inn which is a landmark pub and eatery offering local produce. There are fine chefs, great roaring fires and quiet corners.
Chocolate Making Workshops, Abergavenny
  • Savour mouth watering chocolate making and tasting workshops at award winning Black Mountain Gold, purveyors of artisan chocolate run by Master Chocolatier Jules James.

Tretower Court and Castle
  • See how the other half lived through the ages from 900 years ago. A succession of wealthy owners altered and refurbished this sumptuous country home to keep up with the latest fashions. The estate is now cared for by CADW and open to the public. A suite of rooms has been recreated in the style of fashions in 1470. A ruined castle stands in the grounds - a wonderful place for picnics and fantasy play.

Glen Usk Estate, Crickhowell

  • This is the largest privately owned estate in Wales.  Annually home to The Green Man Festival, but with more to offer. Make a day of it and try country pursuits such as salmon fishing and clay pigeon shooting -  the setting is absolutely perfect!

Abergavenny - The Gateway to Wales 

  • Abergavenny is a 12th century town proud of its history.  More recently it has become a magnet for gastronomes with the Abergavenny Food Festival drawing the cream of the crop. It is just a 15 minute drive away along the beautiful River Usk.
