Crickhowell is a picturesque market town in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
'Crug Hywel' as it is known in Welsh, nestles into the Usk Valley, sitting in the shadow of Table Mountain. It's a wonderful Georgian town, with a 13th century castle and 17th century bridge, boasting 13 arches on one side but only 12 on the other.
Our town has a variety of local businesses, many of them independant and family owned. It has places to stay, a renowned reputation for fine eating and a number of good coffee shops. It is quite simply a fabulous place to be.
