“Perfect for our young family”
Reviewed 10 November 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We stayed at Ramblers Rest with our 5 year old and 3 year old back in Feb. It was perfect for us. Fantastic location down by the river with a short walk into town. The cottage was VERY clean and warm and VERY well kitted out. Little touches like plastic beakers for the kids and kiddies outdoor chairs made our two feel welcome and relaxed, and the Cider and biscuits on arrival made us feel welcome too! Having lived in Crickhowell I know how parking can be there but it was never a problem. The garden was ideal for our little ones, very sheltered and very, very safe and secure. Thank you Christina and sorry for the very late review (maybe I was trying to keep your lovely place a secret!!).

“Fantastic cottage in a fantastic town”
Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The cottage is a lovely place to stay. A great garden, it's a perfect place to read in the sun. It's a very relaxing setting. We really enjoyed our stay. There's the slight issue of wifi but with a hotspot just outside the front door it's a very minor one.

“Total Perfection”
Reviewed 29 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My husband and I stayed at Ramblers Rest for 4 nights but this was not long enough as it is without doubt one of the loveliest cottages we have ever stayed in. Its spacious, beautifully maintained, so well equipped there is nothing that has not been provided. The garden is beautiful and a real bonus to the cottage. The owners are a lovely couple and are there if you need them and if not you are left alone. If you are looking for the perfect accommodation in one of the loveliest towns in the area then stop looking as you will not find anything to compare to Ramblers Rest.

“Refreshed and recharged”
Reviewed 25 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We arrived much later than we had planned and Christina and Peter were very accommodating. We found lovely welcome gifts and we all found the cottage cosy and charming. It was really a home from home and the cottage is full of character. Warm when it needs to be and a good sized garden at the rear Safe for young children. Crickhowell is a great village - with obvious community spirit and well located in terms of walks and family activities. The Number 18 Café does yummy vegetarian food, especially the Glamburger.

“Wonderful cottage, and perfect location. A tonic!”
Reviewed 22 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

My partner and I spent 5 days in the cottage a couple of weeks ago and I'm already planning my next visit.
It was a very easy journey from our home in London and very easy to arrange our arrival with Peter and Christina, who were super helpful.
The cottage is perfect for couples or small families and is located ideally for both the pubs and shops of town (try out the amazing chocolate shop) and perfectly positioned for some beautiful walks. It was warm and cosy to return to after walking and we were more than happy to stay in with the selection of board games on the one rainy day we saw.
Would heartily recommend both Crickhowell and the cottage, and can't wait to get back. Thank you!
