Self-catering in the Black Mountains in Wales - relaxing cottages breaks.

This is the hidden, but easily accessible, Wales that beguiles visitors with its majestic vistas, alternating between wide open hillscapes with big skies, and lush, wooded slopes. As soon as you arrive, you are blown away by the breathtaking scenery, which is heightened by an air of mystery and otherworldliness. Ancient stone farmsteads, beautiful little churches, and defiant Norman castles describe the history of this magical borderland. It is a haven for foodies, with some much-lauded restaurants, local farmers' markets and food festivals. The Black Mountains are embraced by the towns of Abergavenny, Crickhowell, and Hay-on-Wye, with their delightful blend of modern shops and restaurants and old-world charm. Hay is the famed, original 'town of books' which boasts many bookshops (including the largest second hand book shop in the world), and an annual literature festival that draws the biggest names in writing to its rural site nestled amongst the green hills just outside the town. Abergavenny is the 'Gateway to Wales', beautifully positioned in a bowl of mountains. Lively inhabitants have made this a little town to be proud of, from its annual Food Festival to its range of independent shops - The Art Shop, Abergavenny Music, and The Cook's Galley, to name a few. The Angel Hotel is a good place to go for a drink, a coffee, a meal, or - best of all - its fabulously delicious teas. Pretty Crickhowell is a bustling place between the Black Mountains and the Brecons - perfectly positioned for outdoor fun. It is also really well-equipped with good independent cafes and shops, including Cashel's the butcher/deli.

The area attracts walkers for casual strolls, or for more serious hill treks; cyclists, canoeists, pony-trekkers and sightseers. The views are some of the most spectacular in Britain and can be enjoyed on foot, on horseback (pony-trekking is a must), or even from your car - a short drive from Hay brings you to a stunning lookout point on Hay Bluff. Continuing your journey through and down the range, you emerge at the site of Llanthony Abbey, a wonderfully atmospheric ancient ruin (with a pub!). Binding together many of these places is Offa's Dyke, one of the most picturesque walking trails imaginable - historically significant and wending its way through really beautiful unspoilt countryside.

This is a place to relax and take stock, or to enjoy wilder adventures in the shadow of the unique spectacle of the Black Mountains. We hope to welcome you soon.
