“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 3 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

An excellent cottage in an excellent location. Everything was catered for, the best equipped kitchen I've ever come across in a rental. It was worm regardless of the temperature outside. In Crickhowell you have a choice of some cracking restaurants just book early.

“Lovely Cottage,Perfect Location”
Reviewed 20 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Ramblers Rest is a beautiful cottage in a beautiful setting in the heart of Crickhowell within a minutes walk of the high street.
The accommodation was spotless and the garden just devine.
Condiments were available in case you forgot something.
It was a lovely surprise to find milk in the fridge and wine on the table to greet us.
We would highly recommend staying here.
Christina was extremely helpful and friendly.

“A lovely cottage in a great location”
Reviewed 15 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed at the cottage for a week, and spent it split between sight seeing, walking and generally relaxing. Crickhowell is a lovely town, and this cottage is in a lovely part of it, close enough to allow walks into town to collect cakes and coffee. We spent as much time cooking as we did eating in the excellent local hostelries, and the kitchen is very well equipped. The cottage is warm and cosy with plenty of hot water for when you get back from the hills. A wonderful find.

“We will be back!”
Reviewed 18 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We found this lovely cottage when looking for accommodation in Crickhowell, and what a find! Cosy, clean, and extremely well equipped for self catering - although Crickhowell does have lots of pubs and cafes too, all within a few minutes walk from the cottage. The garden is a delight - sitting having breakfast and listening to the birds singing is very relaxing, and we were very lucky with the beautiful sunny weather. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would recommend Ramblers Rest Cottage to our friends and relations. We will be back - maybe in the winter, to enjoy the warm central heating!

“Best cottage ever”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Beautifull cottage with a lovely garden. Very well equipt. Very nice location in a small town wih shops and restaurants, but also near the river Usk where you can swim and from the cottage you can make beautifull walks. The owners are very nice and friendly.
