We took our bikes and our kayak and made the most of the canal/ towpath outside the door. Our welcome hamper was delicious and added a touch of luxury to our arrival. So much to explore locally we would love to come back as the cottage is a wonderful retreat from day to day life.

We really enjoyed our stay at Canal Boat college . The facilities were great and well thought through with the welcome pack giving a really special touch to our stay. Location is beautiful with fantastic views and although a steep walk to the village itself, we found some lovely places to eat whilst there .

Canal Cottage is situated right by the canal with miles of (flat) walking on your doorstep, which can be a welcome relief after climbing the hills in the beautiful countryside nearby! The cottage is very tastefully decorated, and is perfect for couples or families with up to 2 children. Everything is provided, towels, bedding etc, We visited with 2Read more dogs. The garden is mostly secure but if you have very inquisitive pets they may hop over the wall to see next doors chickens. Hide

A very pleasant location on a quiet canal side. Cottage facilities overall excellent. Pretty walking countryside surrounds, with easy access to Abergavenny for Thursday artisan markets. Do hire a day boat from local canal boat hire place. For a relaxing time go along the canal in dappled sunshine listening to birdsong. Take along the cottages hampeRead morer (filled with your own goodies) to moor up for lunch, a true Wind in the Willows experience! Looking forwards to visiting the area again soon. Hide

Very comfortable cottage in a fantastic location next to the pretty canal and lovely small town of Crickhowell on the edge of the Beacons. Even our teenagers were happy!

Warm, comfortable, spacious, clean and magnificent views of Table top and Sugar Loaf. Weather needs improving, lot of hail and snow about, precipitation of some kind almost constant. Walking amazing, the canal outside the front door gives you 32 miles of flatness!
