Perched in a truly wonderful location on the Llangattock Hillside, the views from Rowan Cottage are breath taking! Dating back to 1580, it's hard to imagine the generations that have stood in the same unique cottage admiring the stunning vista of the Black Mountains....none of which will have enjoyed quite so much comfort!

Restored by the current owners, romance and decadence are very much at the forefront of the design. A fabulous modern wood burner, with a traditional Aga, highlight the tasteful juxtaposition of the very new with the seriously old! There are thick stone cottage walls, exposed oak beams, flat screen television, Wi-Fi, DVD and iPOD dock, as well as one of the best romantic bedrooms in our cottage collection.

The oak spiral staircase leads from the cosy sitting room, up to a luxurious love nest, complete with king-size bed, marshmallow duvet and a fantastic modern bathroom, making lazing in bed totally guilt free!

Should you grow tired of shutting yourself away from the world, 55,000 acres of common land is right outside your front door, with numerous walking and cycling trails. The Brecon & Monmouth Canal is at the bottom of the hill, perfect for a gentle stroll into nearby Crickhowell for the morning newspaper and a delicious artisan coffee in Latte-Da, our favourite local coffee shop.

Romance, luxury and relaxation are guaranteed in this fabulous holiday cottage!

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

This cottage is the most amazing place to unwind. We came here with our dog which is perfect for lovely walks. The view is outstanding and you truley get the feelimg of being away from it all. The cottage is well equipped and very comfortable, we particularly enjoyed the log burner. We will definitely be back!

Absolutely wonderful cottage, the view across the valley was amazing. The cottage itself was brilliant, clean, cosy and decorated beautifully. The kitchen has everything you need and I loved using the aga. The living area was warm and cosy with a lovely wood burner. Upstairs the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was spacious and well appointed.
