Location

Here in south east Powys we have all the scenic and cultural blessings of Wales within easy distance from the border, Crickhowell, or Crug Hwyel, is easily recognisable in any language, so just follow the signs once you get past Abergavenny

Head 5 miles west from Abergavenny on the A40 towards the afternoon sunshine that warms Crickhowell!

 

The A40 trunk road takes you through the town. 200 metres past the Bear Hotel, turn left down the A4077 opposite the Shell garage (open 24 hours!)

400 metres further down the A4077, as you approach traffic lights for the Usk bridge, you will see brown signs for the Riverside caravan site on your right.  The parking for Cordell House is immediately next to the main road, so turn hard right at this turning into the space between two birch trees.

 

The red door for Cordell House opens onto the main road just above your parking space. The door bell has a nice posh ring!

 

(The bridge over the River Usk is just 100 metres beyond Cordell House. If you find yourself coming up from Cardiff way over the bridge, our turning is the first on the left after the bridge.)

 

Unless you are ‘on a mission’ your next day or so will feature the delights of Crickhowell town. Head first  to the bridge, then via the Bridge End pub up Bridge Street. Turn left at the police station and Crickhowell’s shops, pubs and cafes will appear ahead of you. For those who would like a gentler slope, turn left from the door and head up New Road. Turn right just past the church, keep walking past the library and you will find yourself in the High Street. The locals are rightly proud of Crickhowell and will be delighted to give guidance on finding your way around.

Things to Do

Whether you are an adventure seeker, a music lover, an art aficionado, a foody or just want to surround yourself with nature in all its beauty, Crickhowell and the surrounding area has it all for you.

 

March sees the town host its very own walking festival, with a range of walks for all abilities taking in the breathtaking beauty the area. Visit in late Spring for the chance to see the bluebells of Coed Cefn (named one of the UK's top ten Bluebell woods by The Guardian) in full bloom. Art and culture lovers are well catered for in May with the local Open Studios weekend and Hay Literature festival  within easy reach.

 

The Royal Welsh Show is held in July, around 40 minutes' drive through beautiful countryside. August sees Glanusk estate on the outskirts of town play host to the internationally renowned Green Man music festival, the site is a relaxing walk or a short taxi ride away for those for whom festival camping isn't appealing.

 

September sees nearby market town Abergavenny become a mecca for food and drink lovers, the town's food festival, now well into its second decade, brings together chefs and producers of fine food from all over the globe for a culinary celebration, although with a wide and varied range of restaurants in the area, including Michelin starred The Walnut Tree, food lovers are well catered for year-round.

 

Not to be outdone by Hay, Crickhowell now hosts its own literary festival in October. Established in 2015, the Festival is still just a baby, but is already attracting some heavyweight names from the worlds of prose and poetry.

 

For the past few years the town has run a successful Christmas market in the first week of December, with local craftspeople and food producers selling beautiful hand made gifts alongside the town's famous array of wonderful independent shops.
