Other accommodation near Crickhowell

In Powys, Mid Wales one can find the quaint and beautiful village of Crickhowell. With a population of just over twenty eight hundred citizens, Crickhowell won't soon be mistaken for a burgeoning metropolis. What it lacks in size, though, it more than makes up for in natural splendor and visual grandeur. The beautiful River Usk practically runs right through Crickhowell and the city is flanked on either side by the majestic Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons National Park.

With such natural beauty strewn all around it is little wonder that the city is one of the more popular tourist destinations in the country. Many bed-and-breakfasts dot the landscape to allow comfortable lodging for people who come to visit the Black Mountains or the Brecon Beacons and there is a vast slew of offerings available to tourists: Fly fishing, hang gliding, mountain biking, and rock climbing are just a few of the many amenities available to anybody willing to explore the gorgeous countryside.

One of the largest attractions in Crickhowell's tourist repartee, however, continues to be the much famed Crickhowell Castle. This imposing structure was built during the 1120s by Norman lords and has seen droves of combat since. Sadly, the forces of Owain Glyndwr attacked and destroyed Crickhowell Castle during their march to conquer England. Visitors can still see the ruins of this esteemed fortress, however, and anybody who comes to Crickhowell and passes up this opportunity is seriously missing out on an astonishing experience.

The vast amount of spectacle and splendor scattered throughout Crickhowell help to ensure that the town's residents are given a healthy respect and appreciation of the majesty and wonder of nature. It is little wonder, then, that many respected and admired explorers and navigators hail from the town. Chief among these would no doubt be the magnanimous Sir George Everest. His home in Crickhowell is now a historical site as well as a hotel known as "The Manor". His greatest accomplishment is of course the discovery of the mountain that bears his name. Young people who reside in Crickhowell and are looking to follow in Everest's sizable footsteps are fortunate in that the city is also home to one of the best education systems in Wales. Crickhowell High School is in the top ten percent of graduation levels and it is also the fourth best performing school in all of Wales.

Crickhowell is one of the most interesting cities in the country for any number of reasons. Whether you love history, nature, or a combination of both you will find much to love in this gorgeous and unique town. Filled to the brim with ancient churches and statuesque castles, Crickhowell is the epitome of a historical Welsh town and, as such, it should be visited by anybody interested in this little slice of England. A visit to Crickhowell needn't strictly be an educational experience, though; anybody looking to relax and melt away in the visual grandeur of Crickhowell's Black Mountains or its many parks can do so without having to learn a single thing!
