Description

Tegfan is a warm and welcoming bungalow in the village of Llangenny, a short drive from the picturesque town of Crickhowell, nestling in the wonderful Usk Valley. Tegfan offers plenty of space for a family or group of friends and is all on one level. As you enter through the lovely conservatory, you will undoubtedly be struck by the amazing views of the Black Mountains; the eastern range of the Brecon Beacons National Park. There is also gorgeous view from the open plan kitchen and living room, and of course the spacious garden. The owner, who lives nearby, has thoughtfully furnished and equipped the bungalow, and it offers spacious accommodation, with three bedrooms, a bathroom and additional walk in wet room, ideal for anyone less mobile.
Within the nearby Georgian town of Crickhowell, you will find a high street reflecting the character of a long lost era. John Evans described it as the "Glittering Jewel of the Vale" in his 19th-century book, ’The Garden of Wales’. Here, there are friendly independent shops and businesses selling local produce and products. There is also a wide selection of places to eat, from pubs and cafés to restaurants and a bistro. The remains of a 13th-century castle still stand in the town, whilst the Iron Age hillfort of Crug Hywel, better known as Table Mountain, looks down upon the town from the flanks of Pen Cerrig-calch to the north. The Beacons Way, which passes through the town, will take you steeply up there, although there plenty of more leisurely walks available, including beside the River Usk or along the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal in nearby Llangattock. The Crickhowell Walking Festival has become very well-established in recent years, or you might also want to catch the town’s Dragon Festival or the Green Man Music Festival in the Brecon Beacons.
There are events and activities in the area all year round, including festivals of food and drink, jazz and stargazing (the Beacons are an International Dark Skies Reserve). Adrenalin packed adventures nearby include caving, climbing, paragliding, cycling, horse riding and boating on Llangorse lake. A 30-minute drive will bring you to the Big Pit National Coal Museum, where you can go underground as the coalminers did, or visit the dinosaurs and show caves at Dan-yr-Ogof.
Check out the lovely towns of Brecon, Abergavenny, Monmouth and Usk, or visit Wales’ capital, Cardiff, which is an easy 60-minute drive. The city offers a startling range of unique attractions, top class entertainment and quality shopping. Fans of the cult show will enjoy a visit to the Dr Who Experience. Whatever your interest and whether you choose a short break or a longer stay, Tegfan will provide you with the perfect homely base to enjoy this wonderful part of Wales. Shop 1¼ mile, pub and restaurant 300 yards.

About the local area

The Brecon Beacons National Park covers over 500 square miles, from Llandeilo in the west to Hay on Wye in the east. The National Park contains a wide variety of spectacular scenery, with mountains, waterfalls, lakes and caves all in the area. The Brecon Beacons is also home to many species of bird life and wild plants.

In the Brecon Beacons National Park, you will find small towns, quaint villages and tiny hamlets sprinkled across the area. Ruined Welsh castles, Celtic standing stones and relics dating from the Neolithic and Bronze Age are to be found, some inscribed stones date from the 5th and 6th centuries.

The Brecon Beacons National Park reaches its highest peak at Pen y Fan, over 2900 feet. The 'Beacons' were the sites of ancient signal fires. Here the views are awe inspiring. At the eastern edge of the Brecon Beacons, the Black Mountains (not to be confused with the Black Mountain in the west), form the border between England and Wales, a border country of gentle landscapes, with easy access to the National Park.

The Brecon Beacons National Park is popular all year round with climbers, geologists, bird-watchers and botanists. There are all sorts of activities to choose from in the area, walking is very popular, not surprising with over one thousand miles of footpaths to choose from. There are guided walks, one way walks (catch the Brecon Bus to take you back to your starting point), even walks for those with limited mobility.

Visitors interested in cycling, horse riding, gliding, sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and fishing will find they are well catered for too. The Park also hosts events throughout the year and is home to many interesting attractions if your feet get a bit tired!
