Échanges avec les voyageurs
It may not always be possible for the family to immediately meet guests when they arrive, so there is a secure key-safe for apartment access.
However, a member of the family/ household will introduce themselves to the guests during their stay.
The family is always busy looking after all aspects of the Estate and family life, but the household and estate staff will always be available by telephone.
As this is a working family home and the family are very keen nature lovers, they have a pet dog and keep chickens at the back of the family home and have a hand reared duck who potters around in his own time. Please do look under your car! His home is our home, so, he's just a little unusual!
We have added guidelines in the apartment and also provide a detailed document of what the apartment offers in terms of amenities. On booking please contact me and I will send through via a word document. And a map of how to get here. Thank you!

I live in the main house on the Estate with my husband, Harry, 2 children, Blodwyn the terrier, a number of chickens and 2 guinea pigs! We manage the running of the Estate from events, farming, filming, festivals, outdoor productions and more. The Estate has been in our family since 1826. We are used to guests staying in the house so our accommodation has every comfort you would expect and a lot more.
At the moment I am researching the history of the Estate and archives and also looking into new projects involving antiques and upcycling furniture. I have just finished this apartment and 2 holiday cottages and my next project is our tower over the river as well as the stable block into an events rooms.
You will so enjoy all the walking, events, pubs etc and the community of Crickhowell during your stay. And the views from all aspects of the apartment and our beautiful, private, historical Estate.
