Le logement

This apartment is situated on the East side of the main house on The Glanusk Estate. It has it's own private access and a separate boot room big enough to store bikes etc. The apartment is like a home from home. It is so cosy and has everything you want for a weekend away, peace, comfort, views and so much more.

The whole apartment is equipped with modern fittings and furnished with antique furniture and decorated with ancestral family portraits and oil paintings/photographs of the Estate.

The bedroom features a large antique four poster bed with new high quality bedding, offering everyone a peaceful night's sleep. With window aspects East and South, guests can wake up to the warm morning sun and mountain views.

The living room has its own super-fast wireless internet access, antique dining room table and large comfortable sofa. The bespoke kitchen is handmade to a specific design by artisans on the Estate and designed by Iona.

There are cards and games to enjoy so you can relax. We entertain in the house and know what guests like. There are history books for you to enjoy to give you an insight of managing and maintaining an historical Estate dating back to 1826, when it was built.

There is a microwave oven, toaster, kettle and a double induction hob. Tea/coffee, ham, bread, cheese, milk, butter, mustards, jams, marmite etc etc and our own home grown eggs and so much more is all provided. So you have your own continental breakfast just in case you arrive late and have not had time to shop. There is a large television with freeview and Amazon Fire TV access. You will need your Amazon Fire TV code for access.

The bathroom has a shower unit over and there is a separate bathroom available too. We provide dressing gowns, shampoo/conditioner, shower gel, bubble bath, hair dryer and so many extras to the point if you forget anything, we hope we have provided for you.

In the garden area behind the apartment, there is a table bench where guests can sit, relax and enjoy the breathtaking views of the surrounding black mountains. A perfect space for afternoon tea and/or an evening barbecue!

For those who want to enjoy The Glanusk Estate, there is a permissive path taking walkers through the Estate grounds. For additional enjoyment, there are many rambling opportunities for walkers, wildlife fans and nature watchers.

The Estate is totally enclosed in 400 acres of private parkland which you can enjoy and share what we see and live. It is known as The Jewel in the Usk Valley. It is truly stunning, romantic and so very special and we know you will feel the same.

Accès des voyageurs

Guests only have access to the apartment and not any other part of the family home.
There is plenty of parking space next to the separate entrance of the apartment.
Within the entrance area guests have space to keep bikes, outdoor shoes and outdoor clothing.

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.

Autres remarques

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!

The place was great, exactly what we were after for a long weekend break. A lovely setting and a really well appointed apartment. Iona was really helpful before and during our stay with lots of useful information. We were also treated to a nicely stocked fridge that provided us our breakfast for a couple of mornings, and an afternoon picnic set up for us down by the river. I would highly recommend this and look forward to returning.

The Guards Room is a comfortable, self-contained apartment with bedroom, sitting-room, kitchenette and bathroom. The Glanusk Estate and this area of Wales is very beautiful and a little remote so you'll need some form of transport to get about. Iona and her family are the perfect hosts - giving advice if needed or just letting you potter around and steep in the beauty of the surroundings.

Iona is truly the most perfect host. The location, in the heart of the Brecon Beacons is both spectacular and peaceful. The rooms are beautifully furnished and Iona provides everything you could possibly need on arrival including eggs, milk, cheese, ham and above all, a lovely warm welcome. We shall definitely return.

We had a wonderful two night stay here in November for my partner's birthday. The location is great for the mountain biking/horse riding/walking we planned to do and the estate itself is beautiful and great to explore. Iona was the perfect host - really helpful and easily contactable when we had any questions. She made us feel very welcome and sent lots of information about the history and area in advance which was really interesting. We loved all her friendly animals too. The apartment was perfect - a great size but also really cosy and beautifully decorated space with some lovely antiques from the main house. We were so comfy there and were provided with everything we could possibly have needed for our stay including delicious eggs, cheese, and bread all locally sourced. I'd thoroughly recommend this place - a lovely bit of comfort and luxury in the most beautiful location - we will definitely be back!

My partner and I had a wonderful break at the Glanusk Estate. The apartment was delightful - beautifully appointed, with very friendly neighbouring ducks! Fantastic views, and ideally situated for lots of great walks - highly recommend the Pen y Fan trek. Iona was a wonderful host, providing lots of helpful information, and stocking up the little kitchen for us too! Would highly recommend this lovely little place.

The flat is so beautifully and thoughtfully equipped, and the area around the house and beyond quite extraordinarily beautiful. We especially enjoyed walking through the grounds of the estate to and along the canal.

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.
