Gliffaes Road, Crickhowell, NP8 1RH,
Wales, United Kingdom
A charming country-house hotel that towers above the river Usk as it pours through the valley below. In summer, the sitting room bar opens onto a large terrace, where you can sit in the sun and soak in the view – red kites circling above the water, sheep grazing majestic hills. You're in 35 peaceful acres of formal lawns and mature woodland. Inside, interiors pack a punch. Afternoon tea is laid out in a sitting room of panelled walls and family portraits, while logs crackle in a grand fireplace. This is a fishing hotel, one of the best, and fishermen often gather in the bar for tall tales and a quick drink at the end of the day. Eventually, they spin through to the restaurant and dig into seasonal food (the hotel is part of the Slow Food Movement) – goats' cheese soufflé, lemon sole, plum and cherry crumble... Bedrooms above are in country-house style with smart fabrics and carpets, all mod cons, a sofa if there's room; others are in the coach house annexe. Several have river views, a couple have small balconies, one has a claw-foot bath that overlooks the front lawn.
