Edenstone Homes - The Green, NP8
Overlooking the Usk Valley, an exclusive development of 3,4 and 5 bedroom homes off Llangenny Lane in Crickhowell.
The Green is only a short level walk from the town centre. Crickhowell was established around its historic Norman Castle. The acclaimed Bear Hotel was built in the 15th century and was an important coaching inn in bygone days. When the bridge over the River Usk was built in the 18th century, the market town prospered and became an important river crossing point. Today, Crickhowell offers a range of quality independent shops, pubs and restaurants attracting locals and tourists alike. With high quality primary and secondary schools, the community thrives with a vast range of activities, including musical, artistic and dramatic groups and societies.
For those seeking a more active lifestyle, Crickhowell’s leisure amenities include the Community Sports Centre and a variety of sports clubs, including cricket, rugby and tennis. The striking and contrasting landscape of the area offers cyclists and walkers the opportunity to tackle challenging routes or take gentler paths at a more leisurely pace. The town and the local area also play host to a diversity of local, national and international events, large and small, including the annual Green Man Festival at the nearby Glanusk Estate and at Abergavenny, the 2016 National Eisteddfod.
In South Powys, the market town of Crickhowell is on the border of the Brecon Beacons National Park, the Black Mountains and the rolling countryside of Monmouthshire. Close to the A40, The Green is only 6 miles from Abergavenny and 14 miles from Brecon, which with the nearby A465 Heads of the Valleys road, makes the development an excellent base for commuting or leisure travel. Crickhowell has a wealth of proudly independent local traders, with Abergavenny boasting a wide variety of supermarkets, national shopping brands and a mix of eclectic shops. Abergavenny also features the internationally renowned Food Festival every September.
To the west, a picturesque drive follows the Usk River to Brecon, host to the Jazz Festival in August. To the north, Hay-on-Wye, following the edge of the Black Mountains, is a book lovers’ paradise with its International Literary and Music Festival each May. Further afield, the A40 to the east provides access to the A449 for Newport and the M4 to Cardiff or Bristol in about an hour or north towards the county town of Monmouth. The Green is surrounded by a plethora of outdoor options. The spectacular mountains contrast the easy pace of the Monmouthshire - Brecon Canal, fishing on the River Usk or a range of watersports on the lake at Llangorse.
