My mother (age 86) and I have made several trips to Wales over the years, and I recently became concerned about her ability to navigate steps in the B&B where we had been staying. Mike Davies, of Dragon Tours, arranged for us to stay this time at Mortimer House in Crickhowell, and we loved it! We were greeted with a welcome pack that included fresh local bread & cider, and the refrigerator was stocked with butter--even ice cubes in the freezer! We stayed in the ground floor apartment, and it was lovely! Very spacious & nicely organized, with access to a beautiful patio area off the kitchen, the apartment offered two large bedrooms, a bath, living & dining areas, and a well-appointed kitchen, which included a washer & dryer (which I could not figure out, but didn't need. There are, however, available instructions on all the appliances). The wi-fi was also a welcome addition, since I brought my tablet with me. We had the opportunity to view the other apartments available as well, and they were equally beautiful.
I particularly appreciated the location, within easy walking distance to shops, the bank, and the pub at the Bear. I would highly recommend Mortimer House to anyone who's looking for a well-appointed vacation rental. I could very easily live there permanently!
