2 Mill Street is ideal if you want a cottage holiday without a car. The bus stop in Crickhowell is 3 minutes’ walk from 2 Mill Street. The X43 bus service goes directly to Abergavenny town centre and Railway Station. London Paddington is two and a half hours by train (change at Newport) and Manchester is the same journey time (no changes). Bristol Parkway is 1 hour away from Abergavenny. You can get everything you need for your stay in Crickhowell’s local shops. As our reviews will tell you, there are great walks from the front door.
If you come by car, 2 Mill Street is 10 minutes from dual carriageway that links directly to the motorway network. As a guide, Junction 24 of the M4 (Coldra and Celtic Manor Resort) is half an hour’s drive. The Severn Bridge/M49 takes 40 minutes and the M4/M5 junction outside Bristol is less than an hour away. The toll on the Severn Bridge coming in to Wales is being abolished in December 2018.
