Crickhowell is not far from us, and we go through it every time we head for Pembrokeshire. So pleased it now has an award!

Crickhowell is a lovely place - wonderful surrounding hills - we often take our campervan there smile

Only 15 minutes drive from Crick is a place I love, as did my daughters and grandchildren

Well done Crickhowell! We have spent many happy hours walking all the hills in the area and love it there. Keep trying other places but always have to return to Brecon Beacons and Crickhowell

We often stop to eat in Crickhowell on our way to Pembrokeshire, always preferring to go the pretty route through the Beacons. Itโ€™s a lovely town. My DH spent a lot of time at Llangorse as a boy, Annie. His grandparents lived at Llanwrtyd Wells, and they spent summer holidays there.

annie we have a very small black and white photo of Mr C and one of his brothers rowing on Llangorse Lake. Goodness knows how many years old it is, over 50 I would guess. Not sure if rowing boats are allowed now. Itโ€™s a beautiful place.

cornergran, lots of boats , not sure about rowing, I use to row there, and canoe.

Greyduster i use to stay in Llanwrtwd when my friend was the parish priest for some years.

Grannybags, I could never leave the Beacons , every morning when I open the curtains there they are , sometimes grey, sometimes purple, somtimes white

We had a lovely family holiday in the area when the boys were young. Love Crickhowell and sad that we never went back there.

Oh it looks so lovely - congratulations Crickhowell!! Never been there, but I'm so tempted.
We stayed in a little village not far from Laugharne a few years ago, and visited Brecon Beacons. We took a trip on the Brecon Mountain Railway and it was breathtaking, such a beautiful area. You're very lucky to live in such wonderful countryside Annie
