The property

Sitting in a prominent position lies The Maiflour Bakery, a charming duplex apartment above the owner's bakery in the centre of Crickhowell, Powys, where you'll wake up in the morning to the smell of freshly baked bread.

Ideal for a family or group of friends looking to explore the nearby Brecon Beacons or the bustling town of Crickhowell, the property boasts four bedrooms with an open-plan living and dining space.

Arriving at the property, stepping through the traditional arched alley and up to the first floor, the kitchen welcomes you, fit with an electric oven, gas hob and a dishwasher, certain to entice any budding chefs of the group.

From here the cosy snug, or affectionately known as the cwtch room, invites you to snuggle up in front of the Smart TV, while the sitting room hosting another Smart TV, is available for the group to catch up on the day's events or enjoy a delicious meal at the dining table.

Moving through the apartment, the first bedroom, a double, rests on the first floor and offers fantastic views across the town centre and over to the Brecon Beacons.

Climbing the stairs to the second floor the remaining three bedrooms invite you to retire after a long day of exploring the surrounding areas; there is a king-size, again offering delightful views, a twin room, and a twin zip/link, for a more flexible sleep arrangement throughout your stay.

Staying on the second floor, the family bathroom offers a bath, shower over and a walk-in shower as well as a basin and WC where you can freshen up between activities; back on the first floor there is a handy cloakroom with a basin and WC, so you will not be short of places to prepare for your day.

Give the chef of the group a break by heading out to eat one of the local eateries, In Crickhowell you’ll find The Bear, and The Dragon, and in Abergavenny, The Walnut Tree, The Angel, and The Hardwick.

There are also a whole host of bistros, cafes and Indian and Chinese takeaway options in both towns.
