Winner of the Best High Street in Britain in the Great British High Street Awards, Crickhowell and the surrounding villages are highly regarded amongst the walking community and are a haven for both walkers and tourists alike. The town is famed for its family run and independent businesses including several grocers, a butcher, a delicatessen, a baker, Wales’s first zero waste shop, and a newsagent/post office. In addition, there are several individual boutiques, cafes, a book shop which attracts famous authors to its doors, and a florist, plus of course Cric, the tourist information centre.
Crickhowell also benefits from dentist surgeries, a health centre, a garage, and the iconic Webbs hardware store. There are numerous public houses, gastro pubs and restaurants, and no description of Crickhowell would be complete without mentioning The Bear which has been serving customers since 1432 and stands in a prominent position at the head of the high street in the centre of this bustling town. The area is also well served for schools for all ages, both of which are fêted in both the local area and further afield too. Children enjoy the facilities of schools in both Llangattock and Crickhowell but do travel further afield to Christ College in Brecon and the Monmouth Haberdashers’ schools which are easily accessible.
For more comprehensive shopping and leisure facilities, the historic market town of Abergavenny is just 7 miles away and offers a wide selection of boutique style shops, grocery and newsagent stores, supermarkets, and many well-known high street shops. Abergavenny also hosts a market several times a week. The town has its own cinema and leisure centre as well as several eateries for evening entertainment. Abergavenny railway station has regular services into central London via Newport, whilst road links at the Hardwick roundabout give easy access to the motorway for Bristol, Birmingham, the Southwest and London and “A” routes for Monmouth, Hereford, Cwmbran, and Cardiff.
