Forge Cottage - sleeps 5

Forge Cottage in Brecon sleeps 5 people. Forge Cottage in Brecon is a canal side cottage with gorgeous views from the windows across the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal. The private cottage garden is a lovely place to sit in the morning sunshine watching the attractively painted traditional canal boats and the water fowl or to enjoy a glass of wine as the sun sets. The River Usk is nestled in the water meadows just two fields below the canal; this is reached over a stone bridge and down a green lane. Less than a mile's stroll along the canal tow path takes you either to the village of Talybont or in the other direction to Pencelli. Both villages have local pubs with food.

Forge Cottage at Cross Oak is a most attractive house built in the 1880s on a site originally dating back to the eighteenth century. As the name indicates, it was originally connected with an old forge where all the local farmers would bring their horses to be shod. The house has always been in the same family ownership with pictures on the walls showing how the exterior of the cottage has not changed very much over the years. This is a good location for anyone wishing to explore the area, it is only a few minutes to the lane up to Talybont Reservoir, The Glyn mountain road and Blaen Glynn waterfalls and there are foot paths up to the Peaks of the Brecon Beacons.
