Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
The Brecon Beacons have long been a popular destination for walkers and thrill seekers, as the rugged and beautiful scenery makes for excellent caving and canoeing as well as rambling.
The Ferryman's Cottage was fully restored in 2002 on the foundations of an 18th century ruin. Parking is in the lane traditionally measured to the width of two and a half cows. The cottage looks across the river to open fields and the old Vicarage.

The Powys/Brecon Beacons region
The Brecon Beacons have long been a popular destination for walkers and thrill seekers, as the rugged and beautiful scenery makes for excellent caving and canoeing as well as rambling. Wales itself has a lot to explore but to start in and around the Brecon Beacons is a good start with excellent facilities for those out to relax or those looking for adventure. The Black Mountains are also close with good walking and biking.
The nearest town to Glasbury is Hay-on-Wye, about 3 miles away. Hay is famous for being the 'Town of Books' (37 second hand bookshops at the last count, including the world's largest), and for its annual star-studded Literary Festival each May half term. Brecon is a 10 minute drive, and has a leisure centre and a theatre Theatr Brycheiniog. It also has a cathedral, St. David's.Hereford is a 30 minute drive and is worth a visit to see the Cathedral with its Chained Library and Mappa Mundi Exhibition. You can also visit the Bulmers Cider Museum, and do a tour of the Bulmers factory.
Glasbury has a canoe centre with a café . It is also close to the Wye Valley walk.
