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.

We were disappointed that we were unable to connect to the Wifi all week. It was very inconvenient. That said, this is a nice little cottage in a beautiful location right on the river, with everything (else) that we needed for a comfortable stay.More
