Ferryman's Cottage

Cottage -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Glasbury-on-Wye, Powys, Wales
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.
