We've just had a wonderful week staying at Cantref Forge, just 2 miles outside Brecon. The accommodation was truly excellent, couldn't have been bettered and our stay was made perfect by the stunning views and warm welcome from Nicola, the owner. The location was perfect for several mountain and canalside walks; visiting Crickhowell, Tretower Castle, canoeing on the river Wye and much more. Thank you.-
Mr & Mrs Scott
