Cottage -
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
Glasbury-on-Wye, Powys, Wales
Thorn Cottage dates from the 16th century has retained many original features; wooden beams and low ceilings (for visitors over 6ft tall, please mind your heads). Set in the most delightful cottage garden with wonderful views towards the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains, the cottage is believed to have been home to a nail maker and was the first to be built in the hamlet surrounding Ciltwrch Common, this is a perfect place to stay if you want to have the peace of a country cottage yet be near to Hay-on-Wye and the River Wye.

Thorn Cottage is a delightful cottage with a beautiful garden - much loved by us and our 2 small dogs! The only sounds you can hear are birds, chickens, goats, sheep and cows....usually not all at the same time though! It's set up high above Glasbury on Wye and has lovely views of the Black Mountains in the distance. It's convenient for Hay on Wye and Brecon.
If you stay here - do try lunch at The River Café and Foyles Restaurant down in Glasbury - both are very good.
The only unusual thing about Thorn Cottage is they do not provide bath towels - you have to bring your own.
A delightful place to stay - and we'd definitely go back again!
