    We absolutely loved staying at The Forge. As our first cottage in a 5 week UK tour, it had everything we needed. The cottage was comfortable, cosy, well equipped and an easy spot from which to do some walks in the Brecon Beacons

    Comfortable place to stay, didn't actually meet the owners which may have been nice. Bathroom floor was damp for a while - I assume this was whilst he place warmed up, it was January and if we were the first in for a while... Liked the layout but not sure about the 4 poster in the bedroom (where else would it be I hear you ask?!), I think it detracts from the room and tends to get in the way as you walk round the end of the bed. The facilities were good (bigger TV might help?), it was warm and overall a nice place to stay.

    The Forge has plenty of space for two people and the layout has been well thought out. It has been tastefully decorated. It is modern but still has a cosy feel. The inside of the cottage was very clean but the outside area could do with some work to make it more attractive - just some flowers would help. The mattress is comfortable but sits below the level of the wooden frame in which it sits. This makes it awkward to get in and out of bed. There is no blind for the bedroom sky light which would be a problem in summer (this has been mentioned in the visitor book several times). The appliances were adequate but the TV was very small and the bathroom lacked an extractor fan or an openable window which meant it steamed up very quickly. The lid for the dishwasher tabs is missing and the lid for the bin keeps falling off.

    Comfortable and we were greeted with fresh flowers, eggs, milk and bread which was a nice touch. However the cottage lacks the basics like internet and phone reception. The television in the lounge is too small and the one in the bedroom was about the same size as our laptop screen. The shower is ok however the screen leaks. The bed is not comfortable. The wooden 'four poster' frame makes getting in and out of the bed awkward. Some information regarding rubbish collection days and local shops in the area would be handy. We stayed for a week (Aug-Sep 17)and so the washing machine was handy however there is no dryer. Would have preferred a dryer to a dish washer or freezer. Overall we enjoyed our stay however it could be better with a few tweaks.
