About the neighbourhood
Badgers End Cottage sits in a country lane which ends with a pathway whereby you can walk though an avenue of ancient trees into the nearby town to collect your bread if you wish from the local bakery which is open from 5am onwards! The views are spectacular to the Welsh mountains and the people in the area are friendly and welcoming. You can walk from the cottage into the Forest or down to the local 12C Ostrich Inn which serves real ales, fine wine and terrific food. The area abounds with wildlife and you sleep to the occasional sound of owls hooting, wild boar grunting down the lane and the badgers rustling in the woodland. This is overtaken during the day by peace, tranquility and silence!
Getting around
To see the sights you need a car though there are plenty of other ways of transportation to see this Royal Forest. Bicycles are fun, canoeing the river is awesome, riding (horse or llama) through the forest blends in with the wildlife and walking is terrific! The bus comes to the bottom of the lane once a week and goes 5 miles to town!
