The main living room at Trecastell near Llangoed is dominated by a large, plain fireplace that is well equipped for the practical, day-to-day tasks carried out in the space. A number of large pans and kettles in the hearth area would have been used for cooking meals. A small gas-powered camping stove sits on a ledge to the left of the main fire grate, and is shown heating a water canister that has a tap, allowing hot water to be provided without the need to light the main fire. A fine wire has been suspended above the fireplace, which was probably used to dry clothes.
