The little Mid-Wales town of Brecon nestles within the Brecon Beacons National Park at the confluence of two rivers and overlooked by a Norman Castle. Surrounded by an area of outstanding natural beauty and a wealth of wonderful wildlife, this quaint town is so full of life it’s as enticing as the moorland communities it serves. Visitors will find a wide choice of self-catering accommodation in and around Brecon, many of them within easy reach of some stunning moorland and countryside walks.
There are many opportunities for outdoor and leisure activities, such as trekking over the wild countryside which offers amazing views and valleys. Brecon is a market town, famous for its historic cathedral and its annual Jazz Festival in August for some of the best Jazz music around. Theatre Brycheiniog provides a popular range of cultural and entertainment events all year round.
The Brecon Beacons beckon guests to Gludy House, a luxurious rural cottage in Brecon with stunning countryside views. Set in the national park, the grand cottage welcomes special celebrations and offers an open fire, a hot tub, ample grounds, true sophistication and multiple spaces for entertaining.
Culture is very strong in Brecon with several of the town's galleries and crafts shops now marketing themselves as the Artbeat Trail. There is also a beautiful river running through the town called the River Usk which provides picturesque walks and views to enjoy whilst bathing in the sun. Rowing boats can be hired from The Promenade offering an idyllic way to spend an afternoon on the river. Walk the towpath along the Monmouth and Brecon Canal or, take a cruise along the canal and let the boat do all the work.
