Self-catering holidays in Brecon
Explore the spectacular Brecon Beacons from an inviting abode in historic Brecon. This friendly cathedral and market town, which sits on the banks of the Rivers Usk and Honddu, nestles in the lee of the mountains, on the edge of the famous national park. Find Brecon cottages within walking distance of its interesting independent shops and colourful galleries, as well as restaurants, pubs and cafes. Choose from self-catering accommodation to suit everyone from couples seeking cosy retreats to families and large groups with something to celebrate. There are cottages in Brecon that are well placed for reaching the town’s leisure centre and pool, as well as its theatre and 1930s-style cinema. Some Brecon holiday cottages are also dog-friendly, suiting anyone keen to bring a canine companion along.
Indulge in Brecon holidays with marvellous opportunities for walking, cycling and water sports. From your base in or near the town, tackle Pen y Fan, the highest peak in South Wales, or a section of the 55-mile long Taff Trail that goes all the way to Cardiff. For an even gentler walk, head to the Brecon Canal Basin and follow the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal tow path out of town, as it wends its way through beautiful countryside. Outside Brecon, visit Llangorse, with its famous lake, Cantref, with its popular adventure farm, and Talybont, well known as a walking and cycling hub. The town of Abergavenny, a little further away and celebrated for its fine local produce, also makes a great day out.
