A pretty terraced cottage dating from the 1860's down a quiet "no through road" road within a few minutes walk of the centre of Brecon; with the canal at the bottom of the road.

Recently completely renovated keeping the original wooden stairs and oak beams  but with all the cosiness of modern day living.



Some of the decoration and furnishing are in keeping with the cottages historic charm from the Victorian Era; with a very pretty living room with oak beams, period sofa and chairs.



This is an ideal little bolt hole to stay quietly to perhaps do a bit of work while on holiday - good reception with a TV with BT hub - which means you can access Netflix, BBC I-player, ITV Player, Wifi and a DVD player.



A pretty courtyard garden behind the cottage to sit outside with a coffee or an evening drink.  



Sleeps 2/3 


The kitchen has everything you need, with an electric oven and a gas hob, a microwave, washing machine, a fridge and a separate freezer; there is plenty of room with a dining table and chairs. 


The  back door leads out to a small courtyard garden with a lock up shed, suitable for mountain bike storage. 


Up a flight of very steep wooden stairs - children and elderly people should be aware: 


Bedroom 1:   A bedroom with a pretty Victorian fireplace and a double bed (only access to one side).  Walk through this room


Bedroom 2:   To a child's room with a single bed. 


Bathroom with a bath, a separate shower hand basin and a toilet.


The courtyard has table and chairs, a BBQ and the lock up shed. A back gate with a foot path leads through to the next little street.


There are two little streets off The Watton, John Street and Charles Street, where the traditional cottages were built in the 1860's, by two local Brecon entrepreneurial and philanthropic builders, John and Charles Jenkins',to house their workers. Jenkins - The Builders - is still a builders' merchant in Brecon.


From the cottage it only takes a few minutes to walk up into the small market town of Brecon, down to the canal, or over the bridge to Brecon Theatre and The Canal Basin. The basin is often full of the traditionally painted narrow boats and here you can hire a boat for the day or take a trip along the canal on the water taxi. It is only a short wander down to the River Usk, the water meadows and The Brecon Show Ground.  At the end of the street is The Royal Welsh Regimental Museum, with, among other dispalys,  all the memorabilia from the battle of Rorkes Drift -  well worth a visit.
