Explore Brecon

The centre of Brecon with it's mixture of well-known shops and small boutiques is just 5 miles from Cilhowey. There are plenty of cafes, restaurants and pubs to discover, and a small cinema. Take a stroll up to the canal wharf and visit the acclaimed Theatr Brycheiniog providing a theatre auditorium which plays hosts to many well-known acts, an art gallery and renowned restaurant with terrace. Sit beside the wharf and you'll find it's the perfect spot to watch the comings and goings on the canal. Watch boats bob by or enjoy an ice-cream from the theatre cafe and feed the ducks and swans. Make sure that you take a boat ride to see the canal from a completely different perspective - the tow-paths provide miles of easy cycling too. Alternatively, head through the cathedral grounds to the Priory Groves, some very pretty woodland bordering the River Honddu.

Brecon 5 miles, Llandovery 22 miles, Abergavenny 25 miles.
