Brecon

Lined with Jacobean and Georgian shopfronts, this Mid Wales town lies at the northern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, offering a true sense timelessness and blissful tranquillity.

Sheltered by the Brecon Beacons, this lively market town is situated alongside the river Usk and is now the commercial hub of southern Powys, seeing the arrival of traditional markets every Tuesday and Friday.

One of the town’s principal attractions is its wealth of beautiful and historical buildings. On a hill to the north of the town rests the huge Iron Age hill fort of Pen-y-Crug. To the west of the town lies Brecon y Gaer - the largest Roman fort of its type in Wales, and in the Bishop's Palace gardens and the gardens of the Castle Hotel, the remains of an eleventh-century Norman castle can also be found.

Arrive in early August and you can enjoy the exciting annual Brecon Jazz Festival. Since beginning in 1984 with a budget of a mere £100, it now welcomes an average of 26,000 visitors per year, taking place at a number of open air and indoor venues around Brecon. Hailed for its vibrancy and family-friendly atmosphere, the jazz festival is now also complemented by the Brecon Fringe Festival, which showcases a more varied program of blues, rock, R&B, comedy, dance and alternative acts in venues across the town.

With the village able to offer a wealth of amenities and attractions, Brecon caters very well indeed to those who wish to try a Welsh self-catering cottage holiday.
