Canoes can be hired on local rivers or activity providers can be booked for the more adventurous wanting to try gorge walking, climbing and caving.

                              Close by is the world renowned town of books - Hay on Wye as well as the historic town of Llandeilo to the west. Local castles include Carreg Cennan and Tretower Court. The area is just north of the industrial south Wales valleys so visitors can also explore BIg Pit and the Blaenavon World Heritage site.

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2008

                              About the owner: My husband & I opened No 10 having been in the group accommodation market for 14 years with a property in a rural location. We recognised that actually many people wanted town house accommodation, luxurious accommodation and that there was a lack of large group accommodation in the town of Brecon itself for family and friends gatherings. People like to be able to just walk to bars and restaurants. I ran Brecon Beacons Tourism - the tourism trade association for the Brecon Beacons for 6 years and am a Brecon Beacons Sustainable Tourism Champion which means I have worked with the Green Tourism Business Scheme and am a National Park Ambassador.

                              Why the Owner Chose Brecon:
                              We bought No 10 because of it's potential and location - a grand house in the middle of Brecon, close to the cathedral, the canal and all the amenities in the town. The house is huge, surprising and a real treat - we love showing people around when they first arrive.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              No 10 has seven bedrooms accessed off 3 different staircases allowing different members of any group staying to have their own privacy whilst enjoying the very large and comfortable main rooms. The house has a first floor drawing room opening onto a peaceful and secluded garden which had a view of the cathedral one way and a glimpse of the Beacons in the distance the other way.
