Brecon Holiday Lettings - experience world class sports facilities and beautiful nature
A gateway to the outdoor delights of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Brecon is one of Wales' quieter towns and one of the most historically interesting towns in the county. Located at the confluence of the Usk and Honddu rivers, it nestles in the heart of the Brecon Beacons, one of the most beautiful mountainous areas in Britain. With a National Park to explore as well as the charms of the town, visitors to Brecon holiday cottages have much to enjoy. Brecon itself is a small market town, which has enjoyed a long military association. The British Army training centre of Sennybridge is just nine miles away, while anyone staying in Brecon holiday rentals can also visit the museum of the South Wales Borderers regiment, which explores the role they played in the Zulu Wars in particular.
The town has also become more associated with the arts in recent years. There is now a range of small galleries in the town, as well as certain local retailers, who market themselves as being part of the Artbeat Trail, an interesting initiative to boost interest in the arts in the area. An arts festival is also held in the town in autumn. But it is the Brecon Beacons National Park which brings most visitors to this part of Wales. Popular with outdoors enthusiasts for years, the area also enjoys an important geological status. The Fforest Fawr Geopark in the Brecon Beacons was awarded membership of the European Geopark Network and given UNESCO Global Geopark recognition. This geography also brings many opportunities for leisure activities.
Brecon Cottage Rentals - a haven for outdoors enthusiasts
The hills in the Beacons are popular with hang-gliders as well as hikers and mountain bikers. Cavers are also drawn to the area because of its spectacular underground attractions, while the waters in the region provide ample opportunity for canoeists and kayakers. Fisherman can also enjoy the streams, rivers and lakes, and there are good golf courses for those who like to take things a little steadier. There are also some spectacular waterfalls which can be reached fairly easily on walking trails.
As well as hiking, climbing and hang-gliding, the National Park is also particularly welcoming to horse riders. The park was recently given the British Horse Society Access Award in recognition of the work carried out in opening up access to horses. Visitors to Brecon holiday homes who enjoy horses have some of the best scenery in Britain to explore, making for some of the best riding in Europe. Anyone staying in Brecon holiday rentals can expect a memorable holiday, seek the great outdoors and enjoy the natural gems Brecon has to offer.If you're a nature lover, then take a look at Estonia Holiday Rentals
