This beautifully maintained grade two listed town house is ideally located within a quiet area of Brecon. The house offers easy access to the town centre and a selection of cafes, bars and restaurants.

The property is ideally suited to both families and groups as it offers several social areas including two homely lounges and a large open plan kitchen. The modern cream kitchen is well equipped with appliances and a selection of cooking equipment. There is a selection of matching glasses and crockery for 11 people.

The house offers two kind size and three double bedrooms plus an extra single bedroom which is accessed through the king size bedroom on the top floor. This room is ideally suitable for families or groups who wish to stay together. The house also has a cot for young children. There are two bathrooms (one on each floor) with baths and there is also a shower room on the ground floor just off the utility room and close to the back door. This is ideal for cleaning off after you have been out on the hills.

Mercian House offers a comfortable seat for everyone in one of the two large living rooms which both have Sky freeview, televisions complete with DVD players and wifi. There is also a sauna facility in the cellar which guests are welcome to use but we ask that children are supervised.

There is also a patio area with BBQ and a large grassy garden. The house is approximately 200m from the Taff Trail that runs alongside the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal and close to the river Usk. The Taff trail is a great place for walking and mountain biking, and offers access to the off road trails around the Talybont Reservoir and the Pen y fan mountain pass. Mountain bikes can be hired approx 300m away outside the Theatre if you don't have your own.

The Powys/Brecon Beacons region

The Brecon Beacons National Park has become only the fifth destination in the world to be granted prestigious International Dark Sky Reserve status making it Wales' first International Dark Sky Reserve. The accreditation is awarded by the International Dark-Sky Association, based in the USA. International Dark Sky Reserves are areas recognised as possessing an exceptional or distinguished quality of starry nights and nocturnal environment specifically protected for scientific, natural, educational, cultural, heritage or public enjoyment.

This is a beautiful part of Wales, with traditional market towns, stunning landscape, canal paths, castles and plenty of family attractions. The scenery here is both beautiful and diverse - rolling countryside and valleys, wide open spaces to the wild beauty of the waterfalls and caves. The National Park Authority also runs an excellent programme of Walks, activities and events.

Hay Festival is internationally renowned - and is right on our doorstep. Literary luminaries from across the globe converge each year on the small Welsh mountain town of Hay-on-Wye - sitting right on the border with England - at the end of May and early June. Not only are there 40 second hand bookshops but the town is home to one of the truly great festivals in the literary calendar. The Festival has an ever evolving programme of events - go to their website for more details.



Historic Cathedral Town in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

This is a town where you'll enjoy losing yourself...not only in the narrow streets and passageways lined with Georgian and Jacobean shop fronts, but in the sense of timelessness. For more details visit

Brecon lies in the foothills of the Brecon Beacons and is a popular holiday base which offers a range of activities and leisure facilities. The town lies on the bank of the River Usk and is the terminus of the Monmouth and Brecon Canal.

Brecon is also home to the prestigious Jazz festival that takes place in August each year and 2013 will see a third more gigs than last year, a sprinkling of stellar names and leading lights of the Jazz world. Courtney Pine, Django Bates, Jools Holland, Zoe Rahman, Phronesis, Julian Siegel, Jason Rebello and Acker Bilk will feature, along with the legendary Mavis Staples and, with 18 Grammy Awards between them, The Impossible Gentlemen - as the picturesque streets of Brecon come alive again this August.
