The Powys / Brecon Beacons / Powys region
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.
There are many attractions to visit including a Norman Cathedral with its own heritage centre, two museums: the South Wales Borderers Museum, which contains memorabilia of the Regiment's defence of Rourke's Drift and the Brecknock Museum which is situated in the Town's elegant former courthouse and is packed full of fascinating exhibits.
The Brecon area
The Brecon Beacons National Park is a beautiful area with dramatic scenery,and abundant wildlife . It is a landscape of contrasts, waterfalls in sheltered valleys and windswept mountains.
Ever since the Iron Age, this magical spot at the confluence of the Usk and Honddu rivers and sheltered by the mountains has been prized and protected. Now the commercial centre of the southern part of Powys, Brecon remains first and foremost a traditional Mid Wales market town - as you will see on any Tuesday or Friday. There are many attractions to visit including a Norman Cathedral with its own heritage centre, two museums: the South Wales Borderers Museum, which contains memorabilia of the Regiment's defence of Rourke's Drift and the Brecknock Museum which is situated in the Town's elegant former courthouse and is packed full of fascinating exhibits.
The River Usk flows through the town and the promenade along the Usk is an ideal area for a gentle stroll, you can even enjoy boating on the river. New additions to the town are Bethel Square Shopping Centre and Theatre Brycheiniog.
There is a livestock market held every Tuesday and Friday and a craft market on the third Saturday of every month.

Very spacious apartment over a stove store in the middle of Brecon, surrounded by shops and restaurants. Perfect apartment if you do not want to be stuck in the middle of nowhere. Drawback of the location is that it can get noisy at night. The apartment is unsuitable if you cannot walk stairs.
We loved the welcome hamper and the outside terrace. We missed an ironing board, iron and toaster.
The parking space was very tight for a medium sized/large car.

The accommodation is in the centre of Brecon with its own parking spot so that the expensive town council parking charges are avoided without the possibility of receiving a parking ticket.
The property is in excellent condition and is much larger than the photos suggest. The whole accommodation is very solidly built and the furnishings are of a high quality. The large breakfast kitchen has the capacity for six diners and the living room is also big with two large sofas and extra easy chairs. A large television, sky box and dvd player provide much scope for entertainment and there are also several family games and books available. The two double bedrooms are nice rooms and the single bedroom, although snug, is perfectly large enough for an adult. The bathroom has a powerful shower and there was always a plentiful supply of hot water. An added bonus (should the weather be kind to you) is the roof terrace and barbecue area. This would be a stunning area to finish off a busy day by taking an evening drink and snack.
The whole property was spotlessly clean and the welcome pack was particularly welcomed.
I thoroughly recommend Y Daflod without any reservation whatsoever.

Yr Daflod is above a shop in central Brecon. It made for a easy, central base for walking around Brecon itself, and touring the local countryside. We loved our stay there. The facilities were great: clean, spacious and inviting. Having access to the internet was most useful for catching up on emails and getting more details on things to see and do. The welcome pack was most thoughtful. We liked the terrace and the view from it.
Sadly, our stay was all too short and we needed to move on. We'd stay at Yr Daflod again if get the opportunity to return the the Brecon region.
