Description from owner

Description

In the centre of Brecon, this first floor property is quiet and peaceful and an ideal place to relax after a day's walking or sightseeing. Yr Daflod (the loft) is a stunning 3 bedroom flat over two floors in the heart of Brecon town centre and can be found nestled between the old cinema and the church on St.Mary Street. (Yr Daflod is above and alongside The Fire and Stove shop and staff are on hand to help with any of your queries).

It is very convenient for all the town's facilities, just a short walk away to the indoor market, shops, pubs and restaurants and there are gentle walks along the River Usk and past Brecon's theatre along the canal, or through the Cathedral grounds to the Priory Groves along the River Honddu.

As the property fronts St Mary Street (a narrow one way street), we cannot offer parking directly outside, however there is a private parking space to the rear of the flat (adjoining the entrance gates of The Fire and Stove Shop).

Location description from owner

The Wales 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.

Brecon

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.

“Wouldn't book this property again”

Reviewed 6 Jan 2017

Location was very good, the flat was on the first floor, spacious and clean. The flat is on two floors (15 steps between the two floors). But, when we arrived, two days before Christmas, the central heating was not working. The owner arrived and it was obvious she did not know how the central heating was working, and was also very abrupt in her manner - she was prepared to let us spend the night without central heating. She also thought the towel rail in the bathroom had never worked.  We managed to get the central heating to work later that night, after the owner left, and the rail in the bathroom did in fact work. The flat is rather noisy and windows are not double-glazed therefore there is a draft. There is also an allocated parking space, but it is rather narrow and would be very difficult to park if one had a 4 by 4 - we had a Honda civic and just about managed to park it (but not without a few scratches).

Owner's reply: I'm extremely disappointed to read this review and feel that future guests would benefit from a response. Yes, the central heating wasn't on for your arrival time (my mistake) but I had agreed an earlier than normal arrival for you and your family. You were not without heating as the large gas fire was on in the kitchen/ dining area and also the electric stove in the living room, I also provided you with electric heaters for upstairs. No I don't know the ins and ours of the heating system (training needs to address) but I am not a heating engineer! I immediately made a phone call to book a engineer for 9am the following morning. Yes, the apartment is on 2 floors (as stated in its description) so you do need to climb a flight of stairs to get to the bedrooms and bathroom, thanks for the specific number of stairs! Ice I seemed abrupt then I apologise but it is very difficult to take somebody shouting and being rude to me for 20 minutes whilst constantly feeling the need to tell me that they are eastern European and that they are not happy with the temperature in Wales. Thank goodness it was a mild December day at 13 degrees which was actually warmer than London! Our car parking space is only suitable for one vehicle and may seem a little tight but it's a godsend to have a space for free for the duration of your town centre stay, any scratches are a mystery as it is an open space without walls or plants? It's sad that you don't mention how patient and helpful I was prior to your visit, especially as I took phone calls after 9pm at night and if how clean and tidy the apartment was on your arrival but I don't suppose that I can win them all!

“Great Stay”

Reviewed 26 Sep 2016

The apartment was great - clean & great location. Clare was great on communication. We had a great time hiking in the Beacons. The people in the fire & stove shop were helpful when I didn't see parking space. The decking area was a lovely bonus.

“excellent holiday let”

Reviewed 13 Jun 2012

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.

“Very comfortable accommodation and excellent location”

Reviewed 24 May 2012

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.

“Central location in a spectacular part of Wales”

Reviewed 1 Oct 2011

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.

“a great place to stay”
