Powys / Brecon Beacons
The middle regions and the Brecon Beacons are a wonderful place for a holiday house in Wales, not least because of the wealth of outdoor pursuits on offer. Where else can you hike, cycle, golf or horse ride in such sensational scenery?
The Brecon Beacons is steeped in history which is everywhere evident, from the impressive Abergavenny Castle to Llanthony Priory. Visit the castles at Usk, Raglan and Chepstow or the Abbey at Tintern and unravel all their stories. This region is also an idyllic spot for a holiday house in Wales because of its extraordinary landscape. From the mountains and valleys to the lakes and caves, the Brecon Beacons National Park is a rich and diverse expanse. This is a wildlife lover and birdwatcher’s paradise! Walk up the hills, relax in the village pubs and take in the wonderful views all around you. A holiday house in Wales is the perfect way to relaxing and be invigorated. Powys is home to some enchanting towns, and places like Hay-on-Wye (known for its books), Crickhowell (oozing with history) and Knighton are all delightful spots for a holiday house in Wales. Likewise the town of Brecon, a market town in the heart of the National Park, is a lovely place to while away an afternoon, whether you’re browsing the farmers market or visiting the Iron Age hill fort which watches over it. Powys and the Brecon Beacons have something for everyone.
