5Named after the mountain range that dominates Brecon and the National Park, this recently restored Georgian town house offers exceptional standards of comfort and hospitality. Stephen and Melanie Dale extend a warm welcome and offer a high degree of personal attention.

The Beacons was once a riverside farm and the 17th Century barns and cottages still remain. The front part of the building was added in the early 1700's and the house has changed little - apart from modern comforts and decor.


The comfortable, well equipped bedrooms are individually styled and full of charm and the elegant, restful lounge provides a quiet retreat.

Our breakfasts aim to satisfy, whether your preference is for a traditional grill or something lighter, maybe a Welsh delicacy such as scrambled egg with and smoked salmon.

The original spiral staircase, moulded ceilings and even the meat cellar (now a cosy bar) all add to the character and atmosphere of this lovely home.

It is only a five minute walk across the River Usk bridge to the centre of Brecon (Aberhonddu) where you can still absorb the sights and sounds of the markets, visit the cathedral and its new Heritage Centre, investigate the local Museums, Theatre and Canal Marina, or stroll along the banks of the rivers Usk, Honddu and Tarrell - where kingfishers, herons and dippers are frequently spotted.

The Brecon Beacons National Park is not only an area of outstanding natural beauty, with its moors, mountains, rivers, lakes and waterfalls, it is also a place where people live and work, helping to preserve the landscape and pass on traditional rural skills.

Many types of outdoor activities can be enjoyed here - whether it be walking or windsurfing, caving or canoeing, gliding or gorge walking. It is also an area that is steeped in history with castles, manor houses, chapels, priories and ancient villages and towns.

An ample private car park and cycle security store are provided for the exclusive use of our guests.
