Be Our Guide to Brecon

Angie and Paul Corbett

Angie and Paul of MyPostcardFrom will be taking to the road all in the name of budget travel and they need your help.

This weekend we’ll be hitting the road and driving down to the South Wales for our first visit to Brecon.

As with making a trip to anywhere new we like to do a little research but we find the best source to be the people that have been there, done it and bought their souvenir t-shirt.

So we need your help and advice on what to do in the area whilst travelling on a budget.

Armed with a set of wheels we’re ready to roll

We’ll be staying at the Coach House B&B in Brecon and will be armed with a car and 2 days in the Welsh countryside.

We want your tips on outdoor activities as well as indoor (we are dealing with the UK weather after all), cultural attractions and which local markets to check out.

Plus we need your ideas on the best places to eat and who serves the tastiest cup of coffee.

Head on over to Facebook

So if you have any suggestions on how to spend the weekend in the Brecon head over to the Visit Wales Community Facebook page to let us know.


  • When you are out and about exploring the Brecon Beacons, travel south on A470 past the fantastic reservoirs – you can call at Garwnant Forest – great for walking and mountain biking – call into Merthyr Tydfil and visit Cyfarthfa Castle (where there is currently an exhibition of Kyffin Williams’ brilliant paintings) and then make your way back along A465 and A4059 calling at Penderyn Whiskey for true taste of Wales!!

    Enjoy your trip – the weather will be brilliant as I’m sure the welcome will be!

    Fabulous weather forecast, so take a picnic up to Llyn Cwm Llwch (park at the Login, 2 miles south of Brecon)and have a paddle or swim, then hike up to Tommy Jones memorial and back via Pen Milan.
