Brecon offers natural beauty

Brecon offers natural beauty

The small welsh town of Brecon could be the ideal destination for those looking to enjoy a slice of good life.

A market town, close to Cardiff, it is home to around 7,000 people and has a lot to offer anyone moving away from a busier environment.

There is a wide choice of property for sale in Brecon and as it is just an hour's commute away from Cardiff, it could help many achieve that important work/life balance.

One of the most appealing features of Brecon is that it has a good sense of community and a packed calendar of events that are ideal for helping anyone new to the area start to make friends and put down roots.

A cattle market is held in the west side of the town at least once a week and there are also regular farmers markets - providing the chance to have a chat and pick up some locally produced goods.

The Brecon Jazz Festival is a key annual event that is not only important for the locals but is also a major draw for people from around the world.

Over the years a number of top artists have been involved in the unique festival and it highlights the diversity and welcoming nature that can be seen in the town.

For those with children, then the local Brecknock Museum is worth visiting to help them understand more about the history of their possible new home. On display are a whole host of artefacts and exhibits that date back hundreds and even thousands of years.

The museum has successfully applied for a Heritage Lottery Fund grant that will allow it to use £2.5 million to restore the Old Shire Hall and Assize Court building.

It is also planned to improve the volunteer scheme and support the development of new education spaces and programmes to benefit local residents and visitors.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801716615-ADNFCR
