With ample space for 13 guests, this bright and welcoming property on the outskirts of Brecon makes a great holiday home for a family celebration or for a group of friends enjoying a weekend break.

The property is ideally situated for exploring the popular market town of Brecon, with a wide range of independent shops and great places to eat and drink within half a mile. Attractions in the town include the Regimental Museum of the Royal Welsh, Theatr Brycheiniog, the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, a 1930s-style cinema and the town’s historic cathedral.

The large kitchen/diner is a pleasure to cook in, and is equipped with a larder fridge, oven, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher and plenty of preparation space. The dining table in the centre of the room is perfect for sharing a special family meal. The large freezer can be found in the nearby utility room. The ground floor also has a separate utility room for hanging coats and storing walking boots, and has a shower and WC.

Canal Bridge House is a perfect house for large family gatherings. We were 13 of us, aged 1 to 90 years, and never felt cramped. Ideal location for pushchair walks along the canal and to the town, but also more adventurous country walks. House exceptionally well equipped. Some nights can be noisy from events at the Rugby club but that did not spoilRead more our holiday. It was handy having shops within easy walking distance. Great stay and would totally recommend it. Great welcome pack too. Hide

This property is spotlessly clean, well-equipped and comfortable. We were a group of old school friends and the piano and pool table were a bonus. There was a welcome pack which included fresh fruit, tea, coffee and milk, which meant we didnt have to rush out to buy basic provisions. The house is in a great location.
