Explore Brecon with Expedia’s Travel Guides to find the best hotels, flights, holiday packages and more!
Situated on the edge of the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park, a stay in Brecon almost demands car rental if you are going to make the most of the opportunities for walking, outdoor activities and the pleasures of simply taking in the views that this area offers.
You can arrange your car rental with Expedia and pick your car up from the airport as soon as your flight lands. From Cardiff Airport it is a very quick drive to cover the 50 miles through the heart of Wales to reach Brecon in its picturesque setting at the confluence of two rivers.
From Brecon the delights of the National Park are in very easy driving distance. You can take your pick of activities available from hill walking, climbing, gorge-walking, caving, horse-riding or mountain biking. One thing is certain, though: whatever you are doing will be accompanied by the breathtaking views that the rugged charms of the hills, mountains and valleys of the Park have to offer.
If all the fresh air gets too much for you it’s only a short drive to spend the day in cosmopolitan Cardiff and enjoy its waterfront shops, cafes, shops and restaurants. You can switch natural delights for cultural sights yet still be able to drive back to your rural hotel and enjoy the next day back in the warm embrace of the Brecon Beacons.
Car rental opens out all of Wales to you and, situated as it is in the centre of Wales, Brecon can act as your springboard for exploration.
