Jen & Howard Patrick

Born and raised in Herefordshire, Jen & Howard always felt a deep connection to the neighboring landscapes. In 2021, after a rewarding stint in Pembrokeshire where we ventured into the B&B industry with the well-received Easthook Farmhouse, we decided to bring our passion closer to our roots. Brecon, with its magnificent Beacons and serene landscapes, beckoned.

Our love for this region inspired us to create the Beacons View B&B. Here, we aim to offer our guests a blend of our vast hospitality experience and an intimate insight into the charm of Brecon. It’s more than just a place to stay; it’s a place to experience the heart of Brecon, guided by hosts who have lived and breathed the spirit of these lands.

Join us in this new chapter, as we celebrate the beauty of Brecon and create lasting memories together.

Perfect Location

Beacons View B&B, located just a quarter-mile from Brecon Town on Cradoc Road, offers a perfect blend of accessibility and tranquility, all while boasting splendid views of the Beacons. Walk into the heart of Brecon, known for its rich history with the majestic cathedral, military ties, and the Jazz Festival in August. The Regimental Museum of the Royal Welsh, with its captivating collection including the Zulu War Room, is a must-see.

Pen y Fan, South Wales’ highest peak, towers above at 886 meters, a testament to the area’s natural beauty. For those interested in architecture, the Brecon Cathedral and its state-of-the-art exhibition center recounting the history of Brecon Priory from 1093AD is just a short walk away.

Adventure awaits with the scenic Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal, perfect for strolls, bike rides, or boat trips. Enthusiastic walkers will love the paths by the River Honddu and Brecon’s history trail showcasing Georgian architecture. Beyond the town, marvel at the landscapes of Eppynt and venture to places like Builth Wells and the Royal Welsh Showground in Llanelwedd.

Lastly, literary enthusiasts will appreciate our proximity to Hay-on-Wye, just 20 minutes away, famed for its Literature Festival in May
