hello, My family bought a former School on the edge of the Brecon Beacons as a home and place of business and in the renovation process we re-purposed a classroom which is now our Holiday Apartment. We live in this huge building and have our businesses as part of that offering Soft Furnishings and an Art Gallery. The community have welcomed us in and we enjoy being part of this friendly town... I say town although there is a distinct village feel. The region is perceived as being industrial however its far richer than that with links to Culture and Art of National and International regard. Associations with the American Industrial Revolution, Architect of our motorway system, Author or the Welsh Dictionary, Creator of S4C, Poets, Surgeons, Musicians, Writers, Artists and Composers all highly regarding published and notorious in their own rights... ALL from this little quiet valley. A local opera singer has brought more royalty, heads of state and the "worlds" wealthiest people to this tiny town than many of the UK's major cities & we are tucked away just 15 miles away from Swansea or Brecon. We love living here and hope you visit and enjoy some of this amazing country, hear stories of the local characters and astonishing history, Legends and Myth real and mystical .. just as we do.
