We had a fabulous stay in Hay on Wye. For us it was a trip down memory lane walking in the footsteps of and reliving some of our family history. The owner has wonderfully balanced keeping the character of the cottage and garden with his very well hand made modern furniture. The atmosphere of the cottage is fresh, cosy and quiet. Nearby is a tranquil tree lined walk to the 'Warren' and the beautiful river Wye, where, from the little stone 'beach' my husband honed his stone skimming skills! In the other direction you can also walk on the same path (the Bailey walk) all the way into town or on a path higher up which is the old railway route. Also nearby you can find the Swan spring from which the family who lived in this cottage got their drinking water years ago and is still trickling away today!
We also enjoyed a more strenuous walk on the Offa's Dyke path and across fields above Hay and more than one trip up to Hay Bluff. The town itself has a lot of history and the buildings have retained their character. We enjoyed eating out more than once too. Being on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park we took a trip one day to the beautiful Sgwd yr Eira waterfall which you can walk behind! Busy days out were rewarded with relaxing in the evening with the lovely little log burner in the cottage. We would love to come back as there is much, much more to explore, as well as we would be very happy to repeat some of what we did this time!
We highly recommend this cottage for comfort and situation and the attention the owner has made in making this holiday let a good place to stay.
Really loved staying here! Definitely want to come back. Beautiful little cottage equipped with everything you could possibly need. Few minutes walk to the shops and restaurants/pubs. Easy access to surrounding walks including Offas Dyke that was spectacular! Owners were easy to contact and very helpful. Would recommend this cottage! Can’t praise it highly enough
