A 15th-century chocolate-box cottage trapped in time, offering an entirely relaxing stay just 2 miles from popular Hay-on-Wye. Perfect for a small family or group of friends.

Just 2 miles from the literary town of Hay-on-Wye, on the brink of the Brecon Beacons National Park, this bolthole is perfect for exploring the Welsh countryside with family and friends. Exuding country charm and character, this picturesque cottage has traditional features such as beautiful, exposed beams throughout.

Surrounded by trees and blossoming flowers, pretty windows dot the exterior of the cottage and the charm continues inside. The lounge is perfect for relaxing in after days in the great outdoors. Snuggle up under blankets and fire up the wood burner for a cosy evening in front of the TV. Cook up delicious feasts in the kitchen where an abundance of utensils and appliances including a Rayburn help you to make light work of feeding hungry guests. Plate up at the table where a large window boasts breathtaking views across the peaks and mountains which lie beyond the garden. Nestled in the eaves of the house, with exposed low beams and tons of character, climb stairs to the first floor where you can rest your head in one of three cosy bedrooms. The single bedroom is accessed via the handsome double bedroom, perfect for families and decorated with pretty, floral furnishings. Enjoy a soak in the first-floor family bathroom and get your day off to a relaxing start.

Welcoming your four-legged friends too, there are plenty of walks nearby to explore together. Set off from your doorstep and make your way into the nearby forest for adventures galore. A 12.5-mile journey will take you to the largest natural lake in South Wales, Llangorse, or travel to Hay-on-Wye (2 miles) and visit the array of charming bookshops and welcoming pubs.

We had a lovely stay at Audrey's cottage: the location was fantastic, and the cottage felt like home. We will definitely go back!

The house was a lovely retreat, very close to Hay but in a little world of its own. The lane and turning round was somewhat challenging but we managed perfectly well after getting the hang of it. The flowers in the garden were charming and a lovely addition.

Lovely & quiet setting with most things you need for a holiday. Beds a little uncomfortable & probably need updating. Shower/bathroom facilities though, really good. Hard to find cottage even with Google maps!!

The cottage was a comfortable haven of calm and beauty in nature. All kinds of birds, squirrels and rabbits were regular guests in the beautiful garden. It brought us back to our childhood when we visited our grand parents. We had everything we needed and the owner Steven was very friendly and helpful. Haye on Wye is a nice town to visit (speciallyRead more on thursday - marketday) and the region offers plenty of possibilities for nice walks. Hide

Cottage was absolutely magical. The setting was gorgeous - forest one side and fields/mountains the other - and the inside was lovely (oak beams, real fire place etc etc). It felt like a little haven. My only criticism is the shower pressure was extremely weak. Other than that, the bed was comfortable, the kitchen was modern and well-stocked and agRead moreain, the whole place was totally magical. Highly recommend! Hide
