  • A romantic bolthole in a gorgeously converted granary

  • Explore the literary town of Hay-on-Wye less than 1 mile away -a 7 minute walk

 

Property code: BN163

Just north of Hay-on-Wye, this bolthole on a small holding, provides the perfect base for an escape to the Welsh countryside. Great for a romantic retreat, enjoy time wandering the banks of the River Wye, roaming the bustling streets of Hay-on-Wye or summiting peaks in the magnificent Brecon Beacons National Park. After exploring, spend time on the balcony and relax in style.

Climb a flight of external steps to reach this charming first-floor apartment. Find yourself in the heart of the home: the open-plan living space. Here, the kitchen, lounge and diner fit together perfectly and sit beneath exposed beams which complement the light, contemporary, country-style interior. Switch the TV on and put your feet up on the sofa before you head to the kitchen area to rustle up something delicious. If the weather allows, dine alfresco on the pretty balcony which overlooks the owner’s farmland and rare-breed animals. Freshen up in the large shower before heading to bed in the light super-king-size bedroom, separated from the living space by a curtain and boasting views across the winding River Wye. Gardeners Granary occupies the upper floor of a two-storey barn conversion with Glanwye Lower Barn situated below. 

Outside the property, revel in the country air. The balcony faces the fields of this active smallholding and has outdoor furniture so you can enjoy an al fresco drink as the sun sets.

For a day out close to home, simply wander into the centre of Hay-on-Wye (less than a mile) and browse the bookshops and antique stores, and tuck into a tasty bite at a cafe or restaurant. 1.5 miles from home sits a shingle beach at The Warren, on the River Wye; take a picnic here or stop off in a canoe which you can hire from nearby Glasbury (5 miles). Climb Hay Bluff, a hill at the northern tip of the Black Mountains for beautiful views which reward you after an exerting climb, or venture further into the National Park and summit Pen-y-Fan, the highest peak in South Wales, which stands tall 25 miles from your door.

Also available to book at this property is the ground floor Glanwye Lower Barn offering accommodation for two guests. Ideal for parties travelling together but requiring separate living space.

A lovely cottage for a getaway. Note there are steep steps leading up to the property but a sturdy handrail helps.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location, despite the weather! Cottage is in a small holding, it was nice to see all the animals and the cockerels were a nice alarm clock.

I really enjoyed my stay at the cottage a converted barn on a working farm. On arrival I found six lovely eggs from the farm that had been left for me in the kitchen. A nice touch!

Good clean cottage on a small holding just outside Hay. Nice first floor apartment has all you need and is comfortable with a decent sized bed and plenty of space. It is only a short walk into Hay and the animal noise from the small holding was never intrusive.
