Situated a short distance north of Hay-on-Wye, this characterful former gatehouse provides a great base for exploring the ‘town of books’, the River Wye and the borderland of England and Wales.
Sitting on a side road through to Clifford, and close to Hay-on-Wye, renowned for its bookshops and culture, this lodge is perfect for families with four-legged friends. A great base for adventuring your way around the Brecon Beacons National Park, spend days out and about before returning home to snuggle up by the wood burner or watch the sunset from the terrace.
This single-storey cottage boasts a handful of traditional features such as oak beams, flagstone floors and oak doors. Step inside and make yourself at home in the cosy lounge where a wood burner sits in the traditional fireplace and light floods in through the large windows. The kitchen is also a light space and has all you need to cook delicious feasts, including a double oven for roasting and cooking up a storm. Plate up at the dining table where you can raise a glass to time spent together and gaze out through the patio doors. If the sun is shining, open the patio doors and head outside to dine alfresco. The large garden boasts lovely views across the valley. Step up three steps in to the main king-size bedroom or choose the light and airy twin bedroom, where you can rest your head before soaking in the tub to get the day off to a relaxing start.
Walk less than a mile into the literary town of Hay-on-Wye where there are bookshops galore and plenty of places to grab a tasty meal or walk along the River Wye. For a lovely picnic spot by the water, head to The Warren (1.5 miles) where a shingle beach is great for laying down a blanket and tucking in. Travel into the National Park and climb the highest peak in South Wales, Pen-y-Fan (24 miles) or visit the largest natural lake in South Wales, Llangorse (13.5 miles).
