We have just returned from an 11 day stay, although we have visited Hay many times this was our first in the Cowshed. We found it to be very clean and comfortable, all on one level, which is a bonus, along with good wifi and Smart TV including catchup channels. There is ample off road parking, and private outside space, with a view over open countrRead moreyside. It was lovely to have a separate bath and shower. The owner was very welcoming and helpful. Definitely recommend, will visit again. Hide

Lovely peaceful location on a working farm with great surrounding views and walking on the doorstep. Luggage space is limited.A comfortable and very well maintained property. All utilities worked very well without any issues. Andrew & Sarah were the perfect hosts.
