A characterful cottage set in undulating countryside just 9 miles from the bustling market town of Hay-on-Wye. This dog-friendly cottage features a cosy living area, enjoys access to colourful gardens and is perfect for couples keen to explore the cultural, historic and natural attractions in the Brecon Beacon National Park and those dotted along both sides of the England/Wales border.

The two-storey cottage, which adjoins its owners’ home, is located off a quiet country lane and is surrounded by colourful gardens that are rich with wildlife. The cottage’s interior is light and welcoming, with contemporary rustic furnishings scattered about rooms with original features including exposed stone walls and wooden beams. The lounge is cosy all year round, whether the wood burner is lit or the front door is thrown open to let in warm air. The kitchen/diner, which is full of period features, is a foodie’s dream and there’s plenty of space for the dog to oversee a romantic meal. A spacious and stylish shower room - perfect for a rejuvenating soak - stands nearby. A narrow staircase leads up to the first floor, home to a plush double bedroom set in the eaves, complete with wooden flooring and finished in soft, soothing tones. Guests have use of the small terrace patio at the front of the cottage and are welcome to explore the grounds.

The cottage sits just inside the English border and the area surrounding it is perfect for cyclists and dog walkers, with plenty of paths and trails to follow from virtually the front door.

The cottage has been constructed to a high standard, in particular the hot water was very efficient and the lighting levels were good enabling us to read in the evenings with no problem. The shower room was impressive and well equipped with good towels. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen layout enabled easy cooking if required. The seatinRead moreg was also comfortable. The owners were extremely welcoming and friendly. Would highly recommend. Hide
