A period cottage in the heart of this charming market town, which is renowned as a centre for literature. The dog-friendly and family-friendly cottage features an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, a courtyard garden and easy access to a host of cultural, historic and natural attractions across the Brecon Beacons National Park.

The two-storey cottage stands along a narrow road that snakes its way towards the town centre. It has a warm and comforting ambience thanks to the original features, which include exposed walls and roof beams that blend seamlessly with contemporary rusting soft furnishings. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is full of colour and custom-made fixtures; it is the perfect place to unwind after a long day exploring the surrounding area, as is the spacious shower room that stands adjacent to the kitchen. Both of the bedrooms upstairs - a super-king-size and a double - are blessed with plush furnishings and tasteful décor. The small courtyard garden at the rear of the property is the ideal spot for soaking up the sun with an engaging book or alfresco meal.

The centre of Hay-on-Wye (400 metres) has an impressive range of bookshops, along with cafes, pubs and restaurants serving local produce. The River Wye meanders through the town and there are plenty of paths and trails for cyclists and walkers to explore. Hay-on-Wye stands on the northernmost edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, a stunning landscape home to impressive peaks, vast bodies of water and rolling wooded valleys that capture the imagination instantly.

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Chancery Lane. The location was ideal for exploring Hay on Wye - able to walk to everywhere as its in the heart of the town. The cottage itself was a gem incredibly cosy and beautifully appointed.

We had a lovely stay in this property during the Hay Winter Weekend. The property could not be better situated, and it was a lovely place to come back to when we weren't out and about.

We had a great stay, the cottage was cosy and well-presented, and is in a perfect location close to Hay's bookshops and pubs. We especially liked the snug armchairs, the woodburner and the lovely kitchen; and the owners were very helpful when we accidentally left some shoes behind. Parking was easy to find nearby, and it was an excellent base to exRead moreplore the area - we would love to go back! Hide
