About Dyffryn Cottage
Dyffryn Cottage dates from the 1600's and one of the original cottages in the centre of the tiny and peaceful hamlet of Painscastle, close to Hay-on-Wye. It's a picture book cottage with roses around the door, a cottage garden, pretty bedrooms, a cosy sitting room with a lovely inglenook fireplace and a fabulous large conservatory that opens up to make the most of the large and very private garden.
The village of Painscastle is close to The Begwyn Hills, a National Trust-protected range of hills which is ideal country for walking and rambling. The village pub, The Roast Ox, is just a very short walk away and a great place for eating and drinking. This is a great location off the beaten track with excellent walking Offa's Dyke Path, local pony trekking, golf, mountain biking, fishing, bird watching, canoeing or just wandering through and browsing the bookshops in Hay-on-Wye, only 6 miles away.

A pretty Shaker style country kitchen with electric cooker with hob, microwave, fridge and a freezer, dishwasher and a washing machine. Welsh Dresser, kitchen table and chairs. An entrance lobby with room for coats and boots etc.

Holiday Cottages for book lovers, outdoor enthusiasts and festivals in Hay-on-Wye
For a great many of our guests, one visit to Hay-on-Wye is simply not enough. They enthuse time and again about the year-round energy and ambiance of this charming border ‘town of books’. It’s easy to while away a whole day browsing the miles of shelves in the many second hand bookshops as you seek out a rare first edition, or come face to face with a TV annual you haven’t seen since childhood.
