Lovely town house offering 15% off any stay booked and taken 27 March - 25 May 2018.

A pretty stone cottage to sleep six people in three comfortable bedrooms with an enclosed private garden very close to the centre of Hay-on-Wye with off-road parking for one car - this is absolutely invaluable in Hay.  A really charming and comfortable family house that has lovingly been cared for over the years - Ty Mawr is full of character and a pleasure to stay in, in this pretty little Welsh Market Town.

This is the perfect place to stay in this very popular small, fascinating town full of antiquarian book shops, antique and curio shops, boutiques and independent local shops with its cobbled streets and alleyways. 

It is a very short stroll down to the River Wye - to the Warren "Beach" where locals and visitors picnic, swim, canoe and fish.  A very easy drive out to The Llantony Valley and Hay Bluff, The Golden Valley or explore Offa's Dyke Path and the peaceful Herefordshire countryside.


A warm and welcoming country style kitchen with an electric double oven, microwave, dishwasher and a washing machine.  There is plenty of space to sit and eat comfortably all together at the family dining table.  The kitchen window looks out onto the sunny courtyard behind the cottage.


A utility room with a fridge and a freezer; with the back door leading out to the courtyard and the garden.


A Downstairs cloakroom with hand basin and a toilet.


The sitting room is furnished with some fine pieces of antique furniture, some family paintings and other water colours of the local area, there is seating for six guests in antique period chairs but possibly might be a little low for some people.


Upstairs to two bedrooms: 


Bedroom 1:   A bedroom with a pretty white double bed and views out over the gardens of Hay.


Bedroom 2:   A bedroom again with a pretty double bed.


Family bathroom with a bath, a separate large shower, hand basin and toilet.


Up a further flight of stairs to: 


Bedroom 3:   A large bedroom with two single beds


A further toilet with hand basin.

Out of the backdoor to a lovely and private enclosed garden with lawn - big enough for young children to kick a ball around and somewhere very pleasant to sit in the sunshine. A side gates leads out to the parking in the front of the cottage.

Ty Mawr Cottage is one of three cottages built in the early 1980's, the houses blend in and look like original old stone cottages in this quaint town as they have been built using old stone and old timbers but at the same time having all the "mod cons"  that a modern house enjoys.


The cottage has been a family home for many years and has a very pretty enclosed and private garden; and is still within a couple of minutes' walk to the centre of Hay and to some superb place to eat - make sure you try to book to eat at St John's Place - impossible to get a table unless you book in advance but check first it is to your taste. Booth's Book Shop, Cafe and Cinema is also somewhere not to be missed. Visit The Globe just across the road. Walk down to the River Wye - just a five minute stroll over the bridge - where you can spend a day just lazing beside the river with a picnic. Hire mountain bikes and explore some of the trails in The Black Mountains or just enjoy a drive through the glorious Welsh Border countryside. Something really worth remembering to put in your diary, Hay-on-Wye is a brilliant place for Christmas shopping  with so many interesting little shops to browse and the weekly market as well.  Why book a few nights in Ty Mawr to get ahead of the Christmas rush.

Customer Comments

  • We are a family of four and had a wonderful stay in Ty Mawr during the October half-term. The location of the house is brilliant - a few minutes walk into the centre and set back from the road with a dedicated parking space. It is so central that we were able to walk to The Granary for breakfast every morning (highly recommended) and it was a quick stroll back from various restaurants in the evenings. The kitchen is spacious and airy with a big table and the whole house felt very warm and cosy. The three bedrooms are spacious and comfortable; my son loved having his own room up on the top floor under the eaves. The family bathroom was spotless and the shower worked well and the extra two loos (one on each floor of the house) was a definitely bonus. The décor reminded us of staying with my husband's grandmother but this was no bad thing and coming from a house with mainly wooden floors we all enjoyed the deep-pile carpets! We had a very happy three days, would recommend this house wholeheartedly (as long a
