A well-appointed property in the heart of Hay-on-Wye, ideal for families seeking to explore the beautiful landscape of the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons.
In the heart of the bustling literary town of Hay-on-Wye is this spacious family cottage. Inside, period features combine with contemporary decor and a feeling of airiness, while outside an enclosed patio garden with BBQ is the perfect setting for summer evenings. Once you have finished browsing this quaint town’s famous bookshops and welcoming eateries, set out on foot to explore the tranquil countryside or take to the water for a kayak adventure along the picturesque River Wye.
Decorated in neutral shades throughout, this period property has a warm and welcoming feel, retaining plenty of original features such as a fireplace, bay window and wooden floorboards. The open-plan kitchen/diner is light and airy, with shaker-style units, plenty of surface and storage space and a large farmhouse table overlooking the garden through French doors. The lounge, meanwhile, is a cosy and calming space complete with a gas fire, soft lighting and warm rugs - the perfect place to warm up after a long blustery walk. When it’s time for bed, climb the steep cottage stairs to find two delightful bedrooms, a double and a family room, both decorated in neutral tones and furnished with wrought-iron beds. Outside, an enclosed patio garden is ideal for al fresco meals.
The famous book town of Hay-on-Wye is home to ancient streets lined with independent bookstores, welcoming cafes, restaurants and pubs serving local ales. Once you have finished exploring the town, pack a picnic and set out along the fantastic Offa’s Dyke walking trail, less than 200 metres from the cottage. Enjoy a riverbank ramble or a paddle at The Warren (0.5 miles) or take to the water on a kayak adventure along the River Wye. Slightly further afield, the rugged mountain of Pen-y-Fan (23 miles) is a must for magnificent views across the Brecon Beacons.
