Close to the centre of Hay-on-Wye, this delightful and quiet ground-floor retreat makes an ideal holiday home for a couple looking to explore the Welsh Border, Herefordshire and the Brecon Beacons.

Close to the centre of town, this pretty ground-floor abode is perfect for a romantic getaway.

Step inside this welcoming home and make your way into the light, contemporary lounge. The corner sofa invites you to stretch out and unwind in front of the TV after days spent out and about, and is also a great place to enjoy lazy mornings. The bright kitchen/diner has all you need to rustle up everything from picnics to three-course meals and has a door leading to a courtyard area where you can enjoy a tipple and the last of the sun. With views over the quaint street, the double bedroom boasts tranquil decor helping you to switch off and enjoy a good night’s sleep. Wake up and enjoy a long soak in the bath or a quick freshen up in the shower over the bath to start the day.

 

Less than a mile from the heart of Hay-on-Wye, wander into town and browse the many bookshops, antique shops and welcoming cafes, or head to The Warren (1 mile) and spend your day on the shingle beach.

Really central yet quiet location for Hay and easy access to good road links. Good sized rooms including a hallway which is good for coats and footwear, including walking boots. and yes plenty of walks from the door . Well equipped kitchen Only slight concern was that the small parking area can be difficult to manoeuvre in and out of if all cars arRead moree in their parking slot so might not be suitable if you have a larger car Hide
