Recently converted cottage with 3 en-suite double bedrooms (one is a twin) right in the centre of the town and with parking for 2 cars. Highly recommended and within easy walking distance of the many shops and eateries that Hay has to offer.

An attractive well-equipped cottage in a great central location with plenty of parking. Each bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom which is definitely a bonus. The owners live in the house next door and were very helpful and friendly, we would definitely recommend trying their Japanese food.

What a fabulous location with everything Hay on Wye has to offer from your doorstep. Supportive owners close at end but not intrusive. Mix time spent wandering around book town with time spent walking in the beautiful countryside.

Great to have ensuite facilities in each bedroom in a cottage. The owners couldn't be more helpful in ensuring you have everything you need, but the cottage is very well equipped anyway. Hay is a great base for exploring and wandering. We will go back as soon as we can.
