Stable Lads Cottage is a stylish holiday cottage to sleep 6 guests in three bedrooms. With roaring fires, comfy beds, beautiful Juliet balcony, well equipped kitchen and spacious design this cottage has all the ingredients for a wonderful holiday. There's even a little climbing wall (with rubber matting for children).
Originally a farm built to serve Maesllwch Castle, Glanhenwye lies between the picturesque 15th century castle and the River Wye at Glasbury. The cobbled courtyard retains many of its 18th century features including beautiful stone arches and the original stalls for the horses. Stable Lads Cottage and its neighbouring cottages, The Hay Loft and Owls Roost form an L-shape around a picturesque cobbled courtyard.

Ideal for large groups, great for entertaining with its three luxury cottages providing accommodation for up to 20 people, Glanhenwye would be a wonderful choice for a holiday with the extended family, a break with other families or a large group of friends.
Beautiful, mature gardens lie behind the cottages and a private terrace area is provided for each. Children will love the vast lawns behind the cottages, and the small children's Climbing Wall (rubber mats provided) and they are welcome to explore and play in the large field nearby.
Just 4 miles up the road, or 2 hours by canoe is Hay-on-Wye. The 'Town of Books' is fascinating, the shops there will not only provide for all your practical needs but also offer hours of browsing. There are boutique clothes shops, antique dealers; retailer's catering for crafts and interiors amongst many other things. There are some excellent pubs and restaurants and the most wonderful, old-fashioned sweetie shop. The little shops sit along quaint, narrow streets with the stunning and picturesque backdrop of Hay's 12th century, partially ruined castle.
Glanhenwye is also ideally located near The Begwyns, an upland moorland area. Largely unexplored, there are no set walks just a vast, wild and beautiful area to enjoy.
