Hay-on-Wye

Holiday Cottages for book lovers, outdoor enthusiasts and festivals in Hay-on-Wye

Hay-on-Wye is a great spot for a self catering holiday. The town is bursting with life, with loads of book shops, antique stores, restaurants, cafes as well as a lively arts scene. It's perfectly situated to enjoy outdoor pursuits in the beautiful Black Mountains, Golden Valley and the river Wye.

Hay is probably best known for its annual literary festival, when the small town is flooded with writers from around the world – politicians, comedians, singers, poets, novelists and so on. Not as well known, but brilliant none the less are the other festivals and events throughout the year, such as the Hay Festival Winter Weekend, HowtheLightgetsIn (the world's largest philosophy and music festival), Hay Food Festival and tonnes of shows at the Globe theatre. Have a look at this unofficial, but brilliantly comprehensive, calendar of events in and around Hay.

We have over fifty beautiful holiday cottages in and around Hay on Wye. We have town houses, rural retreats, cottages for big groups, and romantic cottages for 2. Cottages a stone's throw from the book shops, boutiques and restaurants, holiday cottages for cycling, walking and fishing.
