Cosy & welcoming farm cottage in beautiful location
This was a spacious, well equiped, comfortable & warm farmhouse suitable for 8 people in a delightfully peaceful location near Hay on Wye. Beautiful views over the valley in front of the cottage. The woodburner & underfloor downstairs heating were lovely (although we didn't light the fire every day as the heating was very efficient). We were very appreciative of the welcome pack of provisions, particularly as it snowed & the local shops weren't open when we arrived. There was lots to see & do in the area including a gorgeous walk from the farmhouse along Offa's Dyke & up to Hay Bluff. Many thanks. We hope to return.

An opportunity to stay in a traditional farm house in a remote and tranquil setting for 8 adults to chill out. The wood burner made all the difference during 3 cold February days.
Mr Martin

A lovely property, in a great location. We spent our time exploring the local area and then coming back to a homely property to relax in in front of the fire.
