This delightful detached cottage is located in the village of Painscastle and can sleep six people in four bedrooms.

Gatehouse is a detached cottage in the village of Painscastle just four miles from Hay-on-Wye. The cottage sleeps six people and has one king-size double bedroom, one double and two single together with family bathroom and ground floor shower room. Also in the cottage are a kitchen with breakfast area, dining area with seating and snug area with woodburner.

There is also a second sitting room with woodburner. Outside is off road parking for four cars and an enclosed garden with patio, hot tub, furniture and BBQ. Situated only three miles from the England/Wales border, Gatehouse is a lovely family cottage and ideal to explore this lovely part of the country.


This was our second trip to Wales in two years, this time we opted to bring along our two Border Terriers. Wendy (the owner) was very welcoming and a wealth of local knowledge, you couldn?t ask more from an owner. The house itself was very clean and had everything we needed for a weeks stay. The garden was enclosed and that neither of our BTs could find an escape route despite their persistence in trying. Location wise the property is opposite the Roast Ox Inn. Don?t let this put you off, as the pub and village are very quiet. You will get a good nights sleep each night. Hay On Wye is just a few miles drive away and is well worth a visit. The Brecon Beacons and miles and miles of beautiful scenery meant we were truly spoilt for natural beauty that is on the doorstep. There is so much to do in the area within a 90 minute drive of the house. Just check out the T.I. leaflets and flyers that are in the house or just ask Wendy ! Weather wise we needn?t of taken our walking jackets as it did not rain, but Wales is very green and cannot be so green without the rains, so go prepared. The nearest supermarket is in Hay On Wye (Co Op), there is a fuel station in Clyro that sells the essentials along with petrol and diesel. An up to date sat nav is also very handy, without one, our journeys would?ve been much longer. As the house is not on an A road, the roads can be quite narrow although not busy by any means but it helps to memorise the last ?passing? as you may need to reverse back to it if you are confronted by a tractor etc. We all loved the under cover hot tub, it was very nice to relax in after the walks to help ease those aching feet and muscles. We would recommend this property to all and at some point we will return for another weeks stay. The property is good value for money and we could not thank Wendy enough for making our stay perfect.

Perfect retreat for a family
Firstly, the owner is a very caring lady, who made our stay just perfect! Gatehouse is spotlessly clean with fresh flowers and Welsh cakes on the table. It's a large house . The pictures don't do it justice. Crisp white bedding and extremely comfy beds! As for the hot tub, that was a bonus!. Also a very friendly pub over the road with excellent grub. Only four miles to Hay on Wye. Horse riding and canoeing locally too. Lovely Welsh countryside and mountains. Perfect.

Beautiful cottage; extremely clean and well maintained. Jacuzzi was fabulous.
Mr Brazier

The owners were very welcoming and friendly. Gatehouse was spacious and homely with plenty of room for 4 adults plus a dog. Not forgetting the hot tub for an even more chilled and relaxing evening! I would highly recommend this accommodation and location.

The house was by far the best we have stayed in, it had everything you could want, even a hot tub and pub just across the road.
