Nestled at the foot of the Black Mountains, this charming stone holiday cottage provides the perfect base for exploring some of the most stunning countryside on the Wales/England borders.

Whether you are looking for a secluded, romantic getaway or an active walking holiday, Cefn Waun offers everything you need.

With spectacular views from every window, the cottage offers the comfort and convenience of a fully equipped kitchen, a comfortable dining room and Sky TV whilst retaining its original charm with flagstone floors, a log burning stove and exposed beams. The accommodation sleeps four adults.

Cefn Waun really is far from the madding crowd! 'Cefn Waun' translates to the Back of the Heath – describing exactly its rural location on the ridge of the Hay Forest. Peace and quiet is guaranteed as the cottage is located in our privately owned 200 acre woodland, through which guests have the freedom to wander. The Black Mountains are at your doorstep, offering fantastic walking country with breath-taking views across the Brecon Beacons, Radnorshire hills and across to the English borders. Explore the local town of Hay on Wye, famous for its individual boutiques and countless bookshops. Choose from a great range of pubs or restaurants to dine before making your way back to Cefn Waun to relax in the deep bathtub or in the cosy lounge in front of the wood burning stove, maybe with a glass of wine.
