Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 3
If you love peace, tranquility and views across open countryside, then you will love Yew Tree Cottage. Set into the hillside overlooking Hay on Wye in the distance and located off a quiet little lane, you really can't get more private if you tried! The cottage, which is an old farm worker's cottage, has been renovated and today provides clean, spacious self catering accommodation ideal for a couple or a small family with one child (or elderly parent).
The trip down to Hay on Wye, which is famous for its literary roots (and superb array of book shops therefore!) is a short one taking about 5 mins in the car.

The views are gorgeous and with only birdsong or a distant Land Rover on the fields to break the silence you're sure to be relaxed.
