The Pavement Palace is a unique one bedroom guesthouse, nestled amongst the shops and amenities of Hay-On-Wye. Famous for it's bookshops and International Literary & Arts Festival and now fast gaining pace as the best kept secret holiday destination of England and Wales. Hay is located in the Brecon Beacons National Park with it's beautiful rivers and fantastic hill walks. The town it self a maze of winding streets and alleyways all lined with curious junk and antique shops, clothes shops and galleries. The town is a rare thing these days being predominately independently owned businesses with not a supermarket or chain store insight. The Pavement Palace sits at the heart of the town, close to fabulous restaurants and cafes serving locally sourced fine produce.
The guesthouse is accessed via a passageway and leads into a fully equipped kitchen and utility area with washing machine and tumble dryer for those keen to take advantage of the walks or local fishing. The bathroom features antiqued mirror lined surround for the bath and shower. Upstairs in the bedroom a stunning super king-size bed sits beneath vaulted ceilings. And for those cozy evenings the lounge includes a wood-burner, comfy sofa, chaise longue and sixties swinging reading chair.
The guesthouse oozes a unpretentious rustic style and includes many of the original features, but benefits from contemporary heating and furnishings. A relaxing and comfortable bijou town house, suitable for a small family with up to two young ones or one teenager. Equally ideal as a romantic retreat for two.

About this location
The Powys region
With mountains and moorland, standing stones and castles, lively waterfalls and vibrant communities, the Brecon Beacons National Park has masses to offer residents and visitors. We have a long and colourful history and a rich and varied mythology and culture.
Our National Park is around 42 miles wide. In total, it covers approximately 520 square miles of South and Mid Wales, just west of Herefordshire, and includes parts of Powys, Carmarthenshire, Monmouthshire, Rhondda and Merthyr Tydfil. It gets its name from the Central Beacons, which dominate the skyline south of Brecon. They rise to 886 metres at Pen y Fan, the highest peak in southern Britain.
Some of the traditions which helped and shape our landscapes and our everyday lives have faded with time; others continue today.
Our night skies are remarkable. They've earned us recognition as an International Dark Sky Reserve. Our industrial heritage is magnificent: Blaenavon is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And our rocks tell their own story. They're so unique that part of the National Park has been designated a UNESCO Geopark.
Hay-on-Wye lies on the Welsh side of the Welsh/English Border in the County of POWYS, Wales.

"If you want to stay in Hay - Stay Here!"
Four of us had a few days in Hay and went against our normal form by picking somewhere in the centre of town rather than our usual rural location. As with all of Hay parking is not great but we had no… More
