Cottage in the woods Cefn Waun
from £57 /night help
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
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.

"Location fantastic .. but cottage a disappointment"
The location in the Hay Forest is beautiful with views to die for. Unfortunately the road in and marked path to the village have not been maintained. The road was really only suitable for a 4WD vehi… More
Thank you for your review on Cefn Y Waun although I have to say I am disappointed that you decided to wait until you had returned from your weeks holiday to voice your opinion on Trip Advisor rather than raise any issues you may have had directly with me during your stay.
There are two justified complaints here. The cooker knob icons have worn off and should have been replaced and the salt and rinse aid should have been topped up in the dishwasher rather than expecting our guests to do this. For these issues I am genuinely sorry.
The fire was emptied before your arrival. Cobwebs are a persistent problem with any old cottage in the middle of a woodland, I can assure you that the cobwebs are cleared before everyone's arrival only to return within hours.
There are no stains on the walls as the whole cottage was repainted the week before Christmas ! The information pack has everything you need to know including my phone number should you require an answer to something not in there or to report an issue! The fridge was clean, I checked this myself after the housekeeper left when I left a pint of milk for your arrival. The sink I can assure you is clean, you may be mistaking very small hairline cracks for dirt, this is common in old Belfast sinks. The track is easily passable in a normal saloon car.
I am confused about your comment about the logs, you chose not to order logs so I can't see how you would know how many logs you would get for £30. I can tell you it is considerably more than a weeks worth and we haven't had any complaints about this, especially from someone that hasn't even ordered any! You may have been referring to the small amount of wood that was left in the garage from the previous guests and you then decided to make an assumption.
