Old Forest House Stables is a newly converted, ground floor cottage in the grounds of the owner's house, where the horses used to be stabled for nearby country house. Set in a pretty picturesque forest garden with views of The Black Mountains. This cosy cottage is very conveniently close to Hay-on- Wye, the interesting and quirky small market town famous for its many antique and bookshops that give the town its unique character. There are plenty of lovely walks and mountain bike trails easily accessible. The cottage is reached up a fairly long unmade up lane, can be bumpy in places and has a private sitting out area in the extensive gardens with a BBQ, great for alfresco dining. Within walking distance of The Baskerville Arms and The Old Radnor Arms in Llowes is highly recommended.

The nearest town Hay- on-Wye 1.5 miles has plenty of places to eat out and independent shops including a traditional bakers that also make lovely cakes, a butchers with locally sourced meat and a delicatessen plus the not to be missed "Shepherds' Ice-cream Parlour" with a great selection of homemade ice-creams. Hay Castle dates from the 12th century and is in the process of being restored. The intimate little Booths Cinema and Booths Cafe are new to Hay and just a few of the things not to be missed. The River Wye running below the town offers provides a range of walks, a beach with wild swimming and in places great picnic sites. There are great places to hire canoes, mountain bikes and even Vespa motor scooters to explore the area. From Hay there are of course wonderful walks up to Hay Bluff, over to Capel-y-ffin, Llantony Abbey and The Black Mountains and beyond.

This is a really great place to stay - tucked away in a cottage with a forest garden yet less than 2 miles from Hay-on-Wye.

The Powys region

Brecon is centrally positioned in the National Park and is a very popular base for walkers, mountain bikers and those who just enjoy being within the beautiful surrounding countryside with breathtaking views. The cathedral town boasts two museums - The Welsh Borderer's Museum and the Brecon Cathedral along with a shop and cafe. The bustling town centre is quaint with many individual shops and cafes. There is an annual world renowned Jazz Festival held in the town during August.

Crickhowell is a small, pretty and sheltered Georgian market town set between the lower slopes of Table Mountain and the backdrop of Llangattock Mountain with its great limestone crags. The River Usk, renowned for the good trout and salmon fishing, flows past spanned by an interesting buttressed bridge with twelve arches facing downstream and thirteen arches facing upstream. There are many excellent walks in the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons and horse riding, fishing, and canoeing can all be arranged locally.

Abergavenny is a bustling market town with a large covered outdoor market and a busy cattle market; there are ample local producers, craft and antique markets and every September the famous Abergavenny Food Festival brings together a wealth of local food producers, celebrity chefs and an enthusiastic food loving audience. This area remains a favourite base for walkers, cyclists, para-gliders, fishermen and canal enthusiasts, and there are many outdoor activity providers.

Hay-on-Wye is a popular market town on the River Wye, sitting on the border between England and Wales, at the foot of The Black Mountains. Overlooked by the fascinating 11thc. Castle, the town has a wealth of interesting old buildings and the "largest second-hand bookshop in the world" in the old cinema- one of the 30 major antiquarian bookshops, each with their own speciality. Hay-on-Wye hosts the world famous Literary Festival.

Builth Wells in the Mid Wales countryside is varied with magnificent great reservoirs using the natural shape of the landscape - now established over many years and a natural habitat for all kinds of wildlife and flora. There are great expanses of open countryside where the Red Kite (which can be viewed at close proximity in several Red Kite Centres), buzzard, kestrel and sparrow hawks wheel and hover overhead.

The Upper Swansea Valley is an ideal location for those wishing to explore this area known as 'Waterfall Country',

Monmouth takes its name from the mouth of the Monnow River, which flows into the River Wye just South of the town. Monmouth is a bustling market town with many shops and supermarkets. The pubs and restaurants provide good food. All types of outdoor activities are available, there is excellent fishing on the River Monnow and the River Wye; golf is nearby at the Rolls of Monmouth; Hot Air Ballooning at nearby Raglan and pony trekking in the area; excellent walking in the Wye Valley and the Royal Forest of Dean, exploring the Welsh Borders and Offa's Dyke Path

On the western side of the Brecon Beacons lie the old market towns of Llandeilo and Llandovery. Both are charming market towns with excellent local shops and information centres, guiding people to the numerous local places of interest such as Carreg Cennen Castle.


A small village just 1.5 miles from the famous book town of Hay-on-Wye
