Our holiday cottage in Hay on Wye, the World Book Centre, home of the internationally acclaimed Hay Festival, is available for rent There is always a real buzz in Hay. Set near the centre of Hay on Wye this quiet cottage is within 200 yards of pubs, restaurants and the River Wye. The Wye Valley Walk passes the front door. 200 yards down the road you are in open countryside on the Offa's Dyke Walk. The cottage has recently been tastefully completely refurbished as our second home, primarily for our own use. There is a kitchen/diner, that will seat 4 people, which is fully equipped with all crockery and utensils, a cooker, microwave and fridge. There is a reception room with a wood burning stove, two 2 seater sofas and TV with built in DVD player. There is a rear garden with a stone paved patio area with chairs and table available for warmer weather and a grassed area. The cottage has a spacious main bedroom with double bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and bed side tables with reading lights. The second bedroom has a single bed that can convert to a double (or 2 singles close together). This bedroom is fine for two children but is not large enough to accommodate two adults. The bathroom contains a shower cubicle, toilet, wash basin & heated towel rail. Linen and towels provided. Coal & wood available if you want to supplement the central heating with an open fire. Free car park approx 200 yards away. Other dates are available throughout the year from as little as £100 for a weekend break or £180 for a week. Please contact for further details or to check prices and availability for March or any other time. Sorry no pets. Hay Festival week booked I'm afraid.

The Powys region

Powys Wales. Rolling hillside, towering mountains, flowing rivers.


Hay on Wye.Fabulous pubs and restaurants both in the town and a short drive away in the country.. Just a fantastic place to stay. Bikes are available at the cottage to explore quiet country roads. Kayaks may be hired locally to enjoy the river that is only 150 yards from the cottage. If you prefer just stroll along the Wye Valley trail.

"Stay marred by no central heating for 1/3 of our stay and owner's refusal to compensate adequately"

A friend and I stayed at the cottage for 3 nights in Feb 2014 as we were on a course nearby. The first evening was ruined by the central heating not working, we checked we were correctly adjusting th… More

I feel that this review is unfair. The guests arrived in the evening and apparently at some point in the evening the boiler had tripped out. I apologised to the guest when she phoned and explained that she was more than welcome to stoke up the fire with additional logs and it would burn overnight. This keeps the house warm. A plumber arrived early the next morning and started the boiler which had tripped out. I would undoubtedly have refunded a full one day's stay other than the fact that rotting food had been left in the house despite very clear requests in the instructions to take it away and the sheer unpleasantness of the guest.

"Perfect base for a few days in Book town"

We spent three days at this rental. It was exactly as presented. It would be a tight fit with four adults, but worked for us. The restaurant/bar across the street was great.… More
