Location description from owner

The Wales region

Look no further if you are in search of green hills and mountains, fresh air and relaxation. One of the most beautiful parts of Wales, a refreshing region in which you can savour the atmosphere of traditional market towns, go walking along ancient pathways and enjoy the pleasures of touring peaceful roads.

The surroundings in the central heartlands of Wales are a revelation. The scenery here is something special - rolling countryside all the way from the wide, open spaces of the Brecon Beacons National Park in the south to the wild beauty of the Berwyn Mountains in the north.

Hay-on-Wye

Standing alongside the glorious river Wye and nestling beneath the Black Mountains, Hay-on-Wye retains all the charm of a late Georgian, early Victorian market town.

The town is now famous for being the 'Second Hand Book Capital of the World' and is full of bookstores and hosts the internationally recognised literature festival that attracts well over half a million visitors each year.

Hay's association with books started when Richard Booth, an Oxford graduate, opened his first bookshop in 1961 and pursued his dream thata town full of bookshops could be an international attraction. Not averse to the odd stunt on the way - in 1977 he declared independence for Hay-on-Wye, crowned himself as King and made his horse prime minister.

Aside from the many book and other boutique shops there are many local attractions ranging from- cycling, canoeing, walking, horseriding, climbing, swimming, camping, fishing or just simply relaxing in some of the most beautiful landscape the British Isles has to offer.

“Cosy, well-maintained, excellent location”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2013

Brocklebank Cottage is just as the pictures suggest: pretty, cosy, well-maintained - a nice place to return to in the evenings, especially after a long day of walking and exploring. The location is perfect: near the center of town and just around the corner from everything you need. Charlie, the owner, is quite friendly and quick to respond during any communication. A few pieces of information: As others have mentioned, parking is a bit difficult in the town but if you're willing to explore a bit, you can usually find a spot on the street rather than using the public lots. The lots are perfectly fine but you have to move the car or purchase a new ticket by 8am: a little too early when on holiday time! The beds in the front bedroom are slightly more comfortable than the bed in the rear bedroom. If you prefer a softer mattress, it's worth asking for the two singles to be zipped into one bed. The bathroom is functional but could be a bit nicer; it's not grotty, by any means, but needs a good thorough clean. The shower is a tight fit for a large person - which is typical for Europe so expected - but it's nice to know before you arrive. More information on the town and the local area would have been appreciated. Having local input is always helpful when choosing where to eat, what to see, where to go. There is a binder containing some odd bits but a more comprehensive collection of information would be helpful, especially without Internet access. (The lack of Internet wasn't a problem, by the way: quite nice to NOT have it for a few days.)

Owner's reply: Very useful feedback- especially re the bathroom, which will be given a thorough clean immediately. Thank you.

“Nice, lovely cottage.”

Reviewed 4 Oct 2012

It's a lovely little cottage right in the middle of Hay. I think for four adults it's somewhat too small. No wardrobes available for hanging clothes! Parking can be a big problem. But we (dutch) are not used to park in such narrow streets and "left-handed" somewhat wider car, Very good place when you want to explore the Beacons. Cities of Hereford and Abergaveny not far away..We were very lucky with the wheather for the time of year

“Delightful cottage, perfectly situated”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2012

Brocklebank Cottage is delightful, cosy and well-kept. It is the perfect base for exploring the wonderful Hay-on-Wye and the surrounding area. Walk along Offa's Dyke or the Wye Valley Trail without having to use a car at all! The cottage had everything we needed. Excellent value for money. Highly recommended. [Please note, little or no mobile access inside the cottage - this could be an advantage or disadvantage].

“Beautiful cosy cottage in fantastic central Hay location!”

Reviewed 14 Sep 2011

We stayed at Brocklebank Cottage for a week in late August with our 2 children and labrador dog. Good communication and organisation before arrival to ensure we could get keys and knew what we needed which was excellent. Cottage was easy to find and very welcoming. Looked beautiful with glorious hanging baskets in full bloom. Parking was a bit tight as little lane but lovely neighbours who guided us as to where best and no problem to park all week. Three minute tops walk to the fantastic River Wye Walk / Offas Dyke path - via the first rate Fish and Chip shop or pub on the way! Other way and straight into the town where you can just browse all day long and while away the time in peace. Lots of activities for children within easy reach - outdoor activities at Llangorse Ropes is a must (indoor climbing, zip wire, high ropes, pony trekking etc) and first class kayaking tuition on the Wye with River Strokes (www.riverstrokes.co.uk) based in Hay is highly recommended for total beginnner or those seeking to develop skills. Brocklebank was a delight to return to - especially with washing machine to hand after a day's activities and cosy beds for a great night's sleep!

“comfy cottage with all essentials, well located”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2011

We had a lovely week break in Brocklebank cottage. It caters for all essential needs, is comfortable and clean. The cottage provides a great base, a few minutes from Hay town centre and Black Mountain walks.
