Low environmental impact woodland cottage in a magical setting by the river; both contemporary and traditional, this is a perfect base for bushcraft, birdwatching and exploring the charming villages nearby.

Within 1 mile is the bustle of Hay-on-Wye, where you can explore several galleries, sample local produce at the weekly market or discover Hay Castle ruins. On your doorstep is an array of birdlife and other wildlife observable up close from an elevated position in the woods. Walking enthusiasts are spoilt for choice with paths including The Wye Valley Walk, Offa's Dyke Path, and the Black Mountains all nearby. Those wishing to connect with nature have the riverbank, a beach for swimming, and a range of canoeing and bushcraft options on-site or very close by.

 

The wooden-clad lodge is bound to please guests with its cosy underfloor heating and large kitchen, equipped with a gas oven and ample dining space for six. The lounge area has cosy soft seating to sink into, a wall-mounted TV, and floor-to-ceiling windows to really drink in those vast immersive woodland views. There is also a sofa bed if needed. Three bedrooms, a double, twin (with sloping ceilings) and a twin which can be made into a king-size, continue the tranquil tree-lined horizon with windows perfectly situated for spotting the foxes and badgers in the woods. A generously sized family shower room with WC is perfect for unwinding after a day exploring and completes the property.

 

A veranda accessed from the kitchen is ideal for relaxing among the trees as you enjoy a homecooked meal or evening drinks. Enjoy a BBQ and draw out the warmer evenings in this sociable space. There is no need to sacrifice creature comforts in the woods as a shared washing and drying facility lies nearby. Ample off-road parking surrounds the property.

An idyllic peaceful location, simple but perfect accommodation with comfortable beds and a thoughtful, helpful host (thank you again, Ros). What more do you need? The Bothy was very spacious, Wifi reliable and Netflix available which meant the teenagers accompanying me were untroubled by wet weather spells. Short walks to town (which is lovely) andRead more down to the river through the woods. Everyone- including the dog - had a great time. Hide

The Bothy was a perfect place to stay - it felt really secluded whilst still being a short walk into Hay on wye for shops etc. Loved the view looking through the trees down to the river. The owners were very friendly and unobtrusively available if needed. The bed was really comfy too! We had a great weekend away and would definitely return for a loRead morenger stay. Hide
