  • Tastefully decorated inside and out for a cosy, romantic break
Property code: BN434

Enjoying a lovely position at the top of a private garden, this welcoming holiday property is located close to Hay-on-Wye at the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Accommodating two guests, this cosy wooden cabin provides the perfect backdrop for a romantic getaway to South Wales.

Sitting at the top of the owner’s garden, this cabin is the perfect spot for exploring Hay-on-Wye, the Wye Valley, and the wider Brecon Beacons National Park. Found in the hamlet of Clyro, the property is close to a village shop and two pleasant pubs. Hay-on-Wye is only 1 mile away and is the perfect place to spend your time if you are interested in reading. It is said that every book published has passed through Hay-on-Wye at some point and it’s easy to believe once you’ve seen the sheer number and the size of the bookshops in town. There is also a large variety of shops, pubs and eateries in Hay-on-Wye as well as a theatre and a cinema to discover. Coincide your holiday with the famous Hay-on-Wye Literary Festival that takes place each May and June – it’s fantastic; also visit the remains of the town’s 12th-century castle. Further afield, you will find walking trails and mountains such as Pen-y-Fan, Sugar Loaf, and Corn Du, as well as Brecon Beacons towns such as Crickhowell (22 miles), Abergavenny (26 miles), and Brecon (15 miles).

Compact and cosy, this beautifully decorated holiday property is a lovely prospect for a quiet break away for two. Accessed via a short and wide staircase, after crossing the decking you will encounter the open-plan cabin. On the left-hand side is a restful double bed where you can unwind after a long day of touring the Wye Valley. On the right-hand side of the front door is the seating area with a Smart TV. In a connecting room, you will find a well-equipped kitchen, complete with an electric cooker, a fridge/freezer, and a breakfast bar. Windows look out into the woodland area that skirts the property. Next door to the kitchen is a handy shower room with WC and hand basin.

Step outside the cabin onto the decking where you can enjoy some excellent views of the countryside. There is a small table where you can enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an evening drink. There is a BBQ and firepit a few metres down the garden if you fancy relaxing outside at the end of your day. There is parking close to the bottom of the garden steps for one car. You are welcome to explore the owner’s acre of gardens with a small orchard.

Such an amazing place to stay, one of the best holidays we have had. It's in an ideal spot to take a walk in the hills at Hay on Bluff and only a 6 min drive to Hay on Wye with little shops to look around. The Cabin has everything that you need and more and the hosts are brilliant, always at hand but just leave you to enjoy your holiday.

The cabin was in a perfect location for exploring the Brecon Beacons. Me & my partner had everything we needed throughout our stay in the cabin and Jodi was super friendly and helpful during our stay. Our highlight was having a fire in the fire Pitt while listening to the birds and looking at the stars !

Forest Escape Cabin Clyro Hereford HR35LD was fantastic. We rocked up without following any prior instructions or giving much notice and owner was very accommodating. The venue was superb and cabin overlooking mountains was calm, warm, clean and perfect for our needs. The shower was excellent and cooking facilities like new. The bed was comfortableRead more too with down quilt, not that we needed the warmth. We didn't really use the large flat screen and great wife reception throughout. Thank you Hide
