Heaven-above-Hay is a true description! The cottage is cosy, spacious, beautifully designed and well-maintained. Thank you Fran and Kate for making it a wonderful unforgettable weekend. The hot tub with spectacular views added to the comfort and the wood was a real treat for the dogs too. Just wish we'd stayed longer!

Spent a week in this idyllic location celebrating a 60th birthday with friends and family. The house - actually two old buildings linked together - is larger than it looks on the website and has great views. We found it very comfortable and well-equipped. We enjoyed using the hot tub (despite initial scepticism) and the pool table. There is a greatRead more range of activities nearby - we enjoyed the shops and pubs in Hay-on-Wye, canoeing on the Wye and exploring the local area. Hide
