Property code: MAEWY

One of three beautifully furnished properties in the Wye Valley, holding a perfect position to enjoy stunning scenery.

This gorgeous traditional stone cottage, dating back to the 1800s, has been lovingly converted to provide a contemporary, characterful holiday home. With four bedrooms and ample living space, you can bring family and friends for an epic reunion. The property sits in the rural tranquility of the northern tip of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The River Wye curls nearby on its way to the literary hub of Hay-on-Wye. Take in the charming lanes of this historic town or catch an author reading, before heading back to your spacious and stylish rooms for an evening in together.

The cottage itself is a former stone barn and the interiors have been transformed into bright open-plan spaces. The design is reverse level — enter on the ground floor and you’ll find the first of your bedrooms, a double and a twin room, with a neighbouring shower room. Head upstairs and two further bedrooms await your choosing. Two doubles compete for master status. One is a bright room with period features and a unique wooden bed, the second is a calming, natural room with exposed beams. Once the crucial bedroom selection is done, head along the corridor to discover the heart of the home, your open-plan living area. This space is light and stylish, where traditional details sit beside contemporary design. Eat together at the gorgeous dining table, with light from feature windows streaming over your feast. Relax in the lounge — there’s even a warming wood burner for extra cosiness. Outside the property, explore the shared grounds and outdoor seating areas or test out your family reflexes at the table tennis table.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The Hayloft is a great spot for exploring the local countryside. We stayed for a small family reunion perfect for what we needed. It was warm , the bedrooms are all large and the beds comfortable. The kitchen / dining / living space is super spacious, sociable and well equipped....and there was a list of other things easily available if what you neRead moreeded wasn't in the cupboards. Our 4 legged family member was also welcomed and well catered for with blankets, garden and walks nearby Hide
