Property code: BN260

Nestled on the edge of the village of Clyro, in the heart of the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, find pure tranquillity in this former stable building surrounded by delightful mature gardens with shady trees to picnic under. Sleeping two guests, this is the ultimate romantic couples retreat for those looking to spend quality time together uncovering the natural beauty of the Brecon Beacons.

At the end of a long day, grab your local produce and head into the kitchen to rustle up a romantic meal to be enjoyed before bedtime or at tomorrow’s picnic. As the evening draws in, unwind on the comfy sofa in the adjoining light and bright lounge/diner before enjoying a glass of something chilled seated around the dining table, perfectly placed for the best views through the picture window. When you can’t resist the call of bedtime, retire to the lovingly furnished en-suite king-size bedroom; crisp white linens and wonderful views of the Black Mountains ensure a peaceful slumber. Outside, unwind to the sound of birdsong beneath the canopy of mature trees in the lawned garden with views of the Black Mountains.

The picturesque village of Clyro is not completely secluded, the market town of Hay-on-Wye, with its local quirky shops, world-famous bookshops and farmers market is 3 miles away. The traffic-free Wye Valley Walk and Offa’s Dyke Walk both run through Hay-on-Wye. Ramble along the banks of the River Wye or skim stones watching canoeists paddle the gentle rapids of the river beach The Warren 3.5 miles away. Discover the stunning scenery of the Brecon Beacons on foot by conquering the peaks of Pen y Fan (26 miles) and The Skirrid (23 miles). Explore the ancient city of Hereford (23 miles) with its imposing cathedral, castle ruins and cider museum.

The school where you turn to go up to the property is not very visible from the main road and a better reference point would be the garage on the opposite side.

Very nice cottage, very cosy and complete overseeing the very beautiful garden. Owners are very helpful and friendly and give good advice on where to go and what to see. Location is very peaceful and perfect in itself, stunning view on the Brecon Beacons practically from the doorstep. Plenty of points of interest within a few miles.

A great location and a very homely cottage to stay in. There is a great view from the living room window to enjoy, and watching the blue tits, great tits, woodpeckers, robins, nuthatch, squirrels, rabbits and foxes in the garden, we hardly watched the TV. Hay on Wye is an interesting town, and we were close to the Offa's Dyke footpath, and easy accRead moreess to the Brecon Beacons and Herefordshire.

The cottage was light and roomy and served the two of us well for an enjoyable walking holiday, with some walks from the door so no need to use the car every day. Lovely garden and places to sit out although the garden furniture was not in tip top condition - location of cushions not obvious, some were mouse eaten and the furniture left outside wasRead more grubby and the bench covered in lichen. . There was a utility room but nowhere warm enough to dry rain soaked clothes which we unfortunately needed Hide

The cottage felt like home as soon as we arrived, partly due to the attractive, bright interior and beautiful setting in a lovely, tree and flower filled garden but also due to the warm welcome by Sarah and Jim. After the bustle of the Hay festival it is a tranquil retreat. An added delight was the amount of bird life visiting the garden. We counteRead mored 12 species while having breakfast. It is a good base for walkers or visiting Brecon Beacons. We hope to return. Hide

A lovely comfortable home set on a hillside not far from Hay on Wye, and on the outskirts of the Brecon Becons. The cottage is in a beautiful garden setting, with vines around the windows and with access to a nearby garden.Every facility is provided for and it is tastefully decorated making you feel at home and able to relax.
