Located in Hay-on-Wye, 2.3 mi from Clifford Castle and a 4-minute walk from Hay Castle, Radnor House provides accommodations with free WiFi and access to a garden. Everything was perfect. The hosts, the breakfast, the always available cake, the bedding, the selection of tea and coffee in the room, even the DVDs to borrow and the bubble baths. I know they haven’t been doing this too long but it seems like they have thought of every single detail. Between Julia and David they know exactly what they are doing down to providing fresh milk and frosty glasses in the room fridges. The hosts are amazing people. Julia directed us to AMAZING sights and shops. I also became very ill while I was there and they adjusted our reservation and were deeply kind- I honestly think this saved my life! We could not have been happier and I couldn’t think of a bad thing to say even if I made an effort. Flawless.
Located in Brecon Beacons National Park, an area of outstanding national beauty, 1969 feet from Hay Castle, the Start is a family-run B&B with a large garden that runs onto the banks of the river Wye.... Our room had a view of the garden and on to the River Wye, it was very pleasant with its own ensuite. Our hosts, Steve and Dawn, were most hospitable and the breakfast they provided was outstanding. Home made bread, home grown free range eggs, freshly squeezed juices, home made jams, a lot of work was put in to ensure we had a comfortable stay. I would highly recommend.
Located in Hay-on-Wye, The Smithy offers accommodations with a patio or a balcony, free WiFi and flat-screen TV, as well as a garden and a shared lounge. Best breakfast we had during our stay in the UK with fresh fruit, homemade jam and local meat (the bacon was unreal). Our hosts were incredible - we were welcomed with tea and cakes and had a good chat before being shown our room. The unit was massive and absolutely gorgeous, with great views of the surrounding hills. We were provided with everything we needed (wine included), and took advantage of the luxurious claw foot bathtub in the spacious ensuite. All of this and only a 2 minute drive into Hay. Our stay at The Smithy was truly the perfect romantic retreat!
Surrounded by beautiful scenery but just a few minutes' walk from Hay-On-Wye's center, this charming inn has a traditional wooden-beamed bar. Very charming OLD place with a lively pub with sometimes jazz on the weekends. Right in town, a very friendly place and helpful innkeeper. We stayed in he Coach House across the lane from the pub and the rooms were plenty spacious, clean and suited us well. Free wifi worked just fine
Located in Hay-on-Wye, 2.1 miles from Clifford Castle, The Bridge Hay has accommodations with free WiFi, a tennis court and a garden.

Its fully contained so you can cook and just relax!

An excellent place to escape and relax the hustle and bustle of urban life. The bonus was being able to take a Canadian Canoe down the river Wye for half a day. The many bookshops, the river with its abundant wildlife and friendly pubs.
Hay has many bookshops and antique stores. The streets are winding and filled with lovely stone buildings. We walked around for an afternoon, then went on a long hike in the countrythe next day. We ate at the Blue Boar one night and the Swan the next. Both were good - the Swan was excellent.
I went to Hay-On-Wye for work, it's quite hard to get to, I had to take quite a few train connections then a 40 minute cab ride. The scenery though is lovely, I had many walks and trails recommended to me. The locals are very friendly and they all seem to know each other (its a small village!), there are a few cute cafes and eateries in the village. There was also a fresh produce market when I went, I'd recommend for a weekend break when you want to get away from the hectic-ness of city life!
If you like second hand book shops, charity shops, antiques and collectables this is the place to visit. You can loose yourself for hours looking through the wide variety of book shops alone. The town is very tourist friendly with wonderful tea shops to suit any purse or taste. There are emporiums and vintage shops to satisfy all tastes and I can honestly say I enjoyed every minute of my time spent there. In addition to the old there are several shops selling unique clothes and foot wear and art galleries and pottery studios: something for everyone. We were there for the books and antiques so didn't engage with any other sporting activity but they are on offer. We ate at the Three Tunns pub on the corner of Bridge Street and Broad Street just down from our accommodation. The food was excellent and staff just great: cheerful and very accommodating. This town is now top of our returning to soon list. The town is really easy to get around and there is lots to see. Make it one of your must see places too.
Hay-on- Wye will not be to everyone's tastes, but if you like books, antiques, quirky shops and wonderful scenery you cannot go wrong. Oddly, it does not seem to be in any way special so far as pubs and restaurants are concerned. It is worth driving 4 miles to the Rhydspence for good food and a really historic pub experience.
Interesting shops to browse especially the book shops of course. Local food -2 good butchers and a deli plus bread and other local goodies in the cheese market. Locals are friendly and gave us good tips of where the best places to eat and drink. Walking is fantastic along the Wye and up in the hills. Lots of way marked paths and the tourist information office had lots of suggestions. We did not have time to canoe but will do so when I next visit. Only proble for liniar walking is that there are few buses so 2 cars is probably the best bet.b

Perfect location! The apartment is well equipped and very cozy; there was even an extra throw blanket so you can curl up on the couch with one of your new books. The living area has a lot of windows so you get a lot of sunshine with a nice view. The bedroom has a wardrobe and dresser so there is plenty of space for all your things. The beds are very comfortable and the bathroom is a good size. The owner of the apartment is absolutely amazing and extremely helpful. We will definitely go back and stay here.

Very centrally located, beautiful house in Hay-On-Wye. James greeted us at the property which made check-in extremely easy. The flat itself is well equipped with everything you might need, with a lovely kitchen and bathroom downstairs, with the bright and spacious bedroom and living room upstairs. The shops and restaurants are right outside the door. We couldn’t have asked for more from our weekend away. Thanks for having us James! We’d recommend this place to anyone.

We loved the quirky nature of Half Moon House. Eclectic and rustic, the interior wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea, but we loved it. The wood burner added a lovely ambiance to the living space. Bathroom was modern by comparison with a great walk in shower. Location-wise, Half Moon House is perfectly situated, just a stone's throw from St John's Place (beautiful food - booking strongly advised) and Tomatitos Tapas (another friendly eatery next door).

We had a wonderful stay in this fabulous home. James and Flo were superb, welcoming and helpful hosts. Breakfast was fabulous and served in a room with an incredible view. The accommodation was very comfortable and it was great to have a DVD player with a selection of dvds, especially for the rainy first day. The local village, Hay on Wye, is a lovely town with plenty to see and do, lots of eating options and book shops on every corner

What a beautiful place to stay. A perfect countryside setting right on the border between England and Wales. The rooms really are home from home; well equipped, cosy (but spacious) and clean. Kari was a fantastic host. Friendly and very informative upon arrival. The breakfasts should not be missed! A great location to visit Hay-on-Wye, Brecon Beacons and Abergavenny. I can’t fault a single thing about this stay.

Our hostess Liby was friendly and helpful, she went the extra mile ferrying us to Hay on Wye and back as taxis were not available. The room was spacious and comfortable, the bathroom had a bath and a shower cubical. I particularly enjoyed the exelent breakfast in the conservatory with the fantastic view. The location is lovely and we had a great stay.

The owners, Barry and Ilene, prepared very clean room and excellent breakfast. It was very pleasant and informative to talk about local culture and places to go with them. The spacious room is facing the rolling hills with sheep gazing on the slopes. The towels are large and puffy. There is also a well decorated family room to use.

Had a lovely stay at the Seven Stars in Hay. Arrived early and were let into room as it was available. Staff was most welcoming. Room and bed were very comfortable. Breakfast was great. It is always nice to stay at a well run, owner occupied facility. Didn't get a chance to try the pool, but that is a unique feature.

Great property in an ideal location for Hay on Wye. Everthing spotless and everything you could need for your stay is catered for. The photos do not do this lovely town house justice. We are hoping to book again for a longer stay in the area.

Great glamping option for the Hay Festival, just a three-minute walk across fields to get there. Very cosy and comfy, and a great little onsite bar and cafe.
