Cosy Family Retreat, near Hay on Wye (BRYNTIBR)

This is a great place to stay to be able to lazily browse the bookshops, vintage shops and the many interesting boutiques; enjoy the many excellent cafes, pubs and restaurants in this fascinating and interesting "olde worlde" market town or explore The Wye Valley, Black Mountains and The Brecon Beacons National Park.

A newly renovated spacious Victorian family house dating from the 1890's set very conveniently just on the edge of the small market town of Hay-on-Wye - about five minutes' walk to the centre of the town and with a footpath passing the door leading up to The Black Mountains and Hay Bluff. The house is warm and comfortable with ample parking so ideal for a group of friends all meeting up for a weekend. Hay has so much to offer - there are the bookshops that everyone has heard about but there are also numerous excellent cafes, restaurants and pubs serving good food. There are some really excellent independent boutique and shops and a fascinating permanent antique market, an outside market on a Thursday and a Farmers Market another day. Hay is always buzzing with visitors and local people - make sure you try Shepherds award winning ice cream beside the Butter Market, Booths Bookshop Cafe and restaurant where there is also a cinema - but do book your tickets in advance. Hay Castle is now being restored and worth a visit even if just to admire the views from the castle grounds over the surrounding countryside.
Just outside Hay make sure you visit The River Cafe on The River Wye at Glasbury and perhaps if you are feeling active hire out some mountain bikes or try your hand in a canoe or for a bit of fun you can now hire out Vespa Scooters. Make sure you always return to the Cafe if only for a drink and one of their famous muffins.

It is easy to get around from Hay-on-Wye, Hereford is 20 miles, Brecon 15, Builth Wells 20 miles and Abergavenny 25 miles

LocationHay on Wye

Located on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park and home to the beautiful Hay Castle, where visitors can explore the grounds of this Norman stronghold and pop by the Honesty Bookshop. Every Thursday the town hosts a bustling market place, perfect for picking up fresh local produce, gifts, vintage items and clothing.

There is canoe and kayak hire available from the Wye Valley, and the stretch from Hay to Glasbury has a few small beaches to stop off at along the way. Just down from the bridge is The Warren which is a great picnic spot by the river. The Hay Bluff is a large hill just south of the town, with views across the Radnorshire countryside to Pen-y-Fan.

Close to the Black Mountains are the stunning 12th century ruin of Llanthony Priory, part of the original priory also houses a small country inn. The keep of Bronllys Castle is an interesting visit, and the reserve of Cwm Byddog valley is filled with ancient trees, there are also the remains of a large motte and bailey castle. Another unique experience is the Eirian Glass Blowing Studio and gallery, half or full day courses are available booked in advance. The Globe is a diverse music and arts centre, with a huge variety of musical performances, literary shows, art exhibitions and children’s clubs.

Mid Wales

This is the go to place for outdoor enthusiasts to make the most of the fantastic walking, riding & cycling opportunities, especially in the Cambrian Mountains National Park. The Ceredigion Coastal Path features numerous trails to choose from depending on how far you wish to travel. Whether for a full walking holiday or just a stroll along the cliffs to a village pub, this unspoilt route is perfect and has views out across the famous Cardigan Bay which is home to the UKs largest pod of dolphins.

Dotted along the Wales-West England border are lots of lovely market towns, many of which have their own castle. This disputed ground has a large number of Roman and Norman medieval fortresses, today some are only ruins or just the earthen works remain however there are plenty which have restored to their former glory and are open to visitors.

Mid Wales also just touches on the edge of the Brecon Beacons, a popular mountain range for exploring caves, forest activities and other more extreme outdoor sports such as rock climbing and abseiling. A number of historic railways mean other regions of Wales are easily accessible for a day trip, and make for an enjoyable way to travel and take in the sights.
