Pretty Big Cottage, Hay on Wye

Llangain Farmhouse enjoys one of the most spectacular locations imaginable. Situated on a hill overlooking the Wye Valley, you can literally stand awe struck at this utterly magical view. With over 250 years of history this is a holiday home that comes highly recommended with traditional features throughout, including beams, thick walls and three woodburning stoves. The house has been restored using local craftsmen and materials (such as Herefordshire Oak) to create a one off property. The cottage can sleep up to 12 as there is an additional barn for an extra two people. We see this as a wonderful converted farmhouse with a location that is unparalled.

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.
