About the property

Cottage in Hay-on-Wye, Powys, Wales - 10 Minutes To Local Market Town Hill Walks From The Door

The Birches Holiday Cottage is a recently renovated large stone farmhouse incorporating modern comforts with original 17th century features. The property is secluded and within easy walking distance of the Black Mountains. It is a short 10 min drive from the world renowned bookshop town of Hay-On-Wye. The Birches is an ideal spot for hill walking, mountain biking, horse riding, paragliding, golfing or canoeing or to enjoy spectacular scenery. This 4 bed cottage is idyllically located in the middle of a hill farm which straddles the English / Welsh Border and the farmland joins the foothills of the Black Mountains which gives stunning views of the surrounding countryside. There is ample private parking, a courtyard with a stream running through and a spacious garden. There are spectacular views towards Hay Bluff to the rear and open countryside in front. Brecon Beacons National Park, Offas Dyke and the National Bridleway / Cycleway are all a stones throw away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you. We very much enjoyed our stay. Alas, we used the evaluations sheets for score cards for Scrabble tournament. But take it from us that it was a lovely cottage, roomy and comfortable and attractive. Everything was good.

Just to say a very big thank you for all your help returning my clothes and an extended thank you for making my families stay at the Birches such a memorable one we will definitely be returning next year but promise to take all belongings with me.

We had a lovely time at The Birches near Hay. Lovely cottage and much roomier than we had expected. Tastefully decorated, very comfortable and in a fabulous location - lovely scenery and so peaceful and cosy. We relaxed and really got away from the Rat Race.
