About Mrs Sandra Sheldon

We have lived at Lansdowne ever since moving to the area from Nottingham in 2001 and can't imagine living anywhere else. The scenery is amazing, the walks are incredible and the nearness of the lovely little town of Hay-on-Wye is an added bonus.

Mrs Sandra Sheldon purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Mrs Sandra Sheldon chose West Midlands

After many years of visiting the area we decided to move here and fell in love with our house Lansdowne, which was being run as a bed and breakfast.The house is in a perfect position with stunning views and a beautiful garden. In 2008 we built the self-contained annexe with the purpose of using it for holiday lets as we were aware that more and more people preferred to have self-catering holidays.

Bright, spacious, peaceful and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights which was not long enough! The delightful apartment was in a peaceful, pretty location within easy walking distance of Hay. We also walked to the top of Hay Bluff from the apartment. The apartment was very clean, well equipped and furnished very comfortably. The photos don't quite do it justice - We expected it to be more cramped but it is bright and roomy.

Great for a couple and we had two small dogs and couldn't have been happier. Excellent property !

  • 5 of 5

Loved the apartment and the location. Everything you'd need for a self catering break, with Hay in easy walking distance for shopping and meals out. Longer walks available straight from the property and enjoyed some evenings out, especially the Blue Boar for bar meals and good beer.

Great location, lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Apartment has everything you need for your stay. It's a short walk to Hay across the fields ... lovely in the moonlight, and the hosts are very welcoming, letting us use their beautiful garden with views across the countryside. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Lovely and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

I just needed a quiet space for some work planning, reading and thinking.

The Lansdowne Annexe was perfect for what I wanted. Small Lounge/Kitchen, Comfortable bedroom and bathroom - all as described. I had to be rescued when my key broke in the front door locking me in, but Stuart came to my rescue within minutes and I was free!

Walking to town was just 10 minutes for (fit but middle-aged) me, might be longer for others, and it is up and down hill.

There's a lovely little church at the top of the lane which you should definitely check out.

And finally, don't book the weeks when I'll next be wanting to stay!

lovely stay

  • 4 of 5

We couldn't use the full three days due to illness, but the apartment is lovely,warm and inviting. Great facilities and few nice welcoming touches, chocolates etc. Nice view to rear of apartment. Probably best in the summer months as was a fair way to walk to Hay on Wye. Would definitely recommend and will hopefully return later in the year.

Owner's Response: Really sorry your stay was cut short by illness and hope you can come again later in the year.Regarding the walk into Hay I'm not sure whether you found the short cut across the fields. It is less than a mile and takes approximately 12-15mins to walk.

Lovely quaint cottage in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to stay, excellent walks from the doorstep. Cottage was well presented and very clean and so very cosy. Highly recommend it and would love to come back and do some more walking. If you're looking to chill on holiday then look no further.
