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 Llanigon

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks you for such a lovely stay.We had a really excellent week in Hay and enjoyed staying in the flat.Hay is such a great place and we visited some interesting and beautiful areas.

Very pleasant stay. Quiet and peaceful. Appartment has a very spacious feel to it with pleasant view

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend Lansdowne appartment it has a lot going for it. It is in a good position. A pleasant walk into Hay centre, 15 to 20 minutes. We did 3 walks from the appartment. I would recommend the Black Lion for a meal which is in walking distance.

The appartment was very clean and warm. A comfy bed, although the bedroom was a little on the small side, but adequate. Nice dressing table. Kitchen very well equipped.Also bathroom.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that you had an enjoyable time and liked the apartment, but sorry to hear that you found the bed uncomfortable. As we have had no adverse comments from previous guests(many of whom have stayed several times) it would be helpful if you could contact us direct to let us know what the problem was. Thank you.

This apartment is gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

Lansdowne apartment is pretty and clean, perfect for just the 2 of us who went there. There was a fully stocked kitchen with all amenities and loads of brochures and maps of the area. The owners were very helpful in pointing out which places were the top visiting points, and supplied us with plenty of useful information! Not to mention that they let us use their garden at any time we wished.

Located in a really great area, right next to the town but just enough out of it to feel that you really are on holiday! Thank you, Stuart and Sandra!

A very comfortable stay. Our cat loved it. A convenient walking distance from the lovely town of Hay on Wye. Hereford, Brecon and the Brecon Beacons within easy reach. Stunning scenery in the golden valley and from Hay Bluff.
