Ideally Located Cottage Near The Centre Of Hay On Wye

Overview

Property

Updated: 07-Dec-2016
Cottage in Hay-on-Wye, Powys, Wales - On The Doorstep Of The Black Mountains, Brecon Beacons And The Beautiful River Wye

This charming one bedroomed Victorian cottage lies within five minutes walk from the centre of Hay. Ty Bychan is ideal for anyone seeking a relaxing week/weekend exploring the town and its local eating houses, cafes or for those seeking a more active time using it as a base to explore the mountains and rivers. Ty Bychan (little house) has recently been upgraded to a high standard with a lounge with wood burning stove for those cosy nights in, basket of wood and scuttle of coal provided. This is adequate for two evenings. Upstairs (steepish stairs with a hand rail on the right) large landing, bathroom and bedroom with a comfortable king size bed. Outside there is a small partially covered courtyard where walking boots and wet weather gear can be stored. This area gains access via steep narrow steps to a shared pathway leading to the small garden with seating for a restful BBQ evening. Hay on Wye has many amenities including eating houses, cafes pubs, and of course the renowned book shops. The surrounding countryside boasts an area of outstanding beauty offering many outdoor activity opportunities such as canoeing on the River Wye, cycling on the tracks and lanes, mountain biking and walking in the Black mountains and the Brecon Beacons (the owners would gladly advise on any of these pursuits). Either way Ty Bychan will provide you with a warm comfortable environment in which to enjoy stay.

I am sorry but I no longer allow pets. Unfortunately some guests have not complied with my requests when their dogs have stayed.

Please note I do not provide any milk. There is a Spar in the High Street if you forget any provisions. This stays open until 10pm.

About the Owner

I love my sea kayak. Paddling out to off shore islands, camping on remote shores and cooking on open fires is my favorite way to spend time. I have always loved the hills and mountains too. So living in this beautiful area makes me feel very privileged to be able to go out on the hill every day. Our changing weather makes every view very different and special.

There are times when i am in area's where I don't have a signal, so if you have sent me a message and I have not replied this will be the reason. If I have not accepted your booking please wait if you can. I promise to reply asap. The Scottish mountains often prevent my immediate response. I apologise in advance. I hope you love and enjoy staying at Ty Bychan.

Great location and homely feel

  • 4 of 5

Clean and compact cottage just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Hay. Very comfortable bed. We had a really good Sunday lunch at the Swan just across the road from the cottage.

We really enjoyed our stay.

A lovely authentic cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was clean and well equipped and within easy walking distance to the shops and suggested eating places. The eating places were fabulous and had a good range of vegetarian choices.

The owner was friendly and helpful when needed.

We would certainly stay there again

Nice cottage and great town

  • 5 of 5

Ideal for me and the dog. He settled in immediately and was very happy to stay downstairs.

The cottage was clean and comfortable and the shower was very easy to operate (not always the case!). Hay is great with good friendly pubs and shops. We did a number of walks, along the river, waterfalls, and Begwyns, all pretty good.

Adele was a pleasure to deal with.

Comfortable cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage, with everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. Just a short walk and we were in the enchanting little town of Hay on Wye. The owner Adele communicated all the info we required before our stay. Will certainly return as couldn't fault anything. Having no WiFi was a joy for us as it made us relax even more and read the books we bought sat in front of the cozy Woodburner.

Cottage central village

  • 4 of 5

Cottage is clean and compact and comfortable bed , Stairs are rather steep so not suitable for the infirm I would say!

Ideal position for touring the area, and recommend the pub nearby!

Lovely cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cosy cottage with everything you could need for a comfortable stay, right in the middle of Hay on Wye. The garden is accessed by some steep steps but well worth the climb for the beautiful birdsong. We will definitely return.
