Tucked away on edge of Hay-on-Wye, yet only a 5 minute walk to the town centre with all its pubs, restaurants, cafes, take-away’s, shops, venues and other attractions that this unique Welsh Marches market town has to offer. 

Hay-on-Wye declared itself an independent kingdom in 1977 and is world renown as the second-hand book capital of the world. Hay-on-Wye is also know for the annual Hay Festival of Literature and the HowTheLightGetsIn philosophy and music festival, both held in May. The town is ideally situated for visiting the Brecon Beacons National Park and the Welsh Marches. Hay Castle is currently undergoing extensive renovation and will reopen in 2021 as an arts and education visitor centre.
