A literary adventure for two on the edge of the book town of Hay-on-Wye. Cosy up in this contemporary-meets-classic cottage, before heading out to bookshops, cafes, and events in the picturesque Wye Valley.

Enjoy a stay on the fringes of famous Hay-on-Wye when you escape to this gorgeous, stone cottage for two. Originally a granary, the building is now a delightful, one-bedroom, holiday home, with a beautiful, bright interior and a private balcony which captures rural and river views. Enjoy it as a base from which to go on long country walks. Head into the Brecon Beacons National Park to follow footpaths and trails, go climbing and enjoy water sports. Try boating in Hay or simply spend time perusing the many bookshops, galleries and independent stores of the town.

Climb the outside stairs then wander into this bijou cottage that makes the perfect romantic retreat. Find yourselves in an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, with beautiful beams and soft, understated decor. Relax in here with your books after exhilarating walks or switch on the TV with Freeview and DVD. Prepare tasty, homecooked meals in the modern kitchen area on those nights you fancy staying in, then dine together either inside or out. Enjoy a hot shower before bed then pull the curtain on to your sleeping area, with its king-size-bed. Wake up to magical, river scenes. Take breakfast out on the balcony on fine mornings and soak up the tranquillity, as well as the views. Discover there is plenty of parking at the cottage.

Take a 6.5-mile trip into England to see Arthur’s Stone, a Neolithic burial chamber, or venture 8 miles to see historic Snodhill Castle. The ruins of Craswall Priory, 5 miles away, are also worth seeing. Try canoeing in Hay-on-Wye or head to Glasbury, 4 miles away, to take to the water. Keen walkers might like to lace up their boots and climb Hay Bluff, a hill at the northern tip of the scenic Black Mountains, which is 5 miles from the cottage.
