This is a hugely over-priced property. We paid 639 for two nights and it's very rough around the edges and not dog friendly as the stairs were steep and very slippery as they were painted in gloss paint. It desperately requires investment, care and attention to bring it up to scratch. First on the list would be a covering for the very steep stairs,Read more a TV that worked, a new frying pan and a new cooker hob. We only stayed one night, so that was expensive!!! Hide

Pleasant cottage in a nice location. Hay on Wye lovely but, unfortunately, most shops/pubs/cafes were still closed due to Covid .

Dont stay here. There are no outside photos for a reason, absolutely terrible from the outside. The inside could be ok and the main living room is rather nice. But the downstairs outhouse bathroom and general cleanliness are awful. No freezer. We have photographed the problems extensively if required. The are also large gaps in the floorboards upstRead moreairs and nails protruding. Hide
