A hip hide-away near Hay on Wye! Nestled in a sublime little hamlet called Huntington, with one of everything, a post office, a pub and a church all just a stroll away you’ll find yourself luxuriously enveloped in nature with views across to the Brecon Beacons from the bluebell woods, a bountiful kitchen garden you’re encouraged to plunder and friendly free ranging chickens topping up the breakfast supplies.

Set amongst historic Welsh Border towns including nearby Hay on Wye, a national treasure of international fame for its numerous book shops and annual literary festival with independent stores and local eateries the rest of the year. Foodie haven, Ludlow & historic Hereford are also within easy reach. From the door there is great walking along the natural English/Welsh Border, Offa’s Dyke and outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the Brecon Beacons National Park for walking, cycling, pony trekking as well as the River Wye for days on the water. Canoe, kayak and pony hire are all readily available locally. Bike hire is available at an additional cost, arranged direct with the owner.

Follow the pathway to the property, meandering through the vibrant kitchen garden. Step into the open-plan living space, with original exposed beams and carefully selected furniture pieces which create a warm and homely feel. There is a stylish floral sofa where you can curl up and watch a film on the Smart TV after a day of exploring the local area. The well-equipped kitchen offers an electric oven and hob, fridge, dishwasher, microwave, boiling water tap, wine cooler and Nespresso machine for a delicious morning coffee. Heading upstairs, you will find a beautifully finished super king-size bedroom set in the eaves, with freshly laundered bedding. There is a stable door which looks out onto the kitchen garden - a lovely sight to wake up to! Enjoy a hot bubble bath in the en-suite bathroom, or start the day with a refreshing shower. Fluffy towels and robes are also included for a touch of extra luxury.

Stepping outside through the patio doors from the lounge area, there is a private patio terrace overlooking the garden. Sit back and relax with a glass of wine, or enjoy your own private hot tub. There is also a small fire pit - perfect for toasting marshmallows!

As well as being very luxurious, the accommodation is fuelled by a state of the art wood chip boiler (tours available) and solar panels, offering carbon neutral stays. There is the option of offsetting your carbon emissions from travelling to the property by buying a tree / trees which the owners will plant and record. Any contribution goes to a local woodland regeneration programme the owners are working on to help regenerate biodiversity in the local area.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY

Terri, 7th June 2019

Great for getting away from it all. Bedroom and en-suite comfortable and luxurious. Wood fired hot tub a real treat - great place for those wanting to take a dog or two along, own wood to walk in before breakfast! Great hospitality from Fiona and Will too.

Hamish, 10th May 2019

a lovely compact cottage perfect for 2. Really peaceful location but close to Kington and Hay and a wonderful hot tub for relaxing. Cottage is well stocked and has everything needed for your stay.

Derek, 3rd May 2019

Would certainly recommend The Stable at Huntington. Fabulous accommodation and very quiet and peaceful area. Out host Will was most helpful. Book it, you will not be disappointed.

Yvonne, 11th March 2019

It was very small and the dining area was a little cramped. The kitchen was modern and had all you could need, and was very clean. The staircase was rather steep. The bedroom had a large and comfortable bed., The bath and shower were clean and worked well with lots of hot water. The cottage was well heated and warm.

Steve, 26th October 2018

Everything you could wish for to make sure you have a relaxing holiday. The Stable is very nicely appointed but we spent most of our time outside cooking in the Kotlich over the fire pit or in the hot tub! Lovely countryside on the doorstep and a great local pub 5 minutes walk away where locals & visitors all sit round 1 big table in front of a roaRead morering fire so the craic is always varied, funny & informative! Thanks to Will & Fiona for an excellent stay! Hide

Mike, 21st September 2018

We were looking for peace and quite, a large bed and a quality shower, this is the first cottage we have stayed in that more than fills those requirements, we have had considerable experience of second best! This is the only cottage we have ever stayed in where we did NOT look forward to leaving. A genuine 'stress- buster' honestly portrayed by quaRead morelity owners! Hide

Josephine, 14th September 2018

This is probably the best equipped cottage we have ever stayed in. Will & Fiona have thought of everything. They gave us a very warm welcome and shared vegetables from their garden and heated the hot tub for us ready for our arrival. There are beautiful walks very close by. Our dog was welcomed too.

Lynne, 10th September 2018

A true luxury escape for grown-ups. The owners were so accommodating, particularly for our dogs, providing old towels and a throw for the sofa as they have a hound and realised they are never happy unless they watch tv from the sofa too! We stay in cottages quite often and this kitchen exceeded everyone of them with it's equipment, with enough crocRead morekery and utensils to make self catering a pleasure. We went out and about and explored, enjoying local markets and a change of pace. Great break! Hide

Dawn, 13th August 2018

We had a wonderful time, everything was perfect at the cottage and the hot tub was brilliant.
