You’ll feel well cared for in this full of character, beautifully furnished townhouse. For guests arriving late or those who just wish to snuggle in, Julia and David offer sharing boards, homemade soup, salads and local cheeses – served downstairs or brought to your room. Wake to a breakfast table laden with fresh fruit and juices, homemade granola and cake, as well as a generous full English and seasonally changing menu.
You can walk to everything. Explore the castle, walk along the river to the Warren (great for picnics, wild swimming, kayaking), browse galleries, studios and of course the famous bookshops. Foodies have much choice in the popular cafés, restaurants and bars – from tapas, veggie and vegan to traditional pub food.
Order a picnic hamper and head off for the top of Hay Bluff – views from the top soar all the way to the Welsh Marches. Join Offa’s Dyke from here and you can walk all day. Return to the cosy sitting room with a wood-burner, board games and well-stocked bar.
