Next to the Clock Tower is the second oldest house in Hay. Walk into a big, bright, open-plan space, with three stylish seating areas and a kitchen on the far wall. Turn right to the courtyard, and left to the lower ground floor. In the main room you’ll also find a unique backgammon table, a 48″ TV, and the complete works of Shakespeare!
Cafés, small shops and bookshops abound… next door is the The Poetry Bookshop. Explore the town or spread your wings to Ross-on-Wye (an hour’s drive) to paddle down the river, shoot the rapids, abseil, cave or climb. Or head to Glasbury Bridge and its pebble beach to watch the kayaks skim by.
Bathrooms and bedrooms are characterful and capacious. One room is tucked under the eaves, the other overlooks the quiet street. A good kitchen awaits and a roaring wood-burner.
