The space
A warm, spacious en-suite room with private entrance in a 17th century cottage in the village of Clyro, 1 mile from the book town of Hay-on-Wye. Fully renovated last year, this room has oak floors, original oak beams, high ceilings, a large bathroom with bath/shower, French doors leading onto a terrace and the South-facing garden. Large windows flood the room with natural light and green views surround. Centrally heated and packed with insulation, the room is warm and toasty.

If the breakfast basket is included in your booking (see note above) this will be delivered the night before, so you can wake up and enjoy a leisurely breakfast whenever you like.

It is an ideal spot for exploring Hay-on-Wye, the Black Mountains, the Wye Valley and the Brecon Beacons.

Pottery Cottage was the home of the potter Adam Dworski and he established the Wye Pottery in the room which is now the B&B.

We moved to Clyro in September 2011 after seven years living in Buenos Aires, Argentina where our boys, Seth and Bo, were born. Oliver wrote 'Viva South America!' (Faber) during this time. Since then we have travelled to India twice, including six months in a homestay in Kerala, while Oliver was writing India Rising (Faber), a summer in a trekker's hut in Holland, six months on the Uruguayan coast, two months in Andalusia, and one month travelling around Europe by train. After gutting and renovating Pottery Cottage, we settled down in the Welsh borders and Oliver wrote a book about this area 'Under the Tump' (Faber). We are now living part of the year in Porto and doing our best to learn Portuguese. We sold Pottery Cottage to a friend in 2019 but Emma continues to manage the cottage.
