Centrally located in the heart of picturesque Hay on Wye, this Victorian stone cottage oozes character and charm. Poet's Cottage has been tastefully refurbished with everything you need for a relaxing break in the Welsh countryside. Built in the 1840,s this pretty town cottage has its own garden, which is set away from the property and is ideal for relaxing after a full day exploring the many attractions of this ancient town or the many walk from the doorstep.
Set over 2 floors, Poet's Cottage boasts a cosy sitting room with dining area, modern fitted kitchen, a beautiful master bedroom with many original features and a recently refurbished shower room. With the addition of a small second bedroom we have decided to keep this flexible for the benefit of our guests. It can be utilised either as a dressing room, second bedroom with a single sofa bed, or a travel cot, which is available on request. The kitchen is well equipped for your cooking needs with electric hob, oven and microwave.
Guests have the the exclusive use of the cottage during their stay. There is a dedicated off street parking space at the rear of the cottage and lockable outdoor shed where bikes can be stored safely. The rear of the property is a small enclosed courtyard.
