Just the place to stay for a visit to Hay on Wye or the wider area.

A perfect cottage for our short stay in Hay-on-Wye, it was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. Great to have our own parking spot and to be so close to some lovely pubs and restaurants. Simon let us know as soon as the cottage was ready and the Welsh cakes left for us were much appreciated. Hopefully we'll be back!

Poets Cottage is such a tranquil and welcoming place to stay. We thoroughly enjoyed it and the cottage proved to be an excellent base. A lovely welcome from our host who explained the basics and some delicious shortbread to sweeten the palate after our journey. We slept so well here, a really comfortable mattress. My partner said he'd never slept so well away from home! Great places to eat nearby but equally if you fancy a night in, there is a delicious local fish and chip shop. We will definitely revisit again soon. Thank you Simon!

What a lovely wee cottage! It's in a quiet location, but only a few minutes' walk from all the bookshops and other wonderful shops, and the pubs, restaurants and river walks. The interior has everything you need for cooking and home-dining, and it's comfortable and thoughtfully arranged, with TV etc, books and wifi, and it's very clean and tidy, as is the bedroom and shower room upstairs. And the hosts are friendly and helpful. Oh, and there's an easily-accessible parking space at the back (parking's at a premium in Hay). I can't think of anything more anyone could ask for...!!
