Description

The space

Our apartment in the famous book town of Hay-on-Wye is just a couple of minutes from the town centre and offers super-modern, very comfortable and well equipped accommodation. Ideal for up to four, with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, private parking and a lovely balcony for relaxation and al-fresco dining. There’s also wifi internet access.

Haybreaks is on the first floor of the recently completed Millbank, a desirable address on the edge of this picturesque town in the Wye Valley.

Guest access

The apartment is about 60 square metres. All rooms are off a central corridor.

There is a spacious and bright kitchen, dining and living area. With three west-facing widows and a door opening onto the balcony, it catches the afternoon and evening sun superbly. The well equipped fitted kitchen has plenty of worktop and storage space, a capacious fridge-freezer, an induction hob and a fan oven and microwave. Adjacent is the dining table which seats four. To the left is the sitting area , with comfortable seating and a coffee table. There’s a 22 inch web-connected tv/dvd with Freeview channels, plus on-demand iPlayer, and for mellow sounds there’s a Bose Soundlink to which you can connect your phone or tablet.

There are two bedrooms. The cosy rear bedroom has a 140cm wide double bed, and the master bedroom at the front has a 160cm kingsize bed. Both have oak bed frames with comfy mattresses, individual bedside cabinets and lamps, chest of drawers and clock radio. The front bedroom has an en-suite shower room with washbasin and loo, and there’s a further bathroom which has a bath/shower, loo and washbasin.

The balcony, which opens off the living area, has two folding chairs and a bench which seats two, and is a great place to catch the afternoon sun. It overlooks the private rear courtyard area and has distant rural views.

Off the main corridor is the washing machine room where you’ll find an effective, modern washer/dryer. A clothes airer, iron and ironing board are provided.

Heating is via programmable electric wall heaters, and the bathrooms each have a heated towel rail.

There is a private allocated parking space in the rear courtyard which is very useful in Hay, as the on-street parking is quite limited.

The neighbourhood

Why visit Hay-on-Wye? It’s a vibrant small town where there’s plenty going on, dropped into a lovely riverside setting, overlooked by imposing mountains. Around is the countryside of Mid Wales, the Brecon Beacons and the Welsh Marches. It's the nearest thing you'll find to unspoilt in the UK. In the town itself, a cluster of ancient streets surround the hill on which perches Hay Castle, part Norman ruin, part Jacobean mansion. Right on the English-Welsh the border, Offa’s Dyke runs through Hay. There are lots of scenic footpaths, pretty well from the front door, so no need to drive if you prefer not to. There’s also a fab choice of take-aways, pubs, cafés and restaurants.

For food shopping there’s a marvellous deli, two good butchers and a greengrocers in town, and a wider choice still to be had on the Thursday market. There’s also a good Co-op on the edge of town, open until 10pm Mon to Sat, and a Spar shop. In town are plenty of places to eat out. Our favourites are the café in Booth's Bookshop, Tomatito's Tapas Bar, the Old Black Lion and, for a tasty and good value breakfast bap, Hay's Kitchen (also known as Ange's Cafe).

Getting around

Hay-on-Wye is on a regular bus route from Hereford. Hereford is on a main railway line, and has services from London Paddington. There are regular bus services to some surrounding towns. You don't necessarily need a car if you stay here, as the town centre is more easily accessed on foot. However, to explore the surrounding countryside one would be essential.
