Peaceful holiday cottage that's ideally placed for Hay Festival
Left on 08/29/2013 for a stay in May 2013 | Sue and Martin
Friendly owners helped make our stay very pleasant. Peaceful surroundings and the use of the gardens made our stay relaxing.
Hay is within easy reach so we were able to visit the festival all week.
Lovely peaceful holiday in gorgeous location

We had an idyllic break in this gorgeous part of the country. The owners were on hand but unobtrusive and we bought lots of lovely eggs. This was a great base to explore the local area; we visited the Mappa Mundy and the chained library, both of which were fascinating. We'd definitely go back - it was wonderful waking up to the sound of birds and sheep and nothing else!

Our time at the Granary was better than we could have hoped for.

The Granary is in a perfect location for visiting many of the historical attractions in the area. It is in a beautiful area. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. We had everything we needed. Nothing would please us more than to be able to return.
A relaxing spot

A lovely quiet rural spot. Very welcoming owners. Very cosy & comfortable for the snowy weekend we spent there. Snug comfortable sitting area, spacious bedroom & bathroom & a well equiped kitchen - what more can you ask for. Only initial problem was a cold draught under the front door which a movement of a carpet sorted but perhaps could be seen to.
The perfect getaway

This was the perfect size accomodation for me & my husband in an ideal location for exploring Wales and Hereford. The Hay Bluff and Waterfalls in Wales are a must.
away from it all

We had a really enjoyable time but think the cottage could have been a little cosier. It had a very basic feel to it. The living room didnt make you want to sit in it for long and the bedroom seemed to offer a more cosier atmosphere. Perhaps a good idea would be to have the bedroom downstairs. The owners of the cottage were lovely, very welcoming and hospitible. Nothing was too much for them. I could not have told them that the cottage was a little stark as l wouldn,t have wanted to upset them as they are lovely people and did their utmost to make sure we enjoyed the time spent there, which we did. It was a very good base for that area. The garden and surrounding walks were brilliant. We enjoyed the circular walk from the cottage very much.
A cosy hideaway in the beautiful Golden Valley.

We loved the clever conversion of this unique cottage, complete with circular staircase. Truly Tardis-like, with good-sized bedroom and kitchen, which was very well-equipped. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The location (in deepest Herefordshire) was so beautiful and peaceful, and yet convenient for Hereford, Ross, Hay and abergavenny. We hope to return.

Fantastic self-contained cottage in a beautiful valley close to Hay on Wye and Herefordshire villages. The couple who own the cottage are lovely and on hand to help.
