SETTING : The Hideaways-In-Hay Jacobean Town House (sleeps 6) is perfect for that 'Special Occasion Celebration' - significant wedding anniversaries, birthdays or re-unions. It is great for adult children, but its not 'child-proof'. If you have members of your party who want their own pad, the Coach House Holiday Cottage or Stables Holiday Cottages provide a luxurious over-spill for your Special Occasion- book early with your family or friends and take the entire complex!
The kitchen & dining-room (seats up to 12) are to die for, so this house is designed for full family mealtime celebrations. As Alastair Sawday put it, these Hideaways are Pure Theatre, with wow factors round every corner, and when not rented it is our home.
Choosing Brookfield House for your self-catering Rental is like walking into another time. A lovingly restored Jacobean town house on three floors, it has a large, semi-formal garden at the back with lawn & seating areas; a sunken box parterre garden in the front with pleached crab apple trees; & wisteria & roses around the door.
The house is situated in a quiet location, a minutes walk from the centre of the tiny medieval market town of Hay-on-Wye, deep in the heart of the Black Mountains, in the Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales, UK.
