Guest feedback

We had a fantastic stay. Emma was lovely and friendly, the room has been beautifully done. Breakfast was absolutely delicious. It’s all been very well thought through with attention to detail, we’d definitely come back.

Garden in bloom

Garden in bloom

It’s lovely to see the garden springing into bloom. For 18 months it was a building site with piles of rubble, junk, wood and stone on a sea of mud, so it is very cheering to see it busting with colour. Raspberry and blackberry bushes went in today, so we look forward to a bumper crop of fruit from them along with the apples, cherries, figs and blueberries, and there’s a spot in the corner for a small plum tree. Fruit from the garden will be included in the breakfast basket!

We’re somewhere between a B&B and a self-catering cottage

We’re somewhere between a B&B and a self-catering cottage. A small cottage (previously a pottery and long before that, a carpentry workshop) with a private entrance and breakfast delivered in a basket. We advertise it as a B&B, but if you would like a self-catering option – perhaps for a longer stay – please ask. There is a fridge, toaster, kettle and coffee press in the room but we can add a microwave on request. We can also recommend Love Patisserie in Hay who make very tasty food to take away, and Hay Deli sell really yummy curries, so you can eat (heat!) well without much preparation. Hay market on Thursdays has a fantastic cheese stall, and Stuart the Greengrocer will sort you out with all the best fruit and veg. Freshly baked bread can be dropped off daily at 9am. For basic supplies there is a shop a couple of minutes walk away from the cottage.
