Pottery Cottage has lots of books for guests to read and enjoy during their stay.
In the B&B it is mostly a selection of books by local authors or writing related to the landscape in this part of the Welsh Borders. We have signed copies of books by authors who have stayed at Pottery Cottage, and the bathroom is a poetry-only area.
We also have copies of Under the TumpViva South America! and India Rising by our own Oliver Balch.
Read an ‘Editor to Author Interview’ with Oliver Balch:
Under the Tump: Sketches of Real Life in the Welsh Borders by Oliver Balch (Faber & Faber, 2016)

Several shops in Hay-on-Wye sell signed copies of Under the Tump, including Addyman Books, Richard Booth’s Bookshop, The End, Hay Deli, Eighteen Rabbit, The Old Electric Shop, and Old Forest Arts.
