    “An absolutely delightful cottage in a wonderful setting.”

    The main attraction for us was the wood burning stove! Our hosts were attentive and thoughtful and could not have been more welcoming. Plenty to do and see in the immediate area and surroundings. A fabulous romantic weekend away!

The property

Horders Cottage is centrally located with just a short walk into the bustling town of Hay-on-Wye, yet is in a secluded location away from it all, offering a peaceful retreat for couples looking for an idyllic stay in Hereford.

This 16th-century cottage has been fully renovated but sympathetically accommodates all the mod-cons within a period property.

There is a sumptuous en-suite with power shower and freestanding bath.

The bedroom houses a double bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and small chaise longue.

The contemporary, fitted kitchen has a fridge, oven, ideal for cooking up a storm with your significant other, with a handy washing machine also.

There is a dedicated eating space where you can enjoy a romantic meal for two, as well as a plush seating area with characterful wooden roof beams and exposed brickwork, so why not relax and unwind at the end of the day in front of a Clearview fire?

Outside, take in the breath-taking countryside views from the shared lawn, or enjoy morning coffee in the sunshine on the private patio as you plan the day ahead of you.

Hay-on-Wye is a charming town offering a selection of amenities and attractions, as well as a convenience store for all of your holiday needs.

Next to the property you will find a lovely pub, the Old Black Lion, ideal for enjoying a beverage in the sunshine.

With the Offa’s Dyke path passing by the cottage, and rolling countryside surrounding it, there are plenty of opportunities to walk and breathe in the unpolluted air.

Visit the historic Hay Castle, or explore the wonderful local attractions, including Arthur's Stone, Bronllys Castle, and Pwll y Wrach nature reserve.

Try out adventure sports at Black Mountain Adventure, or head into the incredible scenery of the Bannau Brychein (Brecon Beacons) National Park, ideal for hiking, mountain biking, and birdwatching.

Horders Cottage has everything you could need for a ‘get-away from it all’ break.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
