Romantic bolthole for the perfect getaway to Wales. Walkers and literary fans will get a kick out of staying in Clyro, because it is close to a few picturesque trails – it’s also by of Hay-on-Wye – home to countless book shops and a festival.
Set in the picture-perfect region just north of the Brecon Beacons National Park, in the village of Clyro, you will get a great flavour of Welsh life. A mile or two away from Hay-on-Wye, you’re bound to find any book you can think of. Try out Booth’s bookshop with its small cinema and café. The town is full of tiny wonders and try to time your visit for when the Hay-on-Wye Literary Festival kicks off – it’s one of the best in the country. Why not hike to the summit of Pen-y-Fan, the highest point in South Wales. Train enthusiasts will love the Brecon Beacons Mountain Railway; also, don’t miss out on the Big Pit Mining Museum.

Upstairs is the star feature; its ‘room with a view’ with plenty of natural light filling the room due to its panoramic stretch of windows and king-sized double bed. There is a cloakroom off the bedroom, a full-length mirror, wardrobe and storage cupboards that run the length of the room.
Outdoor dining is a real treat with a choice of the courtyard and two decking areas all perfectly placed to soak up the atmosphere and the landscape.
