  • "Thé first error was my own I assumed there would be a washing machine so I’ve only myself to blame, however if it was a young family of four it would make life very difficult."

    The kitchen was very small, and there was not four of everything I.e. one wine glass. There was nothing big enough to cook a meal for four in, we purchased a big wok and a large casserole dish. There was often a smell of electrical burning on returning at the end of the day in the entrance hall and kitchen area??? These are just observations it’s a great setting and we had a good time the house just needs updating where things have gone missing or been broken. I would strongly suggest the installation of a washing machine!

    Thanks for your feedback. You correctly point out that we do not advertise the cottage as having a washing machine. Nor do we accept bookings with children under 12. As well as the crockery/glassware in the kitchen there is also additional in the dresser in the lounge. There is a full set of pans(various sizes) as well as two large casserole dishes(again with additional in the dresser). We are always happy to supply any extra equipment and would have happily supplied you with a wok had we known at the time. With regards the burning smell - we discovered upon your departure that you had melted the handle of the grill pan by putting it away with the grill left on. We quickly had this replaced for our next guests. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful stay at the Old Vicarage Cottage, with easy access to the surrounding areas."

    We completely felt like we got away. The house was warm, comfortable and incredibly peaceful. Hay on Wye is just a walk away and views around there are stunning. The WiFi in the property was very good which meant we could join online meeting when we needed to. We completely recommend if you are looking to get away. There’s also some lovely farm shops in the area so you can easily eat well too.

    The small kitchen was more than made up for by the huge bedrooms

    We loved it, and the surrounding area is gorgeous. Some pubs and restaurants have not fully opened post-covid.

  • "Well maintained and very spacious."

    I loved the staircase. Just as you'd imagine a Vicarage Cottage to be. I half expected to bump into Father Brown. Plenty of local walks for the dog. Quiet location opposite the church. The walk into Hay-on-Wye is very pleasant. Would definitely recommend.

  • "The Old Vicarage Cottage felt just right!"

    Clean, comfortable and cosy. The owners have clearly given thought to making it so. The bedrooms are large as is the bathroom and the living space downstairs very comfortable and spacious - perfect for four people who like to spread themselves out! What a bonus to find USB chargers in the bedrooms! The kitchen is narrow but is very well equipped. Plenty of storage place and a large fridge/freezer. The cottage is ideally situated for walking or driving into Hay-on-Wye, for walks in the local area and visits to places of interest. Tea/coffee/milk and some rather yummy chocolate biscuits on arrival were most welcome after the drive. In spite of Covid restrictions still in place we felt safe and had a lovely week.

  • "Sadly the growing coronavirus crisis overshadowed our entire week, meaning that we were never sure whether we would have to pack up and leave at a moment's notice due to a lockdown !"

    But we were made very welcome at the cottage and were comfortable. It's lovely and spacious, there was adequate heating downstairs but almost none upstairs which meant it was cold there. Heaters are provided but the bedrooms are large.

  • "We had a wonderful stay in this grade 2 listed cottage."

    Beautifully kept with everything we needed. Extras were the dog towel, bags etc and the teabags, milk and Welsh cakes. Highly recommend this cottage.

  • "A lovely quiet cottage for a relaxing holiday."

    The cottage was larger than expected and extremely comfortable. Sadly, the garden was not as expected. Grass either side of the drive and the seating area, although not by the roadside, was not away from the glare of the public. The only way this could be rectified is for the drive gates to be solid as there is no other garden. This comment should not distract guests. The only other comment is I could not find an iron! I would recommend this cottage for a holiday/ break as it is home from home with Hay on Wye 1 & 1/2 miles away, lots of walking or relaxing.

  • "The cottage was such a cosy place to return to at the end of the day."

    We literally did feel it was 'home from home'. So interesting that it played a significant part in Kilvert's time at Clyro. I'm happy to recommend it to anyone thinking of staying in this part of the Britain.

  • "The cottage was much bigger than expected, bright clean and airy, plenty of room for 3 adults and a toddler, two others did not come with us but there was plenty of room for a larger size party."

    The owners had coffee, tea, milk and Welsh cakes for us on arrival much appreciated after a four hour journey. The garden was lovely for sitting in and plenty of parking space on the property. Would definitely stay again.

    Otherwise the accommodation was fine. Not the fault of the owners but perhaps the description on your website.
