    This was a spacious, well equiped, comfortable & warm farmhouse suitable for 8 people in a delightfully peaceful location near Hay on Wye. Beautiful views over the valley in front of the cottage. The woodburner & underfloor downstairs heating were lovely (although we didn't light the fire every day as the heating was very efficient). We were very appreciative of the welcome pack of provisions, particularly as it snowed & the local shops weren't open when we arrived. There was lots to see & do in the area including a gorgeous walk from the farmhouse along Offa's Dyke & up to Hay Bluff. Many thanks. We hope to return.
