  • "The cottage is well set up & cared for."

    , spotlessly clean & comfortable. We knew about the stairs & they were a bit difficult for me as I am late 70's & not in the best of health. However, with care it did not spoil the holiday. It is ideally situated on the outskirts of Hay & quite close to the walks along the River Wye. Another good Sykes cottage.

    Thank you very much for your review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. Property Owner

  • "We had a very enjoyable week's stay in March."

    we found the cottage both warm and nicely furnished and which also had very comfortable beds. It is a great location for the town's bookshops and the car parking was excellent and also conveniently located. We strongly recommend that visitors try eating at the Tomalitos Tapas Bar on Lion Street. Really good choice of food , close by and the owners are friendly and helpful . Open because of staff shortages from Wed thru to Saturdays-but may be that situation will change. We had a problem with the TV but I gather that that has been resolved by the purchase of a new TV!

    Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay at the cottage and your time in Hay-on-Wye. Indeed the cottage is now furnished with a new Smart TV & DVD player, so thanks for your feedback on this, and sorry you didn't get to use it yourselves. You would be welcome to visit again.

  • "This is the perfect spot to get to know Hay and its surrounding area."

    The house is central, 5 minutes walk to almost anything you like in the centre of Hay or the Co-op on the "outskirts", but it's magically quiet in a small back lane, with no traffic past the front door. The dedicated parking spot at the rear makes it easy to unload any luggage safely and the storage/bike shed is a great addition. The cottage is definitely compact, but it doesn't feel cramped and the thoughtful layout of the rooms, the storage and the all the creature comforts you could possibly want for, make it a super comfortable and top quality stay! Lovely details on arrival of complementary hot drinks, milk, fresh juice and biscuits were a delightful welcome after a long journey, and helped us recharge and settle in while we got ourselves ready to explore! The beds are really comfortable, the house is warm and very well heated for a super cosy winter stay.

    Thank you for the feedback; we're glad you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. Property Owner

  • "Cottage was in an undesirable untidy location Cottage was end of a terrace of 7 No garden."

    Patio area was at the other end of the terrace on a patch of gravel Kitchen and shower room too small No outlook on any side. A travesty of a holiday let and very expensive We came straight home

    We ask that you read our response before taking this review too seriously. The cottage is an end of terrace Victorian workers cottage which is better described as characterful, charming and cosy than spacious, but, the kitchen is the size of the kitchen in the photo, the shower room is the size of the shower room in the photo. There is a garden, and it is the one in the photo. The cottage is a 5 minute stroll from the centre of Hay-on-Wye, but it is true that if you were expecting, say, ‘herds of wildebeest..’ then you might find this undesirable. We have been informed that this guest “booked the property without fully checking”; and we would urge future guests to have a look at the photos and description before booking to ensure that it suits their needs. We are sorry that this guest felt the need to leave such an unfair and unkind review, but we ask that potential guests use their own judgement in deciding whether to book Page-turner’s Cottage.

The property

Resting in the ancient market town of Hay-on-Wye on the Welsh/English border, is this superb end-terrace cottage, Page-turner's Cottage.

Sleeping up to three guests and set close to all the amenities, Page-turner's Cottage is a delightful setting for a couple or small family, as well as a couple of friends to admire the area from the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

You enter the property into a porch, where you can leave any coats or shoes before stepping into the charming living/dining room, where there is a seating for all guests to enjoy an evening meal around the dining table or to cuddle up on the sofa in front of the television, as the gas fire warms the room.

Moving into the kitchen, which has everything you need for a self-catering holiday, you can cook up a storm, prepare a picnic, or take a light breakfast and your morning coffee out into the rear courtyard where there is furniture to enjoy the fresh air.

Climbing up the wooden staircase, there is a single bedroom which is a great spot for a bit of privacy, and a shower room so guests can freshen up after a long day, or alternatively get ready in style for their day ahead.

To complete the property, there is an immaculate double bedroom with a splash of red colour throughout and large airy windows, as well as lots of storage space for those guests who slightly over pack.

Outside is very peaceful, with pedestrian access only towards the designated parking space for Page-turner's Cottage, and a gravel garden to the side with furniture to enjoy your lunch in this sun trap spot.

Note, that whilst you have access to your own garden space, it sits directly next to the other cottage gardens, as shown in the photos.

There is also a handy private shed which can be used for bike storage.

Page-turner's Cottage is just a stone's throw away from the exciting book shops, antique shops and eateries that Hay-on-Wye has to offer, and the town is a popular destination for book lovers as it is famous for its Hay Festival of Literature as well as boasting a gorgeous castle.

Resting on the edge of Brecon Beacons brings ample opportunity for guests to enjoy stunning scenery and activities such as walking, cycling, fishing, birdwatching and canoeing.

Nearby you can discover the Black Mountains where you will see some outstanding waterfalls, or explore parts of the Offa’s Dyke Path which stretches from coast to coast and overall goes through eight different counties.

Within driving distance is the cathedral city of Hereford with its library being home to Mappa Mundi, and boasting a medieval bridge and great amount of interesting museums and galleries, including a cider museum!

For a breathtaking trip to Brecknockshire, within easy reach of both English and Welsh countryside, choose Page-turner's Cottage as your base.

Note: This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £60.
