    We had a fantastic stay at the Old Vicarage in December. It is a beautiful old house modernised to a really high standard whilst keeping a cosy comfortable feel. The large kitchen diner and large living room is perfect for bigger groups or families. The hot tub in the garden was a hit even in December! We had quite a few kids in our group and they enjoyed football and exploring in the garden, and we made Christmas crafts in the living room. The Golden Valley is stunning English countryside for walking, and the Old Vicarage is so close for trips to Hay on Wye and Hereford. We definitely want to visit again to explore more.

Just 10 miles away is the wonderful market town of Hay-on-Wye, famous for its 30-plus book shops, excellent pubs, restaurants and antique shops, making it one of the most visited tourist attractions in Wales. Surrounded by pastureland and woodland, covered in primroses, violets, celandine and bluebells during spring, the village is also close to the Offa's Dyke and Wye Valley walks.
