We are a small village with a post office/shop and garage about a mile from Hay on Wye. It’s quiet here and many prefer the ease of parking and lack of late night noise to the town alternative, But you really need a car or be prepared to walk if you come here!
We are in one of the most beautiful areas of Britain; you couldn’t pick a nicer spot to explore this wild and wonderful countryside. On the doorstep of the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons and within walking distance of the River Wye, you will never be short of something to see and do.
The dramatic Black Mountains form the eastern part of the Brecon Beacons National Park, and provide a dramatic contrast to the Wye Valley. They comprise a series of long heather-covered ridges, separating narrow and remote valleys. Here the sweeping views of rugged escarpments and untamed moorland are home to the peregrine falcon and red grouse.
There are an enormous number of walks to enjoy in the area. From the most challenging routes to a gentle stroll, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Driving in the area also provides access to superb scenery. Drive through the national parks (mind the sheep!) and over the mountains on quiet country lanes that provide peaceful picnic spots with amazing views.
Hay-on-Wye is the nearest town with its many bookshops and cafes. We are also within striking distance of the lovely town of Brecon with its Mountain Railway and visitors center.
