Stay in Hay on Wye

“An exceptional historic gem in the heart of Hay”

“The rooms are gorgeous – cosy, and beautifully furnished and equipped”

Tredegar House, reputedly the second oldest house in Hay, is the perfect launching pad for exploring the town’s many book shops and independent stores which dot the curving lanes.

This timber frame building housed a pub for 200 years. You can just about hear the ancient pub banter as you sit surrounded by oak beams and watch through the windows as the townspeople pass by.

This spacious house is split over 4 floors. The stylish living room with wood burning stove is on the open plan ground floor next to a smart, well-appointed kitchen which leads out to a secluded courtyard with fern garden.

The master bedroom is furnished with a super king bed, sitting area and en-suite with bath and shower.

A double bedroom with its own sitting room sits up in the eaves of the house with beautiful original wooden floors and beams. A modern three piece shower at the bottom of the attic stairs serves this suite.

The lower ground is home to a small study under a vaulted brick ceiling. Beside it is another sitting room with two single sofa beds.

There is no need for a car here. All it takes is 20 minutes to walk the town circuit. Everything is on your doorstep.

The house is an exceptional historic gem in the heart of Hay that has been sensitively updated and thoughtfully curated. We would also recommend a road trip to discover the beautiful lavender farm linked to this house. We hope to return before too long!  Andrew from London

Four of us, all keen cyclists, stayed at Tredegar House in the heatwave of July 2021.  We had a fabulous stay.  It was a treat for us country dwellers to walk straight out of the house and go about 100 steps to a great deli for milk and supplies, or to a pub, or for an ice cream.  We enjoyed evening strolls around the town and the riverbank.  The rooms are gorgeous – cosy, and beautifully furnished and equipped.  Oh, and the cycling in this area is amazing.

We chose to stay at Tredegar House in Hay-on-Wye for our minimoon during August due to the gorgeous images seen online. It did not disappoint! The house is a perfect balance of homely and luxurious which gave it a special feel for our honeymoon……  The house was so comfortable, and we loved the Welsh lavender touches like the amazing smelling hand wash – we ended up buying the last bottle in the shop next door to take home! Nancy was amazing – always easy to contact and so friendly. We cannot recommend highly enough!  Harriet from Berkshire
