Stylish Welsh cottage in the heart of Hay-on-Wye

stylish welsh cottage in book town hay-on-wye


Tredegar House, in the heart of Hay-on-Wye, is perfect for Hay Festival stays and as a base to explore the town’s many book stores and other independent shops which dot its curving lanes.  Walking, hiking and canoeing are on your doorstep.  

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.

We absolutely loved our stay here. Hay was beautiful and we spent hours rummaging in the shops, climbed up to Hay Bluff and Pen-y-Fan and feasted on freshly baked croissants. Your generosity in this lovely house is everywhere and so much better than other holiday lets. The ceramics, pictures, backgammon, coffee machine, furniture and other finds. A huge thank you for sharing this with us. 100% we will be back! We really needed this break and return with creative cups brimming. Thank you.

Thank you for a lovely stay, a great place to explore from. Thanks to Nancy and team, the special touches in Tredegar House make it a pleasure to stay. With the house, town and surrounding countryside – it’s like stepping into ‘Middle Earth’. Had a great time.                         Judith & Philip – September 2023

Thank you Nancy and your talented team for creating the perfect getaway, secret hideaway – right in the heart of vibrant, historic Hay-on-Wye. You’ve thought of everything – from comfy beds and linen, super-soft towels and showers that simply work, to well-equipped kitchen and well-stocked larder and great Lavazzo coffee machine. Love the laidback eco-chic, mid-century vibe, original art and clever carpentry, linen curtains and napkins and high-tech TV (great for watching the final Elton John gig at Glasto). Thank you – I hope we will return.
Anna & Andrew, Devon – June 2023

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay at Tredegar House. I am sure this is the oldest, most interesting house I have or ever will stay in. Hay-on-Wye is lovely and make sure you visit the Lavender Farm and stock up on rich, creamy lavender products. Ann, Calgary, Canada – June 2023

We had the most glorious weekend staying at Tredegar House. Everything about it was perfect, from the cosy welcoming living room, well-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, to the fascinating art; what a jewel! The weather was kind to us too, we swam in the river, walked in the hills and had a cocktail at the gin bar. Thank you for everything.  Karen – June 2023 

Had a great stay! The house is ace – love all the places to hang things – hooks! The devil is in the detail. Love the door in the cellar room. Had some nice, rainy walks and can highly recommned tomatitos Tapas and Cosy Cafe. Lovely hand soap too!
Tony & Helen, Manchester – April 2023

A lovely escape away from home.  Thank you for thinking about all of the small details. Tiffany B, UK – April 2023

Thank you for an amazing break away from home. We had a really relaxing time – which is exactly what we hoped for.
Kate, Graeme & Grace, Southampton – April 2023

Thank you, we really enjoyed our stay in Hay. A lovely cottage with everything we needed. Great to know a bit about its past. We will be recommending to others. Last 80th birthday treat – wonderful!
Joanna, Midlands, Louisa, Cotswolds, Marilyn, Bristol – March 2023

What a town! And what a place to stay in it. Slap bang in the historic middle, next to the clock tower, in a gorgeous set-back old house, with (warm) stone floors and wooden beams, modernised in perfect taste. A great work set up in the bedroom upstairs made daytime study a pleasure before nipping out for pre-dinner pints at the Three Tuns and a variety of dinners at the many great local spots (Chapters is a must). Seamless, hassle-free check in and check out experience. Can’t recommend enough.
Arthur, Highgate London – November 2022

What I hoped for!  Beautiful house.  Extremely well appointed. The kitchen especially was very well done.  Service was all as advertised, great wifi and workspace.  Will definitely return soon. Will, Clapham London – November 2022

We couldn’t have been happier with our stay.  The house has all its wonderful originality but with some really clever styling it actually has a very cool modern vibe whilst still in keeping with the age of the building. Every last detail has been carefully thought through, it really does have everything you could possibly need. The house is in the centre of Hay & is in a perfect location for exploring the town itself ( lots of places to eat & cool little shops) & also as a base for some amazing walks. We can’t wait to go back again and enjoy this beautiful house & area again. Cat & Perry, Gotham, Nottingham – April, 2022

“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! “

Planning a honeymoon break in the UK? Discover our Hay on Wye cottage, Mid Wales

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, which is why we’re worthy of being called one of the most wonderful rural retreats in Wales.

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!
