Stay in Hay on Wye Cottage
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.
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!

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!

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.

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
“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! “
