Our barn is close to Hay on Wye, famous for its Literary Festival. Up to three cosy bedrooms available for couples, families, groups of friends and individuals. Breakfast included.
Hay on Wye is a haven to unwind, relax & explore the numerous book and craft shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants. We are situated at the northern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park with easy access for walking & exploring the Black Mountains & Brecon Beacons as well as canoeing & fishing on the River Wye.

The space

This listing is for the double bedroom with ensuite shower room. The Hay Barn is Grade II Listed, was converted in 2010 and is our own home. The three listings we have are for guests who are looking to stay in one, two or three of the bedrooms so sleeping from two to six people, if required. If guests wish to book more than one room then please access the other two listings to arrange the remaining bookings or contact us. The three guest bedrooms are located on the first floor and consist of a double with an en-suite shower room and two further bedrooms which are available as doubles or twins both of which share a large family bathroom with a bath and separate shower. Our own bedroom and ensuite bathroom is up in the loft on the second floor and at the opposite end of the barn to the guests' bedrooms. The barn has underfloor heating and is therefore warm and cosy - a particular treat in the winter months - with the added benefit of a roaring log-burner in the living room for those chilly evenings. Our beds are super comfy, have feather and duck down pillows with anti-allergic covers and 600tc Egyptian cotton bed linen.

Guest access

Guests have access to our open plan living, dining and kitchen areas on the ground floor of the barn and are welcome to join us in the evening to relax should they wish. There is a separate toilet on the ground floor as well. Guests also have access to the landscaped garden to the rear with views to the hills and adjoining fields. To the front of the barn is a large open and easily-accessible lawned courtyard, this being a communal area shared with our neighbours.

Interaction with guests

We are very flexible and relaxed and anticipate that guests will wish to socialize, especially given the open plan nature of the living space, but we do also respect their privacy, of course.
At breakfast you will have a choice of full english or continental as well as fruits and kefir - all based around a healthy start to the day. Our fresh organic eggs are from our own chickens who enjoy the freedom of the garden and are naturally fed.

Other things to note

Our barn is part of a small group of six 250 year old very attractive and characterful converted barns which are Grade II Listed and are set around the open courtyard at the front. We along with our neighbours respect each others' privacy.
The barns are surrounded by beautiful rolling hills and farmland where a neighbour farms sheep, cattle and arable crops. Local commuting is generally by tractor!

A wonderful weekend spent in a quiet location. The Hay Barn is a gorgeous home, extremely comfortable, and spotlessly clean. Amazing views from our bedroom window. Michael and Liza could not have been more welcoming. They obviously enjoy creating a perfect guest experience. Every little detail thought of. Nothing you need improve. Thank you for the great communication, help with taxi's and the delicious home made, home grown breakfasts. 5 * all the way. We look forward to staying again.

Fabulous place and great hosts in the most beautiful countryside. Michael and Elizabeth were very welcoming and helpful. Their huge barn is both beautiful and immaculate and the breakfast a real treat - lots of produce from the garden including the eggs. Highly recommended!!

We had an amazing stay at Michael and Elizabeth's stunningly renovated farm house. It's a magical location, just a hop, skip and a jump from so many areas of interest. Every morning a breakfast fit for royalty was spread out on the kitchen table. Michael and Elizabeth were fascinating people with a great sense of hospitality.

Response from Michael & Elizabeth:
It was a pleasure having Julie, Steve & Ayla stay with us during the Hay Festival. We so enjoyed their company and friendship and were glad that they were able to take in some of the other local interests as well as the Festival itself in this beautiful part of the country. They were also very appreciative and responsive to what we had to offer and so we pass on our very best wishes to them.

The Hay Barn is a beautiful place to stay in a wonderful area. Michael and Elizabeth were amazing hosts. From the moment we arrived we felt comfortable and relaxed. Breakfast was 1st class and the whole stay was life enriching. Thank you both.

Michael and Liz were absolutely great, from the moment we booked they were in constant contact asking about our needs and what our plans were. The ban conversion was absolutely gorgeous with all finishes done to the highest standard. Michael even helped us in finding a taxi company to take us to the wedding venue we were hoping to get to. I really couldn't recommend staying here enough.
