Happiness lies behind the Red Door!
We've visited Hay on Wye many times now and have always loved passing the 'little cottage with the red door' and wondering what it was like inside! Well, now we know - and we weren't disappointed. A beautiful, impeccably clean and welcoming home from home, that is deceptively spacious inside. We were there on a rainy, cold November weekend & it was a real haven after a day walking and making the most of all that this lovely little town has to offer. The hosts, Mary & Jo, were great at communicating and very flexible and accommodating wherever possible. The heating was efficient (there's a woodburning stove in the front room too, with logs provided, but we didn't use it) and the water was lovely and hot. Beautiful big bathroom and - this has been mentioned by other visitors, but it's true! - the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in! Wonderful pillows too - it really made all the difference to our stay, because we so needed to relax and have a really good sleep. Lovely touch of milk in the fridge and welsh cakes and local jam to welcome us. Our little dog loved having her bed in front of one of the big radiators and because the downstairs is fully tiled, we didn't have to worry too much about possible muddy paw prints! As stated, there is free parking in the community & sports centre a short walk away and it was no problem to walk our bags round on a sunny morning. The lovely town of Hay has so much to offer (even out of the festival season) - special walks along the beautiful River Wye and, of course, the bookshops, but also other independent shops and art galleries. Well worth a visit and, for a couple who wish to rest and explore, this is the perfect base from which to do so.
Excellent place to stay hosts extremely helpful and kind
Great location, very clean well equipped cottage.
We will definitely return
Perfect cottage, wonky guest!
The cottage is delightful, and hosts Mary and Jo very welcoming. Not quite perfect for me - not because of any fault of host or cottage, but because I have various ‘wonky’ bits and hadn’t realised how dependent I’ve become on several aids I’ve come to take for granted at home. (Mary and Jo are upfront on the site about the disability-unfriendly steep stairs - my problems are different, and they couldn’t have known, so no stars lost at all) — but spotless, well equipped, and beautifully situated - lovely! Thank you.
Excellent location for walking the town. Lovely and clean.
Lovely well-equipped small cottage
A great location just on the edge of Hay-on-Wye a very short walk from the Offas Dyke trail up to Hay Bluff and Hatterall Ridge, the river and Hay town centre. Not a cottage for anyone with reduced mobility - which the listing is very honest about. If there is anything negative to report it is the traffic noise from the road outside, otherwise perfect, we will be back!
Hereford station 20 miles away, intermittent bus service available. Use of car recommended.
The surrounding countryside boasts an area of outstanding natural beauty and the Brecon Beacons National Park offering many outdoor activity opportunities such as canoeing on the River Wye, cycling on the tracks and lanes, mountain biking and walking in the Black mountains and the Brecon Beacons.
Ty Bychan is ideal for anyone seeking a relaxing break exploring the town and its local eating houses and cafes or for those seeking a more active time using it as a base to explore the mountains and rivers. Either way Ty Bychan will provide you with a warm comfortable environment in which to enjoy stay.
