Self-catering in Hay on Wye. Dream cottages and breath-taking locations.

It is a truism that interesting towns are made interesting by the people who live in and around them. This is certainly the case with the splendidly anarchic, creative, beautiful town of Hay-on-Wye. And some of these people happen to own beautiful holiday cottages, too. This curated collection of lovely self-catering holiday cottages has Hay as its focus, and all of them are in unspoilt locations, up to a half-hour's drive through pretty countryside. Famous, as everyone knows, for its second-hand bookshops and annual literary festival, Hay is also a great place to shop for antiques and curios, paintings, crafts and artworks, and fine local produce.

Activity holidays are brilliant here: canoeing and kayaking, fishing and swimming, wildlife-spotting, riverside strolls, brisk mountain walks, climbing, riding, and mountain-biking. And the area is a rich resource for the sightseer, with abbeys, Norman castles and churches too numerous to visit in one go. So, why not book a cosy cottage with a wood burner, perhaps a stunning view, or a colourful, decorative interior, and come and visit?

Then come again... and again... and again...
