About the location

HAY-ON-WYE

Hereford 20 miles.

A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was “the quietest place under the sun” and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.

Hay-on-Wye, the 'town of books', renowned for its world-famous Hay Festival of Literature, lies on the Welsh/English border, and is a popular destination for book lovers or holidaymakers wishing to enjoy the leisure activities and beautiful scenery of the Wye valley. Hay-on-Wye is surrounded by beautiful countryside, which provides excellent walking, cycling, bird watching, fishing and canoeing together with a variety of tourist attractions. A supremely appealing all year round holiday destination.
