Luxury self-catering accommodation in Hay-on-Wye


Welcome to Hay Retreats for a choice of Hay on Wye luxury holiday accommodation comprising of three stunning riverside contemporary cottages, located within a hundred meters of the historic clock tower in the centre of Hay-on-Wye.

Having firmly embraced the British holiday getaway culture, we knew that comfort, style and elegance were mandatory in our five accommodations. Ignoring frills and fuss we wanted clean, crisp, simplicity, blended with luxurious and comforting interiors. You won’t find polycotton bedding, dust-ridden carpets or magnolia walls. Instead we’ve included things in our houses which we would like to find ourselves – Egyptian cotton linen, feather pillows and fluffy towels, beautiful bathrooms, cosy living rooms, and well-equipped kitchens.

These stylish and intimate accommodations offer the perfect antidote to stressful busy lives. For those seeking luxury self-catering holidays in Hay-on-Wye we believe that both our Riverside Townhouses are the perfect place for a romantic getaway, or for time out with friends and family.

Choose from the following accommodation options:

The historic Welsh market town of Hay on Wye, famous for its international literary festival and as a centre for second hand books, is busy with visitors throughout the year. It’s the perfect town to mooch around, visiting the independent galleries, bookshops, and antique stores. There are lots of good places for a cappuccino or a meal out, with a range of quality cafes, pubs and restaurants both in town and in the countryside nearby.
