REVIEWS from our guest book

We had a fabulous week here. Superb accommodations. Everything provided and stunning views. David and Dorcas catered for us Saturday night which was great. We’ve been canoeing along the canal, helped pull out a dead sheep, had lovely walks from the house and around Hay. We’ll definitely look forward to coming back.”

“Thank you Anna and family. Perfect hosts – amazing place. You have done an incredible job of renovating a building that needed TLC. We have all enjoyed the views and peace sooo much, we are coming back. We cannot fault the place or hosts – positively perfect!”

“What a lovely, comfortable homely house in such a beautiful setting. We had a family week of birthday celebrations as well as our Golden Wedding. Hay-on-Wye is unique – we could have spent several more days there – especially at Shepherds Ice Cream and Booth’s Bookshop. A lovely find for us was the Welsh Rarebit Centre at Defynnog, Brecon Beacons National Park. Our grand finale was our visit to the Brecon Steam Railway – scenic routes in bright, sunny spring weather (no rain all day!)”

“What a lovely, cosy haven. We love the Meeting House and we’ll def be back! The house is well equipped and has amazing views. We had a few fires and played lots of games after we’d been out exploring the countryside – the show caves near Brecon, Hay, Hay Bluff, horse riding at Grange Farm and Capel-y-Fin.”
