Ladybird Book Farmhouse is a 5 bedroom farmhouse with a large garden and an all weather tennis court which is just 5 miles from the bustling and well known town of Hay on Wye in Herefordshire, on the edge of the Brecon Beacons. A perfect choice for groups of friends or families wanting to take a holiday together.
Hay on Wye is known as being the ‘town of books’. It's a charming town on the border of Powys and Hereford, Wales and England. To the south of Hay on Wye, are the majestic Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons. North and East, are the rolling hills and pretty farmland of Herefordshire. There's plenty to explore in this area. The farmhouse is only 5 miles from Hay-on-Wye with cycle routes passing the door. There is a riding centre just up the road and you can get excellent food at the local pub, the Three Horseshoes, which is just a five minute walk down the lane.
There is no shortage of activities available in the area. You can fish for salmon and trout in the river Wye, hire a canoe and paddle along the river, or join the Offa’s Dyke Path for a day of hiking. The National Cycle Route 42 is nearby and there are walking trail galore, and activities like hang gliding, shooting, rock climbing, abseiling, gorge-walking, rafting, pot-holing, golf, off-road driving, paintballing, orienteering and quad-biking are all available in the area.
