A beautiful three bedroom cottage nestled in the lush Wye Valley just a short drive (or a 2 hour paddle by river!) from the famous ‘Town of Books’, Hay on Wye, in Herefordshire. With the Black Mountains, Brecon Beacons, Gospel Pass, River Wye and Llangorse Lake all within 20 minutes drive, there is no end of activities on offer.
Yellow Drama is one of three cottages which were once farm cottages built to serve Maesllwch Castle. It is set around a cobbled courtyard which retains many of its 18th century features and is just outside the village of Glasbury with great restaurants, and is just 4 miles from the town of Hay on Wye.
The River Wye, where you can fish for salmon and trout, runs just below the house and a short walk along the banks will take you to the River Café at Glasbury. You could hire a canoe and paddle 5 miles to Hay-on-Wye or 10 miles to The Boat Inn at Whitney, or you could drive the 4 miles to Hay and explore the quaint narrow streets, boutique clothes shops, antique dealers and book stores. Five miles away the Gospel Pass allows direct routes into the Llanthony Valley, Offa's Dyke Path, and the National Cycle Route 42 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.
Directions provided on booking .Glasbury less than 1 mile, Hay-on-Wye 4 miles, Brecon 13 miles.
