“cosiest cottage i have been in, so clean with everything you need for a great break.”

I really loved this cottage with its log burner in the lounge, so warm and cosy. Bedroom was lovely and relaxing and the bathroom with shower was great. The kitchen had everything that was needed to make your break complete, brilliant cottage with equally brilliant owners, nothing was any trouble for adele and communications were first class. I could not find one single bad thing to say about Ty-Bychan because it was so perfect, bags of original features that made the cottage a pleasure to stay in, you just have to go and stay in this cottage. A visitors book is there with everything you need to know about using the appliances in the cottage and lots of leaflets on the table at top of stairs for places to go and see. Cottage is located in walking distance of local shops and of course the many book shops and pubs with food. Will be booking this cottage again, excellent all round. ***** 5 star in my opinion.

“Lovely cottage”

Just returned from a wonderful weekend in this lovely little cottage. Just down the hill from the book shops and pubs with free parking just a minute away. Everything we needed was in the cottage including a scuttle of coal and a basket of wood that we happily used as the weather was not nice outside. But who cared if it was raining and blowing a hooley outside it was lovely and cosy inside. The bed was huge and so very comfortable. If you want a romantic weekend away go for this place.

We had a lovely relaxing weekend in a cosy comfortable cottage. Just a two minute walk from the centre of Haye, It could not have been better. Highly recommended.

“Lovely little Cottage.”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Ideal location in the Town of Books and don't forget the Pub's and Restaurants. Lovely little Cottage. What we Liked best about the Cottage was So clean, tidy and well equipped.
We took our little dog up onto Hay Bluff, visited lots of Book shops and the odd Pub or two.
We would stay again.
Footnote: Stairs very steep.

“Great location and excellent value”
Reviewed 24 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I enjoyed a great week staying in this cute cottage which has a great location in the town
centre. There is a car park just down the road and the main road location is not a problem
as it's very quiet at night. Just perfect as a base for exploring the Brecon Beacons whilst also
benefiting from the attractions of Hay on Wye.

“Comfortable character cottage”
Reviewed 21 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Cosy cottage which does exactly what it says on the information above and the excellent details sent by the owner. The garden steps are steep but that is stated in the details. It is a shared garden and I would hope that dog owners would supervise their pets. We found easy parking close by which was free. A lovely country town. This is a cottage which compliments the town. WiFi is not available but if people can't live without it they can use a smart phone. It might be useful to know which mobile networks give signal. I was ok with ee but talk mobile got no signal at all in the town

“Cosy Cottage in a convenient location”
Reviewed 4 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This cottage is conveniently located (everything within easy walking distance) and is clean comfortable and welcoming with central heating and stove (matches, paper, fire-lighters, wood and coal provided) The bed is comfortable and the property is well equipped with comprehensive notes.

There is a lot of road noise during the day though as it is on the main road through the town and the 30 mph speed limit appears to be universally ignored. Parking is available nearby, but you may have to be out early as restrictions start at 8am.

There is no wifi and mobile coverage was weak.

Dog owners should be aware though that the garden is enclosed but is accessed via a flight of near vertical narrow concrete steps and is shared with he property next door. Thus you can't just send the dog out on their own - you have to climb the steps and supervise. Climbing those steps with a torch last thing at night (there is no outside light) is not for the faint hearted or less mobile (dogs and owners).

Management Response
6 Jun 2015
In response to your review I wish to address some of your concerns. The parking areas and directions that I sent out prior to your visit refers to free all day parking close to the cottage with no restrictions. The one you have chosen to use is not recommended. With regards to the access to the garden I have responded to a previous comment and have emphasised on the website that the steps are steep and narrow so that guests can make an informed choice. Lastly the website shows that Wi Fi is not available.
