Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

1. It should be made clear that there is no parking in the immediate vicinity of the property - we eventually parked 1/3 mile away on the Brecon Road 2. The property does have a pleasant and well equipped bathroom, a comfortable bed and a dishwasher. 3. It should be pointed out that there is no fencing between properties to contain a lively dog.

Lovely stay in charming cottage
Hay is a lovely, interesting and historic town with loads of great places to eat. Most are dog friendly which was a great boost for us. Our dog loved the fantastic walks, long or short whatever you fancy, in the area with stunning views if you climb high enough!!! The cottage itself is typical of its age and type, small and full of character but perfect for two to chill and relax. The owners have made an excellent job of utilising the space to make it cosy and comfortable and it has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Jo was an incredible host considering I contacted her on the Saturday and wanted to arrive on the Monday and she had everything perfect for our arrival including fresh Welsh cakes and jam, tea, coffee and milk. We had a lovely relaxing time and would definitely return.

Comes complete with hedgehog!
Stayed here after a walking holiday and it was the most perfect oasis to laze in. Very friendly owners and a minute or two's walk from Hay's shops - also nearly right opposite a lovely little secret footpath to the church via an old well, and from the church down to the river. Even though it is what in Hay counts as a "main" road there was no noise problem. Great shower and the most comfortable bed I've ever come across. Also the most magical higgledy-piggledy garden with a very friendly robin - and on my last night as I sat reading in the evening, a hedgehog clambered out of the hedge to say hello. Just wonderful, thank you!

Lovely cosy cottage perfectly situated in this gorgeous town.
Really well placed in a great position for access to all the shops and restaurants in Hay and also close to the beautiful church and river walk. This lovely cottage was everything we could have wanted. Clean, well equipped and great value. Our hosts were really helpful and accommodating even providing a basket of logs for the fab wood burning stove. We’ll come again. Thanks for everything!

a great 3 days in Hay on Wye.
We enjoyed our stay in this lovely little cottage everything was just so tastefully done. there is only room for two which is just right for a romantic few days with your love one. We really like Hay on Wye its like turning back the years. We would certainly come here again but for the stairs which was very difficult for my wife as we are both over 80 our legs let us down.

Peaceful
Take a good book with you; light the wood burning stove and you WILL forget the Northern Underground Tube Line (should you belong in London). Apart from a little stress unloading and loading outside (a fairly busy village road) we could not fault this delightful town cottage. (Easy parking nearby). And you also have a very quiet garden patch at the back were you can take your book. And when you have finished your book you will be hard pressed in not finding another....Hay is full of shops selling them!
