Explore the traditional Welsh town of Hay-on-Wye with holiday lettings
Hay-on-Wye is an important destination for any traveller. Twinned with the legendary Timbuktu, both places share a passion for the written word. While Timbuktu is a site of Islamic scholarship, Hay is the location of one of the UK's most prestigious literary festivals. In the midst of idyllic Wales, it is the ideal retreat destination.
If arriving in Hay-on-Wye on a Thursday, you'll want to head straight to the market in Memorial Square, where you can snaffle antiques and unique bric-a-brac, fresh baked bread and home-made preserves to set your taste buds tingling, plus some of the best quality fish, meat, fruit and vegetables. It's a great way to soak up the atmosphere of this traditional town.
Locals like to think that a walk through The Warren is a secret, but its soothing ambience is enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. Stroll to this perfect picnic spot where kingfishers dart from St Mary's church and watercrafts negotiate the rapids after snaffling some treats at the market.
Explore Hay's beauty
The Wye River winds its way scenically through countryside that defines the word picturesque. Hay-on-Wye is famous for these sublime landscapes, which inspired Britain's Romantic movement in art, literature and culture. The town was immortalised by the famous Romantic William Gilpin, who wrote about his trip down the Wye river.
Alternatively, head to Hay's Norman castle, or take the 30-minute hike to the top of Hay Bluff and the Twmpa hills. Both will reward you with incredible views over the stunning Pen-y-Fan.
