Perthycollie Cottage is a 3 double bedroom converted stone stables with wood burning stove 50 yds from the main non working old farmhouse. Set in the open countryside, with panoramic views of the Black Mountains 4miles from Hay On Wye The Book Town.
What makes our cottage unique are the extraordinary views of the Black Mountains across the Wye Valley. We are 4 miles from Hay On Wye, a 5 minute drive and famous for its Book Festival, Thursday 26 May–Sunday 5 June 2016, but at any time of year our visitors can enjoy the wild peace of the hills contrasting with the culture of the town and its many bookshops.
Surrounded on all sides by beautiful National Parks our panoramic view stretches as far as Pen y Fan, the highest peak in south Wales. We are also lucky enough to reap the benefit of the Brecon Beacons having recently been voted No 5 Dark Sky in the world. On a clear night the starry skies are absolutely breathtaking, the Milky Way and all the constellations are clearly visible to the naked eye and for patient stargazers, the magic of many shooting stars.
Our Cottage is very comfortable, it is cool in the summer and very warm in winter but we have chosen to keep it simple, so it is ideal for guests that want to get back to nature, walk for miles in the hills, swim in the river, shop for organic and local produce in Hay.
Internet can be erratic as we are up in the hills.
Our water is spring fed from deep underground natural reservoirs not mains so there is no dishwasher or washing machine. But it is plentiful and delicious, you will never taste such fine clean water!
The guest accommodation has its own separate entrance and parking. When we are there our guests would be welcome to use the table tennis and snooker table which are on site in a separate barn.
We live in the main house which is in sight but very separate.
It is farming country with alot of sheep, cattle and wild ponies in the hills, so dogs would be rather difficult.
Smoking is allowed outside.
Please kindly leave the property as you found it.
