The Owner Says

Our welcoming house is the place to really unwind. You feel far away from the hustle and bustle yet are within walking distance of Hay Town centre. Sleeps 6 (you let us know if you want doubles or singles) with the option to sleep an extra person or 2 on a comfy double sofa bed in the sitting room. Large open plan sitting and dining area with vast picture windows overlooking the river through surrounding woodland. Lots of wildlife and birds to observe for those who sit patiently on the sofa and watch, or go out on the veranda for a spot of ‘forest bathing’. Well equipped kitchen, a good shower room and additional toilet. This little house is spacious, practical, beautiful and lovely and warm. It has a light environmental footprint. There is a T.V., underfloor central heating and plenty of hot water. It is simply all you need; warmth, space, natural light and beautiful landscape.

About The Bothy at Racquety Farm

Suitable For

The Bothy is in woodland perched high on a bank above the River Wye. Being in The Bothy is like living in the trees. There is a sense of peace about this location that touches everyone who stays there. The forest is all around you yet there are glimpses of the river just below you and paths that will take you onto our beautiful river bank just a few yards away.
The property is modelled on a traditional 'bothy' providing practical living space, but this one has more than a touch of un-ostentatious luxury. It is warm and cosy, yet full of light, quiet (just right for a spot of meditation) yet only 10 minutes walk from the centre of Hay-on-Wye.


The mountains, the woodland, the friendly, genuine people, the places to explore and the unique nature of Hay-on-Wye

Food & Drink

Highly recommend are St Johns Place (bistro/restaurant), the tapas bar called Tomatitos and all the pubs do a good Sunday Lunch.
