Holiday in Hay-on-Wye

Located on the banks of the mighty river Wye, Hay (as it’s called locally) is in Powys, right on the border between Wales and England, in the north eastern point of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Part of its fascinating - and at times bloody - history can be seen in the remains of two Norman castles, while other buildings date back to the 1500s.

Hay-on-Wye is well known for being a book town. As well as having a wealth of specialist and second-hand book shops, it holds an annual literary festival in late May and early June where around 100,000 visitors come to hear acclaimed authors from around the world speak about their work. Hay has a great selection of antiques and curio shops, and independent boutiques. The excellent market held on Thursday mornings from 8am in the centre of town is just the place to pick up local ingredients for a picnic lunch or a delicious dinner.

Hay is a small and lively country town, but you don’t have to go far beyond its boundaries before you are in stunning countryside. Being so close to the Black Mountains means there are lots of exciting opportunities for thrill seekers. You can go off-roading on a mountain bike or in a 4x4, go canoeing, gliding and hang gliding, try canoeing and white-water rafting, climb a rock face before abseiling down, or go caving. Less adventurous sorts can play golf, cycle country lanes, try their hand at clay pigeon shooting, or simply walk to a view point and admire the scenery.

If you’re planning to explore the area, possibly via Offa’s Dyke Path, you’ll find Hay-on-Wye a convenient base. Hereford is the nearest city, being just over 20 miles away, and there are good road links to Brecon, and Builth Wells.

Hay-on-Wye is wonderful at any time of year. Time your visit to coincide with the Hay Festival, Royal Welsh Show (third week in July), or Abergavenny Food Festival (third weekend in September). Browse the book shops, enjoy freshly made cake in a café, or switch off completely in an environment where “peak hour” is no busier than a line of ducks crossing the river.
