The detail

Wonderfully restored and with the beautiful countryside of the Brecon Beacons on its doorstep, The Peren is found just outside England’s famed book town, Hay-on-Wye. A short walk from the riverside, this converted barn can accommodate up to five guests, but is perfectly romantic if it’s just the two of you.

Double-height windows let the light shine into the contemporary interior, which looks out on a garden and private meadow. It’s warm and cosy too, with underfloor heating and a Swedish log-burner ready to do their thing.

The open-plan space on the ground floor incorporates a modern kitchen equipped with dishwasher, microwave and all the bits and pieces you’ll need to get cooking. You will also find essentials like tea, coffee and milk waiting for you on arrival. The living room is relaxing and full of charm, and has direct access to the garden via French doors. You can enjoy TV, DVD and Wi-Fi while those logs crackle away on the stove.

Upstairs, there are two bedrooms which will be hard to choose between. The master, with its comfy king-size bed and en suite shower, connects via a glass walkway to the main bathroom with double-ended bath. The second bedroom has direct access to this bathroom too, and features a double and single bed. The Peren also offers a cot and high-chair, along with toys and DVDs to entertain the children.

In the garden, you can enjoy a barbecue or a drink on the terrace, and there’s plenty of room for your dog to play too. If you plan to go walking in the Brecon Beacons, you will be pleased to know that The Peren has a utility area in the with space for your boots, coats and any other kit that’s best kept out of sight.

Around 20 miles from Hereford, Hay-on-Wye is the perfect base for a break that takes in both Wales and the west of England. Its bookshops are the stuff of legend, and the annual Literary Festival in May and June has attracted big-name authors and bibliophiles since the 1980s. The Welsh border skims the town, and there are invigorating walks to be had all over the place, not least up Hay Bluff or along the Offa’s Dyke Path.

Mountainous, expansive and unmissable, the adjacent Brecon Beacons National Park has landscapes to fall in love with, diverse sporting opportunities and welcoming eateries. It’s not all books in Hay either, with a regular farmers’ market, tea shops and a boutique cinema among the attractions just a short drive or bike ride from The Peren.

Wonderful property in a beautiful part of the country, even in the depths of January. The Peren was peaceful, stylish and cosy and had everything we needed. We’ve booked to return in May...what more can we say!
