“Gorgeous property to stay in to explore Hay-on-Wye”
Reviewed 16 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Riverside Retreat properties are brilliant! Modern, clean and set out over three floors, the place was easy to find, in a great location to explore the village and the river and near to shops, pubs, a great chippy and of course the great galleries and bookshops of Hay.

We were a party of 4 adults, a child and a dog and arrived after 7pm on the first night and got hold of the front door key simply and quickly. After reading through the folder left by the owners we made ourselves at home very quickly and cooked a lovely meal in the clean and modern kitchen. The booking process and any communications I've had with the owners via phone or email (before arrival and during our stay) has been friendly, professional and of a high level and would definitely stay here again. Couldn't recommend this company and the property highly enough. Well done and looking forward to staying again. Thanks.

“Absolutely fabulous! You won't find a better place to stay in Hay-on-Wye.”
Reviewed 1 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Absolutely fabulous!

I have just spent a long weekend at Hay Riverside Retreats with a friend and relatives during my daughter’s wedding.

The accommodation was perfect, just as described and pictured on the website. The attention to detail from start to finish would be hard to surpass and from my initial enquiry through to my last minute questions both Callum and Poppy were extremely helpful and thoughtful. The welcome pack was delightful.

The house overlooks the River Wye and the patio provides an opportunity to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet while being able to watch canoeists go past or land nearby.

Immaculate, tastefully decorated and furnished, well-equipped (fabulous beds and bedding) and in the perfect location for exploring Hay-on-Wye – we couldn’t think of anything lacking. In fact, I thought I was going to have some trouble in getting everyone to leave because they loved it so much!

I will be back…..

“Riverside Retreats: An Ideal Location to Enjoy Hay & Beyond”
Reviewed 2 July 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Hay Riverside Retreats provide the ideal location for a holiday in the beautiful town of Hay-on-Wye, the Hay Festival (a short walk or shuttle bus ride away) and for exploring the Black Mountains. The town houses are very well appointed, superbly furnished and maintained. Poppy, the housekeeper, and Callum, the property manager, can not do enough to ensure that your stay is comfortable.
We have introduced a different group of friends to this property for the past two years and both groups have made separate and independent bookings for subsequent stays. That is quite a recommendation.
The town of Hay has many independent shops where you can source excellent food to prepare and serve in the beautifully appointed kitchen or, weather permitting, on the terrace overlooking the River Wye.
Bedrooms and lounges are spacious, well decorated and very comfortable.
The Three Tuns pub is within stubbling distance and serves great food and lovely ale.

“Absolutely brilliant, the best holiday accommodation ever.”
Reviewed 24 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We loved this property. It was immaculate, comfortable and with nothing left wanting. Perfect position in the town with a wonderful view of the river. Even better, was the walk along the river surrounded by wonderful countryside. This property will be difficult to follow.

“Amazing property with beautiful views of the River Wye”
Reviewed 24 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

The property was in very good order and very comfortable. It more than met our needs. The staff we spoke to before and during our stay were very helpful. Excellent location overlooking the River Wye and opposite the Arts Centre where we saw the Roving Crows! Julie, Chris and Jane
