After staying in the self catering little 'hut' tucked away in the beautiful garden I can understand why Lower House is rated very highly. Upon arrival we met Pete who was extremely welcoming. Plas Bach is a great place to relax and escape. Lots of adventurous things to do and see. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys escaping the world.... More

This is a truly unique B & B experience. The beautiful and romantic old house is stunningly presented and feels like a million miles away from work, jobs etc. The Oak Room, as the name suggests, has lovely oak paneling and an abundance of amazing period charm and incredible attention to detail (if Nicky & Peter didn't run a B...

This is our 3rd stay at Lower House and most definitely won't be our last. You can feel the stresses and strains of life fade into the distance as soon as you turn into the drive. Nicky and Pete have created the most beautiful idyll - the house is wonderfully welcoming. You sleep in a bed that is sublimely comfortable... More

We had stayed before in this superb B&b on the edge of Hay on Wye and then we discovered Plas Bach which is just such a perfect place to stay. Nicky & Pete have thought of everything when creating this idyllic self catering hideaway. Waking up to the sound of a babbling brook, early morning walks up to the Black... More

Tucked away in the glorious garden at Lower House is their self-catering cottage, Plas Bach. If you love beautiful plantings, the sound of rushing water,and peaceful nights in a luxurious bed, this is the place to stay. Everything about Plas Bach is close to perfection...from the welcome basket of goodies to the fluffy towels and rain showerhead in the bathroom.... More

Beautiful old house - elegantly appointed rooms - wood panelling, timber floors, Turkey rugs and kilims, a marvellous garden... Add to this a friendly welcome, a splendid breakfast, a drawing room for guest use that includes a Bluthner grand piano... And a dense silence at night that permits a restful night's sleep. One of the best B+B's in England

Back in the garden of Lower house is an amazing tree, with what looked at first sight to be letters hanging from its branches. Having As You Like It from Shakespeare in my mind, with Orlando putting his love letters for Rosalind into the trees of the forest of Arden, I thought that this tree contained all the written recommendations...

Fortune, and a lucky late cancellation, led us to the door of Lower House 4 years ago, and we have stayed every year since, and need only the flimsiest of excuses to go back. I am reluctant to share it, as I want to keep it all to myself, but I really can't be so selfish! If you want to... More

My husband booked this for me for my birthday … what a fantastic house and garden tucked away with a short walk to Hay. Nicky and Pete made us feel so welcome with the added bonus of a superb breakfast. A must for those who love their gardens … A little gem and we will be back!

How can you stay in anywhere in Hay-on-Wye and not stay here? It is the best secret .A total joy. We stayed 2 nights in the Rose room and really wished it had been longer. Wonderful hosts, Wonderful garden. Wonderful breakfast.Yum. A good distance to walk back from dinner in town. Just a lovely,Lovely break from reality.
