My husband and I stayed in Lower House for the first two night of our honeymoon. We arrived and immediately felt a everything drop off our shoulders. Lower House is truly special and I really couldn't fault it. Nicky and Pete are wonderful hosts; warm, kind, considerate, attentive and both go out of their way to ensure that you have... More

We had a long weekend staying in the self catering Plas Bach; it was lovely, It is very quiet and comfortable with a lovely veranda overlooking the gardens and the stream. Nicky and Pete are very welcoming hosts and with the Welcome Basket and the provisions there you don't have to worry about taking salt tea coffee etc for the... More

A beautiful place to stay. Nicky and Pete were very welcoming and helpful. Delicious breakfast and great recommendations of places to eat in Hay. There are fantastic book shops in Hay and delightful places to visit within a short driving distance. However, you could abandon your car and spend time walking Offa's dyke.

We stayed here on the 3rd and 4th of July, for a little anniversary and it was absolutely perfect. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we felt as though we were actually staying with family somehow! Nicky and Pete have the most amazing house and garden, it was not a surprise to learn that it's featured... More

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
