Another return visit to Nicky and Pete's beautiful house. We have been going for years ,and what always impresses me is that they keep their standards so high. The bathroom's are always perfectly presented, and you never see cracked tiles or mouldy grouting and sealant that you see in so many so called first rate hotels. They keep their standards... More

We stayed for a long weekend at Plas Back, the little hut in the garden. Next to a gently babbling stream and set in lovely gardens it had everything we needed for a lovely get away. The owners are very welcoming and most thoughtful in all the provisions and facilities, which worked perfectly. We couldn't have asked for more. Having... More

Nicky and Pete Daw have a unique home just a few feet inside the Welsh Border sitting within a magical garden. We were welcomed with tea and cake and a host of information to make us feel at home. The bedrooms were enchanting, the breakfast was wonderful and Nicky and Pete the perfect hosts. It was a few days of... More

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

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
