We were actually meant to be staying somewhere else this weekend but were found lower house as a replacement due to circumstances. This replacement could not have been more perfect. Beautiful surroundings, comfortable and well decorated room! Nikki and Pete were fabulous hosts, very helpful and welcoming (they even let us use the huge bath which was connected to the... More

This was our first visit to Hay On Wye and our first stay at Lower House but it definitely won't be our last. We stayed in The Oak Room and enjoyed our own little lounge area adjoining the room plus had the use of the downstairs sitting room complete with a wood burning stove and grand piano. Beautifully comfortable bed,... More

You couldn't ask for more from a B and B - Nicky and Pete are exceptionally friendly hosts, the house is cosy and warm, the location is lovely. The woodburning stove glows morning and evening. Accommodation is spacious - two sitting rooms! - breakfast is delicious. A very, very nice place to stay.

My wife and I had wanted to go to Hay-on-Wye (books, antiques, hadn’t been for a while) and chose to stay at Lower House in the main house based in the Oak Room along with the bathroom and sitting room. We were the only guests for the third weekend in November, a week before the Hay-on-Wye Winter Festival. What a... More

This is Nicky and Pete's family home that they have invested much of their time, love and energy into. Set in a steep wooded dell, on arrival you feel a sense of adventure traversing through the exotic and gloriously established garden, which is well defined and wild around the edges, to the front door. Nicky and Pete are so thoroughly... More

Just returned from a fantasic week staying in Plas Bach at Lower house. Nicky and Pete make you feel so welcome. As you cross the little bridge on to their driveway you leave England and enter Wales. You also enter a hidden garden set in a secluded valley. Their is a B&B in the main house (we can only wonder... More

My husband and I stayed at Plas Bach, Lower House for a week at the start of September. It was such an amazing week - the location is wonderful and we were really lucky with the weather. But the holiday was totally made by staying at Plas Bach. Our hosts, Pete and Nicky were absolutely brilliant, they were so welcoming... More

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
