3 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

We picked this because it was an individual place, close to Hay for the festival and was reasonably placed. We stayed in the house and it was a large room, clean with 2 towels each.With the skylight and loose blind you're woken early but it is quiet and the views are pleasant. Bathroom is shared but not busy, hot water... More

Absolutely incredible place, beautiful views and serenity all round. We made the most of just sitting on the porch and admiring the views, and its proximity to Hay and the black mountains. And Daphne is awesome!

Wonderful location, so peaceful and interesting. Daphne is a kind and lovely person, there if you need her, but not at all intrusive. I was in the Bijou caravan which was bijou, but just right. Amazing, really unusual place, never been anywhere like it. . Can't recommend it enough, although tempting to keep it as my own secret hideaway, so... More

An amazing place to stay if you are looking for something cute, hippy and unusual. A lot of love and care taken with this beautiful chapel-like accomodation. Cosy inside but had enough room for two couples. Beautiful wood burner will keep it very toasty and warm even in winter but bear in mind the shower and toilet are still outside.... More

We have just returned from a long weekend staying in the Wagon over the Valley. It was wonderful. This location simply forces you to relax and this was precisely what we needed. The New Inn is a slightly ramshackle and definitely homespun place - all reclaimed wood, home made and signs painted with positive messages, chickens, Buddhist paraphernalia and an... More

We stayed in Mother Earth. Its a beautiful space with everything you need for a cosy, romantic stay. Daphne couldn't be more lovely or accommodating. She even delivered us fresh eggs from her hens in the morning.

The thing to be clear about this place is that it is not for all. The simplest way to describe it is; trekking in the Nepalese mountains. Basically you are surrounded by sheep, chickens and other little things. There's no electricity in the wagon itself or hot water and the loo is a drop-tank with saw-dust. That said, I/we loved...

Beautiful space to relax in. We would totally recommend it :-) Daphne is very welcoming and her chickens lay the most amazing eggs, truly free range. The views from there are outstanding, you couldn't ask for a better setting.

I picked the New Inn as it looked a home from home idyll, perfectly placed for us to explore Hay and it's book shops. Daphne is a delight and she works hard to make her guests welcome. The house and owner I could not fault, specially her glorious breakfasts, and adorable cats, however sharing a bathroom with other filthy guests,... More

wonderful place in a stunning location handy for the Wye and not too far from the Brecon beacons. Back to basics stuff in the best way, roaring fires and toasty kitchen warmed by the aga. Daphne is a charming non non-intrusive host. The bedrooms do get light rather early for those hoping to lie in but wasn't an issue for... More
