We picked the Three Cocks hotel as the base for our 22nd wedding anniversary weekend, staying for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Roy and Judith are excellent hosts and very helpful. They employ local young people to help out and are doing a good job of imbuing them with a work ethic without being patronising. The food was good and the bed was very comfortable - normally my wife doesn't sleep very well in a strange bed at least on the first night but we both had quality sleep throughout our stay. The area is rural and because of that there is very little traffic noise. Hay on Wye is only about 6 miles away. Hereford, Brecon and Builth Wells are all within an hour's drive. There is a lovely flat - topped hill a few miles to the east, above the remains of an ancient stone circle (not very obvious but there is a car park beside it now). The hill can be climbed in about 20 minutes from the car park and is popular with parascenders. I climbed it on the sunday and the views were excellent. The area is home to small herds of ponies and Shetland ponies - I found the Shetland ponies on top of the hill.
