Lovely, well-equipped cottage right in the centre of the town - so making it easy to walk everywhere. It was great having an allocated parking space nearby, too. We had a restful few days and enjoyed exploring the beautiful Brecon Beacons countryside.
Beautifully positioned in a quiet location but right in the heart of Hay. Quaint, comfortable with all the modern amenities - including Wi-Fi. A lovely sunny courtyard for a glass of wine in the evening sunshine and all the restaurants and bars of Hay virtually just around the corner. the private parking spot was a particular boon.
For book lovers Hay on Wye is the town to be in and Chancery Cottage is right in the middle! Need I say more? The cottage is delightful and - did I mention that it is right in the middle of Hay?
Oh, and should you manage to look up from your book the swimming and canoeing on the Wye is also wonderful and good food, good coffee, etc is everywhere.
Hey, but don't tell everyone ;-)
We have just returned from our second stay at this lovely cottage. The kitchen and bathroom have been fully refitted since our first stay, now with a dishwasher, washing machine and freezer (in the kitchen) and a roll top bath with separate shower (in the bathroom). A great place to relax in a quiet yet central part of Hay....under 1 minutes stroll to "murder and mayhem".
We are already trying to see if we can fit in another week here next year.

We had a great time at Chancery Cottage, which had everything we needed for a very successful week at the Hay Festival. Everything was as described, was spotlessly clean and comfortable with a proper sun trap of a garden which had the sun all day. The newly refurbished bathroom was excellent, with a powerful shower and lovely deep roll-top bath. A very pleasant 15/20 minute walk to the festival every day, and so much to do within seconds of the front door. Minor points: the corner of the tiny road where the cottage is situated got into a fight with the wheel arch of our car and our wheel arch came off worse! Bear the tightness of the angle in mind if you plan to unpack the car before parking it in the great space provided behind the owner's property in Chancery Court. The addition of a clothes horse or something to put your clothes on when you're enjoying the wonderful bathroom would be good, and so would a lock joining the top and bottom of the stable doors at the back: we all barked our shins whenever the bottom door was open a fraction less than the top one. All in all a great success and we'll remember our stay fondly. Many thanks.
Spent a very relaxing week here, very near the centre of Hay yet quiet - you can pop back with your purchases after each book shop! The cottage had everything we needed and we had a very comfortable week. Having parking is a real bonus in Hay.
We would happily come again.
