Accommodation at the globe
Smallbrook Cottage Hay on Wye
Smallbrook Cottage is a beautiful retreat right in the heart of Hay-on-Wye. With three bedrooms, there’s room for up to six guests to find a little piece of rustic bliss in one of the UK’s most desirable towns. Originally a family home, the cottage has been renovated with a view to maintaining the original period features whilst bringing the utilities into the 21st century. Think roll top baths, roaring log fires and tasteful, period interior design.
We are located only two minutes walk from the centre of Hay-on-Wye, and an equal distance to the idyllic, meandering River Wye. There are plenty of activities on offer in the locality including gorgeous walks, canoeing and outdoor pursuits.
The cottage is also a only a stones throw from The Institute of Art and Ideas: globe at hay. One of Wales’ favourite arts centres, it offers a whole range of entertainment including art exhibitions, comedy and music, as well as hosting the world's largest ideas and music festival HowTheLightGetsIn every year. As a little treat, guests at Smallbrook are treated to free tickets to all events during their stay.

Hay on Wye
Hay-on-Wye is a small town with a BIG reputation and it’s no surprise given the location. It is surrounded by beauty, encapsulated by the rolling hills of Radnor to the north, the dramatic Black Mountains to the south, The Golden Valley falling away to the east and The Brecon Beacons blossoming to the west.
Abergavenny and Brecon both lay within half an hour’s journey, each with bundles of charm, culture and history. For the adventurous amongst you, there’s a wealth of activity centres offering anything from quad biking to paintballing and rafting to mountain biking.
