Hay-on-Wye is located on the border of England and Wales and is world famous for its literary connections and festivals. The Swan at Hay, once a coaching inn, is located right in the heart of the town, and is an ideal place to stay to explore the area. The fully refurbished bedrooms are comfortable and well equipped. There is a choice of dining options – the casual 1812 Restaurant and the Market Bar, and the Garden Room is well worth a visit with its innovative menu showcasing the talents of the chef and his team.
