This Blissful retreat is set in an exceptionally beautiful part of rural England that just grazes the Welsh borders and yet is only a stones throw from cultural town Hay on Wye. Traditional Bwthyn Dwrgi is a quintessential countryside haven nestled on our secluded, organic farm. Relax in your private garden and enjoy views of the sparkling stream framed by hills beyond or snuggle up inside by a crackling log fire. Wander to the pub for dinner or spend a day hiking the majestic Black Mountains.

We feel it is important to note, that unlike many other cottages, Bwthyn Dwrgi is totally private. There are no other holiday cottages on the property and you won't be overlooked by anyone; us or neighbours.
The space is 'English Country Cottage'. We love the cottage and use it for our own family too, so we hope it feels as personal and welcoming to your family as it is for ours. The Cottage has been listed with other companies for years and has some loyal followings! Its old fashioned and charming, an eclectic getaway with higgledy piggldly stairs, original artwork and open fires. ( Some of the local artwork is for sale, if you like a piece please ask at the farm.)
The Vintage bedroom and Rose bedroom both have double beds and the Lavender bedroom has a queen - the perfect child's room or a cosy nook for an adult!
The kitchen has an open fire/wood burner as does the sitting room. We provide one basket of logs for each fire. The cottage is central heated so even with out log fires its toasty warm.
Bwthyn Dwrgi is very well equipped and has space and privacy. Great for BBQ's, romance and children's games in the endless fields, garden and stream. Why not have a picnic in one of our organic meadows? (You are welcome to use our fields but please ask at the farmhouse which ones are suitable.)
Bwthyn Dwrgi comes equipped with a garden table, chairs, BBQ, small fire bowl and there is a lock up shed for bicycles. If you require to bring your horse, stables/paddocks are located at the farm, there are fabulous rides on the hills.
Enjoy the best of both worlds, unspoiled countryside and the cultural bustle of famous Hay on Wye. Hay on Wye is a beautiful Norman market town, famous for its bookshops and only a ten minute drive from Bwthyn Dwrgi. Don't forget to sample the yummy local food that Hay market provides (Thursday morning) or have dinner by the River Wye at the dreamy River Cafe (has a vegan menu). And don't forget ,during the Summer months, to rent a canoe, and spend the day swimming/canoeing on the spectacular River Wye.

Enjoy starry night skies unburdened by light pollution (or any pollution).

There is a small drive way with room for three cars. Ample parking space off road. If you wish to bring more cars or a caravan let us know and we can provide additional parking.

The cottage is situated at the end of our drive way. There is always someone in our house to assist you if needs be. We like to give our guests privacy and don't bother them unless absolutely necessary. If you would like to come to The Cwm to say hello please feel welcome anytime! If you need assistance please come to the farm.

Other things to note

No wifi or reception at the cottage. The cottage is supposed to be a break from the rush of the modern world. Ditch your mobile and cozy up by the fire pit with a glass of wine.
