Throw yourself into the breathtaking scenery of mountains and rivers by heading off by canoe, bike or on foot – plus a myriad of other activities on offer like a private tour foraging Westbrook hedgerows or gin making with local Adele Nozedar. You could simply mooch and browse your way around Hay, or just stay in with a bubble bath with the Welsh Lavender farmers bath salts or enjoy a massage or other in room spa treatment with Eternal Therapies.

The Location

In the middle of the countryside but just five minutes from cosmopolitan Hay-on-Wye and on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Westbrook Court is a tranquil rural retreat.  An easy base from which you can enjoy the HAY LITERARY FESTIVAL, the ABERGAVENNEY FOOD FESTIVAL, the BRECON JAZZ FESTIVAL or the HEREFORDSHIRE ART WEEK (all events scattered throughout the year) or simply head off for the hills of Hay Bluff or the River Wye.  There are also some great places to eat as part of the “great food movement” that has swept across the region.

Westbrook Court, set in the picturesque Golden Valley is three hours from West London by train or car along the M4.  Also just an hour from Cardiff or the Cotswolds by car.  Remember to embrace the hour of views and the (un)winding roads once you have left the M4 long behind.
