Set in a large private garden on an organic farm 5-10 minutes walk from Hay-on-Wye town centre this house makes an ideal holiday location for family gatherings or holidays. However the house is compact enough to feel cosy for as few as 2 people too!
Designed to make the best use of the wonderful views of its location on a former tennis court, Racquety Lodge offers a chance to stay in a truly unique house. There are 2 double bedrooms which can sleep 1 or 2 extra people. The rooms can be used as family rooms or make comfortable sleeping for friends. There is also a 3rd large bedroom with 3 x single beds.
There is a large sitting room with a fabulous view and a spacious kitchen, a pantry, and a laundry room to hang those wet coats or swimming costumes in.
Racquety Lodge is next to The Wye Valley Walk and Offa’s Dyke Path. The summit of Hay Bluff can be reached in a mornings walk from Racquety Lodge. There is little need to use the car for either shopping during the day or eating out at night in the good restaurants and pubs in Hay-on-Wye as the town is an easy stroll away on a safe paved path or across the fields.
