Holiday Rental House
The Pavement Palace is a unique one bedroom guesthouse, nestled amongst the shops and amenities of Hay-On-Wye. Famous for it's bookshops and International Literary & Arts Festival and now fast gaining pace as the best kept secret holiday destination of England and Wales. Hay is located in the Brecon Beacons National Park with it's beautiful rivers and fantastic hill walks. The town it self a maze of winding streets and alleyways all lined with curious junk and antique shops, clothes shops and galleries. The town is a rare thing these days being predominately independently owned businesses with not a supermarket or chain store insight. The Pavement Palace sits at the heart of the town, close to fabulous restaurants and cafes serving locally sourced fine produce.

The town is a rare thing these days being predominately independently owned businesses with not a supermarket or chain store insight. The Pavement Palace sits at the heart of the town, close to fabulous restaurants and cafes serving locally sourced fine produce. The guesthouse is accessed via a passageway and leads into a fully equipped kitchen and utility area with washing machine and tumble dryer for those keen to take advantage of the walks or local fishing. The bathroom features antiqued mirror lined surround for the bath and shower. Upstairs in the bedroom a stunning super king-size bed sits beneath vaulted ceilings. And for those cozy evenings the lounge includes a wood-burner, comfy sofa, chaise longue and sixties swinging reading chair. The guesthouse oozes a unpretentious rustic style and includes many of the original features, but benefits from contemporary heating and furnishings. A relaxing and comfortable bijou town house, suitable for a small family with up to two young ones or one teenager. Equally ideal as a romantic retreat for two.More

Pavement Palace is a little gem tucked away down a little passageway in the centre of Hay-on-Wye. We stayed for 2 nights in December and fell totally in love with it. The owner, James, is a great host and very friendly and helpful. The apartment...More

This beautiful flat retains charming period features whilst being sympathetically refurbished and modern in the ways that count. It's right in the centre of Hay-on-Wye and couldn't be more convenient for browsing the local shops and restaurants - always with the option of popping back...More
