Karen and John welcome you to their eighteenth century house in the unusual town of Hay-on-Wye at the foot of the Black Mountains. The River Wye flows past the bottom of its beautiful garden and yet Tinto House is just two minute’s walk from the Castle and bookshops, the pubs and restaurants of Hay, a hidden sanctuary away from the bustle of the town. We are seconds from the quiet, unspoilt banks of the river or from a walk along Offa’s Dyke up to Hay Bluff or north towards Hergest Ridge.

Tinto House is a noteworthy Georgian town house, with a Regency front mentioned in Pevsner. Built about 1760, with a classical pediment and bull’s eye window, the house looks out over this interesting town, with views of nearby Hay Castle. It has three recently refurbished letting rooms, all with en suite bathrooms and comfortably furnished. There is a central oak staircase and beautiful oak floored dining room with books, paintings and objects collected on our travels. 

There are three stylish and good-sized guest bedrooms on the first floor. At the front a double room and a twin room each looking out over the clock square towards the castle. A larger self-contained suite at the back of the house overlooks the garden. Every room has a television and tea/coffee making facilities.

There is a choice of cooked or continental breakfast with ‘real’ bread from the superb local bakery (no additives used). All our ingredients are sourced locally and are mostly organic including delicious home-made jam, compotes and fruits, tomatoes etc from the garden.
