** With 3 international airports just over an hour away, you're closer to this book haven than you think. **
With more quirky independent bookshops than you would have ever thought could fit in this small village on the border of England, how have you managed to stay away this long?
How quirky? There’s a fairytale-like castle that’s a bookshop!
Aside from all the books and festivals, Hay-on-Wye the book town is renowned for its traditional pubs and inns, incredible locally sourced food and cider, and a welcoming, easy-going atmosphere.
Hay-on-Wye is a writer’s paradise.
Resting on the banks of the River Wye and surrounded by the unspoiled countryside of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Hay-on-Wye may be the town of books, but when you’re roaming the cobblestones of this idyllic town, you’ll soon find boutiques, traditional markets, galleries, cafes, and many other unique, independent shops, with the splash of creative flare you would expect from a town built by fiction.
Where better to find your inspiration, unleash your creativity, and develop your manuscript?
This beautifully renovated hotel that was once part of the Maesllwch Castle estate is the perfect place to dust off the winter cobwebs and spend spring writing.
All our creative writing workshops and activities are optional. Some days, you may just want to head off in search of inspiration. Walk along the river or take a canoe. Head into the hills or wander around the many, many bookshops. There are also lots of quiet spots to be found in this idyllic setting, where you can finally get your book onto paper.
All you need to bring is a laptop.
