Hay-on-Wye, Powys, Wales
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.

Everything you need and nothing you don’t. The pavement palace is what you’re looking for in the little town of Hay. It is perfectly located literally feet from the center of town. Lovely pubs, beautiful books, artisan wares and local markets... they’re all right here. The apartment is perfect for two, and could accommodate a family of three as well....
