You will be amazed at what your stay in Hay and the surrounding area can offer. If history is your passion there is plenty of choice. In the centre of the Hay there is the castle and you can enjoy historical walks in and around the area.
There is an abundance of wildlife, the Wye river, beautiful landscaped gardens and if this builds up your thirst you can take in the local cider and hear how the process works at the Orgasmic Cider Company.
There are so many attractions in the area to fill up your days to have a #greatstayinhay

The church was built close to the castle, which at that time was on the mound just east of the church. The present castle and town walls were not built until later, which accounts for the church being outside the town walls.
