Happy Birthday Romy
A Weekend at Romy's
As Summer Fades

From our Visitors Book

“We had an amazing time at Romy's in spite of the typical wet Bank Holiday weather. From the moment we arrived we knew we'd found the right place; going through the narrow railway bridge and crossing bridge over the stream it felt like our adventure was just starting. The barn was beautifully done up and comfortable for a family of five and a large dog. The lack of tv was massively overcome when Romy set us up to watch Titanic in the adjacent home cinema; huge screen, great sound and toasty roaring fire; bliss!! Romy is a natural host, whose attention to detail, easy friendliness and generosity combine to perfect effect. She looked after us extremely well, seemingly always on hand when we needed her and yet we felt very private most of the time. If you're looking for somewhere as a base to explore midWales we would definitely recommend you stay here.” James & Family, from Hay on Wye - our very first Airbnb guests, 2016

"Romy is a great host and was great with Oscar - an energetic 6 year old. Lots of things to see in the area and lots of interesting books and a cinema!
