SURROUNDING AREA

Hay-on-Wye nestles in a River valley set amongst some of Britain's most beautiful natural countryside and is flanked by the Brecon Beacons National Park to the West and the Black Mountains to the South.

The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits and is a mecca for walkers using the Wye Valley and Offas Dyke Paths both of which pass through the town.

Black Mountains

La Fosse Guest House

'....beautiful natural countryside'

Fishing and Canoeing on the River Wye, Pony Trekking through the hills and many other outdoor activities.

Beautiful Natural Countryside The Black Mountains lie within the Brecon Beacons National Park and are composed of red sandstone. This gives the range its name, caused by a 'Trick of the light' which makes them appear black. There are wide open spaces for the walker to enjoy although there is no 'legal right'. Please follow the Countryside Code and keep dogs on a lead as sheep and ponies roam freely. Buzzards are a frequent sight riding the thermal currents.

'Breathtaking scenery....'
