Contrast and compare Persimmon's sales pitch for the Hay on Wye homes

Read all about it…’ Fantastic new homes in Hay-on-Wye

Readers Retreat is our new collection of homes in Hay-on-Wye. With a mix of new two, three and four bedroom house styles, the development is ideal for first time buyers through to families looking for more space.

Choice of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes

Charming market town location

Perfect for outdoor adventurers

Local amenities close to hand

Well-respected primary school within walking distance

Hay-on-Wye lies on the Welsh side of the Welsh/English border in the county of Powys. It’s a small market town with a big heart and is often described as ‘the town of books’.

It’s impossible to write about Hay-on-Wye without mentioning the annual Hay Festival. It’s a major literary festival that has been running now for 29 years and celebrates great writing and authors from around the world. During the 10-day festival at the beginning of June, the town comes alive with visitors soaking up the fantastic literary atmosphere on offer as well as the stunning surrounding countryside and attractive town vistas.

Living at Readers Retreat means you’ll be able to enjoy Hay-on-Wye’s charm all year round. You’ll have everything you need for day-to-day living close to hand as the town has a good selection of shops (including a Co-op and Spar), Post Office, boutiques, eateries and of course, book shops. There’s also a bustling market every Thursday where you can treat yourself to delicious fresh local produce and grab a bargain. For more shopping choice, the cathedral city of Hereford is 21 miles away and Brecon is 15 miles.

For those who enjoy keeping fit, there’s a leisure centre just over 4 miles from Hay-on-Wye. Gwernyfed Sports Centre, which is run and also used by Gwernyfed High School, offers a fitness suite, sports hall and multi-purpose sports pitches. Plus; the town is in the catchment to a number of primary schools, one of which is the Hay-on-Wye County Primary School – a highly effective ‘Green’ school.

Take a look around Readers Retreat

The great outdoors beckons…

Given that the town lies on the south-east bank of the beautiful River Wye and is within the north-eastern tip of the Brecon Beacons National Park, it’s no surprise that the great outdoors is enjoyed by many who live in Hay-on-Wye. While away a few hours kayaking down idyllic river stretches, explore the majestic ruins of Hay Castle, challenge yourself to one of the many hill walks, or take a picnic to the local meadow beside the river beach and immerse yourself in a good book (you won’t be spoilt for choice!).

We’re proud to be building the first new homes in the town for many years and happy to be part of Hay-on-Wye’s growing popularity as a fantastic place to call home.

For more information on this development arrange an appointment now.

No disrespect to Clehonger (I grew up there)but you would think that properties in Hay-on-Wye would be more desirable? But obviously not…Clehonger's is obviously on the up!

I will put this on here and now another 150 houses for Kingstone have been approved.  No doubt some people will remember this as the 150 houses originally passed as Passivhaus developers a company named Archihaus who failed to get funding for their "exemplary" development.  The pa was then adopted by Lagan Homes (non Passivhaus) and passed as bog standard brick boxes. Personally I am gutted but will have to live with it. https://myaccount.herefordshire.gov.uk/documents?id=9c99431c-7ae5-11e8-b454-0050569f00ae

As an aside Architype/Archihaus are building quite a few passivhaus Council houses around the country but not within Herefordshire. 

However I do have questions to ask and maybe somebody on here can answer them or go some way to answering them.

At what stage will the county reach saturation point for new houses?

Where are people who are buying all these new houses currently living?

Where are all these people working who can afford these houses - the new ones are not cheap?

As an aside there is an app in Clehonger for 80 houses which has gone to Appeal so I expect that will also be passed.

Also an approved pa in Peterchurch for I think 80 houses has also been sold on.

£200k for a 2 bed house?? Seems a bit steep to me for a timber frame rabbit hutch with a window box sized garden.

We are a long way from a house building saturation point in fact we are a long way off building anywhere near the number of homes that should of
been built over the last 20 years.
