The Bear Bed and Breakfast at Hay on Wye

The Bear is closing

The Bear is closing on the 26th September 2017. After five and half years of throughly enjoying running The Bear as a bed and breakfast we have decided to take a bit of a leap and expand the business so that Andrew can give up his desk job and join me full time. We'll be staying in Hay, and we have purchased the old Lion Street Garage, a 1940's light industrial building (with possibly the best views in Hay!). We intend converting the garage and old cottage into a small eight bedroom hotel. Work is unlikely to start until late 2017 or early 2018 with a planned opening date of Spring 2019 ... watch this space for progress.

In the meantime we'd like to thank all of our fantastic guests who've stayed with us over the last five or so years. It's truly been a fantastic experience meeting you all. We've been surprised by just how much we've enjoyed sharing our house, but it's also been enriching - thank you so much for sharing your stories and a small part of your lives with us. Keep well and we'll hopefully see you at the new place!

David & Andrew
