The Old Rectory is a five-bedroom Grade II listed period property situated between Brecon and Hay-on-Wye believed to date back to the 16th century. The house was completely renovated in 2001/02 and retains many charming period features including original oak staircase, shutters, panelling, fireplaces and some interesting stone corbels.

The renovations turned three reception rooms across the width of the property on the ground floor into a wonderful modern family kitchen with breakfast room and sitting area at one end and a four oven Aga at the other end – there is also a useful larder with its original stone slab. The sitting room has original shutters, gas fire and fitted bookshelves on either side of the fireplace and the study makes for an ideal home office.

The accommodation in total comprises: hall, drawing room, dining room, sitting room, study, kitchen/breakfast room, master bedroom suite and four further bedrooms plus two family bathrooms and an attic room, garden room, larder and boot room.
