About the venue and local area:
Cwmhir Court is an ancient site with Iron Age remains and surviving Medieval and Georgian structures. A fortified Cistercian monastic grange was built here in the thirteenth century and the main stone arched entrance, some of the defensive walls and listed ancient monastic buildings survive. The Great Hay Barn has stunning views across the Wye valley to the Black Mountains. To the rear the woods rise up to the Radnor Hills. The barns are poised in a beautiful spot at the valley’s edge, with the open wilds of Wales on one side and all the facilities of the pretty market town of Hay-on-Wye on the other. It is peaceful without being remote. Hay-on-Wye is renowned for its bookshops and the literary festival that takes place every May. If you're a literature fan then you're sure to love strolling around the picturesque town and browsing through the bookshops. The barns have been restored to a high standard by experienced craftsmen, using locally sourced stone, oak and lime mortar. The Great Hay Barn has a three storey central entertaining space (where will will practice our yoga), with stone flags, oak boarding and a large wood stove. All the rooms are painted in lime white with huge twisted oak beams and traditionally pegged oak framing.
