Drover's Rest offers a unique mix of 'cool' high end accommodation at affordable prices, quirky facilities and a truly spectacular rural setting.

Its stunning location on the outskirts of Hay on Wye, at the foothills of the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons, means there are a myriad of great outdoor adventures on your doorstep ..thats if you manage to tear yourself away from the farm and its host of farm activities and animals mooching about. The owners are only too happy to help you arrange a fab break complete with local insight, recommendations, activities, food & drink on or away from the farm, that will make your gathering truly special, even securing local discounts. The owners are corporate trainers so facilitating large group events, team retreats/reunions comes as second nature to them. They also arrange leadership workshops for children 10 years+, yoga breaks for adults and proper walking holidays too.

Stay in 5 Safari tents (think luxury holidays on the Savannah!) - the site is shortlisted for a top business award due to its lushness and is often referred to as Glampotel (glamping meets hotel luxury). Sssh!! Its not camping really. Each comes complete with its own shower, kitchen, proper electricity & fridge, 2 separate bedrooms and large open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area complete with wood burner to keep you toasty.

No expense has been spared with the recent conversion of the quirky cottages, Drover's Cottage & The Shepherd's Shack: underfloor heating, wood burners, gorgeous beds, en suite bathrooms with powerful rain showers. All bedding is luxurious feather down, Egyptian cotton, fluffy towels & gorgeous Welsh blankets specially made from a local mill. Enjoy the scatter cushions, sheep skins, cool industrial tables, French painted furniture and vintage crockery.

Booking all accommodation or even just the 5 Safari tents gives you free exclusive use of the Chill-out space in the Hay Loft, perfect for groups. Its uber-cool style complete with cocktail bar, cafe and lounge area. Daily breakfasts, cake & dinners 3 x a week available.
