On The Map: Eve’s of Hay-on-Wye

It’s that time of the week again… where we introduce you to another one of our exclusive discount map businesses. The spotlight is on Eve’s of Hay-on-Wye, an independent cafe serving all kinds of treats, from fresh made scones through to the finest coffee!

We chatted with Eve herself about running her business, how she likes to start her day and her top recommendations for exploring the Brecon Beacons.

1: Tell us about your business

We are a family run cafe in the middle of Hay-on-Wye with arguably the best people watching spot in town! We serve tea, coffee, scones, and light lunches such as toasted baguettes and toasted sandwiches.

2: What is your favourite Brecon Beacons Holiday Cottage?

We love Hidden Valley. It was once the home of author and playwright, Sir Arnold Weske, founder of London’s Roundhouse Theatre, so very fitting for Hay.

3: What is the first thing you do when you wake up?

We always start the day with a nice cup of coffee in the shop to prepare for the day ahead. We are so lucky where we are in the town that we can see what is going on. When the sun is shining there is nothing better than sitting outside watching the world go by.

4: For someone who hasn’t been to the Brecon Beacons, after they have visited you – where would you send them next?

We recommend customers who are visiting the Brecon Beacons to embrace the outdoors, whether it be hiring a canoe and enjoying the beautiful river Wye, or one of the many lovely walks – for the really active you can’t beat the view from Pen-y-Fan!

5: What’s in store for your business in 2016?

For the year ahead we have lots of upcoming events in the town, the famous book festival is May/June, then there is the history weekend, a vintage weekend, food weekend – there are so many events here that Hay-on-Wye is always a hive of activity and theres no better place to watch it all unfold than from Eve’s of Hay.


Eve’s of Hay-on-Wye is featured on our exclusive discount map. Guests of Brecon Beacons Holiday Cottages will receive 20% off all cafe purchases at Eve’s during their stay!
