Tranquility on a unique country estate


Arriving at Upper House & Spa, the spirit of the place transports you into a different world, where the past meets the present. Here, the views are breathtaking. You immediately feel a sense of calm.

Located in Craswall near Hay-on-Wye, sited high up on Black Hill, a spectacular landmark forming the border between Wales and Herefordshire, Upper House & Spa is a very special holiday retreat to escape from it all in style and comfort. We offer modern luxury with our two well-appointed, converted barns, where contemporary interiors meet traditional architecture.

Discover our family-friendly Black Hill Barn or our romantic Starlight Cottage. Enjoy a sophisticated self-catering holiday experience tailored to suit you. Revive in our sauna and spoil yourself with a spa treatment.  Massage and Yoga available upon request. Sit and enjoy the wonderful views and tranquility from your private gardens and terraces. Uncover ancient springs, old drover's roads and even a Bronze Age tumulus on our spectacular 70-acre land set beneath the ancient Offa's dyke on Black Hill. 

Most of all, at Upper House & Spa, you can immerse yourself in nature and unwind in total peace. With its Dark Sky Status, the Brecon Beacons National Park guarantees an amazing stargazing experience. Explore the splendours of our region. It is a walker's paradise with the Black Mountains, the Brecon Beacons National Park and Offa's Dyke Path, all on your doorstep. Well behaved dogs are welcome too. Discover the farmers' market or find a classic book in one of the famous bookshops of Hay-on-Wye. Explore the cultural heritage. And for the "bons vivants," there is no lack of gastronomic experiences to be had in the vicinity.
