Sleeper’s Castle  – a mysterious name for a house on the border between England and Wales. Sue lives here but is heading back to Australia for a year, she lets friend Miranda live there rent free if she’ll look after it. Miranda finds the house’s creaks and groans very mysterious…..Catrin who lived in the house in 1400 is calling out to her…

If you can tear yourself away from the book and the book festival, Hay Castle plays a role in the book’s landscape and is well worth a visit.
