Hayford is the seat of House Hayford in the crownlands. According to semi-canon sources, Hayford is located half a day's ride north of King's Landing along the kingsroad.[1] Hayford sits upon a hilltop and has a stream running alongside the castle.[2] The hidden village of the Lady of the Leaves is located near the Hayford road.[3]


Levies from Hayford joined the host of Lord Borros Baratheon during the Dance of the Dragons, but they abandoned him during the Battle of the Kingsroad.[4] Hayford sent levies for the host of Ser Robert Rowan which marched to aid Ser Joffrey Arryn.[5]
