Enjoying a central location that’s perfect for exploring the Black Mountains, Elan Valley and the Shropshire Hills. With many villages and market towns to include Hay-on-Wye, famous for its book shops and festivals and Hereford, with its cathedral, Mappa Mundi and Chained Library are close. There are many National Trust properties including The Weir Gardens, Croft Castle and Berrington Hall to name a few.

We had a wonderful holiday in Gardeners cottage, it is perfect for three generations including children plus 2 spaniels. The pool and grounds were an added bonus as the children (5 and 7 yrs) really gained confidence in the water and they loved the space to play and run around. Comfortable and quite well equipped for self-catering and bbq. Lots of Read morehot water for post- swim showers and comfy sofas to relax in the evenings. Plenty to do in the daytime and lovely walking area. Hide

This is a wonderful property for a relaxing week in the quiet countryside. It is not too fancy like some houses which, for us, made us more homely and comfortable. It is surrounded by large gardens and mature trees, so the birdsong was sublime. The pool was a great boon for our young adult children and the surrounding area is lovely: bridges for poRead moreo sticks, a river for skimming stones and a disused railway to explore. Hide

ovely house in a stunning setting. We loved the fire and the fact 6 adults where comfortable. Not a negative but the house needs a little tlc ( dripping tap, flaky paint ) but didnt stop our enjoyment,
