We booked at short notice and were pleasantly surprised by what we found. The property was compact but comfortable and clean, with a large king size bed and a well laid out shower room. We found our hosts friendly helpful and appreciated the welcome pack. There is some noise from the A49 as mentioned, but it is not obtrusive inside the house, so not to us at least, a serious issue. The Cottage is well sited for the local countryside but also the many local English Heritage and National Trust sites. It is also well sited for the Severn Valley and Welshpool steam railways. We enjoyed our week and would recommend the property for a couple seeking a pleasant bolt hole away.
