We were a party of 9 people and we loved our stay in the house. Margaret was amazing throughout the stay assisting with all our needs. The house itself is in a secluded and quiet place but the local shops/pubs are 10 minutes walk from the house. The house itself is really spacious as well, the car park is huge...

Stayed at this lovely country house in August this year. In total there were 4 adults, 5 children and 2 dogs, and there was more than enough room throughout the house to accommodate us all. The house had everything you could possibly need for family stay including a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. You will also find every other...

Thanks Heather. It was great that you all had such fun in the fields and around the grounds. I could see how much the familes were enjoying themselves, including our two doggy guests Benji and Potter! The fields are great for running about,picnics,making dens, playing "Narnia " type games, and paddling in the stream. Looking forward to your next visit,...

About the neighbourhood
Guilsfield is a village some 7 minutes away from Welshpool where there is a range of independent shops and major attractions such as the fabulous National Trust property Powis Castle, and the Welshpool and Llanfair steam railway. The village itself has two shops open 7am - 9pm daily and two pubs, each with a restaurant within easy walking distance. For gardening enthusiasts, the Derwen Garden Centre in the village attracts aficionados from across the UK.
Yes it is quiet, peaceful and an ideal place to spend quality time with friends and family. No, it's never boring. There's so much to do and see you'll need to come back for more......
Getting around
In a rural area the bus services are I frequent but they are generally reliable. Buses to Welshpool and Oswestry stop by request at the entrance to the estate about 100 yards from the cottage. A taxi to Welshpool train station is about 7 minute drive and costs about £5. There is a train service which takes you the length of the beautiful Cambrian coast or you can venture inland connecting to the Heart of Wales line.
Car not needed
How to get there
