The small town of Kington, known as the “centre for walking”, is situated near the Welsh Borders in the area known as The Marches. The area is renowned for its lovely scenery and for its excellent walking in the surrounding rolling hills. This quiet, pleasant town has a number of excellent shops, pubs, restaurants and a variety of tourist attractions close by including Eastnor Castle, Kingswood Small Breed Farm Park and Owl Centre, Hergest Croft Gardens, the Mortimer Trail and the Offa's Dyke Path, over Bradnor Hill which boasts England’s highest golf course, and Hergest Ridge, the inspiration for the beautiful music of both Elgar and Mike Oldfield! Also within easy reach and well worth a visit is the delightful town of Hay-on-Wye with its numerous book shops, craft and antique shops, while the ancient city of Hereford with its impressive Norman cathedral and famous Mappa Mundi, a 13th Century cartographer's interpretation of the world is a great day out. A delightful holiday location to suit all tastes!

Previous visitors' comments about The School Room:
The studio apartment was the perfect holiday accomodation for both of us. All utensils supplied for kitchen which was great. A very friendly, courteous and helpful landlady!

The School Room was perfect for us as a couple. It was a great base for walking and exploring; the owners provided a vast wealth of information on the surrounding area, which was greatly appreciated.
Mr Moore, Hull, August 2012
Property is well situated in Kington - quiet and peaceful. Lots of useful information provided about the area and walking leaflets. Range of TV channels if wanting to stay in and very comfortable sitting area. Plenty of opportunities to eat out but kitchen area well-stocked with utensils etc if eating in.
Mr Heaton, Wigan, July 2012
The School Room is ideally placed for the Hay Festival and Brecon. Very comfortable and parking close by.
