The property

A light and airy annexe to the owners’ property, on the edge of the small village of Sarn, close to the stunning Welsh Marches, the Kerry Ridgeway and Shropshire Hills AONB.

A perfect base, with a pub within walking distance, providing deceptively spacious accommodation for couples looking to explore the fantastic area.

The property offers ground floor accommodation with one large bedroom and a modern shower room.

There is a well-equipped kitchen with dining area.

The sitting room is spacious, with picture windows making the most of the views up to the hills in the distance, and plenty of space to relax in front of the cosy electric fire.

Outside, you can sit in the small walled garden with views across the fields to wooded hillocks beyond, or relax on the patio and enjoy a glass of something cool.

The Kerry Ridgeway sits up on the hills, visible from the property, and runs along the natural border of Wales with England, providing fantastic walking and cycle trails.

You are ideally placed to explore the fabulous countryside which is peppered with little towns such as Montgomery and picturesque villages such as Berriew or Bettws Cedewain, many with welcoming country inns.

Why not explore the banks of the River Severn, running through the valley in its infancy, or perhaps enjoy a peaceful amble or bike ride along the Montgomery Canal?

Surrounding Newtown, 7 miles away, are various nature reserves, with the chance to glimpse some fabulous wildlife, from resident red kites to aerobatic sand martins in nearby Pwll Penarth Nature Reserve.

Just a 12 mile drive takes you to the National Trust’s Powis Castle, with Italianate terraces and impressive interiors.

Or maybe take a trip to the Glansevern Hall Gardens, perhaps in time for an afternoon tea.

Slightly further afield, take a trip to Lake Vyrnwy, around an hours’ drive, on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park; a fantastic 24,000 acre RSPB reserve of beautiful scenery mixed with the impressive architecture of the dam and fairy-tale style turrets of the tower.

A perfect base.

About the location


Kerry 4 miles; Montgomery 4 miles; Bishops Castle 5 miles.

Sarn is a small village, which nestles in the lovely Vale of Kerry, centrally located in Mid Wales and close to the borders with Shropshire. This wonderfully scenic region is known as The Marches and is steeped in history. Nearby is Kerry, which has a village shop and two pubs, one with a restaurant. The area is known as a popular destination for walkers and mountain bikers because of the Kerry Ridgeway; a gentle 15 mile route through the hills providing remarkable views in all directions (up to 70 miles on clear days). Discover Montgomery and Powis Castles, the medieval towns of Bishops Castle, Ludlow, Shrewsbury and Machynlleth, or the Snowdonia and Brecon Beacons National Parks. With easy access to Offa's Dyke, beautiful gardens, steam railways and the stunning Cardigan Bay coastline about an hour's drive away, this location is a real gem!
