    Location was perfect, very tranquil surrounded by fields and wonderful views. Plenty of parking for our family group right outside the door and the directions made it very easy to find. Fresh cut flowers, a delicious home baked Victoria sponge and a generous supply of tea, coffee and milk were awaiting us on arrival. The furnishings are all high quality and very comfortable. The layout of the cottage make it a great space for family get togethers. Richard and Annabel were lovely hosts, always acknowledging us on passing but not intruding. Overall a great place to stay.

The property

Walton 1 mile.

A fabulous, traditionally-styled detached house situated on the owner’s working livestock farm, surrounded by stunning countryside, one mile from the hamlet of Walton and five miles from the market town of Kington.

This spacious property is ideal for families or friends to relax and enjoy each others company.

Set over two floors with countryside views from every room, there are four comfortable bedrooms, with a bathroom upstairs and an additional shower room on the ground floor.

There’s also a well-equipped kitchen with dining area and a light and airy sitting room with woodburning stove that leads into a conservatory with comfy seating, a perfect spot to enjoy the views with your loved ones and a refreshing drink.

Outside, you can sit in the garden with ever changing views across the valley, maybe whilst enjoying a morning cup of tea and deciding what to see and do in the area.

This superb holiday home is set in the Radnor Valley, a beautiful sweeping basin with beautiful hills and quaint little villages, many with popular pubs and restaurants.

You’re also ideally placed to walk the popular Offa’s Dyke that stretches in both directions, taking you through beautiful and diverse countryside.

Close by are the towns of Kington and Knighton, with the former boasting the highest golf course in England, and the latter being the gateway to the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Further afield are the pretty market town of Ludlow, Builth Wells, which is home to the Royal Welsh Showground, and Hay on Wye, known as ‘the town of books’.

A lovely countryside property with superb walking and fabulous days out in abundance.

About the location

WALTON

Kington 3 miles; Presteigne 5 miles.

The small hamlet of Walton is situated just one mile from the famous Offa's Dyke Pathway. The neighbouring village of Old Radnor offers The Harp Inn, a 15th century Welsh longhouse pub. The beautiful Radnor Forest is also within one mile, providing superb cycling and rambling opportunities, whilst just 3 miles away, the pleasant town of Kington, renowned as a centre for walking, is surrounded by the pretty rolling hills of The Marches and offers a choice of good shops, pubs and restaurants. Explore the Mortimer Trail and the lovely walks to Hergest Ridge, the inspiration for the beautiful music of both Elgar and Mike Oldfield. Discover Presteigne, which nestles at the heart of The Marches and has the award-winning Judges Lodgings. The countryside here is truly breathtaking, and when you're ready to head out of the country, why not visit the market town of Hay-on-Wye, often described as The Town of Books, or the ancient city of Hereford, with its impressive Norman cathedral and famous Mappa Mundi, both within easy reach? A wonderful, year round holiday location.
