    “This was a well kept cottage in a good spot for walking or cycling.”

    The shower was good and the heating easy to control. There was plenty of storage space. Our only complaint is that the cottage was advertised as having wi-fi, when the wifi signal could only be picked up sitting on the bench outside or standing at a window. We do not expect cottages advertising wi-fi to have fast speeds of to be able to stream video. We do expect to be able to check emails and information web-sites on a lap-top, sitting down somewhere in the cottage. The entry for this ...

The entry for this cottage needs to be qualified to explain how limited the wi-fi is. The lack of inside wi-fi explains the lower rating for facilities and accuracy of description.

About the location

KINGTON

Presteigne 6 miles; Hay-on-Wye 12 miles.

The small town of Kington, well regarded as a centre for walking, is situated near the England/Wales border in a beautiful area known as the Welsh Marches. It is a wonderful area of wooded hills, tranquil valleys and unspoilt Black and White villages on the English side and the more rugged Cambrian Mountains on the Welsh side. Celebrated by visitors for its lovely scenery and excellent walking and cycling in the surrounding rolling hills, this quiet, pleasant town offers a number of excellent shops, pubs and restaurants. Further afield there is plenty to do, pony treking is available at the Black Mountains and why not try Canoeing on the river Wye. There are a variety of tourist attractions close by including the Small Breeds Farm and Owl Centre, the nationally important Hergest Croft Gardens, Offa’s Dyke Path and Mortimer Trail long distance footpaths, and slightly further afield the National Trust properties of Croft Castle and Berrington Hall. Bradnor Hill, with England’s highest golf course, lies just outside the town. 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, along with hosting the famous Hay Festival during the Spring Bank Holiday. Nearby is Ludlow, famous for its gourmet food shops and fine restaurants. The ancient city of Hereford, with its impressive Norman cathedral and famous Mappa Mundi, a 13th century cartographer's interpretation of the world, offers a great day out. A delightful holiday location to suit all ages and tastes.
