    “Access to the property is very difficult.”

    Regrettably we did damage a vehicle trying to access up the drive way. Also there could be another shower in the main bathroom, as the one on the top floor is only suitable for children.

The property

A beautiful detached cottage conveniently located in the centre of Kington, down a medieval alleyway just off the High Street.

Furnished to a high standard to provide spacious, contemporary accommodation ideal for a family reunion or get together with friends in a lovely part of the country on the English/Welsh border.

The cottage is set over three floors with five individually styled bedrooms located on the ground and second floors, each floor having its own bathroom, with the master bedroom on the ground floor having the added benefit of an en-suite.

The first floor open plan living area is a great space for all guests to congregate and enjoy dinner together, watch a film in front of the warming woodburning stove or maybe a game of charades!

For a little quiet time head into the sun room which is attached to the living area, perfect for relaxing in a bright and cheery environment.

Doors from the sun room lead to the fully enclosed garden where you can enjoy alfresco dining with an evening BBQ.

A short stroll takes you to Kington High Street with a range of shops, two excellent butchers, cafés and traditional pubs.

Leave your car and enjoy the many walks on offer from the doorstep of the cottage with Offa's Dyke Path passing through the town.

Beautiful thriving local villages and towns dot the countryside, such as Presteigne, Leominster and Knighton, with the National Trust's Cwmmau Farmhouse and Westonbury Mill Water Gardens both less than 15 minutes’ drive away.

The area offers numerous outdoor activities such as fishing, riding, cycling, exploring local gardens and also the local Kington Golf Course on Bradnor Hill which is proud to be highest course in England.

About the location


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.
