    “The School Room is at a great ...”

    The School Room is at a great location - just a short walk from downtown Kington and local walking paths. The room is spacious, but feels cosy. I have plenty of space to open my suitcase and spread out I very much appreciate the comfortable bed, and the extra blankets available. I am also able to turn the heat on as needed, and the shower has plenty of hot water. (Uncomfortable beds, and lack of heat and hot water have been issues at other places I have stayed).

    The School Room is at a great location - just a short walk from downtown Kington and local walking paths. The room is spacious, but feels cosy. I have plenty of space to open my suitcase and spread out I very much appreciate the comfortable bed, and the extra blankets available. I am also able to turn the heat on as needed, and the shower has plenty of hot water. (Uncomfortable beds, and lack of heat and hot water have been issues at other places I have stayed). The beautiful house is stone, so it stays cool in the summer heat. The room is also very quiet, so no worries about being woken up in the middle of the night by loud neighbors. Sarah and Roger are lovely people; they are very friendly and make sure you're comfortable. Parking spaces are available just seconds away by foot in The Square. The kitchen includes a stove, oven, microwave, and refrigerator, plenty of supplies to cook if you want to. I'm lazy and don't cook when I visit, and there's plenty of local options for meals, including yummy take-out fish and chips, or chinese food to eat in the flat. Kington itself is lovely, with two butchers shops, several local restaurants and pubs, and The Border Bean coffee shop which has excellent sandwhiches and soups, and delicious homemade deserts. My visits to Kington are to take care of my Mum, who is in a wheelchair. The Kington community is always kind and helpful as I wheel her around the shops. I recommend the School Room to anyone staying in Kington, and recommend Kington to anyone interested in staying in the area.

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. 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.
