  • "Well fitted out with plenty of information and maps of the area."

    The stairs are rather steep for old knees!

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad the cottage had everything you needed for your stay. Property Owner

  • "We had a comfortable stay but there were a few little niggles."

    If you have any mobility issues, the stairs are narrow and quite steep with a turn at the top so care needs to be taken. Also the paths in the terraced garden were overgrown with vegetation but the patio was a lovely place to sit. The road outside is very narrow and the parking space is tight. There were no tea towels or hand towel in the kitchen and no hair dryer. It was a peaceful place to stay and the railway line was not a problem. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and thank you to the owners for the welcome gift of wine and chocolates and bread.

    As our first guests, we are grateful for your very helpful feedback and glad that you had a comfortable stay and enjoyed the welcome pack. We are sorry there were no tea towels or towel in the kitchen. These should have been put out for you and we'll ensure that this happens in future. We are also in the process of arranging a regular gardener for the property. Property Owner

The property

This characterful, former engine driver’s cottage, is set on the fringes of the market town of Knighton, close to the English/Welsh border.

Presented to a delightful standard with a south-facing, enclosed garden, Myrtle Villa welcomes four guests looking to escape to this delightful part of Shropshire.

The front door opens into an enclosed porch where you can leave your boots behind after a day of walking.

Relax in the welcoming lounge, with a TV, DVD player and crackling woodburning stove.

Across the hall is the dining room, with a window overlooking the garden, oak flooring and exposed stone walls, where you can enjoy hearty meals prepared in the amply equipped kitchen.

Whisk away upstairs and find the bedrooms; a double and a twin, with wooden floors and exposed stone work.

Completing the interior is the spacious bathroom with bath and separate walk-in shower, so you can decide how best to prepare for your day.

At the rear of the house is a decked area that overlooks the garden sloping gently towards the railway running beside the River Teme; perfect for an evening tipple or a morning coffee.

The market town of Knighton provides a great holiday base, offering a diverse range of shops including a supermarket, a butcher and a farm shop, offering seasonal produce and a range of homemade goods.

Those looking to get their steps in will have no trouble exploring the various walking paths in the area, including the Offa’s Dyke path and Owain Glyndwr's Way, or head across the road to explore Kinsley Wood.

Cyclists can join the 84-mile-long Radnor Ring Cycling Route which passes Myrtle Villa.

Knighton station on the Heart of Wales is a short walk away with a regular train service heading towards the historic Shrewsbury or through Llandrindod Wells.

Elsewhere in the region, the National Trust property of Powis Castle with its celebrated gardens and the medieval town of Ludlow, with its 13th century castle, are well worth a visit.

Head to Myrtle Villa and experience the beauty of Shropshire and the Welsh border.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
