    “The suggestions underneath look like we might not have had a good time.”

    We did. It is a lovely cottage in a secluded area. The garden is totally enclosed so very safe for the dog to run about in whilst we were in the hot tub. The beds are lovely and comfy, the place is spacious. There are loads of lovely places to visit within 30 mins drive of the cottage. We did enjoy it. ...

    We did. It is a lovely cottage in a secluded area. The garden is totally enclosed so very safe for the dog to run about in whilst we were in the hot tub. The beds are lovely and comfy, the place is spacious. There are loads of lovely places to visit within 30 mins drive of the cottage. We did enjoy it. Some suggestions we would make to the owners of Miller's Rest - we were very disappointed that the internet password was changed at 10pm on the Thursday night when we were not checking out until 10am on Friday. As it was in a poor 4G area we were without internet for the last 12 hours of our stay. Very frustrating. - would suggest a clothes airer as we had to always put towels in the tumble drier as there was no where to hang them to dry apart from outside on the line - which had only limited clothes pegs and limited drying weather :) - suggest that the washing machine and drier are repositioned as the water tank of the tumble drier is full and it cannot be emptied as the sink is in the way - more instructions. We were not sure what all the symbols on the dishwasher meant and which was the best one to put on, or the best way of using the heating - a few friendly things like hand soap in each bathroom, more than one towel per person, salt and pepper, a few more dishwasher tablets - before arriving a note for those of us who don't do hot tubs regularly that we need to bring extra towels, robes, flip flops. It had been a busy run up to the holiday and we didn't think about these things. No fault of the owners. Just us being a bit dim!

The ground floor has a useful hallway, where you can store your outdoor clothing, which leads you to the large kitchen boasting a Rangemaster cooker, slate flooring and a door out to the rear garden.

The welcoming sitting room has a window seat and sumptuous sofas around a woodburning stove, which is housed in an original inglenook fireplace.

Next door, the dining room is perfect for sitting with friends over a meal, or enjoying a family board game.

Outside, guests can enjoy the large enclosed garden, dine alfresco or sit and relax in the hot tub after a busy day out discovering the area.

The village of Churchstoke has two village pubs and an excellent local supermarket, while Montgomery has a good range of shops, restaurants and pubs just four miles away.

About the location

MONTGOMERY

Churchstoke 4.5 miles; Bishop's Castle 9.5 miles; Welshpool 7.7 miles.

The town of Montgomery sits just one mile from the border of England in Mid Wales. Popular with tourists, the town has a delightful selection of individual shops and a variety of pubs and restaurants, including the Michelin star restaurant, The Checkers, a fabulous way to make your holiday truly special. Pay a visit to the ruins of the 13th century Montgomery Castle, which enjoys beautiful views over the town’s timber-framed houses and cobbled streets, and beyond across Wales. The castle also hosts productions of touring theatre groups regularly during the summer. A few miles to the south is the historic market town of Bishop's Castle, an excellent place for a day or night out with its excellent pubs, live music and festivals throughout the year. The wider area is wonderful for walking and there are many cycle routes in the surrounding countryside with varying levels of difficulty. You can venture further into Wales with a drive up to the Snowdonia National Park, or directly west to Cardigan Bay, for the day, or hop back over the border and explore the Shropshire Hills AONB. A charming destination for a holiday.
