  • "A spacious, comfortable, clean and tidy bungalow with an attractive garden and wonderful view in quiet surroundings, plus a welcome pack of a delicious cake, a bottle of wine, chocolates and milk."

    We really enjoyed our stay there. Our only suggestion would be instructions on how to use the microwave and the oven timer and perhaps the provision of a smallish microwaveable bowl with a lid.

    I love how Mrs Williams has decorated her property, she really has thought of everything. Mrs Williams was so kind and left us some lovely treats, I will definitely be returning and miss the Marches already- I could sit in the conservatory all day and watch the cows whilst listening to the birds, pure bliss. Thank you once again Mrs W :)

    We had the most wonderful stay at "The Marshes", the cottage is absolutely stunning and is finished to a very high standard but the icing on the cake is a stunning view and beautiful garden - we spent a lot of our indoor time sat in the conservatory soaking it all up

  • "The Marshes is a beautiful, welcoming and well appointed property, with a perfectly landscaped garden to sit in while taking in the magnificent uninterrupted views."

    The owner has given the utmost care and thought to giving her guests a comfortable and relaxed time - not least by adding some generous and thoughtful treats to welcome people and make them feel at home! We had a lovely and relaxed week's holiday break - just what we needed (it was perfection and we didn't want to leave). Thank you, we hope to return soon!

    The level of comfort and especially cleanliness is exemplary. Can not fault it, it is absolutely Five Star. We have stayed in many self catering lets for over 20yrs this one is way up there, Mrs Williams very kindly provided a hairdryer as requested last time, and is spoiling us with treats! Diet starts tomorrow!

    Peaceful, amazing views, high standard of decor and comfort, proper mattresses not memory foam! Thanks to Mrs Williams for treats. We love it so much we will be back in 3 weeks. Just suggest a hairdryer would be good, and a washing machine in utility, otherwise perfect! Will highly recommend!

  • "The hot and cold taps in the kitchen are labelled wrong, a note would be good to warn."

    Also no hand soap in either bathroom. Really minor but someone might mark you down for it. We had a lovely staycation and the kids loved it too.

The property

Guilsfield 3 miles.

Positioned in the quaint village of Pentrebeirdd near Guilsfield in Powys is The Marshes, a stone-fronted, single-storey cottage.

Enjoying far-reaching, countryside views towards Welshpool, and an enclosed rear garden with a sweeping lawn, The Marshes offers six guests the ideal base for a rural escape, also featuring flexible sleeping arrangements and a homely interior.

Travel down the gated driveway, arriving to ample private parking, before entering the property, firstly reaching the sitting room, adorning plush seating, a Smart TV, and a gas fire, where you can kick back and relax after a day of adventure.

Venture through to the kitchen/diner, also complete with a well-equipped utility, where you can fulfil your self-catering needs; if you'd prefer to enjoy breat-taking vistas whilst dining and socialising, head outdoors to the enclosed rear garden.

Catch some rest in one of three well-appointed bedrooms, including a double with en-suite shower room, a further double, and a twin (zip/link), all serviced by a bathroom.

Awaken to a coffee upon the patio before grabbing your walking boots for a day of exploration, starting off at the Meifod Valley Alpacas, a favourite for families, before travelling into Welshpool, home to a local golf club, the Welshpool & Llanfair Railway Preservation, offering immersive tours of the town, the magnificent grounds of Powis Castle and Garden, and Llyn Coed y Dinas Nature Reserve, ideal for birdwatching and hiking.

Within proximity to The Marshes, discover The Naissance Experience at Glansevern Hall Gardens, tour the Llanymynech Rocks Nature Reserve (Montgomeryshire), offering nature-filled vistas all-year around, or embark on a trip towards Pistyll Rhaeadr, recognised as Britain's tallest single-drop waterfall.

Complete your getaway with a visit to Shrewsbury, brimming with pubs, eateries, and shops, along with the chance to explore Shrewsbury Prison, Shrewsbury Cathedral, and the ruins of Shrewsbury Abbey, or head west and opt for a day at Snowdonia National Park, dotted with beauty spots.

Experience all of this at The Marshes.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
