  • "Just WOW. I'd discovered Plas Robin many months ago and stored it in my mind for a special occasion."

    When my other half suggested going away for our boys birthday, I knew Plas Robin would be the perfect place. Our boy is our Shih Tzu Bailey, who turned 16 on the day we checked in. He's a very special boy, who recovered from doggy paralysis during the first lock down. We had really high expectations for this trip after looking at reviews and photos but I can honestly say it’s even more amazing in person than you could possibly imagine. The lodge is decorated to such a high standard and is so well equipped, we managed to cook full meals ever day and even bake at the weekend. Bailey spent most of the week sat by the bedroom patio door, looking out into the garden. Us humans switched from watching Netflix, to taking in the beautiful views from the hot tub. Just when I thought our staycation couldn't get anymore perfect, my other half asked me to marry him in front of the fire! Not only did Carol bring a card and a lovely gift to say congratulations to us both, I’ve since found out she also helped arrange for a family member to send us a bouquet of flowers! Plas Robin really has been the most magical break ever and will always hold a special place in our hearts. Thank you Carol & Dave for creating something so perfect, we can’t wait to return. xxxx

    We loved being a small part of your very special break Kairon!❤ Congratulations! Thank you so much for your very kind comments which mean so much to us both. Best wishes with all the wedding planning - enjoy Property Owner

  • "We stayed in Shepard’s rest over my birthday in January with our dog Luna and we absolutely loved it."

    The property is in a great location with stunning views and an incredible view of the night sky from the hot tub. Carol and David were great hosts and popped up to visit after our arrival to check we had everything we needed and show us how to turn in the hot tub. We also had a lovely welcome hamper waiting for us when we arrived with fresh bread from a local bakery and eggs from their own chickens. The cabin itself is beautiful and quite spacious, with a lovely shower and bath and a really great kitchen. The fridge and freezer are of a good size (we were a bit worried as we brought our dogs food that needs to remain frozen) but it more than accommodated our needs and we were pleased to find out tesco would deliver (the tesco in Newtown is only a short drive anyway). The area was fenced off and what’s a gate that can be shut to contain any doggys and Luna had a great time running around and exploring as well as playing with lovely Meg the collie! The log fire was a great edition too! Would highly recommend to all!!

    Dear Tim, thank you so much for your lovely feedback and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay! Meg thoroughly enjoyed her holiday too! We do hope that we can welcome you back in the future. Kindest regards, Carol & David xx Property Owner

  • "WOW WOW WOW The Shepherd's Rest was above and beyond our expectations."

    You could not wish to stay at a more amazing place. Firstly the hosts Carol and David were so welcoming and the property was amazing everything absolutely perfect would not hesitate to reccomend this place. A special mention to Meg the Collie Dog who we adopted for the duration of our stay. Will most certainly return. Didn't want to leave.

    Hi Andrew and Mary Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a glowing review - we are so delighted that you enjoyed your stay and hope that we might see you again in the future. Best wishes, Carol and David xx Property Owner

  • "The lodge was perfection, built to such a high standard."

    The attention to detail was very high and the owners were so friendly and welcoming and always happy to help. We received a hamper on arrival which made the experience even more remarkable. We were also provided with an information folder of the area and recommendations which were really useful. The views of the lodge were stunning, you could waste hours just sitting there watching and relaxing. This Lodge really does feel like a proper holiday and not just a stay in the UK. Would highly recommend.

  • "Carol and Dave were such welcoming and friendly hosts, I’m sure that if we had needed anything it wouldn’t have been too much trouble."

    What an absolutely fantastic location, we were completely blown away with the view, you could sit in the living area, patio or hot tub and just admire what a beautiful area it’s situated in. The welcome hamper was another great touch, full of lot’s of lovely goodies, with even some treats left for our dog. Everything inside the house has been done to a very high standard. We had a really great week away, which had been much anticipated, we can’t recommend it highly enough. Keep up the good work Dave and Carol, looking forward to coming back to stay with you again

  • "Shepherd's Rest was just perfect."

    Comfortable, warm, beautiful decor. Beautiful views. Everything to accommodate an excellent experience. Definitely would love to go back. We were greeted with such friendliness by the owners. It was lovely to do a circular walk in the morning through the village via the bakery.

  • "This is a luxuriously well furnished property, with lovely attention to detail."

    Fluffy white towelling gowns, bath soak, seperate hot tub towels and a lovely welcome basket of goodies was all very much appreciated. The views from the panoramic window are never boring, and the layout of the property ensures privacy and a very peaceful break. The owners are literally at the end of the driveway, and are on hand to answer any queries. You can also receive deliveries from the local Tesco so you don't need to leave for supplies unless you want too!

  • "What a fantastic place!"

    The lodge is superb and the views simply amazing! It is furnished to a very high standard, very new and so comfortable we didn’t want to leave! The log burning fire was such a nice feature and so cosy and warm. The added bonus outside was the lovely warm hot tub that we used every day and why not with those stunning views! Carol and David the owners made sure we had everything we needed and were the perfect hosts! Their lovely Dog Meg was a regular visitor and you can collect eggs from the chicken hut just down the bottom of the field! Another bonus is the lovely little bakery in the village where you can order the day before and go and collect it, it’s like going back in time where you leave your money in an envelope and post it in a tin! Such a trusting and refreshing thing! I would definitely recommend this lodge so much so we are thinking of going back next year as we had such an amazing holiday!

  • "We had an incredible break at Shepherds Rest."

    The whole experience was relaxing and fun. We have already recommended Plas Robin Rural Retreats to others and will definitely be looking to stay again. Our 5 year old son had an amazing time in a safe and friendly environment and enjoyed exploring the fields, watching the animals, playing with Meg the dog, and collecting the eggs from the chickens. We could not recommend this property highly enough. Thank you for an incredible stay!

  • "This place is a picture-perfect location."

    The lodges are VERY well equipped with lots of thought out detail. They are very well designed with no expense spared. Carol, David and their family were fantastic hosts, friendly and only too happy to accommodate you. The setting is a perfect getaway, peaceful and picture perfect. This was one of the best holidays we have ever experienced. The village bakery was excellent and like stepping back in time. The ability to collect your own fresh eggs every morning from the hens on site was a delight. The surrounding village of Montgomery was beautiful and a short walk away. If you are seeking a luxury, relaxing, well equipped, peaceful getaway then I think this place is hard to beat. We will absolutely be returning and can not wait for the next time. A positive memory that will stay with us forever!

About the location


Churchstoke 4.5 miles; Bishop's Castle 9.5 miles; Welshpool 5.8 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.
