The property

A stunning holiday home with a feeling of grandeur, set within a wing of a former village Rectory, nestled at the base of rolling hills on the edge the pretty village of Llandyssil.

Just a short walk from the village pub and bakery, this property is the perfect base for families or friends looking to relax and enjoy the beauty and splendour of the surrounding countryside, close to many historic towns.

Set over two floors, there are two regal bedrooms and a modern bathroom, while comfortable seating in the double bedroom makes the perfect place to sit and enjoy the view with a good book.

As well as grand, high ceilings throughout, the kitchen is well equipped with a dining area leading through a stylish hall and into a capacious sitting room, with a cosy woodburning stove that you can relax by with a hot cup of coffee.

Sit outside in the intimate courtyard off the kitchen, with an early morning cup of tea, or enjoy the pretty garden with views across the valley and chat about the adventures ahead of you.

You are ideally placed to explore the stunning Shropshire Hills, a beautifully undulating area, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and peppered with quaint, pretty villages.

Offa’s Dyke is just five miles away, with fantastic walks in the border countryside of the Welsh Marches, and the majestic National Trust’s Powys Castle is just eight and a half miles away, a perfect way to spend a day exploring the medieval past.

The area offers numerous opportunities for outdoor activities; take a trip on the Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway, set out on one of five local cycle routes, explore the domineering ruins of Montgomery and Dolforwyn Castles, or simply enjoy a gentle walk along the Montgomeryshire Canal.

Lakeside Golf Course is around a five-minute drive from The Old Rectory Cottage, while a similar distance away the town of Montgomery boasts a Michelin star-awarded restaurant, The Checkers.

Why not take a trip to the local Glansevern Hall Gardens, just over three miles away?

Set within 25 acres of diverse and romantic planting, you can take a walk around the beautifully planted lake and perhaps enjoy a spot of afternoon tea.

Slightly further afield you can visit the stunning Victorian Dams of Lake Vyrnwy, rich in wildlife and fabulous for a day out, or the coast can be reached in an hour’s drive.

The cottage is also within easy reach of the Long Mynd Hills, Church Stretton, Ironbridge and Ludlow.

A perfect, regency retreat on the edge of a popular village in the border countryside of Mid Wales, ideal for families and friends looking for a little bit of luxurious serenity.
