  • “Accurate description on Sykes ...”
    Accurate description on Sykes website Great house for our group of 6 adults and 4 pre-teenage children. Very interesting/unusual ground floor layout as it had been a pub/restaurant (old website is still on the internet). No major alterations except for removal of beer pumps (pump with no beer!). Even retained the Gents and Ladies toilets. House directly borders the road (no front garden) but we were not disturbed by traffic at any time during our stay.

    Accurate description on Sykes website Great house for our group of 6 adults and 4 pre-teenage children. Very interesting/unusual ground floor layout as it had been a pub/restaurant (old website is still on the internet). No major alterations except for removal of beer pumps (pump with no beer!). Even retained the Gents and Ladies toilets. House directly borders the road (no front garden) but we were not disturbed by traffic at any time during our stay. Plenty of space for the whole family to sleep, eat and socialise with a quiet snug much appreciated by grandparents. Good garden for the children to play and for eating out. Plenty of parking and a good location for visiting reservoirs and seaside towns. Tesco did an excellent home delivery and shops/supermarkets (and McDonald's!) in nearby Newtown. Apart from Newtown and a very interesting Sculpture Park (free entry) not a lot to see in the very immediate vicinity but a lot to see/do by car. Will be very difficult to find somewhere as good for our next family holiday.. Only a couple of minor problems - no notice not to use urinals in Gents (water turned off), bit short on mugs and toilet paper. Highly recommended.

The property

Caersws 1.3 miles.

A beautifully presented, 17th century detached former roadside coaching inn, located in the small hamlet of Pontdolgoch, a short distance from Caersws in Mid Wales.

Conveniently located near a number of attractions that will suit all tastes, this superb house has been stylishly furnished throughout, retaining its charming and welcoming ambience, to provide the perfect base for families and friends looking to spend time together.

Park the car in the large private car park and take in the fresh air before stepping inside this delightful house.

Set over two floors, this superb holiday home has six comfortable bedrooms made up of four individual rooms with en-suite facilities, and one family suite which has two bedroom areas and an en-suite bathroom.

Each of the bedrooms has been individually designed with original pieces and distinctive character and names.

On the ground floor is a well-equipped kitchen that looks out onto the spacious landscaped garden, and leading from the kitchen is a welcoming sitting room with French windows leading to the garden.

From this sitting room is a large dining room, with the bonus of a bar, complete with open fire and comfy seating, the perfect place to relax after a meal, especially on winter evenings.

This leads through to a further sitting room, a peaceful place to sit with a good book or magazine, and completing the accommodation is the convenience of ladies and gents cloakrooms.

Outside you can enjoy sitting in the lovely landscaped garden, with alfresco dining in the raised gazebo, or sit on the patio under the hanging wisteria, just the place to unwind dreaming of fun times ahead whilst on holiday.

The popular village of Caersws is close by and offers three pubs, a village club along with a local butcher and a delicatessen which specialises in quality Welsh produce, and who also serves light refreshments along with homemade cakes.

Newtown, the largest town in Powys is just a short drive away and has a wide range of shops, pubs and eating places.

From this wonderful house, you will find that the whole area is criss-crossed with footpaths, and there are a variety of places to visit such as nature reserves, the Snowdonia National Park and the stunning Lake Vyrnwy.

After a busy day, venture back to this excellent holiday home for a relaxing evening in the pretty garden or unwind in front of the open fire, surrounded by your nearest and dearest.

About the location

CAERSWS

Newtown 6 miles.

The village of Caersws is a convenient base for exploring Mid Wales. Situated on the River Severn, the village offers a railway station, church and shop, pubs, butchers and a Post Office. Just six miles away is the market town of Newtown, where you will find a number of shops, pubs, museums and an art gallery. This scenic part of Mid Wales boasts many outdoor activities too, including walking, cycling and fishing along with a nearby clay pigeon shooting centre (of international repute) and a rally centre run by championship rally drivers. If you prefer a spot of history whilst staying in the area, the ruins of the ancient Motte and Bailey castles situated close by in the beautiful old county town of Montgomery, or the ruins of Dolforwyn castle in the hills above the village of Abermule are well worth visiting. Visit the world-famous Powis Castle and Garden, often frequented by Prince Charles, or Aberdovey on the stunning Cardigan Bay coastline, a paradise for watersport enthusiasts, is within an hour’s drive. An excellent place to stay, whatever your interests.
