A lovely place to relax and spend time as a family.
The children loved the cows and all the fantastic board games. We enjoyed Powis Castle, local ruined castles, Ironbridge, Hay-on-Wye, Ffestiniog railway and exploring walks on Offa’s Dyke.
Also went on daily walks from the farmhouse – lots of fun!
We found the house very clean and well equipped.
Thank you.

Rural Retreat indeed!
Weather: very British!
Beautiful landscape, very nice cottage. The only human being around the house was the neighbouring farmer looking after his cows.

Our second visit to this lovely house, and so different from last time when it was 30ºC.
However, we have loved it just as much.
This time the wood burner was lovely and cosy.
Thank you, Debbie, for all the lovely goodies.

The W Family - Enfield

We have had a fantastic few days here in splendid isolation!
This old house is so comfortable and friendly, and the gardens and views are simply lovely!
We age from 15 to 78 years old and all generations have enjoyed the peace and relaxation here.
A beautiful area too with so much to see.
And even the weather was good!
A beautiful house – could stay here forever!

We had a great week in shine and rain.
We enjoyed the house hugely and got enormous pleasure from the lambs and calves in the surrounding fields. The buzzard whose patch is halfway done the lane is a great sight.
Powis Castle is one of the best of all NT properties in our opinion, and we loved the proximity to Snowdonia.
Thank you very much Debbie.

Having spent a lifetime in self-catering cottages, this is by far the best.
Everything you could possibly want is catered for. Fixtures and fitting top quality and soft towels – bliss!!
What a wonderful way to spend our 25th wedding anniversary.
Thank you, Debbie, for the flowers and a really yummy hamper.
Can’t wait to come back.

Our stay here has been wonderful.
The view is amazing, and we spent most of our evenings star gazing because the sky is so clear.
My Mum saw the most incredible sunrise of her life from the front bedroom.
The house was very clean on arrival, fully equipped kitchen and we did not for anything whilst we were here.
We can recommend the Castle Kitchen, Montgomery for coffee and Stokesay Castle, a fascinating medieval manor house
We have enjoyed every moment of our stay, thank you
The N Family - London

The W Family - Cornwall

What a wonderful stay!
The house is comfortable & welcoming, with all creature comforts thought of – thank you.
We recommend the Castle Kitchen, Montgomery for lunches & take away deli food, Montgomery Castle for views & a picnic; Powis Castle for beautiful gardens & in Montgomery for a local fish & chips shop.
We didn’t venture far with our young children but we didn’t need to because exploring the garden, watching the cows & sheep & playing at home was great entertainment for them!
We hope to be back again soon.

Second time to this wonderful house.
Stunning views; this is such a magnificent spot.
So much to see & do in the area. We walked from Knighton, did the Long Myndd & a lovely walk around Clun up to Bury Ditches.
What a place to spend a wedding anniversary, the joys of Montgomery are still magnetic – Bunners, the Castle, the Museum etc. Delicious food at the Naggs Head.
Thank you for the welcome hamper & flowers, much appreciated.
Such a welcoming, well equipped house.
This place truly is balm for the soul.
Thank you.

The B Family - Ipswich
17 April 2018
Interesting property in a lovely, peaceful location - everything a Rural Retreat should be.
We came to do some walking and were not disappointed doing good walks from Montgomery, & Bishops Castle amongst other places we visited Dolforwyn and Montgomery castle, the atmospheric Mitchell Folds stone circle and the Aberdyfi (Aberdovey) on the coast, all very worthwhile.
Enjoyable meals at both the Dragon Inn (Montgomery) and the Railway Inn (Forden) – thank you for a lovely stay.

P & J, East Sussex

Wonderful cottage and countryside!
Best Rural Retreats property we have stayed in so far. All three of the children very much enjoyed the garden and the fields.

We have had a wonderful time in this beautifully appointed, tasteful farmhouse and we have really appreciated all the very generous extra touches e.g. the fresh flowers, plentiful apples and a lovely supply of logs etc. We were snowed in for 3 days by the ‘Beast from the East’ but the locals where wonderful and we were dug out by a nice man with a digger.
The Ivy Café and Bunners in Montgomery are a must see as well as the monument on the top of the hill.
Thank you for everything.

R & H, London
9 January 2018
We have had a wonderful few days in this beautiful farmhouse, what a pity there wasn’t enough snow to use sledges! The children have loved the responsibility of playing gate keeper. We enjoyed the challenge of walking in to Montgomery and back. We ate at the Dragon a couple of times and enjoyed the food immensely. It was wonderful having no light pollution so we were able to view the wonderful night sky.
Thank you to Debbie for the spotless cleaning. (Note from the children – ‘thank you for letting us stay in this lovely holiday house, we loved playing hide and seek and throwing snow balls’)

We have had a wonderful family New Years.
It is a beautiful farm house and we have loved it!
The drive up wasn’t what we were expecting but added to the fun, making grandad be ‘gate man’.
It has been fabulous and we will hopefully come again.
Food hamper and fridge food lovely as the house is so remote.

Our third visit.
Thank you for making it so Christmassy – the tree, the lights, decorations and even the TV guide. We managed to bring my parents here for Christmas day and have had a memorable and happy time. A perfect home and so well equipped for cooking.
Congratulations as well to the house- keeper, so clean and welcoming as a home. As for the views…..
Thank you

A great house (quality) and stupendous views, sunsets, sunrise across the South Shropshire hills.
We had such a great reunion – working together for more 30 years, and friendship even stronger.
We have ensured the profits of shops in delightful Montgomery for at least another year (we hope).
Great garden here and well done to your gardener. We have loved the resident Tawney owl too.

A beautifully appointed house with a real homely feel. Fabulous views and an abundance of peace, quiet and tranquillity- relax!! We had a fantastic stay with quite a mix of weather – sun, sleet, snow, wind and ice but it made the stay even better- the snowy view was breath taking.
We spent our time walking around the local area and Kerry ridge. A few hours were spent in Bunners Hardware store in Montgomery – a must (especially for men).
The caste in Montgomery is also worth a visit for the spectacular views.
Thank for you a fabulous stay and some quality relaxation.

Bunners hardware store in Montgomery – man crèche – at least two hours of mindless browsing! Kingfisher Kayak (Abermule)for a fabulous and safe kayak trip – loved it all! Tuffins in Churchstoke (despite industrial nature of surroundings) is excellent and has a good range of foods. Stiperstones was a great walk.

Title of review says it all - what a stunning venue.
Stayed in this property over the New Year period with my friends. Arrived on New Year’s Eve to a lovely warm house, little explore around the property quickly established that this property had everything we needed and more. The kitchen was amazing.
The log burning fire was great and the living room is so cosy and perfect for the amount of guests.
Comfy bedrooms and a toilet upstairs and downstairs - really couldn't have asked for more.
New Year’s Day I made a full roast dinner and was amazed at all the amenities available in the kitchen. What I loved so much in this property was how perfect it was decorated, I felt like I was staying in the cottage from the 'Holiday'.
Off the beaten track but perfect all the same, would most definitely stay here again.
Thank you for a perfect stay
