Draenllwynellen is a beautifully refurbished detached farmhouse in an elevated position enjoying breath-taking unspoilt views across the valley towards the Kerry Ridgeway and Shropshire Hills but within 2 miles of the ancient Welsh border town of Montgomery, with its twice weekly market. This traditional property dates back in parts to the early 1800’s and boasts original beams and an oak staircase, a bespoke kitchen with range cooker and large family sitting room with wood burning stove. Completely private, set in its own acre of land with orchard and ornamental garden and rustic outbuildings, guests will enjoy the spectacular scenery and peace and quiet of this beautiful rural hideaway. Simply stunning!

There are footpaths and byways directly from the house and quiet country lanes for walking or cycling as well as Offa’s Dyke path (3 miles) and hill walking and nature reserves at Roundton and Corndon Hills near Church Stoke, some 4 miles distant as well as the Long Mynd, a scenic 40 minute drive away.

Although a little off the beaten track, this property is beautiful, homely and with a gorgeous view. The nice touch of the welcome basket and lovely toiletries were wonderful touches. Beds very comfy and plenty of towels. Rooms nice and spacious and everything easy to find and use. Had a wonderful time

What a fantastic cottage to stay in. It is beautifully decorated, well equipped and probably one of the nicest cottages we've stayed in, in the area. We hope to come back with our family again soon!

Thank you so much for your review Natalie. Draenllwynellen is a lovely property. The owners have restored it beautifully, with a great deal of love, care and thought. Working with local people and materials. The housekeeper also has a wonderful attention to detail. Thank you once again.
