Montpelier Cottage is the home of Jo Eliot and Noel Kingsbury, a peaceful rural retreat on the Welsh borders 5 miles from the 'book town Hay-on-Wye.
A special feature here is the garden. Noel is a well-known writer and researcher, and the 4 acre garden functions as test plot, full of flowers and buzzing with insect life and birds.
Well behaved dogs welcome though we do have 2 cats.
