Also good bus travel from the Newtown Bus Station just five minutes walk from the house. National cycle/walking route, The Severn Way is right in front of the house and other routes close by: Glyndwr's Way, Kerry Ridgeway and Offa's Dyke.

Other things to note

During the installation of our new gas heating system, the old pipe work to the wood burning stove was disconnected. This means that the back boiler in the stove is empty of water. If the fire is lit it will destroy the boiler. For the time being the stove is not to be lit and out of use. Thank you.
There is free unlimited Internet and wireless wifi. Please note we do not have a TV license at the property, therefore to remain within the law, please do not stream live TV programs.
We have a travel cot and highchair available at the house.
The two glass shower doors on the top floor close smoothly to the centre point, so please close gently thank you.

The Roundhouse is a great relaxing and quirky place to stay. We were really happy with the cleanliness and facilities. The hosts have been excellent, keeping in touch and responding to any of our queries quickly. I would definitely recommend the Roundhouse as a base if you fancy exploring the beautiful countryside and coast around mid Wales.

My husband and I and our two year old daughter had a wonderful stay. I really can't fault it. I was worried about parking but there was always a space, even at the weekend. The kitchen was well equipped although we didn't have any need to cook much. The town centre is literally just over the river so easy to pop and get anything you might need. We were visiting family close by so we just wanted somewhere convenient but the house exceeded our expectations. Our daughter didn't want to come home! Overall a lovely, sympathetically restored and immaculately presented property.

John User ProfileJohn is a superhost.

Almost bald late middle aged guy who still thinks he is 30 who is loved, calmed, and gently led by a wonderful and beautiful wife called Sue.
We lived in Dornoch Highlands for almost 20 years, where we raised our two sons and one daughter and ran a small picture framing business and art gallery. Sue is an accomplished artist who works with water colours and produces fine art limited edition prints from Lino cuts, wood engravings and copper plate etchings.
Our artistic nature moves us to restore beautiful things including furniture and more recently The Round House, which was a labour of love.
Sue and I love walking and walk almost every day in the countryside around our home in England and in Wales we walk the hills and spectacular coast. In the summer months we enjoy kayaking and I sail a vintage MiniSprint sailing dinghy at Middle Nene Sailing Clubs lake at Thrapston.
As RAF Bird Controller, I enjoy an ornithologist dream observing birds of prey and rare seasonal birds that frequent the airfield. Sue works as a Librarian and Learning Resource Facilitator at Stamford College. She enjoys the varied nature of the work and interaction with the students.
