Self Catering in Powys - Welshpool
Sleeps a maximum of: 5
Pricing From: £315.00 - 665.00
This charming Grade II listed 19th century lockkeepers cottage at Pool Quay on the tranquil Montgomery Canal in Mid-Wales, is an ideal base for walking, canoeing, fishing, bird-watching, visiting historic sites, exploring the Welsh Marches and Shropshire borders, or just relaxing.
It is 4 miles from Welshpool, a market town in border farming country - but only ½ mile along the canal towpath from the village pub. Powis Castle and the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway are nearby, with many places of interest an easy drive away.
It provides cosy 3-bedroom accommodation for 4-5 in one double bedroom, a twin bedroom (convertible to kingsize) and a single bedroom - with a shared family bathroom (bath with shower over). Believed to have been built in about 1850, it has been sympathetically restored to keep its original quarry-tiled floors, exposed beams and Victorian multi-paned windows. It has a logburning stove - but no telephone, television or central heating, to give you an idea of how life used to be! Approached on foot over a traditional humpback bridge, it has a quiet lockside garden and glorious views over hills, pastureland and the canal, which is a SSI and lies on the Offa's Dyke Walk.
