Kington is a small town close to the Welsh borders on the western side of Offa’s Dyke.

Border View is a barn conversion that enjoys lovely views of the valley and hills beyond, just two miles from Kington. This semi-detached holiday home adjoins the owners home which occupies an enviable position on the tree filled slopes of Bradnor Hill, on a 10-acre small holding. The cottage offers accommodation that is ideal for couples enjoying a romantic break or families looking for an enjoyable holiday packed with activities. There are two bedrooms, and an open plan living area on the ground floor with a fitted kitchen and dining and seating areas. Border View has some charming character features such as exposed beams, and outside there is a spacious patio area with a garden, a relaxing place to kick off your shoes after a long day’s sightseeing.


Having a toilet upstairs and downstairs was good and the whole property was spotlessly clean. Easy parking with plenty of space.

Pleasant cottage
The cottage is not very private - it is behind the owner's house (about 20 feet away) and overlooked. There is no large patio area to rear of the house - it is occupied by the owner's caravan; this appears to have been the case for months. Consequently, there is no private area to sit out and not be observed. We were told we could use the owner's garden but this is not he same when you want to relax. Fortunately, we were out most of the time but it would have been nice to have a private area. The noise from the traffic on the main road is quite loud and can be heard from about 06:00 until 22:00. I was hoping for dark skies in this fairly remote area but there is a street light between the owner's house and cottage (about 10 feet away) and this shines all night!

Helpful owners on site; plenty of hot water and excellent standard of cleanliness!

Cosy and comfortable
We arrived to a very warm welcome from the owner. The cottage is small, but big enough for 4 - just. The furniture was clean and comfortable, as were the bedrooms, and a bonus - two loos. The view across the valley is wonderful. There was only just enough crockery/glasses/cutlery. We had some difficulty finding it - it is quite isolated, and the description of how to find the turn off from the main road are a little vague when it's your first time in the area. The isolation isn't a bad thing - so peaceful, especially when you're used to the constant intrusion of the sounds of a city.
