Dating back to the 15th century, this cottage oozes with character. It is situated at 1,175 ft on the single-track Kerry Ridgeway, an ancient drovers' road through Wales into Shropshire. The cottage has spectacular views over the hills of Montgomeryshire and Shropshire. It is an ideal touring base for the Welsh Marches, the castles, mountains and coastline of mid and north Wales, and the historic towns of Ludlow, Shrewsbury and Bishops Castle. Just 500 yards from a beautiful section of the Offa's Dyke national footpath, it is also an ideal base for walkers. The cottage has been tactfully refurbished to modern standards to provide accommodation for 5 adults while retaining the ancient character.
