The Self Catering Holiday Cottages -
Holiday Cottages Mid Wales is a family run self catering business and also the home of Paul & Michelle Martin and their 2 young children. There are 4 holiday cottages and a B&B and they are approached from quiet lanes leading on to separate entrances and private parking for each. Each cottage includes:
The self catering cottages, along with the guest house, nestle in a narrow valley bordered by Gilfach woods and the little river Mule. Our quiet lane hardly sees any traffic apart from the odd tractor.
There are many walks from the door step as well as easy access to well known walks such as Offas' Dyke, Glyndwrs' Way and the Kerry Ridgeway.
Nearby are the dams of Lake Vyrnwy and the Elan Valley which offer spectacular views across the countryside of Wales.
The gardens, which everyone is welcome to enjoy, were laid out over many decades by gardeners with a real passion for planting yet remain informal with a large lawn ideal for games. In the borders there are ancient yew trees, colourful azaleas and rhododendrons, lovely acers and a wonderful magnolia.
You can sit in the garden and watch the abundant wildlife, take a stroll through our woodland by the pond or simply kick a football about.
Its secluded location and virtual absence of traffic makes it a safe environment for children of all ages.
A play area is provided for younger children with a climbing frame, slide and swing. For older children we have Forest Fort, a large timber fort with climbing wall, lookout tower and Flying Fox zip wire.
There is also a games room with various table games for older children and adults to enjoy such as pool, table football and table tennis. Forest Cottages has a tennis court for everyone's enjoyment. For swimming there are swimming pools at the leisure centres in both Newtown and Welshpool.
