250-Year-old wood beamed cottage with Oak Floors/Staircase in Montgomery town
Cottage in Montgomery, Nr. Welshpool, Powys, Wales – In The Shadow Of The 850 Years Old Montgomery Castle With Commanding Views Out Over King Offa’s Dyke
This delightful 250 year-old Grade II Listed cottage is situated within a short walk of the centre of the picturesque old border town of Montgomery, just down the hill from Montgomery Castle. The views all round are fabulous, making the lovely hill walks and other outdoor activities all the more enjoyable. Nearby outdoor activities include hiking, horse riding, cycling, fishing, golf, boating, canoeing, and landscape and wildlife photography. Montgomery has an 850 year-old castle with grounds, a range of small antiques and crafts shops, a gallery, cafés, The Dragon Hotel (serving excellent meals and a wide range of drinks, including the locally brewed beer), pubs, restaurants, and a small Spar Supermarket (handy for those little extras). The town lies within a conservation area within the boundary of ancient town defences – the walls and ditch. Often seen around the town, in full ceremonial dress, are both the Mayor and lady Town Crier. They attend all the Town’s events and functions and bring another aspect of old world charm to Montgomery town.

About the Owner
My wife Anthea and I fell in love, many years ago, with Montgomery Town, its 13th Century Castle, Monument hill, towns folk, River Severn, history and surrounding countryside. We found a fairly run down, late 1930’s, 3 bed cottage in Montgomery and renovated it, finally settling here in 2012.
Our 18th Century Holiday Let ‘Bank Cottage’ is just a few streets away from where we live, allowing us to personally service the property and maintain it in a lovely condition for our guests. We are on hand at all times should you need information on local services, attractions, events, facilities, country walks, etc. We keep a wide range of brochures and information covering all activities that you may wish to discuss and undertake.
