Things To Do in Montgomery

With vistas that stretch for miles, you can plot your walking trail that you can see from the patio and even if you are not a keen rambler, the glorious countryside is sure to win you over. With access to the Offa’s Dyke trail, there are plenty of options for walking as well as cycling.

Even though you are a stone’s throw from the rural village of Llandyssil, the closest pub and shop is in Montgomery, two miles from the lodge. Take the scenic walk into this historic Borders’ town, just a mile away from Shropshire. Visit Monty’s Brewery, created in 2008 and now winning numerous awards for its ales such as Sunshine, Malarkey, Old Jailhouse and Best Offa. Take a walk through the 12th century Montgomery Castle’s ruins and if you are in town on a Thursday, you can stock up on local produce from the farmer’s market.

The Lakeside Golf Course, just a mile outside of Montgomery, is a great nine-hole course with views over the River Severn and beyond. While the keen golfer takes the course, the others can enjoy an afternoon tea on the elevated decking. The club has a restaurant that serves meals with provenance and it is especially popular for its Sunday lunches
Bishop’s Castle is over the border into England and it is 11 miles from the cottage. Visit the House on Crutches Museum in an original Tudor timber-framed building or take a walk up Cordon Hill for views of both Wales and England.

Last Word

Even though it is as rural as it gets, you are going to be in the lap of luxury in the newly built lodge that leaves no stone unturned when it comes to providing a hassle-free holiday.

There is underfloor heating and a cosy wood burner for when the nights draw in and the kitchen, artfully integrated into the open plan living space. It has everything you need to rustle up a hearty meal; perhaps with the local produce you have bought in nearby Montgomery.

Thanks to the bi-fold doors that lead out onto the Welsh slate patio, the outside is brought in and the views are hard to beat. This is outdoor living at its best when the weather permits, with a table for meals under open skies, two sun loungers, and a hot tub.

Shepherd’s Rest sleeps four and it has a sister cottage next door offering the same accommodation, meaning that a break away for a large group of friends or extended family is certainly an option. So, whether it is time away with family or friends, you can be sure that after a long day out, you will return to a cottage that has all the trappings needed for a pampered holiday.
