Two romantic cottages in the heart of the Welsh marches
Vicarage Cottage and The Old Vicarage Coach House are two separate one-bedroom properties offering self-contained accommodation in The Old Vicarage’s grounds. The Coach House is approached through a cobbled courtyard, adjacent to the main B&B, while Vicarage Cottage is hidden away in the lower gardens, with a small private garden all of its own. Both are charming period buildings, furnished with country antiques, and of a character rarely found in rental properties. Both are delightful, luxury cottages, and in a perfect location to explore the sights of this beautiful region.
Temporarily closed for building work: The Coach House has been lovingly converted to luxury accommodation. The large sitting/dining room with a balcony is on the first floor, giving far-reaching views across the Radnorshire Hills. The open plan kitchen is compact but well-equipped. On the ground floor there is a double bedroom with a charming with a brass half tester bed. The en-suite bathroom has a shower over the tub, giving guests the choice.
Vicarage Cottage is a wisteria-clad, half-timbered cottage, a paradise of exposed beams and period features. The living room, with rugs and quarry tiled floor, has an inglenook fireplace and a Victorian coal-fired range. The well-equipped farmhouse-style kitchen has a dining table and views over the fields. An ancient oak staircase winds up to a second sitting room and a double bedroom & bathroom with exposed beams and a lovely brass half-tester bed.
