Description

Situated in the centre of the small historic market town of Presteigne, this is a wonderful detached house with lots of space and is an ideal base for exploring the borderlands of Wales and England. There are plenty of features in this holiday home, with a woodburner, large private garden, five bedrooms over two floors and a games room, and it is an ideal central location for welcoming larger groups or families. A real home from home. Presteigne is a pretty border town formerly of Radnor county, ideal for exploring the Welsh Marches and visiting historic sites and gardens. These include the award winning Judges Lodgings Museum. Being an ancient border town it has ten walks radiating from it. Offa’s Dyke is close by and the Heart of Wales Railway is a must as it meanders from Swansea in the south and Shrewsbury in the north, taking in 120 miles of glorious and varying countryside. There is excellent coarse and fly fishing within a short distance. The nearest is within walking distance of Ivy House and is free. Other options, which require day tickets, are 3 miles, 4½ miles and 9 miles away. The owner, who is a fisherman himself, is also on hand to lend expert advice when needed. All fishing requires an environment licence (available at the local post office). The owner’s of Ivy House are also happy to provide fishing nets for children to use at the local shingle beach, or in the river, to catch tiddlers! Ludlow has some remarkable eating places or visit Hereford or Hay-on-Wye. Visit Hergest Croft Gardens, Berrington Hall, Ludlow Castle or Dunkerton’s Cider Musuem, or follow the cycle trails through the renowned black and white villages. You could even enjoy a special treat at a Michelin Star restaurant within 3 miles or visit the local leisure centre, 50 yards away. Properties W40409, W40410, W41354 and W42756 can be booked together and are ideal for larger groups. Shops, pubs and restaurants within 200 yards.

About the local area

For those who really want to escape it all then mid Wales is the place to go. Because of the vast mountain ranges in this area much of it is uninhabitable. However this does not stop it from being a beautiful place to visit.

The Cambrian Mountain range dominates and because it is often over looked due to the Snowdonian and Brecon Beacon ranges it is a secret just waiting to be discovered. Fish in one of the many reservoirs and rivers or bike up some of the challenging trails across the range.

Further to the east the towns of Builth Wells and Llandrindod Wells both provide amenities for your day in the mountains. From here you can also travel to the Black Mountains in the South East or visit the neighbouring English border
