    This beautifully appointed cottage is situated in an idyllic setting amidst the Welsh hills, just across the border from Shropshire. For those of us who live in a crowded south east of England and who have to tolerate the roar of the motorway, noisy helicopters and constant police and ambulance sirens it is like being transported into another world. There are places of historical interest nearby (a very old church just a few hundred yards away) and one can find literature on the subject in the cottage. The nearest town is Knighton, just a short drive away, where one can eat at the Horse & Jockey Inn a pub/restaurant which boasts a menu that is as tasty as it is interesting. If you prefer to eat in, however, the Smithy has everything you need for cooking. As is to be expected in such a remote and hilly area, radio and phone signals are not the best but the owners have shown consideration by installing a land line for use in emergencies or for short local calls. To my delight I was unable to obtain a signal for the television but that was probably because the remotes were beyond my capabilities. Besides, who needs TV when there are beautiful hills and a clear, star-filled sky to gaze at? One tiny reservation: do be careful not to bump your head on the bedroom beam (I placed an item of clothing over it and thereby avoided headaches) and don't bring your ageing granny as, even if she could negotiate the twisting stairs, I doubt if she'd get back down. I am not a religious man but, if there is a heaven, it could well be something like a permanent stay in the Smithy.

    Lovely barn conversion, very well planned . Beautiful location and very comfortable. Very quiet but near to many lovely places to walk or visit. The white church on the hill is stunning.

    Cottage is lovely but very remote. There are excellent restaurants within a 15 minute drive, and the countryside is beautiful. Only slight downside is there are not really any walks direct from the cottage
