For a small border town Montgomery packs a punch. It’s a pretty place, bustling with Georgian buildings, a castle with ruined battlements from which you can admire the glorious mid-Wales views, a museum so you can delve into its history, a literary and walking festival, a street fair in July and a brilliant farmers’ market every Thursday and Saturday morning. Your downstairs living room and kitchen overlook the market hall and square so you’ll feel very much in the thick of things.
On rainy days you’ll find a Smart TV and maps and guides so you can plan your next adventure while sitting by the wood-burner – this will be a very happy place to be whatever the weather. The kitchen has sleek stone worktops and a good prepping island so everyone can get involved. You are left Welsh cakes and pastries and Coco Pzazz chocolate.
If you’re feeling really lazy then in-house catering can be arranged or you can nip to The Checkers restaurant for excellent food.
