The Experience

The sort of place you’ll be congratulating yourselves on booking. There’s masses of space and the light simply pours in, as do the spectacular views: on clear days you’ll see Cadair Idris, the Berwyn Hills and even Mount Snowdon sixty miles away. The kitchen is designed for convivial cooking with a huge table for chopping or chatting, a range cooker and a built in wine and beer cooler. Fresh flowers, eggs from the farm hens, and a handpicked selection of local produce will be waiting.

On rainy days you can settle down with books, board games or telly in front of the wood-burner, but hardy walkers will be striding out. Join Offa’s Dyke Path nearby or tackle Cadair Idris. Return to supremely comfortable bedrooms (one downstairs with a wet room is fully accessible) each with their own quirky characters.

The garden has a massive barbecue, an oak beam canopy with decorative lights and a hot tub with grand views.

Fabulous property and views. Beautifully appointed with hot tub and lovely walking from your doorstep. Alex and Jackie very helpful with so many wonderful things to see and do. We will be back.

Claire, Dorset

What a wonderful place! A fabulous secluded location with sweeping views and equally as impressive inside. A creative restoration with great spaces and sympathetically done to reflect the building’s history. A fantastic place to spend time whether in the hot tub, seeking out a quiet corner to read or simply to sit in the lounge with a cocktail drinking in the view. Would love to go back and am telling everyone who will listen how lovely it was.

Darren, Wiltshire

Whitehall Dairy will remain in our memories as the most idyllic countryside visit in many years of travel in the UK . Apart from the pleasures of the wonderfully restored barn, the broad views over the Vale of Montgomery, and the ducks, geese, guinea hens, and other assorted animals, the friendliness of the owners made our loved by all my family. A perfect place for hiking and just roaming the Marches.

Marion, Ardmore

Very impressed with what Alex and Jackie have achieved here in turning a dilapidated barn into a super stylish, deeply welcoming and comfortable property. After a long view-filled walk return to cook well and talk much - a soak in the hot tub will limber you up. In or outside you will drink in views that can reach 60 miles to Snowdon's peak. There is much to do from this rural eyrie. A total gem.

The neighbourhood

Either way you approach it is dramatic - on top of the ridge you are at 1,000 feet. The feeling is remote but you have the owners just behind and there's another farm down the lane. Montgomery is a five-minute drive: a delightful small town with a Michelin-starred restaurant, a good pub and a ruined castle. Explore Powis Castle, Lake Vyrnwy and Roundton Hill - an iron age hill fort.

Local points of interest from Jackie & Alex Matthews

  • Pull on your walking boots, fire up the hot tub and set off on a circular walk (with plenty to choose from). In Spring daffodils line the quiet lanes and wildflowers are a plenty along the verges in Summer, far reaching views make every walk special.
  • Explore the nearby hills, our favourite is Roundton, but there's plenty of choice for walking and cycling routes published by Montgomery Trails. Enjoy a well-earned pint of Monty's prize winning ale at The Cottage or Dragon in Montgomery afterwards.
  • There are lots of great pubs nearby serving delicious meals. If you fancy a real treat Checker's pantry offer a take home option or pick up a selection of tapas from Shed38. Pop into Montgomery on market day for a coffee and browse in the famous Bunners.
  • Montgomery sits in the Anglo-Welsh borderlands with plenty of castles and Offa’s dyke nearby. The Welsh prince Llywelyn the Great built Castell y Bere. In response to his growing power Henry III built Montgomery castle. Dolforwyn Castle is also a favourite
  • You're an hour's stunning drive from the coast (or jump on the train). You have the choice of long empty stretches of sand at Ynyslas or if you prefer pretty seaside towns choose from Aberdovey or Barmouth. Stop off at the ospreys or Ynys hir on your way.
  • For the more adventurous head up to the Long Mynd for a gliding lesson. Have a picnic, fly kites, pick bilberries amongst the wild ponies, stop off in The Bridges. If powered flight is more your thing book a helicopter ride at Welshpool airport.


Jackie & Alex Matthews

Alex and Jackie bought Whitehall Farm in 2012 and since then they've been working on the renovation of their house and the Dairy. The farm has a long history and some interesting previous owners - it's much smaller than it used to be, but they run the 8 acres and barns as a smallholding with a few ponies, sheep, ducks, geese, chickens, cats, dogs and 'anything else that turns up' they say.
