Why stay here ...

Meadow Cottage is located half a mile off the main road down a quiet country lane surrounded by farmland. The level site affords outstanding views of the Welsh Borders countryside and nestles under the famous Rodney’s Pillar on Breidden Hill. A walk to the top is a must to experience the spectacular 360º views taking in the Shropshire Plain to mid Wales and Snowdon.

A 10 minute walk takes you to Offa’s Dyke, the Severn Way or canoe access to the river Severn. Just 5 minutes’ drive away is canoe access to the Montgomeryshire canal and the river Severn. Cycle from the site along the scenic, elevated towpath into historic Welshpool with its museums, steam railway, canal trips, canoe hire, restaurants, nature reserves, leisure centre, Powys castle and Glyndwr’s way. From Welshpool station, take the train to the coast for a different day out. Just a short hop away are the lovely old towns of Oswestry or Shrewsbury with their black and white buildings, interesting shops and markets.

Visit a local vineyard or enjoy a day at an outdoor activity centre (including quad biking, archery and clay shooting). Within easy cycling distance of Meadow Cottage you will find a choice of country pubs serving good, locally sourced food at very reasonable prices and full of very friendly locals. Cycles are available if needed.

Historic sites abound in this area and walkers will be spoilt for choice – hills and mountains, forests and moorland….  Birdwatchers will enjoy many local nature reserves, including a fine view of Buzzards and Barn Swallows playing round the barn. Cycling possibilities vary from easy, level routes to tough, for would be Kings of the Mountain.

At the site, borrow games or books, or relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of your surroundings. Free range eggs, some seasonal produce and a selection of hand crafted items available for purchase.

Fishing in the River Severn is available just under 10 minutes walk from the site.  To do this, membership of the Birmingham Angler's Association is required for which you can pay by card over the phone. Please contact them on 01562 882116 or 07976 886558 to arrange a fishing permit which must be in advance of your stay.

Dogs are welcome (on a lead please). 

A warm welcome awaits you and I recommend staying a few nights to fully experience what the area has to offer.  Book in before 7 pm please, or let me know if you will be later. I look forward to meeting you soon!

Lovely site with very helpful owner

We stayed here in September for 4 nights. We were greeted by Geraldine and her pygmy goats Peter and Gretel.Geraldine was really friendly and helpful and the goats were so cute, our little dog wanted to play with them! Great location near enough to the main road but peaceful too. We were the only people there at the time but the site is large enough to have your own space if it were full.

Very nice and neat site with very helpful owner

This is a lovely site with a very welcoming and thoughtful owner. You will need transport to get most places but there is easy access if walking the Offas Dyke path between LLanymynech and Welshpool. The Pygmy goats (Peter and Gretel) are very entertaining and will do tricks for (unsalted) peanuts. Plenty of great places to visit within 20mls radius.

Perfect retreat but with lots to discover*****

We have passed through this area so many times and never actually stopped. This time we are so glad we did. This is a wonderful area of Wales, so many lovely walks and places of interest. The site has lovely views and specious pitches, as previously mentioned Geraldine is a wonderful friendly and helpful owner who is happy to guide you to places of interest and her goats Peter and Gretal are a gorgeous addition to this beautiful, homely *****star CL.

Very good CL site

You will find a (sunny) and beautifully maintained site, featuring very generous pitch sizes with water and hookup at each pitch. Easy access to the towpath along the Montgomery Canal which is both meanderingly scenic and of high wildlife value. There's a great bike ride south along the canal to Welshpool and to the outstanding gardens at Powys Castle. Northwards, the canal towpath arrives at Llanymynech Rocks Nature Reserve and Historical Site. Both 5 star destinations! Geraldine is very knowlegable, friendly and helpful and her 2 dwarf goats keep the hedges trimmed (up to goat height). Highly Recommended. July 1st to 4th 2019

Great site for motorhomes

Just had a great weekend visiting this peaceful site. Meadow cottage as easy access,large level pitches ( NO levelling blocks required) the grass is cut short and collected and plenty of water taps. There is superb views in all directions. A 25 minute walk takes you to the newly restored Montgomery Canel the towpath / cycle path is fantastic teaming with wildlife. Also a 5 minute drive takes you to Rodneys pillar free car park with ample parking for motorhomes a great walk with fab views.A short distance from there is the The Admiral Rodney pub well worth a visit serving freshly prepared food motorhome parking no problem.
