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. There is water available at each pitch and one all weather pitch, also washing machine available (£4). 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!

An excellent site with a peaceful and good ambiance,

Meadow Cottage
Geraldine has provided a loverly site here on good level ground with easy access, each bay has its own electricity point and fresh water supply, Geraldine has two friendly goats which she has taught them to perform a few simple tricks, children will love them. We had an damaged the brown water port on our van on our way to the site( we had hit something in the road on our way to Wales|) which had torn the fixing from the chassis, Geraldine has a feel equipped workshop and was only too willing to fabricate a new mount for us. We have stayed on this site on serval occasions and have always enjoyed it

Greeted on arrival by the owner who took time to explain where everything was, she was very helpful and thoughtful throughout our stay. The site is in a lovely quiet spot with large well spaced out pitches. Easily accessible nice walks from the site. An ideal retreat for a little R and R. We would definitely return.

Excellent CL near Welshpool

Meadow Cottage
We had 4 nights at this excellent CL about 4 miles north of Welshpool, Powys to kick start our 2021 season. Booking was straightforward and arrival instructions clear. The CL is sited about a mile down a single track road off the main A483. There are only a couple of houses and a couple of farms so you'll be unlucky meeting any traffic. Also helps with any noise from the road. Access to the CL is through a double gate and sufficient room if taken with a bit of care, then a swing around to enter a large paddock field for the CL. All 5 pitches have a lot of space. The surface is grass and I'm reliably informed that it hardens up as the season progresses. It was a tad soft this early but the owner has provided flexible mats for siting the units on. Each pitch has it's own water supply and EHU is 2 to a bollard. The owner sanitises each tap for new occupants. Waste water is into the ditch. Toilet emptying is adjacent to Owners house, at the rear. Waist high and into a toilet covered with a board. Tap adjacent. Recycling is required but the bins are provided. Found near the gate entrance to the CL. The Owner is friendly and helpful. She has laminated several walks, both from the site and in the nearby countryside for guests use. Found in a black box by the gate, as is a book for leaving your details for Trace and Test. The Montgomery Canal is just the other side of the A483 for walkers and cyclists and Welshpool has 4 main supermarkets as well as plenty of independent ones. Powis Castle is on the edge of town, and in fact could be walked to from town centre through the estate. Excellent walking and cycling in the area. Buses can be caught from the main road, ask the owner for details. Any downside? Just the one. There is a quarry of sorts by Rodneys Pillar (local landmark seen from site). Whilst there was no blasting we did hear them breaking rocks at some odd times, even up to 11 at night and from 6 in the morning, then nothing during the day. It was the first week back after lockdown so they may just be catching up. Didn't interrupt our sleep. Keep an eye out for the Little Owls and Barn Owls and Tawnies are both in the area. A really enjoyable stay enhanced by borrowing some walks from the owner and a visit to Gregynon Hall near Newtown. Geraldine is an amiable host and her 2 Pygmy Goats are splendid helpers. Hope to be able to use this site again.
