Elm House, in the pretty, traditional Mid Wales village of Meifod has been lovingly kept and renovated by the same family for over 100 years. Located on the main street, the local shop is within easy reach and the market town of Welshpool is only 10 miles to the south with Oswestry 15 miles to the north, both providing a good range of supermarkets, independent shops and a choice of pubs, cafes and restaurants.
Being in the same family for generations, many of the statement furniture pieces in Elm House are antiques. The front door opens onto the living room with a three seater and a two seater sofa facing the woodburner in the brick fireplace and the flat screen TV, DVD, video players. WiFi is available along with a CD player, radio and plenty of books. The dining room with a table seating 6 comfortably has another fireplace (although not in use) along with a couple of easy chairs. Keeping with the feel of the cottage the modern fitted kitchen, with access from the driveway, has been designed to make the most of the space with a fantastic electric range cooker, Belfast sink, dishwasher and polished wood worktops. In the handy utility room you will find the fridge/freezer, microwave, washing machine, tumble dryer, as well as a further sink. With a ground floor kingsize bedroom and a ground floor bath/shower room with WC and basin providing accommodation for those with limited mobility. Upstairs there is a double bedroom with original built-in wall cupboards and an impressive wardrobe, a twin bedroom and a shower room with WC and basin. Outside there is driveway parking for two cars and a lovely long, enclosed rear garden with a patio area, table and chairs, charcoal barbecue and two lawned areas separated by flower beds and paths.
Meifod sits in the rural heartland of Mid Wales and there is great walking and nature spotting in the area. There are lots of opportunities for enjoying the landscape and outdoor activities with both the renowned Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall and the southern edge of the Snowdonia National Park within a 35 minute drive.

Very good garden to relax inMr Vincent Rollinson - 10th May 2018
We had such a fabulous time staying at this house in Meifod. We stayed over Easter weekend, the hosts kindly had some milk, eggs, butter and bread ready in the house when we arrived which was a thoughtful touch. They also had newspaper in the fireplace with kindling - ready to go! And plenty of wood. We had everything we needed at this house and it was in a great spot in the countryside - the gateway to Snowdonia. Couldn't recommend it more!Marli Cornelissen - 2nd April 2018
Very nice cosy cottage styled house in a small village location. The house was clean and reasonably well maintained, a few very minor issues. The house is fitted with good quality appliances (washing machine said to be temperamental, we didn't use it) and furniture is all in good condition. Bedrooms are all clean and beds and bedding very comfortable. Plenty of wardrobe/storage space. Bathrooms have electric showers, although the water pressure is not brilliant, they are adequate. There is a bath in the ground floor bathroom. The house has a nice enclosed garden, suitable to let a dog outside with reasonable security. There is gated off-road parking at the side of the property. Nice touches are the welcome tea, eggs, etc, the comfortable furnishings and the woodburning stove in the main living room. All wood was ready, dry and supplied inclusive. The village is very small, one shop/post office opening at limited times, but reasonably well stocked (all major shops are close by 7 miles in Welshpool). There is a recently re-opened pub, which has been renovated and serves very good food on a limited menu and real ale at the time we stayed. Both pub and shop are just a few minutes walk from the house. Overall a nice place to stay, a good location for local walks, using a base for exploring Wales or just relaxing in the village area.James Gaudoin - 2nd January 2018
We really enjoyed our stay in Wales, the house was beautiful in a lovely setting, and we felt right at home straight away. There was plenty of room for us all including the dog and the off street parking was a bonus too. We would definitely come back to this house and stay there again, and recommend it to anyone staying in this area.Miss Alison Cameron - 7th September 2017
We had the most wonderful holiday. Elm House has so much charm of an old cottage with some modern character. Fully equipped and well thought out with lots of little extras. The garden was a wonderful bonus and we spent many happy hours relaxing while the dogs played or sprawled on the lawns. We even had fresh raspberries for breakfast from the garden. The house is ideal for a family using all the bedrooms, especially with an upstairs shower room and toilet, but the stairs are steep if you are less mobile and care should be taken on them. The downstairs bedroom is large and very comfortable with a bathroom adjacent. We loved the modern kitchen and fully equipped utility room. The owner left milk and bread etc, plus coals for the bbq. Plenty of logs for a fire if you need one. All in all we had a lovely time, and whilst Meifod is very quiet we enjoyed walks and eating in the recommended inns. It was only 15 minutes to supermarkets are and shops in Welshpool. We will definitely return to Elm House. Thank you Mrs Heather Fuller - 17th July 2017
