Perfect for our needs, in a great locationMr Alan Cole - 23rd April 2017
Loved the cottage would recommend to anyone as central to visit North or South Wales. Montgomery is a beautiful village very central for exploring the beautiful valleys of wales. There is everything you need in the village too and Welshpool not far for the bigger supermarkets if need be.Mrs Walkington - 15th September 2016
