Cottages in Presteigne
Straddling the Welsh/English border, the medieval market town of Presteigne is surrounded by unbelievably unspoilt countryside and rolling hillsides, boasting the timeless charm and tranquillity Mid Wales is famous for, perfect for a romantic self-catering holiday for two. You’re not completely cut off from the outside world as Presteigne’s high street offers a wide range of pubs, restaurants, independent boutiques and traditional shops where you can pick up some fabulous local produce to enjoy back home at your holiday accommodation. Nestled alongside the River Lugg at the heart of the Marches, the surrounding rolling countryside is breathtaking; the drive from Presteigne to nearby Aberystwyth was voted one of the ten most beautiful drives in the world by the AA.
Set alongside the River Lugg, at the corner of the three counties of Shropshire, Herefordshire and Powys, there’s plenty to keep you entertained in and around Presteigne. Outdoor enthusiasts can explore the great moorlands, narrow valleys and steep hills of Radnor Forest, or join up with the iconic Offa's Dyke trail on foot or two wheels, both just west of the village, before retreating to the irresistible charm of your holiday accommodation. Travelling 20 miles south-west you’ll arrive at the endlessly quaint town of Hay-on-Wye, famed for its plethora of bookshops and stunning scenery of the River Wye that offers opportunities for canoeing and is the perfect picturesque picnic spot right next to the river.
