About our home
We moved to The Forest in July 2007 and after extensive renovation opened as a 5 star luxury Country House Bed & Breakfast with our accommodation in the adjoining wing. The B&B will be closed and so we invite you to stay in that section of the house. This comprises 5 charming en-suite double or twin rooms, one with a super-king four-poster bed, spacious drawing room, living room, dining room and kitchen all with fine views of the garden and the Kerry Valley. The house is furnished to a high standard with keen attention to detail. The furnishings and decoration of each room are different but all share a style which respects the original Victorian architecture. All the bedrooms have satellite TV and WIFI. There is a restored antique Bechstein Grand Piano in the drawing room.
Within the grounds there are 3 holiday cottages, a stable block and kennels. Above the stables is a games room with pool table, table football and table tennis. The Forest has a tennis court and a children's play area with a swing and climbing frame. For older children we have a large timber fort with climbing wall, lookout tower, hideaways and a zip wire. The Forest sits in 4 acres of gardens and paddocks. We have 5 rare-breed Badger-face Welsh Mountain sheep in the paddocks and free roaming chickens enjoy the gardens.
The Forest nestles in a narrow valley bordered by woods and the little river Mule. The quiet lane hardly sees any traffic apart from the odd tractor and there are many walks from the door step. The pretty village of Kerry is only a mile away. It has a little shop and post-office and 2 pubs one of which has a restaurant. There are plenty of other good places to eat out in nearby towns.
There is a lot to see and do in this beautiful area of The Welsh Marches including walking, cycling, golf, Clay-pigeon shooting, horse riding, castles to explore, many steam train lines, lakes and pretty villages and towns. The Forest's central location on the border of Wales and England, and good road links makes it an ideal base with easy driving to Welshpool, Montgomery, Shrewsbury, Chester, Ludlow and Aberystwyth. Slightly further away lie the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park, breathtaking Snowdonia National Park and Cardigan Bay. Beaches of Aberdyfi and Borth are just an hour's drive away. There are good train links with the cities of Cardiff, Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool.
