    On the Shropshire/mid Wales borders in a canalside location, within half an hours drive of a host of popular attractions.

    A great opportunity to stay in first floor accommodation overlooking the Montgomery Canal (the discreet owner lives on-site), only 2 miles from the historic market town of Oswestry on the Shropshire/mid Wales border. This is a great place to relax and unwind, with easy canal walking outside your front door. Also available on site is a tea room (located on the ground floor), horse-drawn narrowboat trips (times may vary) and canoe hire. Several pubs are within walking distance. This is an ideal location from which to explore Shropshire, the Welsh Marches and Snowdonia. A must for motorbike enthusiasts, with motorbike parking available. Popular destinations within a 30-minute drive are the walled city of Chester and Shrewsbury, a medieval town encircled by the River Severn with excellent bars and restaurants, and the Theatre Severn. Visit Llangollen, with its steam railway, horse-drawn barges, canal boats and white water experiences. Also within a half hour drive are four National Trust properties: Powys Castle, Chirk Castle, Erddig and Attingham Park. Shops 2 miles, pub and restaurant ¼ mile, tea room on site.

    Robert – 21 Oct 2018
    "Very warm welcome when you get there. Great hosts. The location is really good. On the one hand you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere (it’s so quiet at night), on the other the location is really close to so many amazing places to visit."
    Helen – 22 Sep 2018
    "Lovely warm and light accommodation. The Montgomery Canal runs by the side of the property. Good walks and a couple of nearby National Trust castles. Lovely scones from the cafe below."
    Robert – 22 Sep 2018
    "This cottage and location are amazing we had a wonderful 4 days. Would highly recommend it ."
    David – 12 Sep 2018
    "Lovely accommodation, very spacious and well equipped. Large shower room with good shower.Very comfortable bed and plenty of clothes storage. Kitchen area although small has everything needed. Great view out of living room patio doors, shame we could not use the patio because of the wasps. Fiona and Ian are great hosts, very helpful and keen to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Would definitely recommend."
    Ian & Doreen – 31 Jul 2018
    "We had a lovely time, despite the heatwave!My Mother enjoyed Fiona's scones, watching the harvest being gathered and loved the horse drawn boat trip - details on the attached photo."

    Jackie – 6 Jun 2018
    "This is in the most beautiful location right next to a quiet part of the Montgomery canal and we were met on arrival with a lovely cup of tea. The kitchen is qite small but we managed to work around each other. It was a wonderful base for our walking holiday and our hosts could not have been more friendly and helpful."
    marian – 12 May 2018
    "Excellent cottage. Could not fault. Owners worked hard to ensure our weekend ran smoothly."
    ALAN – 28 Apr 2018
    "A lovely and comfortable apartment in an idyllic spot. Ian & Fiona, although on site all the time because of the tea shop, were unobtrusive but very helpful if needed, and very friendly. The cup of tea when we arrived was most appreciated.Just as an observation, a bit more cupboard space for food storage would have been helpful.We had an extremely enjoyable and relaxing weekend, and would highly recommend it."
    James – 7 Apr 2018
    "A lovely place run by lovely people. The accommodation is all on one level above a tearoom, with just a hedge separating the canal that runs along side.The balcony gives lovely views across the fields and canal and there are so many different birds, including Tawny owls. A ten minute walk along the towpath under the little bridge will bring you to the Navigation pub, or walk another twenty five or so to the Queens Head (ten minutes by car). We ate three times at the Queens Head and the food was very excellent. They serve food 12pm-9pm pretty much every day, so ideal for families like us who aren't great at organising our day.The Navigation pub isn't open an often, but I popped in for a pint on a couple of evenings and found it a friendly place, with many people commenting on how good the food was. Oswestry is close by with about four supermarkets. The Morrisons also has a petrol station.S82994 is run by Iain and Fiona, who are both lovely and real grafters. The coffee, cake, scones etc. were all excellent and all the food was home made I believe.We were able to use one of their canoes for a day which was great fun.We had a great time and hope to be back."
