Guests tell us they sleep very well, have never tasted such eggs (Free-range hen or duck!) Marmalade to die for and the best homemade red currant juice they have had in their lives.

Notes

Heath Cottage is an old C18th House with short, straight but rather steep stairs .Most people cope with the stairs and we will do our best to help if you require assistance.All bedrooms are on the first floor.One ensuite bathroom has one small step in the room otherwise there are no steps once you are upstairs. The car park and short path to the front door is level.The surface is chippings and a few stone slabs near the door.The entrance door is fairly wide and there are no steps at the entrance or on the ground floor.Access to the Lounges and Dining Room are on the level. The gardens are mainly level with only a few places where there are one or two steps.There are two down from the house on to the terrace which is surfaced with old York paving slabs.You are very welcome to walk around the gardenand also our smallholding. We are 4 miles from Welshpool [main line railway station] and Montgomery, there is a limited bus service in the day[not Sundays], taxi cabs are available or we will willingly fetch you from the station. Do not hesitate to ask if you need anything or need assistance.
