“Delightful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Excellent accommodation and breakfast, beautiful location, but the extra touches (particularly the tea and cake on returning from our walk!) made this a fabulous place to stay. Sadly we only stayed one night, but Evelyn and Mike still took the time to make us feel like very welcome and valued guests. Highly recommended.

Hi Jane
I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay with us (and the cake!). Having been on many walks myself, I know how good it is to be welcomed with tea and cake!.
Thank you for taking time to review Long Mountain B & B and we hope you will return in the future.
Kind regards
Evelyn & Mike

We arrived late, tired and ready for a good night's sleep. Mike and Evelyn made us welcome, didn't complain about the lateness of the hour, and the following morning served a great breakfast, following it up by a very welcome lift up the hill so we could resume our Offa's Dyke walk. Even without that, though, the B&B is very convenient for the path, and yet not too far from Oswestry itself. The standard of accommodation is superb.

Room Tip: I think all rooms have great views over the valley

An incredibly comfortable and cozy welcome awaits you at Long Mountain. Personal touches and design are to be noticed from the first impression. We came by train and were welcomed by Mike at the station, going beyond the call of duty which was most appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble which in the frantic final preparations for a wedding attendence was once again most appreciated. Beautiful countryside setting, peaceful and relaxing. Most recommended.

If you are lucky enough to find there is a vacancy at Long Mountain then don’t delay.....book it while you can!

This is “premier” bed and breakfast accommodation. The standard of finish to the rooms is excellent and the quality of the bed linen and towels a very high standard. Instant hot water is available on demand, due to a sophisticated plumbing system, which is just one example of the considerable thought and attention that has been given to all the details of the accommodation.

The owners, Evelyn and Mike are very welcoming and will give you as much or as little time as you need. You are free to come and go without interruption and the hosts present and maintain Long Mountain to the high standards they have set for themselves. There is a lounge where you can relax and watch TV rather than in your own room should you prefer. In our case this was to watch the opening ceromony of the Olympic Games.

Breakfast choice is worthy of a good hotel. The quality probably considerably better!

A very peaceful location with far reaching views across to Welshpool and beyond which is about 5 minutes by car.

Overall we could not fault this excellent accommodation and the service that was provided by two most friendly hosts.

Room Tip: Fear not.....there is not a bad room among the three!

A friend and I stayed 2 nights here whilst walking the dyke. We were mainly looked after by Mike as Evelyn was away. The standard of accomodation and food is absolutely excellent BUT what really impressed us was that MIke went the extra distance and nothing was too much trouble. On arrival we were tired from walking Mike instantly produced coffee, tea and cake and we were enjoying this before our boots were off !!. We had left our car 12 miles down the dyke and Mike drove us to collect it. The next day he drove a similar distance to collect us at the end of the walking day and again produced tea and cakes as soon as we were back. He refused any sort of payment for running us around and we had to resort to leaving him a bottle of scotch.
We are cynical grumpy old, men. if we couldn't fault the place no one will.

This is a superb B&B. A beautiful modern room in a tranquil location, with views along the hills. although it is close to Welshpool the surroundings are very quiet and we had a peaceful night's sleep. No effort has been spared to achieve high quality, from the building construction itself down to the elegant crockery and cutlery, and the breakfast was very good. The bedroom was spacious and the large bath appreciated after a rainy day. There is also a comfortable lounge which doubles as the dining room - all furnished with great attention to detail. The welcome was equally warm from Evelyn and Mike, who both made us feel at home and were very attentive to our needs.

Room Tip: Two rooms have shower, one has a bath

An excellent place. Beautifully furnished, comfortable, clean rooms with lovely views about 1 mile from Welshpool. Very friendly owners who made us very welcome. Breakfast was delicious and freshly prepared to order. Will go again!

Room Tip: The shower waas excellent but only one room has a bath, if that matters to you.
