We stayed here on our Offa's Dyke Path trek in july 2016. John and Mary welcomed us after a day of rain in their wonderful cottage. Because pubs were closed Mary drove us to a nearby pub to have dinner. Fantastic people, fantastic place. Highly recommended.

John & Mary were on holiday when we tried to book for last weekend, thus Mary directed us next door to her daughter, Jackie's, beautiful new B&B. Before we even had our cases out of the car we were drinking a cup of tea and having a slice of freshly baked cake in front of a roaring log fire ~... More

Whilst working away from home Mary and John provide all creature comforts and nothing is too much trouble. The breakfasts are 1st class with a variety of in season homemade fruits and preserves and fresh duck eggs. Kind and generous hosts, in the countryside very close to Welshpool

This property was as close to the perfect B&B as I have visited. The hosts John and Mary could not have been more charming and helpful. John even drove us to a lovely nearby pub for our evening meal. The cottage is so picturesque, whitewashed, with honeysuckle climbing the walls – a garden full of roses. On arrival Mary gave... More

Heath Cottage is right on the Offa's Dyke path and an ideal location to stay. Mary and John were wonderful hosts and gave a lift to and from Montgomery for us to explore and eat. We had a lovely room with great en suite. And of course a great breakfast.

U recently stayed here for 3 nights. What a lovely place and John and Mary are a very nice couple. The heating was on in the room for my arrival which was very good. I will definitely stay here again and recommend as much as possible. Again, thank you for looking after me Colette

This was one of the best bed-and-breakfasts we stayed in. A lovely warm welcome, with tea and home-made cakes, large beautiful comfortable rooms and ensuites, and the best breakfast (with home-made juice and jam). We enjoyed chatting with Mary and John, who were also able to give us a good recommendation for dinner. Thanks again!

The owners John and Mary offer a warm and friendly welcome to this character B&B. It offers everything that you would wish from a top B&B venue. From a welcome cup of tea with home made cake to an excellent full Welsh breakfast. The local knowledge and information is an added bonus.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Recharge your batteries in our 280 year old home on Offas Dyke between Powys Castle [N.T.] and historic unspoilt Montgomery. The old house has an inglenook with log fire in the oak-beamed sitting room and uninterrupted views to Welsh and Shropshire hills. Heath Cottage is a working smallholding with ewes, lambs, free-range hens and ducks. We have been welcoming visitors to our home since 1981 whether they be walking Offas Dyke, exploring Mid Wales or breaking their journey on the way to the coast or Snowdonia. 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. ... more   less
