David, thank you for a most wonderful stay during our LEJOG trip, just a mile or so from the main road and ideal for us. You made us so welcome and, of the 15 B&B's we stayed at during our trip, this was one of our favourites. Such beautiful grounds and a wonderful breakfast before heading off. We would definitely like to return one day. I would like to say that if you are in the area then do stay here, you will not be disappointed.

We arrived late after taking advantage of a beautiful "SUNNY" evening walk at a nearby lake checking out the waterfalls and wildlife.
"No problem" for David who showed to our room & quickly directed us to the local Hotel which served diner until 9 pm.
A traditionally built farm house with large rooms & squeaky floorboards set high on the hillside within the farm grounds. Our very comfortable and clean room had a magnificent view over the valley. I slept like the preverbial log and was only awakened by a distant bleating of sheep.
Breakfast was home from home for us as we love fresh fruit with our cereal and were then tempted to the fresh poached eggs with mushroom. Local honey ( I took a jar home) on the table with toast meant we had to endulge even more - perfect with good strong coffee!
By the way you DO NOT have to be a walker or Offa Dyke fan to enjoy this part of Wales there are numerous activities and attractions although if it is dry I would reccomend walking the hills with the other "sheep".
In Jane and David Emerton their conversion from farming to B. & B. plus holiday cottages was a great idea for us tourist to the area so is our gain for and a loss to the farming business - keep up the good work you are the perfect hosts!

Room Tip: Although central location this house is well away from traffic and other noise - front facing rooms...

Although not right on the Path, we stopped here overnight on completing the leg to Buttiington Bridge. Of the 12 B&Bs that we stayed in, this was the best by someway. David, the owner, picked us up at the bridge and returned us the next day (£3 each way) and he was a perfect host for the whole time we were there. On arrival we were taken aback by the Country House setting which was different from the normal B&B.
We had booked in for the 3 course evening meal (£20) and the food was superb. There was so much that we thought it was to be shared amongst 4 and not 2! The views from the house and rooms were superb and we were made to feel welcome at all times. This is the sort of place you would take your spouse for a special occasion. The packed lunch we ordered for the next day was also excellent.

Wow. My wife and I stayed here for two nights while walking Glyndwr's Way and Offa's Dyke (we took a rest day in Welshpool) and had an outstanding experience. We called David after the wettest, most difficult day of our three-week trip, and he quickly came and picked us up in Buttington--no problem getting into his car while absolutely soaking and covered with mud. The farm was purchased after WWI by David's grandfather (a veteran) and has recently been converted to a full-time hotel/B&B--and it is lovely. When we arrived he immediately took all our wet things to dry and set us up by the roaring wood stove with a pot of tea. Our room was _vast_ and clean, with an amazing shower and bathroom. Dinner was _outstanding_ (delicious! huge!), and throughout one felt there was nothing one couldn't ask of the hosts they wouldn't try to accommodate. From the farm it's a quick and nice walk into Welshpool, where you can visit Powys Castle. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again for an extended time.

Despite not being directly on the Offa's Dyke route, the option of B&B here should not be discounted. David arranged to come and collect us once we reached Buttington Bridge, and kindly dropped us off at the same spot the next morning. The house and surroundings are delightful and by far our favourite of the 12 we stayed in over the duration of our long distance walk. By arrangement, we also had an evening meal. Being served delicious home cooked food in the dining room really made us feel like Lord and Lady of the manor. I loved it and would relish an opportunity to go back for a longer stay.

Stayed an evening after we finished hiking the Glyndwrs Way Trail. The farm is located approximately a mile outside of Welshpool up a steep road, but the walk was well worth it. David and Jane's home was absolutely beautiful and they made us feel very welcome. Our room was a great size and the breakfast in the morning was wonderful. We definitely recommend staying here.

I stayed with two friends. I was very impressed with the refurbished cottage - plenty of space and our own separate kitchen and sitting room. More than we needed really. There are beautiful views from the site. It's a bit too far to comfortably walk to Welshpool but we had no problem getting a cab back. Great breakfast. Could not be faulted.
