My wife and I have just enjoyed a lovely weekend at Highgate. The house is a really beautiful 17th-century building, set in spacious grounds, with wonderful views over the countryside. The welcome was as warm as the fires burning in the stoves in the lounge and dining room. Our bedroom was big and really comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. There are presumably plenty of walks to be enjoyed nearby -- we should have brought some maps! -- but we drove a little further afield, visiting the lovely town of Llanidloes and even the seaside at Aberdovey. We also enjoyed a very good dinner at the Lion in Berriew. All in all, highly recommended!
