This beautiful Edwardian cottage is positioned in the heart of the magnificent gardens surrounding Powis Castle. Built in 1908, The Bothy’s Edwardian, half-timbered style was chosen to reflect the rustic cottage garden theme that was popular at the time. It offers fantastic views over the garden from the majority of its rooms, all of which have traditional features. The market town of Welshpool is a leisurely 1 mile stroll through the medieval deer park.

Things to see and do nearby
- North Wales
Renowned for the dramatic mountain scenery of Snowdonia with its lakes and rock-strewn mountain passes, North Wales also offers a surprisingly varied countryside, from the beautiful Conwy Valley to the tranquillity of the Isle of Anglesey. The coastline is equally diverse, with sandy beaches, rocky coves and spectacular cliffs - and standing proudly over the land and seascape are some of the country's mightiest castles such as Penrhyn. The National Trust owns some 60,000 acres of coast and countryside in North Wales, including some of the majestic mountains of Snowdonia, unspoilt coastline on the Llyn, and an array of historic houses and castles.
- Welsh borders
The border counties of England and Wales have some of the most beautiful countryside in the United Kingdom with the added bonus of being rich in fascinating history and culture. Battles have been fought over these lands for thousands of years as evidenced by the abundance of castles, ancient forts, and other historic sites. Powis Castle, built by the princes of Upper Powis is one castle owned by the Trust, which stands in magnificent gardens close to the market town of Welshpool. The austere exterior of the fortress of Chirk Castle, completed in 1310, belies the comfortable and elegant state rooms inside and the beauty of its formal gardens. Offa's Dyke offers excellent walking and nearby Mid-Wales offers wonderful opportunities for birdwatching, with the area being a haven for Red Kites.
