About Upper Castlewright Cottage

Welsh Border holiday cottage with stunning views, Mid Wales Border Country Pet friendly

  • A truly stunning rural idyll this delightful, detached stone cottage dates back to the 15th century and is in a spectacular position for walking holidays right on the Kerry Ridgeway, 500 yards from Offa's Dyke with stunning unrivalled panoramic views of Wales' two highest mountains, Cadair Idris & Snowdon, on clear days.
  • This pet friendly Kerry Ridgeway holiday cottage with WiFi has been refurbished to a very high standard and retains a wealth of beams, original features and a woodburning stove in the open plan living area.
  • Upper Castlewright Cottage is steeped in history. It has twice been a 'Drovers Inn', once in the 16th century and again in the 18th century. In the 1850's known as 'The Britannia' it was a watering hole for drovers from deepest Wales and further afield taking their livestock to the London markets. They penned their animals across the pathway outside, in what is now a second garden.
  • This is the glorious unspoilt Welsh Marches borderlands peppered with market towns and historic sites - a timeless part of the world with lots to explore. Pet friendly.

21st March 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and loved Upper Castlewright Cottage - well equipped,†packed with interesting features and all modern conveniences. We were toasty warm and very comfortable despite bitterly cold winds and snow flurries. We visited lovely old market towns of Shrewsbury and Ludlow. Yarborough House in Bishop's Castle, just down the road, has a wealth of second hand books and records and serves coffee and cakes, even on Sundays. We had a delicious lunch at The Bottle & Glass in Picklescott - an interesting drive through beautiful countryside.
