Welcome to the gateway to Mid-Wales! Tucked away right in the heart of Welshpool, but sharing a boundary with Powis Castle and its parkland, Touchstone Guesthouse remains hidden away and private. The house benefits from seclusion with views of the countryside but with easy access to the local shops, pubs and restaurants. Powis Castle is on the doorstep as is the Llanfair Light Steam Railway. The area is a walker’s paradise with Offa’s Dyke, Glyndwr's Way and Montgomery Canal close by. Further afield is Lake Vyrnwy and the beautiful Welsh coast which, along with several mountain bike centres, can be reached in just over an hour. The charming Georgian town of Montgomery is only 7 miles distant with its Michelin starred Checkers restaurant and interesting independent shops and galleries to b...Welcome to the gateway to Mid-Wales! Tucked away right in the heart of Welshpool, but sharing a boundary with Powis Castle and its parkland, Touchstone Guesthouse remains hidden away and private. The house benefits from seclusion with views of the countryside but with easy access to the local shops, pubs and restaurants. Powis Castle is on the doorstep as is the Llanfair Light Steam Railway. The area is a walker’s paradise with Offa’s Dyke, Glyndwr's Way and Montgomery Canal close by. Further afield is Lake Vyrnwy and the beautiful Welsh coast which, along with several mountain bike centres, can be reached in just over an hour. The charming Georgian town of Montgomery is only 7 miles distant with its Michelin starred Checkers restaurant and interesting independent shops and galleries to browse around. The Castle kitchen provides a perfect place for refreshment after a climb to see the atmospheric ruins of Montgomery Castle. Berriew is another picturesque village just five miles away, home of The Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture and beautiful 'black and white' architecture. Touchstone is really two houses joined with a glass atrium. The owners live in one section but the house has been cleverly designed so that the houses do not overlook each other. The house has its own entrance, enclosed south facing garden and parking area for two cars. It is an upside down house with the open plan kitchen and living area upstairs to maximise the rural views creating a light filled space with beams and wooden oak floor. There's central heating throughout and a cosy wood burner in the sitting room. The kitchen has a dishwasher, washer/dryer, electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and freezer. There is also a television with DVD player,Sky and WIFI. The three bedrooms are downstairs, one with double bed and the other two have king-size beds with carpet in all bedrooms. The family bathroom has a roll top bath and shower. Bed linen and towels provided.More
