In the courtyard surrounding the main house lies the Willows and Beeches Lodges' which are situated on the banks of the River Bechan. They have views of St Beauno's Church on one side and ornamental lakes on the other whilst set amidst the beautiful rolling Montgomery countryside.
Both lodges have been lovingly renovated to provide luxurious accommodation with an individual character and charm. The abundance of oak beams and the beautifully constructed staircases are all made from renowned Montgomeryshire oak, grown here on our estate.
The properties have well appointed kitchens, large sitting rooms and connecting dining rooms and are the ideal venue for family reunions, small conferences and celebrations of all kinds.
Catering can be arranged if required.
In The Lodges: The large and spacious sitting and dining room with its oak beams and warm decoration are the hub of the Lodges. There are fireplaces where fires blaze, lovely oak dining tables, lots of luxurious sofas and chairs together with antique dressers, Indian rugs and sporting paintings. They all combine to create a wonderfully airy but warm and woody ambiance making it a cosy and inviting place to be.
The fully fitted kitchens in comes with all usual mod cons, including a gas oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and a high chair. There is also access to a washing machine should you require it.
The well appointed kitchens are ready for any enthusiastic chef to take the helm during a summer self catering holiday.

Shooting Parties: For those wishing to shoot in the area, perhaps at Bettws, Kempton, Gregynog Hall, Brigands, Maesmawr Hall or other local estates, then the lodges are easily reached, not far from Welshpool and the major road networks. Staying in the lodge is akin to going to a friend’s country house party. There is a cosy and welcoming sitting room where the wood burner roars and there are a plethora of luxurious sofas to relax in.
