About Heather Lawton
We have lived in the beautiful village of Berriew all of our lives and look forward to sharing it with you.
Heather Lawton purchased this Cottage in 1999
Why Heather Lawton chose Welshpool
We have lived in the area all of our life and we bought the property in 1999 and run it as a Post Office and Corner Shop until it closed in 2008. Due to the closure it was necessary to find a new life for the premises and due to its lovely central location We decided that it would be an ideal location for guests to explore and enjoy rural Mid Wales.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is very conveniently situated, just a mile off the main A.483 and also has a bus route through the village. It is situated in the very active working village of Berriew, which has two pubs, a Spar shop, butchers shop, a deli/tearoom, gift/card shop and a church, all of which are within view of the cottage. It is in an excellent location for exploring the area by car, cycling or walking.

In the heart of Berriew in Wales, this cottage is convenient for day trips around the area or for just relaxing and enjoying the townspeople and the local pubs and restaurants.
Everything is provided and the accommodations are comfortable. We would definitely go back again.
A truly lovely property in a beautiful location.
From this location we had easy access to a number of wonderful places driving through beautiful countryside and having a really comfortable house to return to each day.The village had lots of amenities to make the stay enjoyable, even hosting an art exhibition for local artists. The cottage has been modernised to a very high standard and we were made very welcome by Heather Lawton.

A lovely cottage in a pretty village setting.
The cottage is has been modernised to a very high standard but still retains it's original charm. It is very well equipped and comfortable and it is situated in the centre of the village. It is only a couple of minutes from 2 pubs, a butcher, a general store and a tea room/ delicatessen,
The owner lives next door and is very helpful should you need any information about the local area. A nice touch was that she left a cake in the cottage for us when we arrived.
