About the property

Shepherd's Rest is an excellent choice for a luxury lodge holiday in mid-Wales with friends or family. Set amidst the owners' 35 acres of rolling pastureland, this architect designed and fully bespoke cottage has been built by local craftsmen, utilising the best of local materials, such as locally quarried stone, estate grown Cedar and re-claimed Welsh slates. It's also dog-friendly, so is ideal if you want to bring your pampered pooch along to join in the fun. Located in a picturesque part of rural Powys, the lodge offers the opportunity to completely relax and recharge. Here, simple pleasures including sipping drinks in the bubbling hot tub, gazing into the stars in the dark night skies or cosying up beside the wood burner indoors are extra special thanks to the outstanding views of lush fields and rolling hills. When you wish to venture beyond your beautiful lawned gardens, the charming Welsh town of Montgomery is just a couple of miles away, there are walks along Offa's Dyke there for the taking and the Shropshire Hills are within easy reach too.

The space

The lodge is decorated in an elegant and simple style, with neutral shades and subtle pops of colour, that never detract from the showstopping countryside views. It's flooded with natural light, feels spacious and instantly instils a sense of calm.

As you enter the lodge, there's a utility room with a sink and washing machine which is a very convenient place to leave muddy boots and hang wet coats to dry after a day out exploring - the underfloor heating is a great bonus here The heart of this home is the open-plan living space that combines the lounge, kitchen and dining areas. You'll no doubt find yourself here a lot as the floor-to-ceiling glass bi-fold doors allow mesmerising panoramic vistas across the fields and hills. Open up the doors and you have the very best of indoor/outdoor living.

Indoors there's underfloor heating throughout, a corner sofa, comfy armchair and a wood burner to warm up especially chilly evenings spent in front of the Smart TV. The kitchen features a large central island and is equipped with everything you will require to whip up breakfast, lunch, picnics and dinner, an electric range cooker with double ovens and induction hob, a microwave, a fridge/freezer and a dishwasher. The dining area offers beautiful views to the surrounding countryside and there is seating in the form of a very cosy island bench seat and a dining table and chairs.

There are two bedrooms with the master featuring a super-king-size bed, a Smart TV and double doors that open out to the hot tub. The second bedroom is a twin (that is a zip-and-link system that can be converted into a super-king-size on request); it also features a Smart TV and has the benefit of an en-suite shower room with a WC. There's also a family bathroom with a roll-top bath and a WC.

Outside, there's a large wraparound terrace with garden furniture which is the perfect spot to gather together and enjoy a soak in the hot tub, sip evening drinks or fire up the Komodo BBQ for an al fresco dinner. Beyond the terrace, there's a lawned garden, with lots of room for children to play. If you love the sound of this place but need more bedrooms

Shepherd's Rest can be booked with the neighbouring lodge, Ty Hiraeth, which is almost identical in layout, however with contrasting interior design.
