The Powys/Brecon Beacons region

Vicarage Cottage, on the edge of the village of Norton, nestles in a green valley close the Herefordshire/Powys border. This area, known as the Welsh Marches, is a hidden joy. Small villages set in rolling hills straddle the border in delightful unspoiled countryside. It is a place to walk, relax and get close to nature. A scenic drive away are Ludlow, Hay on Wye, Hereford (cathedral), Shrewsbury, Leominster, Croft Castle & Berrington Hall (both National Trust), Brecon Beacons, Malvern Hills, the Elan Valley (with its impressive series of Victorian dams) and the AA has rated the drive to Aberystwyth as one of the most beautiful in Europe.


Norton is a quiet village set in green, rolling hills close to the small country town of Presteigne. Presteigne boasts the award winning Judge's Lodging Museum and an Arts Festival (every August Bank Holiday). The nearby Titley Jazz Festival takes place at the end of July and the world-renowned Hay on Wye Arts Festival is at the end of May/beginning of June. Food Festivals: Shobdon - June; Ludlow - September; Abergavenny - September; Hereford - October. Presteigne, and Knighton which is 4 miles away, have excellent local shops, including butchers, greengrocer, fish shop, baker and small supermarkets.
