Opposite the house is Gaer Fawr, an Iron Age Hillfort dating back to 400BC. Public Footpaths start at the end of our drive so there's immediate access to all the outstanding wildlife, flora and fauna that this part of the world has to offer.

The village has two supermarkets, PO,a GP surgery, Church and two pubs each with a restaurant. It takes about 5 -10 minutes to walk to the village.

Location description from owner

The Wales region

Mid Wales is an outstanding area of natural beauty with a spectrum of landscapes from gently sloping woodlands awash with bluebells and wild garlic to wild and rugged areas within the southern edge of the Snowdonia National Park where you can push yourself to the limit in a variety of extreme and adventure sports. The superb Cambrian coast is just over an hour away where you can dolphin spot, sunbathe in the sand dunes, enjoy gourmet fish restaurants or simply enjoy freshly cooked fish and chips on the sea front.

The lodge house, Tan y Gaer, is part of the Gaer Hall estate. You can relax away from the hustle and bustle of towns and cities and sit outside on the terrace and watch the sun go down. Children can play safely in our grounds.

Guilsfield

Guilsfield is a village some 7 minutes away from Welshpool where there is a range of independent shops and major attractions such as the fabulous National Trust property Powis Castle, and the Welshpool and Llanfair steam railway. The village itself has two shops open 7am - 9pm daily and two pubs, each with a restaurant within easy walking distance. For gardening enthusiasts, the Derwen Garden Centre in the village attracts aficionados from across the UK.

Yes it is quiet, peaceful and an ideal place to spend quality time with friends and family. No, it's never boring. There's so much to do and see you'll need to come back for more......

“This house should not be available for a holiday let”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2016

Upon arrival to the property with my four children and elderly parents we found the property to be in an unacceptable state. The property was dirty, smelt strongly of cats and was completely filled the owners property- even down to filled cupboards. Along with this, the bathroom windows would not shut, the downstairs shower, used by my disabled elderly parents excessively flooded causing a dangerous hazard. The downstairs bedroom was infact a study complete with filthy chair, computer screen, printer and the owners stationary. The abandoned car situated outside the property filled with the owners rubbish was the finishing touch. We do not believe this property should be available to rent, we believe that it does not meet health and safety regulations (including a lack of smoke and Carbon Monoxide deters), we would strongly discourage anyone from considering to rent this property. We have photographic evidence of the state of the property which we are more than willing to make available to anyone who requests. We are currently in the process of negotiating compensation for our horrendous experience.

Owner's reply: I am saddened and genuinely surprised at this review since I always tell my guests when I greet them that I am on site and always happy to address any concerns. Other reviewers will confirm this to be the case. Not once did they come to me with any concerns. We do not have a cat. If there was a smell of cat it was because the guests from the previous week brought their cat. This was not cleared with me beforehand so I had to allow the cat to stay as part of the group. I could easily have dealt with this had it been mentioned. Likewise I could have dealt with any issues relating to the shower. I dispute any suggestion that the property was not clean. There have been smoke detectors (2) and a CO2 alarm since the property was first available for letting so I am at a loss to understand why the guests failed to spot them.( In the breakfast room and on the landing window ledge.) I cannot see a problem in a room doubling as a study bedroom. Lots of people like to have a workspace and access to a printer. Everyone who stays with us knows how we go the extra mile to deal with requests and complaints so I am puzzled as to why nothing was mentioned at the time yet the guests say they are "negotiating compensation." I expect they didn't take photos of the soiled bedding - together with a strong urine smell -they left me to deal with. I could have made this holiday so much better had they come to me in the first place. So sad.

“Lovely quiet property with plenty of room”

Reviewed 6 Aug 2016

Welcomed on arrival by owner & shown around the property, nice welcome pack (wine, beer & welsh cakes). Property was well equipped for all your needs & located within reasonable travel time for most major venues in North & Mid-Wales.

Owner's reply: Steven thank you so much for taking the time to post a great review. We are so pleased you had both an active and peaceful experience during your holiday week at the Gaer Hall Estate. We hope to see you again soon, kind regards Margaret and William Bardsley
