From the owner

Blodeuwedd Cottage is located on a single track no-through road and on the edge of the attractive and thriving market town of Kington, a 'Border Town' in the Welsh Marches. It's only 10 minutes walk to local shops, deli, tourist info, post office, takeaways, restaurants, pubs etc. The cottage is named after Blodeuwedd (meaning 'Flower Face'), a beautiful woman who was cursed and turned into an owl in one of the stories belonging to the Mabinogion, a famous collection of old Welsh legends.

The cottage is several hundred years old and is one half of a traditional Welsh long-house. One can see how the central circular fireplace has been divided in two, probably a hundred years ago or more. Both the lounge and front bedroom have lots of exposed beams and many of the walls downstairs are natural local stone.

The cottage is wonderfully romantic for a couple and quite magical for children and therefore also ideally suited for families. We also regularly let to walkers and cyclists. The property is full of character with lots of period features. Charming living room with exposed beams and wood burning stove. Bright kitchen, spacious garden and terrace with BBQ. Fitted with all mod cons such as individually adjustable heating in all rooms, DVD player, Sky TV, internet, fully equipped kitchen, washing machine etc.

Included in the rental are logs, electricity, linen and bath towels. Use of local guide books and maps are complimentary during your stay.

Sorry, no pets allowed (not even small and cuddly ones).


We have acquired the “We’re good to go” Industry Standard mark for following government and industry Covid-19 guidelines and having a process in place to maintain cleanliness.

Full end cleaning between stays. Professional cleaner wearing PPE. Two-step enhanced cleaning and disinfection protocol. Please note, changeovers are only possible on Saturdays and check-in is strictly not before 3pm and check-out must be by 10am. Self-check-in and check-out through key safe. Provision of handwash and hand sanitiser.

Our cancellation policy is ‘strict’ but if you need to move your stay due to Covid-19, for example because you have to self-isolate and therefore stay home or because you or someone in your family has fallen ill with Covid-like symptoms, we will happily move your booking to a later time without charging you a penalty.

Sky TV. Broadband internet (wifi and wired). Very completely furnished with high quality furnishings and decorated as a home, not a holiday let. Extensive collection of local guide books and maps. Log-burner and free logs plus excellent heating. Very well equipped kitchen with many gadgets. Large fridge-freezer, eye-level double oven/grill, dishwasher. Beautiful slate floor and rugs downstairs, carpeted upstairs. Lovely garden adjacent to castle mound with gorgeous views to surrounding hills and wonderful sunsets. Pretty patio with BBQ and good quality table, chairs and umbrella. Access from the door to outstanding walks including Offa's Dyke National Path and storage space for coats, shoe rack etc. Quiet no-through road but only a few minutes walk from all local amenities.

Bedroom Details:

The main bedroom is very romantic. It has exposed wooden beams and a beautiful four-poster bed with comfy king size mattress. We provide high quality white linen, warm duvets and plenty of pillows. Wardrobe and lots of drawer space. This is an old cottage and the rooms are not huge, but they work as proper double bed-rooms just fine and feel really cosy and special. They are both romantic and the sort of bedrooms kids love. If a fifth person is staying, we have an additional fold-down bed.

Bathroom Details:

Shower and bath. Heated towel rail. Bath seat available.

Owner's reply:
Dear Clare, I am so sorry you were disappointed by your stay at our cottage. Your ‘average’ rating is the worst we have had in over five years of letting Blodeuwedd Cottage for holidays and I apologise sincerely! We try to be really honest with presenting the cottage by giving a detailed description and many photos, so people get an idea of size and quality before they book. Unfortunately, the kitchen drain problem was unforeseen and had to be fixed during your stay, for which I apologise! The dishwasher and fridge have also been fixed. Due to our high average customer review rating (4.77 out of 5 on tripadvisor and 4.7 and 4.8 on other sites) we are usually fully booked all summer, so any major repair works have to take place at other times of the year, as we don’t want to inconvenience any guests during their stay. Last year we improved the upper garden and the bedrooms and the year before the kitchen. We already have upgrades to the bathroom and the patio scheduled for this autumn :) I do hope you will come to this area to stay again in the future, to relax in the cottage and enjoy the beautiful area of Kington and the Marches. You would be most welcome! Best wishes, Verena
