Description from owner

Description

Upper House is a highly picturesque small Tudor Manor House that nestles above the tree-clad valley of the River Lugg bordering a courtyard of stone and oak barns and, beyond them, the tiny church of St Michael's.
With an inglenook fireplace, flagstone floors and furnished with period furniture, this special house provides the opportunity to stay in a truly historic environment, but with the benefit of modern conveniences such as hot water, central heating and squishy sofas.

Location description from owner

The Wales region

The counties of the Welsh Marches run along either side of the border between England and Wales. Originally defined by the 9th century earthwork, Offa's Dyke, this dyke is now the route for a famous long distance footpath and passes through a varied pastoral landscape and close to pretty country towns and villages.
Well known market towns worth visiting include

The Wales region

The counties of the Welsh Marches run along either side of the border between England and Wales. Originally defined by the 9th century earthwork, Offa's Dyke, this dyke is now the route for a famous long distance footpath and passes through a varied pastoral landscape and close to pretty country towns and villages.
Well known market towns worth visiting include Ludlow, Shrewsbury and Chester - where you will find ancient architecture, churches and museums.
The beautiful Welsh coast is easily accessible through the stunning Snowdonia National Park and while there is plenty of culture to be had locally in small, intimate venues, the big concert halls and museums of Birmingham, England's 2nd city, are also only a day trip away.

Presteigne

Tranquil, and with few cars on the roads, Powys is a very rural county with wonderful scenery and easily accessible by road and rail.
With plenty of culture (e.g. The Hay Literary Festival and Presteigne Festival of Music) and outdoor activities (horse-riding, rally car driving, clay pigeon shooting etc) there are plenty of other local attractions such as the Judges Lodging in Presteigne and, particularly for small children, the Small Breeds Farm at Kington.
The local listings magazine Broadsheep (available online) is a mine of information about local events.
There are excellent places to dine out (e.g. The Harp at Old Radnor and the Michelin-starred Stagg at Titley).

“Great place with bags of character”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2015

We chose this place as I always like to go somewhere quirky and interesting at the February half term, and we weren’t disappointed. The photographs do not do the character of this building justice in any way. Downstairs the floor is flagged, with a small area of underfloor heating and there are three main rooms – kitchen, TV room, and living room. There is a fabulous Inglenook fireplace in the living room which really can pump out the heat, something that you really need in a house this age in Feb! There is also a woodburning stove in the TV room and a Rayburn in the kitchen to provide independent heating sources from the central heating. The kids absolutely loved the hidden staircase which winds up from the entrance hall to the upper room with two single beds, which automatically became theirs. This is the most impressive of the upstairs rooms, with the exposed beamwork being at its most dramatic. There are two further double bedrooms, one with the most sloping floor that can be just negotiated, and one in the most modern part which is better for the less adventurous. We loved the way that one side of the bed in the sloping bedroom had been built up to make the bed level. All the upper room floors have polished oak floorboards, lovely to walk on in bare feet. The whole house has an immense charm, but more than that the way it has been lovingly restored by its owners has created a very peaceful atmosphere. They were very pleasant people, making sure there was more than enough firewood for both the fires – I have been annoyed in other places when only given enough for one night and then having to locate more myself. The welcome basket was good too – over and above the normal standard. I particularly liked the camembert, local homemade jam, and nice tin of biscuits. The kitchen was well enough stocked to get by in terms of cutlery, china, glass etc. The owners John and Annie live just outside in a converted barn, and they were pleasant and helpful. It wasn’t the time of year to make the most of outside, but there is a very attractive outside space with a paved area with a raised fishpond leading to a large grassy area. I imagine it would be delightful in the summer. We had a lovely time, and would really recommend this house to either families or adult groups. And as an aside there are lots of good books to browse if you have the time!

A belated thank you Caroline!
