About Cwm Cole

Cwm Cole is a spacious holiday cottage in the Shropshire Hills AONB, close to Offa's Dyke, with incredible views of the surrounding countryside. It's large enough to accommodate up to ten people in five bedrooms, with a huge garden, no passing traffic, and only the owners as immediate neighbours. Big families, extended families and friends will all feel very welcome at Cwm Cole, which is near the charming village of Llanfairwaterdine right on the border between England and Wales.

Llanfairwaterdine is a pretty village beside the River Teme. The name sounds Welsh because it used to be part of Wales, being on the 'Welsh side' of Offa's Dyke. As well as being near Offa's Dyke, the village is close to the long-distance Glyndwr's Way and the Jack Mytton Way. A favourite walk leads from Cwm Cole along Offa's Dyke five miles south-east to Knighton, known in Welsh as Tref-y-Clawdd, which translates as "the town on the dyke". Walk the Carding Mill Valley to Long Mynd and Stiperstones, Hergest Ridge, or Clee Hill.

Knighton is a buzzing market town with the Offa's Dyke Visitor Centre and a good choice of shops, pubs and cafes. However, gourmands can't miss Ludlow's restaurants, delis and pubs, not to mention its thrice-weekly market and annual food festival. Ludlow has an impressive castle and some of the best-preserved black-and-white timber buildings in England, so it's also a magnet for those with an interest in history. Local attractions and destinations for a day out include the many castles scattered across this border landscape, one of the best being Stokesay Castle in Craven Arms. Hay-on-Wye, Shrewsbury and Hereford are all around an hour's drive, while Ironbridge is a little further. Aberystwyth and the beaches of Cardigan Bay are also within reach for a day at the seaside.

Cwm Cole is available for holidays all year round, with short breaks possible depending on availability.
