About Heather Lawton

We have lived in the beautiful village of Berriew all of our lives and look forward to sharing it with you.

Heather Lawton purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Heather Lawton chose Welshpool

We have lived in the area all of our life and we bought the property in 1999 and run it as a Post Office and Corner Shop until it closed in 2008.

Due to the closure it was necessary to find a new life for the premises and due to its lovely central location We decided that it would be an ideal location for guests to explore and enjoy rural Mid Wales.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is very conveniently situated, just a mile off the main A.483 and also has a bus route through the village.

It is situated in the very active working village of Berriew, which has two pubs, a Spar shop, butchers shop, a deli/tearoom, gift/card shop and a church, all of which are within view of the cottage.

It is in an excellent location for exploring the area by car, cycling or walking.

Would like a return visit.

  • 5 of 5

We liked the village location with bedroom and roof terrace overlooking the river. We liked the cottage, two bedrooms and bathrooms, one up one downstairs, airy well equipped kitchen, all perfectly clean. We also liked the walks from the door and local pubs. We disliked leaving and nothing else.

A lovely cottage in a pretty village setting.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is has been modernised to a very high standard but still retains it's original charm. It is very well equipped and comfortable and it is situated in the centre of the village. It is only a couple of minutes from 2 pubs, a butcher, a general store and a tea room/ delicatessen,

The owner lives next door and is very helpful should you need any information about the local area. A nice touch was that she left a cake in the cottage for us when we arrived.

We would have no hesitation in returning.

Perfect location for us and a comfortable cottage to come back to each day

Great location for walking the Montgomery canal, making use of local buses from right outside the cottage. Local shops provided all we could want, including lovely cake from the tea shop in Berriew
