Town: 700 years ago Knighton was the scene of one of Owain Glyndwr's most famous victories against English invaders. Now it warmly welcomes tourists to this attractive and uniquely positioned border town, part of which nestles in England, part of which nestles in Wales. Knighton is steeped in history with sloping winding streets and half-timbered houses. On each Thursday and Friday, livestock comes to market and there are lively fairs celebrated in May and Autumn. With antiques and gifts, old inns with character and good, Knighton is well served by pubs and restaurants. Swimming, tennis, bowls and other sporting activities are available at the leisure centre, while high-quality golf, clay pigeon shooting, game and coarse fishing are also accessible nearby. The Powys Observatory offers a unique and fascinating opportunity to see life around Knighton the moon and distant galaxies.

The cottage is spotlessly clean, comfortable and well equipped. Situated on the edge of this very friendly town but close to shops and pubs with great walks for the dog. Larger towns and beautiful gardens within easy driving distance. Offa's Dyke on the doorstep to cater for leisure and serious walkers. This is definitely a 5* cottage but no Wifi reduced it to 4*.

Well priced and comfortable with all we needed. On road parking although not good wasn't too much of a problem. Close to local shops and take-aways. Helpful neighbours.

from the very first day to the end of our holiday it was enjoyable the cottage was immaculate and cosy but what made it extra special was the next door caretaker,we had a power cut halfway through the week and within minutes there he was showing us where candles were kept.would highly recommend this cottage.
A relaxing haven, home from home.

Honeysuckle Cottage is a very cosy and homely base for exploring a beautiful part of the country. It is packed with the owners personal items that make you feel like a guest in their house. The neighbours are very friendly and helpful. Thoroughly recommended.
Cleanest cottage we have ever rented
Left on 10/23/2011 for a stay in August 2011 | Geoff
We rent a cottage every year and this was, by far, the cleanest,best kept we have stayed at. The location was excellent with quick access to walks,the town, the main road to travel further afield, a good local pub for meals and the indispensible Harry Tuffin's supermarket.
