Built in 2018, Goldcrest is one of four one-storey holiday homes tucked away in their own private grounds. There’s plenty of space around all four sides of the cottage, and the whole area is safe for the little ones to explore. Let them run off to play on the swings while you relax on the veranda and gaze out at the view of the rolling Shropshire countryside.
Inside the property, a large, open plan living, dining and kitchen area has been tastefully designed, with contemporary furniture and a Smart TV. With large windows and sliding doors out onto the veranda, the views are superb. The well-equipped kitchen has a breakfast bar, the perfect spot for you to sit and chat while preparing a meal. Each of the three double bedrooms has a Smart TV, while the twin bedroom has a TV with DVD player.
The Welsh Borders is walking country, with plenty of treks and trails right from the cottage doors. Offa’s Dyke is just a short distance away, and the Montgomery Canal towpath makes for a lovely walk too. The village shop in Kinnerley is just fifteen minutes’ walk in one direction, while if you stroll the other way you’ll come across the welcoming Bradford Arms. After all that walking, why not come back and relax those legs in the hot tub on the veranda – you’ve earned it!

Attractions and nearby amenities
- The British Ironwork Centre is a one-of-a-kind destination, with a metal safari park, artisan workshops where you can watch blacksmiths at work and a shop and café. If you want to see a gorilla made entirely from spoons, this is the place to come!
- Ironbridge Gorge was the birthplace of the industrial revolution, and it’s a fascinating day out for all the family. There are ten museums in all to visit, including a Victorian village where you can wander amongst characters from long ago.
- If there are any steam fans among you, you’ll be spoilt for choice at Goldcrest. The Llangollen Railway takes you for a 10-mile trip through the stunning Dee Valley, while the Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway runs on light gauge track which means it can hug the contours and hills. If that’s not enough for you, the Cambrian Heritage Railway Museum has plenty of exhibits and trains from the past too.
- There are walks galore in the area, including the Offa’s Dyke Path. But one must-see location is Llanrhaeadr Waterfall, all 240 feet of it. You can walk up the steps to see the falls from the top.
- The magnificent Chirk Castle is just a short drive away from the cottage. Originally one of Edward I’s border castles, Chirk became an elegant family home. It’s a great day out and if you’re green-fingered you’ll love walking through the gardens.
- With over 21,000 animals and 500 species to discover, Chester Zoo is one of the area’s most popular attractions. If the little ones are keen on conservation, the zoo plays a big role in protecting species and habitats.
