The Forest Country House B&B and Cottages
Ranked #2 of 16 Newtown B&B and Inns
Reviewed 24 April 2012

We stayed the weekend and had a wonderful time in a very well appointed room that includes a very comfortable bed and fully fitted walk in shower. The house is full of fine features including a traditional lounge where we spent several fun hours playing bagatelle. Michelle and Paul looked after us extremely well with delicious food. Highly recommended.

fantastic gem in mid wales that ticks all the boxes! lovely place, great breakfast choice, large clean rooms furnished to a high standard, free wifi, really comfortable beds and only a 5mins drive out of newtown. Will definitely be staying again next time I'm in that part of the country!

A beautiful location, a warm welcome from Michelle, some interesting books and objects including Paul's astronomic telescope. We were recommended by them to the Kerry Lamb - a straightforward good local inn.

Beautiful house and gardens, welcoming owners and very comfortable rooms. Loved the suit of armour in the hall and would have experimented with the star-gazing telescope if we had had longer. Add to this a short flat bike ride to an excellent pub in Ceri, and it would be difficult to know what else to ask for! We were cycling on so only spent one night, but it deserves longer.

The Forest nestles in a secluded valley surrounded by sheep fields and partly wooded hillsides. You reach it along narrow winding lanes with high banks topped by ancient hedges and huge old oak trees, but only a few minutes from the main road to Newtown. We stayed two nights and could happily have made it a week. At first sight this is a typical country house hotel with heavy doors, thick carpets and dark stained wood furnishings. But the owners were not at all stuffy, on the contrary they were relaxed, friendly and hospitable, showing us to the spacious guests' lounge complete with grand piano, the beautifully furnished dining room and the light and airy bedrooms, all fitted out with attention to detail and quality. The bed was comfortable, the view over the gardens (complete with badminton lawn) and fields was superb and the bathroom was lovely. A heated towel rail, large towels, biodegrable toiletries, Fairtrade coffee and interesting teas were all amenities we appreciated. Paul offered useful local information and pointed us amongst other ideas to a genuine Italian restaurant in Newtown which we enjoyed the first night, but on the second we really didn't want to leave the Forest, so we were delighted to be able to cook for ourselves in the kitchenette provided for guests. This was a great bonus for people like us travelling on a budget but also very useful if you just wanted to chill a bottle of wine to drink on the terrace. The friendly hens roam around the gardens and fields and their eggs were a welcome feature on the extensive breakfast menu, which catered unusually well for vegetarians.
We would definitely come back!
