Nestled into the rolling green valleys of Wales, close to the border with Shropshire, Plas Robin is home to three beautifully contemporary cottages with two-three bedrooms each, sleeping between four and six guests. Lovingly designed inside and out and packed with quirky features and comfortable extras, everything about Shepherd's Rest, Ty Hiraeth and Llety Cariad has been painstakingly thought out. This really is the perfect retreat for couples, friends, families or any other party looking to spend time together in the lush green topography of Llandyssil.
In the two two-bedroom cottages (Shepherd's Rest and Ty Hiraeth) large folding doors open from the main living space directly out onto the patio out front, which boasts extraordinary vistas of farmland and nature, creating an immediate sense of tranquillity and freedom. This room, which benefits from underfloor heating, has been designed on an open plan basis, creating a sense of flow and cosiness which makes this such a popular space. Within the same large space you'll find the dining room with its sleek contemporary furniture, and the living room, characterised by an ultra-comfortable L-shaped sofa, large television, and woodburning stove.
Off this space sit the two bedrooms. The master bedroom boasts a super-king size bed and doors which open directly onto the patio. The other bedrooms is set up with twin beds, and has its own television, as well as an en-suite shower room, while the family bathroom boasts a magnificent roll-top bath tub.
After a long day out and about you'll want to relax in your own private hot tub whilst taking in the marvellous views of your surroundings. These are two properties where no detail has been overlooked and no compromise has been made in creating a house which is simply a joy to inhabit. Also, it's worth noting that Shepherd's Rest allows guests to bring one well behaved dog so guests staying there can bring their canine companion with them
Moving on to the larger, three-bedroom property, Llety Cariad, which is ideal for larger groups and just as sleek and stylish as the other two cottages. Llety Cariad is a stunning, contemporary rural escape that makes the most of its hillside position. Bifold doors perfectly frame the stunning views and there is an exceptional level of attention to detail and a luxurious finish throughout with much of the carpentry bespoke and hand-crafted. On the ground floor you will find beautifully presented twin and double bedrooms, both of which are ensuite. The double bedroom has patio doors which open out directly onto a sun terrace and provides an idyllic spot for a morning coffee.
The open plan living space, also on the ground floor, has been cleverly designed to accommodate a smart kitchen full of high-end appliances, dining area and sitting room with luxurious leather chesterfields and a wood burner. This stunning space extends via bifold doors onto a wrap-around balcony, with access to a large sun terrace with a dining table and hot tub. The floor-to-ceiling views are just stunning and enjoying them from the hot tub with a chilled drink is even better.
Down to the lower ground level, and you will find what is effectively a whole luxury suite. There is a stunning king size double bedroom with bifold doors which open out onto a second large sunny terrace. With views like these you’ll never want to leave your bed! There is a gorgeous separate spa style bathroom with a Chromatherapy shower, body jets and multiple waterflows as well as a fabulous sauna with a Himalayan Salt Wall. Llety Cariad also has perfectly landscaped gardens, two comfortably furnished dining terraces, a hot tub, BBQ and a pizza oven!
These three properties all offer the ultimate getaway for outdoor enthusiasts, offering quick access to Offa's Dyke Trail, and uninterrupted miles of countryside. In the mornings, take a stroll around the private acres the lodge is set on, and collect eggs laid by the free range hens.
In the village of Llandyssil there is a church with a village hall with little events on throughout the year and which also sells a variety of home-made chutneys, jams and marmalades and books, plus a village pub - all just a 10 minute stroll.
Alternatively, head to the small 'Royal Charter' town of Montgomery, a distance of just two miles along some pretty country lanes, with its cricket club, bars, museum, and excellent farmers' market every Thursday. Montgomery also has an array of artisan independent shops, Montgomery Castle, Monty's Brewery Visitor Centre, excellent tennis courts and several very good quality eateries and the Dragon Hotel which is dog-friendly.
With the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty nearby, the Lakeside Golf Course a mile away, and foodies' paradise Ludlow in easy proximity, there really is something here to suit every taste and whim.
We have three beautiful holiday homes; 'Ty Hiraeth ' 'Llety Cariad' and 'Shepherd's Rest '.
Ty Hiraeth and Shepherd's Rest from £350.00 per night.
Llety Cariad from £450.00 per night.
Booking periods are : Monday - Friday (4 nights), Friday to Monday (3 nights) or full week stays.

Absolutely stunning accommodation!! Everything was just spot on. It was so clean, so cosy and so luscious - PERFECT. The location was also fantastic, with lots of things to do on your doorstep and the views from the lodge were just something else! Carol and David were amazing! Super friendly and always only a text message away if we needed anything or had any questions. What also made this stay one to remember was one of their gorgeous dogs - Meg. On arrival we were greeted by a smiley face and a wagging tail. Like an intelligent boarder collie, we were pretty much given the full tour by Meg, leading us to our accommodation and showing us the ropes LOL! She made our holiday and we will really miss her. Thank you again to Carol and David for making my boyfriends 30th Birthday so special.

Plas Robin is a truly special place! We loved every second of our stay here. The lodge was so cosy, and spacious, super clean, with lovely little attention to details. An extra special, unforgettable Christmas getaway for us both. The views were phenomenal. Carol and David are fantastic. We often reminisce about our stay here and cannot wait to return.
