This was a specific fishing holiday and it did not disappoint. Everything including the owners helped to make this a perfect holiday. Great for walkers and fishing.Owen from Whitehaven - 26th September 2016
Lovely self catering accommodation on a farm, exactly what we needed, friendly hosts and kittens, not too far from Welshpool. Would recommend to others. Recommend The Goat in Welshpool for food. Welshpool & Llanfair Caereinion nearby.Couple from Wirral - 20th September 2016
New Bridge Farm is simply the best of Wales, a magical place to relax, first class and first class host. Relaxing beautiful place with so many things to do, visiting beautiful villages and eating houses.
