Would you rather be stay in a B&B tucked away in the hills above town? Right on Offa’s Dyke and the Welsh Border you will find The Pentre. It’s a 16th century farmhouse so far down a country lane that you might think you were lost but so worth the drive when you see the awesome views down the valley.
