The Property 

Squirrels Leap is a delightful, semi-detached period house found on the outskirts of the market town of Knighton (Tref-y-Clawdd) directly on the Welsh/English border within the picturesque Teme Valley.

Available to purchase with no upward chain, Squirrels Leap was originally built circa 1850's and offers well presented accommodation set over 3 storeys, which has been tastefully upgraded and beautifully maintained by the current owners over the past 11 years. The ground floor is made up of a hallway, modern bathroom, sitting room with inglenook fireplace, large rear conservatory and a kitchen, whilst on the first floor there is a small landing area and 2 double bedrooms. Accessed through the second bedroom, a stairwell rises up to a superb attic room, which could be used for various uses including a useful home office. Overall, the property offers a pleasant blend of contemporary and traditional features including exposed stonework, quarry tiled flooring and exposed wooden beams and flooring.

Located right on the very edge of Knighton and fronting onto Kinsley Wood, Kinsley Road is a popular lane which leads directly into the beautiful countryside surrounding the town and is conveniently found 0.5 miles from the main high street and its many independently owned shops and facilities. A mere stones throw from the property are a number of walks including the famous Offa's Dyke National Path, the town's local rugby side (Tref-y-Clawdd RFC) and the railway station which services four trains a day in each direction from Monday to Saturday on the Heart of Wales Railway Line that runs between Shrewsbury and Swansea, along with two services on a Sunday. Kinsley Road is actually part of the Ancient Civil Parish Of Stow.

Outside, the property presents a low maintenance, south-facing, largely paved courtyard garden to the side of the property, whilst at the front is a sizeable, detached wooden garage, which is installed with electricity and lighting. This pretty garden also has the added benefit of a log store and a useful shed, which has a sauna within! At the front of the cottage there is on-road parking available if required.

 

The Location

Squirrels Leap is found approximately half a mile from the main street which hosts a variety of local groceries, retail shops and family run businesses. Knighton offers a good amount of facilities and services including a butchers and a supermarket, a primary school, a railway station, a post office, a bank, a variety of sports clubs which includes a golf course, a builders merchants, regular bus routes, a selection of public houses, cafés and restaurants, a leisure centre, a livestock market, bakeries and a library.

The town features a fortnightly 'farmers market' at the local community centre and also benefits from having a thriving artistic community including The Writers Group, a number of painters, art galleries, potters, craftsmen and a light entertainment society. Still a thriving market town spearheaded by local organisations, Knighton is a peaceful town offering breath taking, picturesque scenery and fully accommodates the laid back, relaxed lifestyle that many potential purchasers will be looking for. Described as the ‘The Gateway to Wales’ this market town is situated on the English/Welsh border. Mostly in Powys, partly in Shropshire it lies on the River Teme and is surrounded by hills giving the traveller a glimpse of the more remote areas accessible nearby.

The town's Welsh name is Tref-y-Clawdd meaning “Town on the Dyke”. This is a reference to Offa’s Dyke, which runs through the town, built by the Saxon King of Mercia to define his border with Wales. Every year hundreds of tourists and walkers visit the Dyke (which in its entirety runs from Prestatyn to Chepstow) and the Offa’s Dyke Centre adding a real vibe to the town during the Spring, Summer and Autumn months. While here, other attractions that visitors to the town often call upon is the famous Space Guard Centre, which offers people the chance to view the wonders of the universe in a fun and understandable way while also raising public awareness of the threat of asteroid and comet impacts and the ways in which they can predict and prevent them. Larger towns near to Knighton are the medieval market town of Ludlow, 16 miles East, and the Victorian Spa town Llandrindod Wells, 19 Miles South West. Both are easily accessible via road or rail links and offer further recreational, educational and leisure facilities.
