We'd booked in at the wonderful little farmhouse B&B just outside Montgomery - Caemwgal Farmhouse (and this was my review). Caemwgal Farmhouse is actually situated on Offa's Dyke so a great pull for hikers. And the farmhouse is actually on a Civil War battlefield. The Battle of Montgomery was fought here in 1644 but thankfully we didn't experience any hauntings that night!
So after a great breakfast we went off to explore the magnificenlty sited Montgomery Castle, high on a hill overlooking the town and distant hills of Shropshire.
. . . and of course, despite a huge breakfast, before exploring this lovely little town, we just had to have a cake and coffee at the lovely Castle Kitchen.
Delicious Carrot Cake for me and Lemon for Mike.
The Church of St Nicholas is just at the edge of the town.
and we even found a bit of Offa's Dyke to amble along on the way home!!another really great part of the country we'd never ventured to before.
