We moved from Suffolk to this beautiful borderland after closing our Fine Art gallery when my partner retired. We’ve been busy restoring Warden Court more or less ever since and recently completed restoration of the north-west wing to create a first class apartment. I’m proud we’ve been able to save as much as possible from the original building while adding plenty of modern comforts. Incidentally, the apartment boasts a fine selection of contemporary paintings from Indonesia – which was our gallery specialty.

Surrounded by beautiful hills and valleys, Presteigne sits on the cusp of the old Welsh county of Radnorshire and the English counties of Shropshire and Herefordshire.
The town is located less than five miles from access to Offa's Dyke Path, the most famous of many walking opportunities in the area. The historic city of Hereford and towns of Leominster and Ludlow are all less than an hour's drive by car and the celebrated 'book festival' town at Hay-on-Wye is just 19 miles away.
There are comprehensive railway connections from Leominster (25 minutes drive) with trains to Birmingham, Manchester, London and Newport/Cardiff.
International airports are at Birmingham and Bristol, each approximately two hours drive from Presteigne.
An ancient stone bridge over the Lugg river, close by Presteigne's medieval church, marks the border between Wales and England. The town boasts an award-winning Museum - The Judge's Lodging - and a fine selection of Georgian architecture as well as the early 17th Century Radnorshire Arms Hotel.
A major contemporary classical music festival takes place in Presteigne every August.
