One mile south of Welshpool, (A458) Montgomeryshire. This is a stately home and gardens with 700 years of continuous occupation, building and rebuilding. It was known as Pool Castle in Medieval times. The square tower is thought to be a late Norman keep. A 1668 gateway leads to altered Tudor lodgings and an Edwardian gatehouse. The house is full of memorabilia of India in the time of Clive (his son married a daughter of the house). In the grounds are steeply terraced gardens, planted in the early 18th century. Clipped yews and old roses prosper, as well as tender and unusual plants. There are fruit trees on the terraces and an orangery. The views are superb.
