Goetre Hall is a magnificent country house that sits in a tranquil rural setting, amongst the gentle rolling landscape of the Welsh borderland. Four years ago, the present owners were out walking, and standing on the brow of a hill, to admire the scenery, saw Goetre Hall below them. The sight had an immediate wow factor for them both, and they decided to discover more about the property. They were amazed to find it was for sale, and now say that it was almost as if they were deliberately drawn to this very special and unique home. Goetre Hall enjoys a secluded position, but is not isolated, as Meifod village is at the end of their drive. It is a friendly, much sought after village and has a variety of clubs and societies, a convenience store, pub and primary school. In twenty fifteen, it had the honour of holding The National Eisteddfod. The village is approximately seven miles from the bustling market town of Welshpool and Shrewsbury is a short drive away.
