About This Space

This Tram is the bottom ‘First Class’ deck of what was a Double Decker. Built by the Wallasey Tram Company in the early 1900s and has been lovingly restored/refurbished to offer bespoke holiday accommodation. The Tram has masses of original features and a few additions to include a Woodburner, double bed, outdoor kitchen, lovely veranda with spectacular views across the valley to the distant Welsh mountains.

The Space

The Tram once had two spiral staircases at either end which provided access to the top deck, unfortunately, we only have the lower deck, however, the lower deck was much more opulent and this shows in the lovely attention to detail that was created when it was made in 1900c with carving, fret and filigree woodwork inside and lovely little quarter light windows, many of which still open. We have kept the inside uncomplicated to not interfere with the authenticity of this beautiful space.

Inside there is a lovely new glass-fronted Woodburner, double bed and linen, kettle, toaster, small fridge , microwave, table and two chairs, radio, games and all finished off with lovely silk curtains.

The outside kitchen has a sink with a cold tap, camping stove, pots, pans and all kitchen items. This is located under the veranda which stretches around two sides of the Tram including dining area with table & chairs.

Small garden to front and rear.

There is The New bespoke bathroom is situated 10’ behind The Tram and has an electric shower & flushing toilet.

Guest Access

Guests will have private access to the Tram and the gardens around the tram.

We have been creating our very own ‘nature reserve’ here and there is access to most areas within the property, including the woodland with 1200 trees planted in 2011 with the path’s mowed through to lead you through this spectacular area, established wildlife pond, wildflowers, native birds and a mature woodland area also. Absolutely magnificent 40 mile views across the valley looking east and south embraced by mountains on either side. A good place to catch the last of the evening sun up here.

We are 4 miles from the nearest market town of Llanidloes with lots of independent shops selling local produce and we encourage guests to support our rural economy and shops if possible and discourage lots of plastic waste as much as possible.

Other Things To Note

The Goetre is on a ‘bore hole’ for freshwater which gets tested every year and is absolutely pure drinking water so please do not bring plastic bottled water.

The Goetre sits on the escarpment of the eastern escarpment Cambrian Mountains and is at 1100 feet, so can be a little colder here, so bring warm clothes and slippers.
Firewood, enough for two nights will be provided, however, any extra wheelbarrow loads of firewood will cost £10/barrow load upon request. The property does have central heating if needed.

We kindly ask guests to use the appropriate recycling bins as Powys County Council has a strict recycling policy. However, we would ask visitors to bring as little plastic as possible. Shopping in the local greengrocers and butchers in Llanidloes, where you can find locally produced food for sale, also helps to reduce recycling.  This not only helps cut down on the amount of recycling that needs to be done but support the local rural economy. Saturday is market day.

Someone is usually close to hand if you have any queries during your stay and we wish you a lovely time staying in this beautiful historic house and in the spectacular landscape of upland Montgomeryshire.

Goetre is run as an organic smallholding adopting Permaculture principles and to be as sustainable as possible. You are welcome to explore the 5 acres of woodland and grounds but please respect that this little oasis of Nature really belongs to the wildlife. You will find seating placed at strategic points during you walk through the grounds so you can take in the natural beauty of this place or have a picnic in the woodland or field.

Please respect other guests that might be staying in the other properties. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions
