The Knighton is a 16 bedroomed hotel situated in the heart of historic Knighton. Its central location in the borderland of the Wales/England Marches makes it an ideal base to explore the unspoilt and varied landcape of this unique area where the counties of Powys and Shropshire meet.

The hotel has one designated accessible bedroom with an ensuite wet-room located on the first floor, which has a double and single bed plus a small sofa bed. This could be especially suitable for families with easy access needs or guests accompanied by their own carer/carers.

There are also several other bedrooms with en-suite wet-rooms which might suit guests with limited walking ability.

This privately run hotel skilfully combines period charm with contemporary decor and prides itself on being able to offer a more personal service. The management are willing to discuss and try to meet guests individual access requirements with sufficient prior consultation.
