Lovely, well-equipped cottage in great location for the village. A very reasonable price considering the location and facilities. Friendly owner too. Had a great week.
by Mr Camp on June 21st 2014
The location close to town was very convenient. The enclosed garden was ideal as it allowed our dog to roam without a problem. It was an ideal base for walking parts of the Offa's Dyke trail. Friendly and helpful owners and local people. A lovely quirky cottage on several levels with a well appointed kitchen and modern bath/shower rooms.

Excellent base for walking or cycling. Cottage was warm and welcoming.
by Ms Archer on September 2nd 2013
The cottage was very welcoming. It was filled with books and knick-knacks which made it made very homely. The woodburner was great, and there were sufficient logs for our weekend. We also liked the fact that it was not far from the centre, and that the village was so friendly and interesting. Would definitely go there again, the kids loved the house, so did my son and his girlfriend, overall I give it 5 stars for character and thoughtfulness of the owners.
by Mrs Parker on August 20th 2013
The house has a really relaxing and happy feel to it. The bathrooms both contained fantastic showers. The kitchen was really well equipped. The view from the garden was lovely, you get the same view from one of the twin rooms. It was a real joy to wake to that. We would all recommend a stay here and hope to come back again next year.
by Mr Malley on June 25th 2013
Garden has a wonderful view. Excellent location on the high side of town.
Comfortable cottage in a wonderful location by Yvonne M on May 6th 2013
As frequent visitors to the the town of Bishops Castle we know the area very well, we had only previously stayed in B&B;'s etc, but thought we would rent a cottage. We were amazed at the facilities on offer at this lovely cottage and were really pleased to find some where to stay that exceeded all of our expectations. There are 3 generous sized bedrooms as well as living accommodation over several floors including a conservatory leading on to the gardens that takes full advantage of the views across the hills. A large walk in shower in the first bathroom as well as bath with shower over on the third floor impressed us enormously as other places we have stayed at tend to scrimp on such luxury. The cottage was clean, tidy and felt very homely and loved and it was evident from the minute we set foot through the door that this was a home that is really cherished by its owners, rather than just somewhere they rent out. There is also a wood-burner in the large fireplace in the lounge if the evenings should prove too chilly. With the town of Bishops Castle a mere stroll away with its plethora of brewery's, real ale pubs and shops a-plenty it is a mecca for anyone who loves well kept beer, great food, wonderful walks from the back door as well as somewhere to kick off their shoes at the end of the day, with a beer in hand purchased directly from the brewery whilst sitting in the conservatory in this delightful cottage to watch the birds in the garden eat from the feeder, Highly recommended and we can't wait to return again in the future.

The cottage was a wonderful blend of modern and original quirkiness. Lots of character with a lovely private garden and views. Very helpful owners and Bishops Castle was a great base to explore the Shropshire countryside with good pubs & food and interesting shops.
Great location, comfortable and superbly equipped, excellent val by Stephen P on March 12th 2013
Great location, comfortable and superbly equipped, excellent value for money. Very nice touches were the provision of a basket of logs for the woodburner, a jar of home-made marmalade and a good selection of books, maps and Dvds
by Mrs Gilmore on August 15th 2012
The cottage was really well located in the quaint and interesting town of Bishops Castle. We really liked the extra touches of the home made apple juice and marmalade.

by Mrs Vornanen on January 4th 2012
The cottage was warm and cosy, well situated in a charming small town full of lovely shops, pubs, cafes etc. People were super friendly - the cottage owners were very helpful and like old friends to us. It was fun to watch Morris dancing and have few walks in the amazing countryside. There was plenty of lovely small villages and towns to visit around the area. The cottage felt like home to us - it was hard to leave.
by Jones on November 28th 2011
Great 'home from home' in a fantastic location. Could not fault the property. Owners left logs for fire, included all linen and even left a bottle of wine and delicious, homemade jam - just lovely.
by Mrs Young on September 5th 2011
A cosy, well equipped cottage in a lovely town.

Beautiful comfortable cottage, great position. Bishop's Castle is an ideal location for exploring the surrounding countryside. Highly recommended.
Excellent base for exploring the delights of south Shropshire by barry_morgan on March 30th 2011
This house is an ideal base for exploring the charming old town of Bishops Castle and the delightful surrounding countryside of South Shropshire. It is well equipped and comfortable with full central heating and a log burning stove in the lounge...and no additional charges for electricity. The owner has renovated the property to a high standard. It is ideally located, only a few minutes walking distance to the pubs, restaurants and shops in the town. The garden offers superb views of the Shropshire hills. Parking directly outside the property is not really to be recommended as the road is rather narrow but we had no difficulty finding a parking spot a short distance from the house.This property may not be suitable for very elderly or disabled guests as it is set on 5 levels and there are steep access steps. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will certainly return at some point in the future.
by Mrs Creeth on November 7th 2010
Very comfortable and cosy house with a welcoming atmosphere. The location was excellent also - gorgeous views and very handy for the local amenities and intriguing town centre.
by Mrs Harrison on October 25th 2010
This house was in a beautiful location and had lots of information about things to do. It was one of the best holiday houses we have stayed in.
by Mr Elms on August 23rd 2010
The setting was perfect for what we required.
by Mr Malley on August 17th 2010
Location, quirky build of the property, fabulous views from many windows and particularly the garden, lovely part of the world.
by Mrs Bryan on August 9th 2010
We liked the quirky layout and we had a very comfortable stay. Bishops Castle is a hidden gem and we enjoyed wandering round the many shops. Food at Castle Hotel is superb. Hope to return.
