About The Old School House & Cottage

  • Sleeps: 17
  • Bedrooms: 9
  • Bathrooms: 5

This is a wonderful pair of holiday homes, situated just a short walk from the centre of the historic market town of Bishop's Castle.

The Old Schoolhouse is a detached, early 18th century traditional Georgian house. The adjacent cottage is a detached, stone-built, single-storey barn conversion cottage, once the old surgery. Both are set in 1.5 acres of grounds.

The Old Schoolhouse is a wonderfully spacious building set over three floors, and provides traditional, character accommodation, which seamlessly combines with modern facilities, including two very large TVs, to provide a house of real merit.

Three zip/link beds give this Bishop's Castle holiday home flexible accommodation to suit the whole family, while the dining room, with its cosy open fire, seats 17, so everyone can gather together in the evening for a delicious meal, then retire to the sitting room for fun and games, or to watch a film.

The farmhouse kitchen in this wonderful Shropshire holiday home benefits from an Everhot cooking range with four large, individually-controlled ovens, great for rustling up a tasty snack after a long day out and about.

The large walled garden beside The Old Schoolhouse is ideal for relaxing in the hot tub, enjoying a drink or stoking up the barbecue after an exciting day, and in season, guests also have access to the vegetable garden.

The adjacent Cottage offers cosy ground floor accommodation for three, and is perfect for a couple, small family or even the grandparents to enjoy some quiet time after all the excitement of a day with the extended family.

With its own private garden area, and full kitchen and sitting room facilities, it's a wonderful place to escape to for some 'me time'.

This Bishop's Castle accommodation sits in a wonderful location, with an award-winning, real ale pub and restaurant on the doorstep, and all of Bishop's Castle's amenities less than a five minute stroll away.

This is a wonderful location for walkers, cyclists and birdwatchers, with Offa's Dyke and the Shropshire Way very close by.

Explore the Clun and Kerry Forests, the lovely South Shropshire Hills, medieval Ludlow and Shrewsbury, Stokesay Castle and the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site with its ten museums, which are all within easy reach.

With the private hot tub and the shared all-year-round tennis court, these two adjacent properties combine to provide charming, spacious accommodation, perfect for a family gathering or large group of friends who wish to enjoy this beautiful part of Shropshire.
