“Amazing getaway spot for a long weekend”
Reviewed 14 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Anna and Jim are some of the friendliest and most laid back people ever. They managed to make our 35-guest group feel right at home. No corner of the property is off limits, they encouraged us throughout the weekend to explore the palace and the suroundings. Fresh air, quiet environment, vintage cars, animals, delicious food, friendly hosts, spacious bedrooms - its all there! This was our second trip & we'll surely be back

“Enjoy your stay in this palace”
Reviewed 12 January 2018 for a stay in August 2017

If you need time to refill your energy, if you need a place for a working meeting, if you want to hideaway with your spouse - visit the palace. It was such a delight. The food, the safe playground, the garden, the beautiful rooms. Absolutely everything! We are really looking forward to our next visit. And more british humor, polish sunny side up eggs and Coronation Chicken.

“THIS IS THE PLACE, THE PERFECT PLACE!”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Cannot thank Jim, Anna and their kids enough. We had such a tranquil, beautiful and welcoming time that it was very hard to leave! In fact we stayed a whole 4 days extra! Trips to the local swimming quarry and lakes, Jim playing the piano, BBQs, the geese, Jims car work shop, the endless bizarre barns - the site itself is enough to get lost in before you've even explored the local area. Nearby Czech town is very much worth the visit, lovely town square where we enjoyed a delightful last meal with Jim and Anna.

Our two apartments were beautiful and spacious, and the rest of our group were very happy camping in the sleeping barn. Prince Bishops Palace seems is perfect get away for small or large groups - we will definitely be back throughout the year.

I've never had such welcoming, open and helpful hosts before - they really added a huge aspect to our stay. Thanks Jima and Anna - we will see you again soon!

“Peace and rest”
Reviewed 23 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I am a returning visitor. I encountered the owner Jim Parton originally through facebook, but he was not previously known to me.

I love the pace and magic of this place where I have rested so deeply. I have been there for magical concerts and for quiet times with friends, surrounded by families unknown (and friendly) or happy quite alone. I love the place. Its history is extraordinary, especially the romance of the charming painted ceiling in the ball room that dates from around 1620.

It is a 'work in progress'. Jim and his gorgeous wife Anna found and have taken on an enfeebled wreck of a building left heartless by years as a Soviet collective (my description not theirs). The ballroom apart, you will not be wowed by fairytale interiors with Versailles grandeur everywhere as that takes time to design, build up and bring to life. There are some very elegant rooms and some very nice suites. The grand bedroom upstairs with balcony is fine and has a rather wonderful bathroom as well its elegant semi-domed ceiling - but there is also a plain-ness that speaks of Jim and Anna's attempt to bring the whole place back to life. It is also a home for their wonderful children, a live-music and sports venue, and I can't imagine how Jim and Anna have already achieved so much in such a small period of time (8 years). I like the ground floor suites off the main courtyard where there are lovely views of the garden across a 'grass sculpture' of an owl that Jim created - these rooms are silent at night, with just the summer sounds of frogs and wildlife.

Jim also has great barns, some are used for sports events, others are used for Ceilidh type live-music events. Others are used to restore old cars.

Jim is a polymath who risks stretching himself too thinly, planting veg in the garden, mowing the rugby pitches, arguing historical minutiae with the local conservators - I know few in his league.

Don't come here looking for prissy, or 'juzhed up' or glamour. This is a place to find your inner Erda and let her hang out idly by the lake whilst deciding whether to walk around the other barn, or around the trees, or perhaps to explore the end of Anna's pebbled pathway. It isn't palatial, but they have troubled to make everything comfortable and simple - and it creates the loveliest simplicity.

The only con I would add is that the family are aware that there are some interesting smells around the place caused by a number of factors that are all being investigated and worked on. This didn't affect my accommodation at all, but I don't want to pretend it was all rosy!
