This delightful, dog friendly cottage is about 5 minutes walk from the nearest pub and about 10 minutes back (not because of weaving from side to side but because of the fairly steep hills). We were fortunate in that we enjoyed mediterranean type weather and so spent most of our time at the cottage out in the lovely garden with its views over the Shropshire hills. There were so many nice touches to make this a lovely home from home including a welcome gift of tasty home made marmalade.
The bedrooms are all a good size and have very comfy beds. Although there is no parking space at the cottage (owing the the narrowness of the road outside) you can unload by parking on the pavement opposite for a short time. And there is plenty of parking space just up or down the road. The owners are really friendly and are available by phone if you need anything. Bishops Castle itself has loads of eateries and place to enjoy a drink or two. The Shropshire way is just minutes up the road from the cottage and you can enjoy any length of walk along this scenic route. There are numerous other local country walks of varying lengths which are detailed in the cottage's comprehensive library. I'm glad that we booked this property and have already provisionally booked for next year.
Without doubt an excellent property. Well equipped, comfortable and cleaned to a high standard. Lovely position in the town with great views. Could not fault.
TheTown of Bishops Castle is a lovely location and cottage which is located at the top of the hill which overlooks the countryside and has many fine views. But the cottage itself is not one of the most tidiest or cleanest I have stayed in.The owner has lots of books in every room approximate 100 or more.The cottage in my opinion needs a deep clean and a lot of the owners own Property to be removed to give the person staying at the cottage more space. have not given a bad review in the past but I think Sorry to say this needs one
The cottage is comfortable and homely with two good bathrooms and a very well appointed kitchen. It is well situated with several pubs/restaurants and a takeaway very close by. There is a nice little garden with views over the countryside. Unfortunately the weather on our weekend did not really allow for sitting out. We were warned about lack of parking outside but there is plenty of parking just down the road so it was no problem.
