Previous visitors' comments about The Old Surgery:
An excellent cottage for 2 or 3 people. It was well-located with a view out from the edge of the town, about 100 yards from the Three Tuns and the Market Hall in the centre of Bishops Castle, yet with off-street parking.

Lovely cottage and friendly welcome. Couldn't have been better!
