    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We have stay here twice within four weeks, the accommodation is of the highest standard, there is everything you think of to make your stay perfect. The standard of furnishings in the apartment are high quality, which gives you a sense of luxury which makes your breakaway even more special as you feel like you are renting a luxury apartment. The kitchen is again high quality with everything you could need to create a filling meal after a day exploring the beautiful surroundings, the added bonus of a slow cooker is fantastic and the dishwasher also makes it more of a rest not having to do the the dishes after a meal. The log burner with the endless supply of logs made for cosy evening, as well as the hot tub which was a fantastic way to start and end the day with complete relaxation. The owner of the apartment was so helpful and welcoming, and really cared that you were comfortable and enjoyed your stay. All in all we had two fantastic holidays and would recommend it to anyone visiting Shropshire as nowhere could match the standard of holiday accommodation on offer.”

    • “A lovely cottage on the edge of the market town of Bishops Castle. It has everything you need and a little extra. The hot tub is a real delight and fantastic for that early morning coffee or relaxing after a day exploring the area (I can recommend Lake Vyrnwy, beautiful). The cottage was roomier than expected with a large lounge and two good sized bedrooms. The wood burner was lovely and there was plenty of fuel provided. Bishops Castle is a nice little town and I would definitely stay here again.”

    • “Tub with a view”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “A very well appointed let with a super hot tub in the garden which allowed views of the Shropshire countryside. The bedrooms were luxuriously set up with TVs and i-pod docks. The kitchen was satisfactory (a few more utensils would have been useful). The location in relation to the town was ideal with a five minute walk into the centre. A wide range of hostelries and cafes was present. The garden was a relaxing place to while away the evening although the road noise was a little intrusive.”

    • “Liked the hot tub and the peace and quiet, the owner was very helpful. Also liked the general location and the lovely apartment. We will be back.”

    Mrs Mckenna, Worksop, October 2015

    • “Because of our large party, we rented the Brewhouse as an addition to the Old Schoolhouse - giving us maximum flexibility of accommodation and a haven for the most senior members of the family. All the facilities were excellent - and our stay was much enhanced by the support that we had from a most welcoming owner.”

    Prof Biddiss, Alton, August 2015

    • “We loved our trip. Enjoyed the hot tub, tennis and local pubs and shops! A great apartment with a good lounge/seating area to play games and chat with friends.”

    Mrs Goringe, Harrogate, May 2015

    • “"The cottage is a little gem in the lovely market town of Bishop's Castle. The hot tub was a real delight; the place to be for an early morning coffee or a glass of bubbly at night."”

    Mrs Gardiner, Leyland, March 2015

    • “I loved the simplicity of how a great time is achieved. Relaxing atmosphere, great food within a minutes walk, local ales with history & the hot tub is amazing.”

    Mrs Westwood, Walsall, September 2014

    • “The location was excellent to either stop at the accommodation or venture out, we did both. The countryside and roads were great to travel on, mainly enhanced by the scenery. To have access to a hot tub was excellent in lovely surroundings. The list goes on..”

    Mr Payne, Ipswich, July 2014

    • “Convenient location for our activities and a very comfortable base. Loved the hot tub!”

    Burgess, Keighley, June 2014

    • “The location of the property was ideal. The cottage owner was extremely helpful and friendly. The property was very comfortable and well equipped - one of the best self catering properties I have stayed in. Hot tub was a wonderful bonus.”

    Miss Parkes, Chesterfield, April 2014

    • “The property was situated close enough to the lovely town centre that was full of friendly locals, but just far enough away to have you think that the setting was more rural offering privacy, peace and quiet. The property was excellent and had everything that was needed! We did meet the owner who was very welcoming, as too were everyone that we encountered over the short break. In conclusion we would definitely come back again”
