An excellent place to stay to visit Shropshire. The owners were friendly and helpful, without being intrusive.

The location was good and the owners were friendly and helpful. Bishop's Castle is a lovely town with plenty of places to eat out and is full of friendly welcoming people. The place is comfortable and well equipped and is ideal for 2 people.
