  • "Totally recommend this bungalow for peace and quiet and lovely owner"

    Reviewed by Penny5.0Mar 2024

  • "We have stayed at Glebelands seveal times and it is ideal for both access to the town and for walks in the surrounding countryside."

    The owners are very accommodating and helpful, and the location is nice and quiet. If we had to make two small points, firstly the TV is linked through a Sky box but most of the channels shown are not actualy available, which gets a bit annoying. A Freesat box would be much better. Secondly the checkout time is 9AM which is very early now covid is long past. It is quite a rush to get up and load the car by 9. However, we enjoy our stays and would use Glebelands again.

  • "Superb bungalow which the photographs do not due justice to and should include some of the fabulous views across the countryside, it's a lot larger than shown."

    Spotlessly clean and very well furnished. The owner who lives next door was very helpful but not at all intrusive. Five-minute walk into town with quite a few pubs and a Spar. Could do with some instructions for the TV remotes, as it would appear it's been changed from Sky to Freeview since we booked it. However, overall we would definitely recommend it

    Everything you needed was provided and hosts friendly and accommodating. Bed was really comfortable. Only small issue was that the shower control rather stiff for wife to turn, other than that it was perfect base to explore the area. Would recommend

  • "Our second stay in Glebeland was just as satisfying as last year."

    The quiet location with lovely rural views, but within easy walking distance from the town shops and facilities, makes for comfort as well as convenience. The bungalow is clean, nicely furnished, and well equipped. We have no hesitation in recommending it as a fine base from which to explore the often hidden and unacknowledged attractions of south Shropshire and the Welsh borders.

  • "Glebeland is a real home from home property with every thing provided that you would need for your stay."

    Fully equipped kitchen with extras like dish cloths, Tea towels, kitchen Roll, foil and washing liquid/dishwasher tablets/handwash also provided. Good quality bedding and plenty of clean towels along with very comfortable beds. The TV was a basic Sky package with good reception along with a comfortable lounge/dining room with plenty of seating. We were left a complimentary bottle of wine on arrival and the owner who lives next door was very helpful. The bungalow is a short walk from the centre of Bishops Castle which is a lovely town with plenty of independent shops. There is a Co-op for groceries and we were very impressed with a take-away called Bishops Delight that we used a few times.

    The property is very clean, spacious, comfortable and warm (particulartly important that week, as it was very frosty outside). it is only a 5 minute walk from the town, on a very quiet no-through road. There are lots of walks that start nearby, including the Shropshire Way, all of which we found well signposted, and the scenery is beautiful. We will definitely book this property again.

  • "Our stay wasn’t as positive as we hoped it would be."

    The lights in the living room had cobwebs on them, there was green lime scale deposits on the kitchen and bathroom taps, and the carpet was so dirty we had to clean it when we arrived. There was also a very strong smell in the living room & bedrooms which I presume came from the carpet. We turned on scented candles and added diffusers around the whole place but the smell remained. We found it difficult to enjoy our stay, and consequently, our Christmas break because of issues (mainly the strong smell) that we found in the property. On top of this, there were basic issues of upkeep that were evident throughout the property that impacted my stay and feeling of comfort (such as missing knobs on the stove, dirt and mould on the mouth of taps, lifting carpet and laminate flooring). Considering I paid over 600 GBP for this property, I really feel let down as I had high expectations from the images and reviews of the property from past visitors on the Sykes website. I do hope the carpet is changed/freshened and the property is cleaned thoroughly for the sake of future visitors. Please let me know if you have any further questions about our stay and I can elaborate.

    Thank you for your feedback. The owner was very upset and surprised by your comments as they live next door and helped you to figure out the TV but were not made aware of any other issues so had no chance to assist during your stay. The following guests loved the property, as have most others, and raised no issues so they have struggled to understand your comments but do hope you had an enjoyable stay otherwise. Property Owner
