  • "Clean, spacious and comfortable accommodation in lovely quiet location but convenient for pubs, shops etc within easy walking distance."

    Just a couple of minor quibbles - Books and DVDs were listed but not available and tap on shower was hard to turn. Slightly disappointed that streaming services not available on TV. But altogether a very pleasant stay.

    It was clean, well equipped and the owner was accessible without being intrusive. We had a lovely time with lots to do in Bishops Castle but also easy to reach other towns such as Ludlow. Would book again.

  • "We had a lovely stay at this bungalow."

    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

    Lovely views and great neighbours. A 3 to 4 minute walk to the nearest pub, though the menu is limited it may be because of covid restrictions. A few minutes more and you are in the main shopping area. Would recommend

  • "Absolutely first class!"

    We have been to many holiday homes booked through Sykes and Glebeland is definitely the best. Great location, great for equipment, great for space and so comfortable. The weather wasn’t kind to us but that just means we can go back again and hopefully enjoy the garden and the short walk into Bishop’s Castle where there are lots of places to eat.

  • "Glebeland is a wonderful holiday retreat in the heart of stunning scenery."

    The location, rural but close to Bishop's Castle meant that it was ideal for the short walk into the centre to admire the historic buildings. The accommodation was spotless, the bedrooms spacious and beds were exceptionally comfortable (good night sleep all round) and plenty of relaxing space (indoors and out). The kitchen was well stocked with more than enough equipment for a family stay. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Glebeland for any visitors to the area.
