  • "We thoroughly recommend this cottage."

    Very comfortable in all respects. It has a delightful garden which was great for the dog, entirely safe. Also lovely to sit out in. It is directly opposite the 3 Tuns pub and brewery, the food and local beer both being excellent. The owner of the cottage was there to meet us and is very friendly and helpful. It is in a great position for enjoying the many walks across the hills or exploring the small towns. We definitely hope to return!

    Thank you Jane and friends for your review and kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Laurgeths and took full advantage of Bishops Castle and the country side.

    The house and garden are beautifully presented and maintained, and very comfortable. Our party of eight were very comfortable, particularly loved the well equipped kitchen. Weather permitting we could dine outside in the large garden and views from the back of the house are stunning. Thank you for the stay, the warm welcome and brilliant communication from the proprietor and we will definitely return! Oh yes, Bishops Castle itself is a hidden and unspoilt gem.

    It's a beautiful house and garden, very nicely laid out. Decor and furniture ideal for a big group. There is everything provided that you could think of needing plus extras. Comfortable and tastefully decorated without the clutter of ones home. It was so nice to be able to go back there in the evening to spend time together. A lovely welcome from Amanda. I'd happily choose to stay here again. Plenty of small shops and pubs in the town and places to eat out. Very friendly locals too.

The property

Tucked away in the heart of Bishop’s Castle in Shropshire is this semi-detached cottage, Laurgeths House.

Welcoming eight guests, as well as two four-legged friends, Laurgeths House boasts enclosed outdoor spaces, open-plan living and stunning interior so that friends and family alike can come together to relish the perfect retreat to Shropshire.

Enter the property after ambling through a spacious garden into the charming kitchen/diner, allow the designated chef to get to grips with a fantastic range of appliances as you settle down at the dining table; pop open a bottle of fizz and toast to a fantastic getaway before tucking into a feast.

Alternatively, during warmer months step outside to a private patio and decking to enjoy alfresco mealtimes in the peaceful backdrop of the Shropshire Hills AONB.

Retreat to a homely sitting room and curl up in the warmth of a roaring woodburning stove, click on the TV and bask in some light entertainment with your loved ones close.

When the evening draws to a close, ascend the staircase and complete your routine in the family bathroom, take a soak in the bath or fresh up with a revitalising shower before drawing back the covers of a sumptuous double or single bed and drift off into a refreshing night’s embrace.

Begin your morning at Montgomery Castle and admire the ruins of a 12th-century Norman structure, traverse the stunning landscapes of the Shropshire Hills AONB where an array of walking and cycling trails can be peppered throughout or spend the day at the Land of Lost Content Museum.

If you are a keen walker why not explore the long-distance footpath loosely following the Wales–England border of Offa's Dyke Path.

By night, venture to The Three Tuns Inn pub and brewery, located across the road from Laurgeths House, offering delicious meals, a variety of real ale, and a history-rich visit, referred to as the 'beating heart' of the area.

Travel by car to the charming town of Shrewsbury to discover Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery and Shrewsbury Castle in addition to a plethora of pubs, restaurants, cafes, and independent stores where you can pick up a souvenir or two.

From your doorstep you are also well-positioned to journey to the bustling city of Birmingham, boasting plenty to fill your days, making Laurgeths House the perfect spot to begin your Shropshire retreat.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £450.
