    The cottage is very "quirky" in lay out with 5 floors which was stated in the Sykes information. The extra bathroom is a plus and the kitchen is well equipped.

    The cottage is very "quirky" in lay out with 5 floors which was stated in the Sykes information. The extra bathroom is a plus and the kitchen is well equipped. The lounge/dining room is big and comfortable with a wonderful inglenook fireplace. The owner thoughtfully left a load of logs for us to use in the fireplace but the weather was too mild to take advantage of that! Both bathrooms were good and the bedrooms had all that we needed. Overall it is a great little place

The property

This cottage is Georgian and part Victorian, a stone and brick built end of terrace property, and makes a welcoming Bishop's Castle self-catering holiday cottage.

Situated overlooking the picturesque town and close to the Castle Green, yet away from any town noise, the cottage offers elevated scenic views of the Shropshire Hills.

The cottage is over five levels and offers comfortable, well-equipped accommodation with a delightful cottage atmosphere created by the exposed beams, large inglenook fireplace and woodburner in the living room.

The south-facing rear garden is ideal for relaxing and dining alfresco whilst taking in the delightful views.

This Bishop's Castle cottage is in a wonderful location for walkers, cyclists and birdwatchers with Offa's Dyke close by, and The Shropshire Way, which passes by the front door.
