  • “The cottage is in a superb location close to the Three Tuns and Castle pubs in Bishop's Castle.”

    There is a large window with a partial view of Long Mynd which was nice to stare at. Furnishings are ok if a little dated but beds are comfortable and the owner is friendly and helpful. He was very apologetic that the dishwasher broke down on the third day of our stay but that shouldn't be a problem for anyone else as he was going to replace it! Just unlucky for us! The whole area is superb for walking and touring round and we may well return!
