Bishop's Castle Barn description

Area
Located just a few miles from the Welsh border in the South Shropshire Hills, Bishops Castle is a town with a rich heritage boasting a weekly market and a wide range of shops, cafes and restaurants and is well known for its annual Real Ale festival (and 2 local breweries) as well as numerous other events throughout the year. The town is an ideal base for walkers as it is close to the Welsh Marches and Offa's Dyke which formed the ancient boundary between England and Wales, as well as being within close proximity of the delightful market towns of Shrewsbury and Ludlow.

Region
A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was "the quietest place under the sun" and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.

An absolutely superb property with amazing views and unspoiled countryside all around. The house is finished to a very high spec and the hot tub on the deck outside where we could relax and watch/listen to the nature all around was just perfect!

The hosts were exceptional. The facilities of the barn were amazing. The cleanliness was immaculate. However, the best feature by far was the scenery. Amazing.

The barn was immaculate, with added gadgets to make it feel even more special. The beds were really comfortable. Lots of books and games provided in case you want to stay in. The views were breathtaking. We can't rate this place highly enough.

The barn was so beautifully converted and despite being next to owners home you cant see each other and your privacy is respected. We weren't disturbed at all. It is so quiet and the views were wonderful from the hot tub.

The Barn is absolutely beautiful! Finished to such a high standard and not a single detail has been missed by the owners. We especially loved relaxing in the hot tub and admiring the amazing views! We were very sad to leave!

A fantastic cottage in a beautiful location. In a lovely little village with some nice pubs for food and drinks, especially if you like your real ales. It was designed to a very high standard. It was lovely to wake in a morning to the sheep and their lambs outside, very cute! The hot tub was brilliant of an evening whilst enjoying a glass of wine under the stars. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be returning and have already booked our next visit.

The Barn is in an amazing location with incredible panoramic views. The Barn was equipped to a very high standard and was easy to stay in. We especially enjoyed the peace and quiet, and of course the hot tub! The local village had plenty of places to eat and 2 breweries to enjoy locally brewed ales.

We received a very warm welcome from the owner who showed us around. There were lovely touches in the design of the barn. The owners have worked very hard to make any guests' stay stress free and totally relaxed, for example the amazing hot tub. Bishop's Castle Barn was within a beautiful setting with no light pollution. The only sounds we heard were from birds, trees blowing in the wind or the sound of sheep. I will treasure the experience forever.

What a fabulous find this barn conversion is. This 5 star barn sits in secluded splendour less than a mile away from the pretty Bishops Castle town. The barn is top spec throughout and we (Gina my wife and Bailey our 8 year old daughter) were impressed from the minute we saw it. Tim (the owner) is a great host and made us all very welcome. The barn is full of gadgets (I'll let you find out for yourself) and is extremely clean and well looked after. The barn will easily accommodate 4 and is very spacious. The setting is beautiful with far reaching uninterrupted views on your doorstep and great walks into town via a public footpath. The top of the range hot tub was a real winner with all of us and really does give the barn, and indeed the whole stay, the WOW factor. The WiFi connection was fast but mobile phone reception was a bit hit and miss (who cares!!). If you decide to stroll into town the castle hotel does great sandwiches between 12 and 2:30pm and apparently the dinner menu is good too. The Co-op is fine for essential supplies and relatively cheap compared to other small local chains in neighbouring villages. We would highly recommend a stay at the barn- it's ideal for anyone who likes a bit of luxury in beautiful surroundings to recharge the batteries without breaking the bank. We really felt at home and it's not often you can say that after a few days away.......We'll definitely be back!!! Byron, Gina and Bailey

Fantastic barn conversion in a fantastic location. The barn itself is clean, modern and furnished to a high standard - including a fully equipped kitchen, and the owner has even provided nice little touches like a selection of board games and DVDs. Outside, the hot tub has a great view over the valley with nothing more than a few sheep and the occasional bat for company - the perfect place to get away from everything and relax.

The Barn was of a very high standard in a fantastic location with everything you need for a quiet getaway. The hot tub is an added bonus that we used everyday with fantastic views of the countryside. You couldn't ask for more. The owners are lovely people who make you feel very welcome. Bishops Castle is a lovely village with nice shops and fantastic places to eat out. All in all we had a wonderful week and would love to return sometime in the future.

We have just returned from our stay at the barn and we are sad to be home! What an amazing place, finished to the highest standard and not a single detail has been missed. The owner, Tim, was very welcoming upon our arrival and showed us around, explaining all the gadgets in the barn and how they worked. All very impressive! The views outside are truly stunning and enjoying them from the hot tub was just perfect! The surrounding area is full of beautiful scenery too, in which we enjoyed some great walks. Surrounding villages and towns also very nice and we had a lovely meal at The Castle Hotel in Bishops Castle itself. If you are thinking about booking a stay at the barn, do it! We can't recommend highly enough!

Stayed at the bishops castle barn for 3 days. We wanted somewhere to get away from it all and that's exactly what we got. Stunning views and relaxation. Upon on arrival we were greeted by the owner Tim who was very welcoming, who showed us around the cottage and told all that we needed to know about where to eat and drink of an evening. Overall the cottage has been reconstructed to the highest of standards with your very own hot tub! I would without a doubt recommend this cottage!

Welcomed on arrival by the owner Tim who guided us around the barn and all its features. The barn has been renovated to a very high standard and set in a beautiful location wth amazing panaramic views. The hot tub was a great feature and used in the evening to enjoy the views and stars with a little drop of vino. Bishops Castle is well equiped for food and drink with 2 local breweries in the town. Lots of local towns and villages to visit both for the history and facilities.

A first class barn conversion with everything and more than you could hope for. Perfect for staying with friends and family. we had great weather which showed off the beautiful surroundings - especially from the hot tub!

Lovely barn conversion with everything completed to a wonderfully high standard. Attention to detail throughout is stunning in every respect with everything you could possibly need including demisting mirrors in the bathrooms! Views around the property are stunning and the pictures dont do justice to what the eyes actually see... Severals ways to get down to the village where there are a couple of places to get food and drink however we did prefer to stay at the cottage, sit on the deck while enjoying the views with the bbq. Definately recomend the property!

An absolutely faultless cottage and the facilities were outstanding. There was fantastic walking straight from the door. The hot tub was a real treat after a days walking.

We had the absolute privilege of being the first guests to stay at Bishop's Castle Barn and I can honestly say it was perfect in every possible way. The location is stunning, the barn is beautiful, every possible need of guests has been thought of and the hosts were so hospitable, kind, friendly and professional that you would think they had been in the business for years. Within the barn itself you have extra little touches that make it incredibly special - a digital frame showcasing photographs of the barn's refurbishment, FreeSat, DVD player, and a docking station for your music. Add to that the bathroom mirrors which are also Bluetooth capable so you can listen to your music in the shower and we were blown away. Outside, the hot tub sits on a raised deck with views over the countryside surrounding you (including the visiting neighbourly sheep!) and of a nighttime, you can relax in the hot tub looking up at the night sky as there is no light pollution at all. I have been back from the barn for a few days now and I honestly miss it so much. I can't wait to go back and will definitely be returning later this year. I can't recommend this place enough - BOOK BOOK BOOK!!
