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.
Town: Situated in the outstanding natural beauty of the South West Shropshire Hills, the attractive town of Bishop's Castle offers a weekly market and an excellent variety of shops, pubs and places to eat. It is also famous for its Real Ale Festival and regular fetes - the most popular of these being the annual Michaelmas Fair. Ideally placed for walking and touring the Welsh Marches and rural Shropshire, this little town is well-positioned for trips to the fascinating and well known cities of Ludlow and Shrewsbury – both of which are within easy reach. There are also numerous attractions throughout the wider area including Powis Castle, the Severn Valley Railway and walks along Offa's Dyke and the Shropshire Way.

The accommodation and welcome was as good as we expected, having stayed there before, in 2006. Bishop's Castle is unique, in my experience, having such a range of Pub's and eating out/takeaway options in such a relatively small and friendly place. The country round about is wonderful, with walks from the doorstep or within a short drive or bus ride.
Two breweries in a town of 1500 inhabitants!! I especially recommend the "1642" at the Three Tuns, one of the best beers I've ever tasted.
