A very good stay, We enjoyed Bishops Castle as atourist base for many activities. Unspoilt area with an old England feel. Cottage was ideally placed close to town but parking ws difficult close to the cottage. Steep steps to cottage. Ok for us but would be difficult for elderly or disabled. Nice garden in good weathe and a very warm conservatory. Cupboard in the lounge was dangerous. The door came off in hands and cupboard was unstable ..would have damaged a small child!!
However cottage was well equipped and very comfortable. We would definitely return for the right price. Close to good walks and brilliant for the dog. Town is charming and full of restaurants, pubs and breweries. Very enjoyable.

The cottage was really nice and brilliantly located at the high end of a lovely large village. The cottage was well found with only the ktchen being a little light on work surfaces and serving dishes. It was comfortable and well furnished and we really enjoyed our stay apart from one crucial issue, the parking. The onstreet parking was a narrow lane used by large agricultural vehicles amongst other things. When we were there a farmer came through 3 times with a combine harvester forcing us to move the car as he was going to roll right over it! He was aggressive and obnoxious and even called the police who called at 8.30 the following morning. They quickly agreed he was in the wrong and communicated this to him but it rathe took the gloss of our week, so beware the on street parking!!
