A comfortable, pleasant apartment. The heating was good, and we particularly appreciated the wood burning stove on a cold, wet night! The showers were powerful and efficient. Communication with the owner was excellent; his friendly, informative approach made an essential contribution to the success of the holiday.
Dr Eames

A beautiful apartment with a lovely wood burner fire. The property was very well equipped, everything provided for you. Hot tub was amazing, lovely & warm, great to get in after being out on a cold January day. The owner was very welcoming and helpful. We loved Bishops Castle, it is a very old historic town with great pubs, food & friendly people.
Mrs Askew

This was an excellent flat with street level access for the disabled and easy bathroom facilities. The lounge was great; large and light with plenty of comfortable seating. The place was very warm with copious hot water for a winter holiday. All the amenities were top notch.The owner went out of his way to make our stay comfortable. The location was great; on the edge of the town with views out across to the Long Mynd but close to all local amenities.
Mrs Hutton

Liked the hot tub and the peace and quiet, the owner was very helpful. Also liked the general location and the lovely apartment. We will be back.
Mrs Mckenna

Because of our large party, we rented the Brewhouse as an addition to the Old Schoolhouse - giving us maximum flexibility of accommodation and a haven for the most senior members of the family. All the facilities were excellent - and our stay was much enhanced by the support that we had from a most welcoming owner.
