Accommodation Description:

The Castle Hotel is in a quiet little square in the Shropshire market town of Bishops Castle midway between Ludlow and Shrewsbury. The hotel has eight delightful en-suite bedrooms three bustling bars and a fine oak panelled restaurant known as The Oak Room. Each of the three bars has its own individual character some with open fires and one with a terrace out into the garden.

The Oak Room has a more refined air away from the hustle and bustle of the bars. In the warmer months many guests prefer to dine in the superb hotel gardens. South facing and elevated with vine-hung terraces and raised fish ponds they have splendid views over the town to the surrounding hills.

You can sit and watch the buzzards and hang gliders soar with a glass of something cooling to hand. The Castle's kitchens produce modern pub food that is healthy hearty flavoursome and fresh - and very good value. The hotel has a comprehensive wine list and there are usually at least five real ales on tap in the bars.
