    Brilliant. We had a great time, with everything we wanted from a short stay- peace and quiet, fantastic food and beer and attentive staff. The location is deeply rural and very pretty, with easy access to many local beauty spots- and lots of castles! Recommended.

    Beautifully renovated and separate from the main building, attention to detail with friendly staff makes this the perfect place to stay in Bishops Castle. Good English breakfast with the fussiest of diners accommodated. Just wish we'd had longer than a weekend.More
