Old Time is a 15th century house in the centre of old Bishops Castle fronted by a local craft gallery. Comfortable en-suite bedrooms and tasty breakfasts with home made bread, free range eggs and local More produce. The shared breakfast table is next to the French windows into the garden and is in the 17th century extension! Bishops Castle is an excellent centre for walkers and cyclists and those exploring this unspoilt border country. The town has two breweries and many pubs and restaurants. Less
