A genuine welcome awaits at this character property, a town landmark
At a glance
Overlooking this medieval town, with its mixed architecture and unusually painted houses, sits the remains of a castle. In 1719, much of the stone from this castle was used to create The Castle Hotel, built on the old baille (or enclosed courtyard) on the instruction of a wealthy landowner. Nearly 300 years on and The Castle continues to welcome guests from far and wide. Many of the comfortably furnished rooms have stunning views across the Welsh Marches. Hearty meals are served in the bar, dining room and on sunny days, on the garden terrace. Bishop’s Castle is famed for its ale and is home to the oldest working brewery in the country. Offa's Dyke, The Shropshire Way and Kerry Ridgeway are all within easy striking distance.
