One of two Beautiful apartments ( this one is on the ground floor but is up a couple of steps so it is unsuitable for wheelchairs) One king size or by arrangement two single beds, in the historic Porch House; a 16th century grade II* listed timber framed town house in the centre of Bishops Castle. This apartment has room to take bicycles. Apartment 2 is under a separate listing.

The space
Charming, interesting accommodation in an apartment attached to an Artist’s home in Bishops Castle. Timber in the house has been dated to the year of Shakespeare’s birth 1564.
The comfortable accommodation includes bedroom with Television, a king size bed which can convert to twin beds by arrangement.
Bath/shower room with an ancient narrow (21 ins) doorway, sitting room with wood burning stove and Television, and a kitchen.
Guests are welcome to use the washing machine and dryer in the main house by arrangement.

Guest access
There is off road parking behind the house accessed from Union Street. Off road sat nav postcode is SY9 5DF

Other things to note
The pub over the road has great music evenings, on most Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays which are free to anyone popping in for a drink. They can be heard from the Porch House but are generally over by 11.30 .
The town hall bells are a lovely sound but it can be disturbing if you’re a light sleeper, ear plugs are supplied.
The flat is directly over the Chai Cafe, which is a delight and serves great curry and Samosas! However the old floors are not very sound proof so if you arrive when Tahira is open ( from 12-6.30) you can hear lively chat from below.
We can provide a fold out bed for one extra guest. A cot and a high chair are available by arrangement.

Location

Shropshire, England, United Kingdom

Bishops Castle is a friendly and picturesque market town in the Shropshire Hills, very good walking country. It is a lively community and there are often events taking place which visitors can enjoy. There are some interesting shops, good pubs including one or two that brew their own beer, and lots of delightful buildings.
