2 friends walking Offas Dyke stayed in the two attic rooms here for 2 nights, one vegetarian and the other omnivorous. The rooms are clean spacious and beds comfortable. The shower had good power and there was plenty of tea coffee and milk in the room. The real bonus for us was that given the short days we wanted to... More

Great hosts, with a quirky place full of unique rooms. TV, shower, tea/coffee and very comfy beds. Parking provided out back but also parking available easily if full. Had a top notch breakfast with spicy sausage and black pudding plus Rosie's excellent home made bread - with proper brown sauce! Great value at £70 a night - highly recommended! And... More

Norm and Rosie are always very efficient and welcoming. The rooms are quite small, but clean and comfortable. Breakfast is good with reasonable quality ingredients and a flexible menu. Cost is middle of the road. They are selling up so there may be new owners by the time you visit.

Surprisingly affordable given the quality. I had a comfortable kingsize bed, plenty of hot water and a very good freshly made breakfast of fruit juice, meusli, bacon and poached egg on toast. Much more was on offer but I wanted to eat lightly. The owners were charming and helpful.

The Old Brick House really lived up to all the superb reviews that I'd read in various places. Everything was first class, welcome, room, facilities, breakfast, and, of course, all of this in the fine setting of Bishop's Castle, an outstanding small town on the Welsh Marches.
