Three of us were taken in at the last minute for a one night stay. We were welcomed warmly by Rosie. Our room was delightful, faced onto the road. Very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. I would not hesitate to stay again if in the area. Susan & co

Clean, comfortable, convenient, welcoming and excellent value for money. The property was perfectly suited to the area and owners could not have been more helpful. Would definitely use again if back in this area and would not hesitate to recommend.

I stayed here for the third time in as many years and found it as welcoming, charming and comfortable as before. Each time has been a different room, this time was the Elm room, a small double-bedded en suite that was clean and fresh and perfectly adequate for my needs (2 night's B&B during a motorcycle tour of the area)....

We booked very last minute (on the day in fact), but were very pleased with our choice upon arrival. Norm and Rosie are very welcoming. We stayed in one of the top floor attic rooms with some beautiful exposed wooden beams. The room was clean, warm and full of character. Breakfast was excellent, and included many locally source products. We... More

Beautiful attic room very clean with lovely extra touches and the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Breakfast was nice except the homemade bread when toasted it was as hard as rock. I would visit again if you could have normal bread.

My friend and I were walking the Shropshire Way. We arrived at the OBG wet and exhausted. A warm welcome and lots of helpful advice as well as a brilliant shower were very restorative. Comfortable, clean room with nice extra touches.

Had stayed at Old Brick last year, and have just stayed there for another three nights as we liked it so much. When we told Rosie it was our 4th wedding anniversary the next day, she got in smoked salmon, so we could have it with scrambled eggs and bagels for our anniversary breakfast - much appreciated and very much...

Friends and I spent a night in the OBG, have had a day walking in the local hills. We stayed the night so that we could take advantage of the excellent pubs in the town (most notably the Three Tuns and the Six Bells). The Guesthouse is the ideal place for walkers and is fully geared up to accommodate them... More

We used Bishops Castle as our base for doing walks around Shropshire. We really enjoyed the b&b and our room was very nice. We brought our dog and this was not a problem. It is nice to be able to bring him along and I am not sure the other hotels in the area allow dogs. Breakfast was lovely each... More

We stayed for two nights just before Easter. It was a part of the world we were unfamiliar with but thoroughly enjoyed. The town is small but with everything you'd need. The Guest house was lovely; a gorgeous old building with oak beams and plenty of character. Rosie and Norm were very welcoming and did everything to ensure our stay... More
