We stayed recently and had 2 wonderful nights, Jill and John have done a great job with the house. We stayed in the red room with it's lovely big comfortable bed and a nice tidy little bathroom. The breakfast included is large and set us up for the day. At the front of the house you can hear the town... More

Just back from a very nice weekend in Bishops Castle. The Porch House is a lovely B & B with bags of character. The building has a fantastic history if you like that kind of thing. The hosts are very welcoming and make the stay better. We stayed in the blue room that is in the back of the house.... More

This is a great place to stay if you are walking in the area or visiting for a wedding (as we were).. The house is lovely and has a very interesting history- the rooms are timbered and pretty. We appreciated having a small couch in ours, a nice touch! The hosts were friendly, very good recommendations on local cafes, etc.... More

We had a winter break in this wonderful B&B. The historical house is lovely, the hosts really friendly and the breakfast different, delicious and generous. The room itself was lovely, specious with sitting area and a luxurious bathroom. We were given a tour of the house, with some of its fascinating history and that of the town. It's right on... More

Spent 2 nights at this absolutely beautiful house on the recommendation of a friend. Gill and John were very hospitable, helpful, personable and just great people. The room was (as with the rest of the house) just a visual delight with stunning traditional features. The breakfast was more than I could have wanted (literally) and what I had was simply... More

Spent a wonderful weekend in this fabulous house. Gill and John are very friendly. We were shown our room then offered tea and wonderful homemade cake. The breakfasts were great - made from top quality ingredients. We will definitely stay here again and can't recommend it highly enough.

We have attended the Bishops Castle beer festival for the past 3 years....we have camped the previous 2 years but fancied a bit of luxury this time (a brilliant decision considering the awful weather we had been having!) The beer festival is staged by all of the pubs in the town, they all run along the main street which itself... More

An absolutely stunning old and original property - full of character and atmosphere. Large bedroom with anti room and huge bathroom. Off road and secure parking. We were made extremely welcome. Lovely breakfast and I really enjoyed the eggs Benedict. Wish we had had more time to explore Bishops Castle but on our way to John O'Groats so couldn't stop.... More

The only thing average about this place is the price. Everything else exceeded our expectations. The building is very old and has been beautifully restored. We felt priviledged to be able to stay in such an old building. However if you don't like floors that slope and creak, steps in all sorts of places and low doors the Porch House... More

We stayed one night in the Red Room and yes it is quirky but quirky still requires cleanliness. It was okay but needs a good clean and updating. Curtains and rugs grubby. Bath towels need to be white, as does grouting in the bathroom. Wardrobe propped up on odd bits of wood to level it, why not on properly cut... More
