What a wonderful unique B&B with a great history. We really enjoyed our stay in this lovingly restored house built in the 15th century with 21st century comfort. We were warmly welcomed by Gill and John, who helped us to a personal parking space and gave us every assistance during our stay. Great for a get away

We stayed in this lovely B & B last year and so were very pleased when we could book it again. We've now slept in both Red and Blue rooms and both are very comfortable. Charming bathroom with the biggest bath I've even been in. The owners are very friendly and do all they can to make sure you have... More

Used by one of our large group every year for the past six years, this place is amazing inside & out & everyone speaks very highly of the owners. There is parking to the rear & the breakfast is superb.

There is also easy provision for parking)... More

Genuine Elizabethan building, very cosy, excellent breakfast and very convenient for walking on Longmynd, Stiperstones etc. I had full English on two mornings and kippers with poached egg on the other. Always well cooked and... 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
