What a fabulous find this barn conversion is. This 5 star barn sits in secluded splendour less than a mile away from the pretty Bishops Castle town. The barn is top spec throughout and we (Gina my wife and Bailey our 8 year old daughter) were impressed from the minute we saw it. Tim (the owner) is a great host and made us all very welcome. The barn is full of gadgets (I'll let you find out for yourself) and is extremely clean and well looked after. The barn will easily accommodate 4 and is very spacious. The setting is beautiful with far reaching uninterrupted views on your doorstep and great walks into town via a public footpath. The top of the range hot tub was a real winner with all of us and really does give the barn, and indeed the whole stay, the WOW factor. The WiFi connection was fast but mobile phone reception was a bit hit and miss (who cares!!). If you decide to stroll into town the castle hotel does great sandwiches between 12 and 2:30pm and apparently the dinner menu is good too. The Co-op is fine for essential supplies and relatively cheap compared to other small local chains in neighbouring villages. We would highly recommend a stay at the barn- it's ideal for anyone who likes a bit of luxury in beautiful surroundings to recharge the batteries without breaking the bank. We really felt at home and it's not often you can say that after a few days away.......We'll definitely be back!!! Byron, Gina and Bailey

“Perfect!”
Reviewed July 10, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have just returned from our stay at the barn and we are sad to be home! What an amazing place, finished to the highest standard and not a single detail has been missed. The owner, Tim, was very welcoming upon our arrival and showed us around, explaining all the gadgets in the barn and how they worked. All very impressive! The views outside are truly stunning and enjoying them from the hot tub was just perfect! The surrounding area is full of beautiful scenery too, in which we enjoyed some great walks. Surrounding villages and towns also very nice and we had a lovely meal at The Castle Hotel in Bishops Castle itself. If you are thinking about booking a stay at the barn, do it! We can't recommend highly enough!

Welcomed on arrival by the owner Tim who guided us around the barn and all its features. The barn has been renovated to a very high standard and set in a beautiful location wth amazing panaramic views. The hot tub was a great feature and used in the evening to enjoy the views and stars with a little drop of vino.
Bishops Castle is well equiped for food and drink with 2 local breweries in the town.
Lots of local towns and villages to visit both for the history and facilities.

Stayed at the bishops castle barn for 3 days. We wanted somewhere to get away from it all and that's exactly what we got. Stunning views and relaxation. Upon on arrival we were greeted by the owner Tim who was very welcoming, who showed us around the cottage and told all that we needed to know about where to eat and drink of an evening. Overall the cottage has been reconstructed to the highest of standards with your very own hot tub! I would without a doubt recommend this cottage!
