Well Appointed Holiday House, near Bishops Castle (WAA383WA)

The Property is a substantial property in Bishop's Castle, Shropshire, an attractive border market town particularly popular with walkers and beer lovers; the Kerry Ridgeway, Long Mynd and Wenlock Edge provide miles of footpaths with panoramic views, and at the end of a day's walking, the town itself is a centre for Real Ale pubs and micro-breweries. The Property dates back in part to the 16th century, was originally two separate dwellings but has more recently been a Guest House. It therefore provides comfortable and spacious accommodation for 14 people, in six en suite bedrooms/suites.

The fitted kitchen is well equipped with an electric Rangemaster range cooker and additional electric oven/grill, a large fridge/freezer, microwave, washing machine and dishwasher, as well as a breakfast table and chairs.

LocationMid Wales

This is the go to place for outdoor enthusiasts to make the most of the fantastic walking, riding & cycling opportunities, especially in the Cambrian Mountains National Park. The Ceredigion Coastal Path features numerous trails to choose from depending on how far you wish to travel. Whether for a full walking holiday or just a stroll along the cliffs to a village pub, this unspoilt route is perfect and has views out across the famous Cardigan Bay which is home to the UKs largest pod of dolphins.

Dotted along the Wales-West England border are lots of lovely market towns, many of which have their own castle. This disputed ground has a large number of Roman and Norman medieval fortresses, today some are only ruins or just the earthen works remain however there are plenty which have restored to their former glory and are open to visitors.

Mid Wales also just touches on the edge of the Brecon Beacons, a popular mountain range for exploring caves, forest activities and other more extreme outdoor sports such as rock climbing and abseiling. A number of historic railways mean other regions of Wales are easily accessible for a day trip, and make for an enjoyable way to travel and take in the sights.
