Bishops Castle

The Castle Hotel is almost in Wales but is actually just in Shropshire. From its hilltop perch it presides over Bishop’s Castle, a quirky, buzzy border town. It’s a perfect gateway to explore the unspoiled countryside and castle of the Welsh Marches and historic borderlands.

Map of Mid Wales

Henry and Rebecca Hunter, a young couple with bags of energy, have breathed new life into the historic listed building. But wisely, they have kept what’s best about it. The woodpanelled bars are filled with old prints and traditional games, not flashing machines or big-screen TVs – and there’s an outstanding range of real ales on tap.

The oak-panelled dining room is over 300 years old, but when it’s warm and sunny you can eat alfresco in the Castle Garden. This area alone – beautiful terraces and water features with far-reaching views – makes The Castle worth a visit.

And like the rest of the hotel, the bedrooms retain their warm, traditional character while appealing to the tastes of today’s travellers.

About Mid Wales & Brecon Beacons

Tucked away in the southern part of Mid Wales you will find the Brecon Beacons National Park, home to dramatic peaks and mountains including the popular 886m high Pen y Fan. A vast national park covering over 500 square miles and is less than an hour’s drive from Cardiff making is very accessible for day trips from the capital.
