Submit Review
Bank House provides exceptional accommodation for groups and large family gatherings. Following a complete renovation in 2015, this fine Georgian house sits in the centre of the quirky medieval town of Bishop's Castle and at the heart of the Shropshire Hills AONB. A perfect location for walkers and cyclists alike, or as a venue for a special celebration.

What makes a stay at Bank House unique?

Guests love staying in this historic house, with its spacious rooms, log burning stoves and oak panelling. The double staircase is a unique feature which typically provides the backdrop to group photos. The accommodation also includes a fully-equipped yoga/pilates studio on the second floor, with space for 8 to 10 mats. Bank House has a large south-facing terrace overlooking its private gardens - a great location for a barbecue or for a G&T after a day in the hills. Both self-catering or B&B options can be offered, or a mixture of the two - treat oneself to a fully-cooked breakfast, and have the use of the kitchen for lunch/dinner.

What is the capacity for Bank House?

Bank House has five guest bedrooms and can host up to 14 people, with total flexibility to suit your group. Each room can be set up with a super king bed or with twin beds. Two of the rooms can have one additional full sized single bed. One room can have two additional full sized singles.

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Bishop's Castle area?

Bishop's Castle is a great base for enjoying the Shropshire Hills AONB, with some outstanding walking and cycling routes at close hand. The Shropshire Way comes through the town and Offa's Dyke is nearby. The town hosts some standout events throughout the year, with the walking festival, beer festival and Michaelmas Fair being particular highlights. Situated around 40 minutes from Shrewsbury and around 30 minutes from Ludlow, Bishop's Castle is a great base for exploring South Shropshire and mid-Wales.

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

The town has a number of excellent pubs and restaurants, and wonderful beer from the Three Tuns Brewery - the oldest licensed brewery in the UK. There is good food shopping here, with an award-winning butcher, delicatessen (specialising in British Cheese) and the Co-op within two minutes' walk. The Town Hall hosts farmer's markets and there are weekly markets in nearby Montgomery and Lydham. Guests who choose to have the full breakfast service are offered a great choice of local produce, a fresh fruit platter and homemade granola and bread. Breakfast can be adapted for those with special dietary needs.

We hired the whole B&B for our weekend get together. The space was perfect for 8 adults and 6 children. Having use of the big kitchen was great for self catering but the location of the B & B in the middle of pretty Bishops Castle meant there were plenty of places to eat out. The rooms and living space were spacious and beautifully decorated. Hiring the whole place meant having the added bonus of a bathroom for each room. Gerry was a great host and the welcome homemade cake and bread was a nice touch. Would definitely recommend it for groups...

We were back for a second visit, this time with 6 more family members. Again Gerry has made us feel very welcome. Excellent breakfast, excellent rooms that are beautifully decorated and almost un-english bathroom facilities (instant hot water and proper modern showers). And Gerry manages to find the right balance of being there when you need her and giving her guests lots of privacy.

Thoroughly enjoyed our break staying in Bank House, has certainly gone straight to the top of my favourite places to stay. Loved the breakfasts especially the homemade granola, and the blueberry muffins. The lovely lemon drizzle cake on the return from our walks was most welcome. The room was lovely and huge and the bed was lovely and comfortable, can't fault anything about our stay and would definitely love to return in the future.

The house was beautiful & Gerry the owner very helpful, welcoming & accommodating. Being a large group & having the run of the house made it feel extremely homely & comfortable - exactly what we'd wanted for my hen weekend
