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.
