Sorry, no pets and no smoking. Shops 7 mins walk, pub 5 mins walk. Note: Owner is an electrician, two light work vans will leave yard between 8-9 am during the week. Note: No mobile signal for O2. Region: A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was 'the quietest place under the sun' and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England. Town: Bishop's Castle is a lovely market town located in the stunning natural splendour of the South West Shropshire Hills. The town holds a weekly market which showcases local produce, and there is also a superb choice of shops, pubs and eateries. The Annual Real Ale Festival is famous, and regular Fairs - the most popular of which is the Michaelmas Fair - are regularly held in the town. Bishop's Castle is in an ideal spot for touring the beautiful Welsh Marches and rural Shropshire, with walks along Offa's Dyke and Shropshire Way. The lively towns of Ludlow and Shrewsbury are an easy drive away, and the area offers many visitor attractions for the whole family, including the Severn Valley Railway and the fascinating Powys Castle.More
