Bank House Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 12 Bishops Castle B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 January 2018

Bank House is a fantastic place to stay. The rooms are beautiful and stylish in their decor, and the beds plush, guaranteed to provide you with an excellent night's rest after a day spent enjoying the beautiful countryside which is right on your doorstep.

Bank House itself is set right in the middle of Bishops Castle, a wonderful small town, with some excellent pubs and easily accessible walks which will allow you to enjoy the Shropshire hills.

Gerry was a kind and generous host and made sure that everyone had a fantastic time at Bank House. If you are looking for somewhere to stay in the area, look no further, you are guaranteed an excellent stay at Bank House!

I had a great time here. The rooms are lovely, the beds are soft and luxurious, and Gerry is incredibly nice and welcoming. Some fantastic walks and excellent local pubs nearby too. Perfect place for a countryside getaway.

We hired bank house to renew our wedding vows. We hired it for the weekend and had all our friends and family to stay with us. Everybody fell in love with the house, the stylish individually designed bedrooms and the incredible space for the ceremony and party. Gerry could not have been more helpful and was very generous with her time. Everything we needed and so much more. Can't wait to find an excuse to hire it again or to stay there for a romantic night away.

I stayed here for a long weekend as part of a friend's birthday celebrations. The place is amazing! The beds and bedlinen are so comfortable, each room of a group of beds (ours had 3 beds but it can be made as a double) has its own beautiful shower and the communal areas are brilliant, too. The lounge is wonderful, with super-comfy sofas and armchairs and the all-important wood-burning stove to make it snug; the breakfast/dining room is great and the breakfast was fantastic; and finally, the entrance hallway, with its magnificent double staircase (beautifully restored - like all the property) makes a brilliant space in which a group like ours can naturally congregate for a toast or a piece of the excellent home-made cakes which Gerry, the host, provides.
Not to mention that the place is right in the centre of Bishop's Castle, and that, of course, gives access to the most beautiful countryside nearby. The best point: Gerry cannot do enough to make her guests feel welcome!! She wants every visitor / group to have the experience they want, so ask her if you need help!! If she can help, she will!
Definitely Five stars - or more.....
