Two bathrooms: the upstairs bathroom has a bath, basin and lavatory; the downstairs bathroom has a shower, lavatory and a basin, and also a washer/dryer for clothes. The house is at the end of a terrace and backs onto a mews courtyard (not suitable for ball games), facing an old stone stables (used as a storeroom, locked and not safe for children), and other outbuildings. Our 'garden/field' (very suitable for ball games, about 10 yards by 50 yards, surrounded by hedges) is about 50 yards down a footpath past the house. Heating is by night storage heaters and by electric heaters as well as by the wood-burning stove. The water is heated by off-peak electricity (a boost is available during the day). There is a payphone in the house. It is factory set to a minimum of 20p per call, and you may prefer to use your mobile. There is a broadband wireless system in the house which you are free to use. This is our own holiday home, and furnishings are in keeping with a comfortable (rather than a smart) holiday home. The house is best with only 8 visitors, though it can sleep up to 9. Due to relatively steep stairs and steps down to the kitchen/dining room, the house is not suitable for disabled people, although 'active elderly' will have little problem.More

This was our first time in Bishop's castle and we were not disappointed. The photos of the house did not do it justice. It was well stocked with logs for the wood burner and the whole family were well catered for in terms of space...More

Thank you for your review. You are right about the pictures on the website. They are now a few years old and the house has been further improved (as have camera techniques!) We plan to up-date the pictures when we have a chance. Nick

An spacious house right in the centre of town, but still in a peaceful position. Very homely with a "lived in" feel. However, well equipped and great for a large group. If you are looking for contemporary, don't go here, but if you are looking...More

A fantastic holiday cottage, very comfortable, quiet, roomy, well equipped and full of history and character. We all loved it. The garden area was particularly popular with the children. The group had 4 adults and four children in it and we all fitted very comfortably....More

About the neighbourhood
Bailey End is situated in Bishops Castle, a very small, picturesque market town in the Shropshire hills, 4 miles from the Welsh border. Although a car is advised, it is not necessary. You can travel by train to Craven Arms, about 17 km away, and take a taxi to the house. Once there, there is no need to travel beyond Bishops Castle. Although it is smaller than many villages, Bishops Castle provides all you need for a long or a short stay. It has a post office, bank, butcher, chemist, grocer, delicatessen, somewhere to buy clothes and walking equipment, second hand bookshops, and antique shops. It also has several places to eat, and good pubs, including two which brew their own beer, and most of which also do meals. There is no main road running through the town so it is quiet, and safe ...
