For our family long weekend The Laurels had plenty of different rooms for the ten of us to be all together or be in own space if required. It was well equipped, had large bedrooms, and was centrally located within the delightful hilly village; with all shops, pubs and restaurants within walking distance. Walkers of all capabilities will find plenty of routes direct from the property.
,The accommodation exceeded our expectations. It is a very short walk to town and there are plenty of country footpaths to explore. The enclosed garden is ideal for children and the dog.
Ms Firth, Dorset
,The Laurels is a cosy house with plenty of room for 12 people. The property is convenient and close to the high street and footpaths.
Mrs Jones, Denbighshire
,A wonderful house furnished and equipped to a very high standard reflecting the generosity of spirit of the owner and his team. We will be back!
Mr Lunt, Cheshire
,The house was amazing, we feel very fortunate that the owner let us share it. The dog was delighted with the fully enclosed garden, and we were delighted with the comfort of all the rooms. Our teenage granddaughter loved the games room on the top floor. We had such fun with the table football. Overall we could find no fault with this stunning house, and there was nothing we could think of to improve it. Superb!
,The house offered everything we needed and was spotlessly clean throughout. There were lots of rooms downstairs, so no one was on top of each other. There was a lovely garden and patio, and ample parking. We all loved the character and quirkiness of the building, it was just beautiful, perfect for us. Bishops Castle is a wonderful quirky little town. We would definitely highly recommend this property.
Mrs Mitchell, Cheshire
,A wonderful house, everything was there and everything has been thought of. We had a really warm welcome from the owner and nothing was too much trouble. Would love to go back again. It was a perfect venue.
Mrs Baker, Essex
,The Laurels is a lovely property offering everything needed for big groups of people. It is ideally situated for the amenities of Bishops Castle and short drives from a wide variety of outings in the environs.
Mrs Lillie, Buckinghamshire
,The Laurels is a wonderful quirky property for large groups holidaying together. It has a safe and secure garden and the BBQ makes the garden a useful addition to the property. The location is close to the amenities of Bishops Castle and is a short drive from many other tourist attractions. Thoroughly recommended.
