Countryfile’s top ten Market towns

Countryfile Magazine has just launched its first ever Awards. Bishops Castle features in its top ten Market towns, chosen by The Lonely Planet guide.  We’ve always loved Bishop’s Castle – its unique breweries & history & great atmosphere.  So of course our brochure features  a cycling and walking holiday which mean that you can earn your pint from The Three Tuns brewery or fabulous puddings at the Castle Hotel.

If you want to cycle there – try our Kerry Ridgeway Cycle tour or if you want to walk; our Offa’s Dyke & Kerry Ridgeway 2 day walk gets out out & about along the best preserved parts of the Offa’s Dyke.

Wonderful architecture next to the Castle Hotel

And if you want to find out what makes Bishops Castle so special, time your break to coincide with Bishop Castles’ – Michaelmas Fair on 17-18th September – its a mind boggling mix of traditional country Fair, Steam Engines parading around the streets and Bhangra music & dance.

Oh yes and vote for Bishops Castle in Countryfile magazine’s poll
