Horses Welcome Establishment

Friendly and relaxed four star B&B on a working livestock farm dating back to the 1700s. Located on the Shropshire/Wales border, near the small market town of Bishops Castle, in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. We are fortunate to be close to an extensive network of bridleways that include the Jack Mytton Way, the Kerry Ridgeway and the new Blue Remembered Hills bridleway, which comes right through our farmyard. Our location allows you to ride vast open hills, quiet country lanes and secluded forest and woodland trails. Our many and varied riding options have something for everyone.

Riding opportunities

Explore an extensive network of well signposted bridleways that include the Jack Mytton Way, the Kerry Ridgeway and the Blue Remembered Hills bridleway. We are also close to the Long Mynd that gives you access to Ride UK routes and an endless choice of fantastic bridleways to explore. We can give you all the help and advice you need to plan routes. We also provide good linking routes to other horse accommodation providers.


From Shrewsbury and the A5, take the 488 to Bishops Castle (approx 22 miles). On reaching the second town sign, turn right, go past the school and just after the church keep to the left onto Kerry Lane. Do not go up into the town. After 250 yards turn left onto Woodbatch road, go straight on and follow the road round to the right where it turns into a single track road. Follow this road for 1.5 miles right to the very end.
