We are delighted to welcome The Castle Hotel, Bishops Castle in Shropshire to our dog friendly hotel directory. Hamish visited many years ago and thoroughly enjoyed the walks in this beautiful area close to the border with Wales and the Shropshire hills. Check our dog friendly walks directory (Shropshire and Powys) for a few examples of walks your dogs should enjoy (as Hamish did – bless him).
Dogs are very welcome throughout the hotel & public areas and in all hotel bedrooms. There’s a large enclosed garden with small wooded area for you to exercise your pet and the hotel is away from busy roads so you can relax and enjoy your holiday together.
There are lots of great walks in the surrounding fields and hills, and maps and walking guides are available in reception.
If your pet has special dietary requirements The Castle will be only too pleased to help. They try to have as few rules as possible for our doggy guests, but as a courtesy to other humans we do have requests and other useful information : Pets are allowed in the garden, but please clean up any mess left behind. Waste bags are available from behind reception. Please note that there is a small but deep pond in the garden which pets are not allowed in.
Pet feeding trays & food & water bowls are available, please ask at reception. Refrigerated space is available for storage of pet food. There is a dedicated bin for pet waste, please ask at reception for details. Pet leads, specific pet towels and torches/nightlights are also available upon request.
A variety of walks suitable for pets starting from the hotel front door are available in front of reception along with information on pet friendly attractions are available at the information point in front of the reception, please ask a member off staff to recommend pet friendly walks.
We allow well behaved pets to sit with their owners throughout the day including meal service in our large “back” bar. Unfortunately pets are not allowed in the dining/breakfast room.
