Lovely location right in the heart of Ledbury. Easy to miss the entrance and drive way to car park narrow. Care required. Once navigated, you find each accommodation has its own parking space in the courtyard. Accommodation was spacious with a mixture of modern and traditional fittings. Plenty of draw space for up to a weeks stay (we were there for 4 nights). Kitchen well equipped and the shower room clean fitted with both a traditional showerhead and a rain shower head. Easy to use. The couple who managed it welcomed us and we're happy to talk and assist (though didn't need to) whenever we met then. Overall a relaxing and pleasurable stay.
We had a great stay for 3 nights in the cottage. Very spacious with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. Lovely welcome of a fruit cake on arrival that was delicious and made locally. Hot water was plentiful and waterfall shower was great. Bed was very comfy, and we were not disturbed by road traffic noise during the night. Lots of choice of restaurants and bars in the town - all following covid safety procedures We cycled to the Weston’s cider mill and walked to Eastnor Castle, so didn’t use our car while we were there Would thoroughly recommend
A lovely apartment in a great location. Would definitely recommend.
Expect a tasteful and roomy apartment in a characterful renovation together with easy access to amenities- a great place to base yourselves to explore the Malvern Hills and surrounding towns
As a last minute booking with not much choice given the ongoing Coranavirus pandemic, we took a punt on Bishops, Ledbury and we are so glad that we did! Set just back from the main High Street in Ledbury this lovely apartment had everything we needed for our staycation. Decorated to a high standard, it really does have a cosy feel to it and the little attention to detail such as welcome cake, washing up liquid, washing powder, salt & pepper etc. were very much appreciated. There is a little bit of traffic noise in the bedroom but not enough to prevent us getting a good night sleep. We took our 8 month old son with us and there was plenty of room in the bedroom for a travel cot and the high-chair provided was brilliant. The on-site managers (who live next door) were very friendly and only too happy to help with anything. The apartment is ideally situated - less than 2 minute walk and you are on the high street, 10 minutes and you can be at Easton Castle and the Malvern Hills. We enjoyed our stay so much, that we are already looking forward to returning.
Located in the centre of historic Ledbury, Bishop’s is the perfect base for exploring Ledbury - increasingly popular for its poetry and food festivals - and the wider areas of Herefordshire, the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean. Within a minute’s walk of Ledbury’s cobbled medieval streets and famous timber-framed buildings, notably the 17th-Century, Grade 1 listed Market Hall which is still the site of a twice-weekly market on Tuesday and Saturday. This thriving market town has plenty of tea rooms, coffee shops and restaurants to choose from (should guests want a break from self-catering), plus antique shops, craft shops, and art galleries.
Ledbury is ideally situated to explore some of the UK’s most stunning natural areas, including the Cotswolds, the Wye Valley and Symonds Yat, the Malvern Hills, the Forest of Dean and the Black Mountains. All these areas provide the perfect opportunity to get outside and walk, run, cycle, kayak, fish, play golf or go climbing.
