Guests can explore Bishop’s Castle which hosts a number of festivals and live music throughout the year. A walking festival (the second week of June); a stone skimming championships (the last Sunday in July); a carnival (the first Sunday in July); The Offa’s Dyke Path, Wild Edric’s Way, and the Kerry Ridgeway are all within striking distance, the last of these doubling as a cycle route if you’re a peddler rather than a plodder.
Meanwhile, at basecamp, wildlife is nurtured, and the hedgerows are left to grow freely, which pleases the birds that thrive here, and adds to the morning welcome.
