Sadly Magnolia B&B has closed while Geoff and Elizabeth take a well earned retirement. I shall miss staying there - the perfect B&B. Thank you both for your excellent hospitality in the past. I was disappointed to find you'd closed when I tried to book with you recently, but wish you all the best for the future. Maureen

We are repeat visitors to Magnolia and it has to be the best hotel/B & B we've stayed in - anywhere. It is totally in keeping with Bishops Castle and Shropshire in general, relaxing, picturesque, friendly, quiet (well, except for a certain chaffinch that likes to get up early and sing from dawn till dusk!). Geoff and Elizabeth make you...

This was my 3rd stay at Magnolia and my husband's 2nd and we had an absolutely brilliant time as usual. This is a lovely B&B and just seems to get better each time. From the moment we arrived we felt right at home, our room was The Wintles and we hadn't stayed in this room before-it is the blue room...

I have always wanted to spend some time in Shropshire to walk and explore and as a surprise for my 50th birthday, I was treated to a two night stay in Magnolia. I was expecting just an ordinary B&B, which would be a luxury for me in itself, but Magnolia was so much more. An extremely warm welcome from Geoff...

We stayed in three rooms for a long weekend for a family reunion. We found the welcome, the rooms, the atmosphere and the facilities to be first rate. Breakfast was fabulous, and nothing was too much trouble. The owners were absolutely lovely and very much allowed us to take over their beautiful home with our family. If we stay in...

We spent a week here walking in the surrounding countryside. Perfect terrain for people in their 60's - hills not too lung-busting but the views are lovely. The Magnolia is top class, as are Elizabeth and Geoff. Friendly, welcoming and informative. The bedrooms are most comfortable, clean and stylish. Breakfast is super - local produce, well cooked. We are still...

Having read previous reviews what can be said that hasn't all ready been covered. The reviews speak volumes about Magnolia House and hosts Elizabeth and Geoff are amazing. It's little wonder they top the list as the best. Every thing from cake on arrival,magnificent breakfasts, rooms with lots of added luxurious extras all added up to be simply the best...

“All the rooms (there are three) are pretty much identical. While I'm sure Geoff and Elizabeth welcome families with young children, it is probably more suited to adults and older children.”
