EXPLORE

Locally Sourced Food

We do our best to source local produce from Shropshire and to ensure that everything is fresh and seasonal. Our breakfast choices include a variety of hot and cold options and features lots of homemade food.

We can recommend plenty of fabulous eateries just a short drive away with good local food. If you prefer not to eat out, then why not try a ‘bedroom picnic’ – a selection of savoury and sweet goodies for you to enjoy in the comfort of your own room. You’re welcome to bring your own drink and we provide glasses and bottle openers on your welcome tray.

Please let us know when you book if you have any special dietary requirements so that we can source any particular ingredients before your stay.

Dog-Friendly B&B

Our dog-friendly Bed and Breakfast is happy to welcome one well-behaved dog in our ground floor room, Redlake. Redlake is a large room which is over 5m x 5m. The room has its own front door access to the garden and our separate ‘dog run’ area. We can recommend walks either from the door or a short drive away.

About Us

After spending over 30 years working for companies in the IT industry, we made a lifestyle change at the end of 2015 and swapped Surrey for Shropshire.

We love to get out and enjoy walks in the Shropshire Hills. We have embraced the culture of Shropshire, attending some of its many fine festivals whenever we can. In order to make recommendations to guests, of course, we sometimes find ourselves sampling the delicious food in local restaurants!

We look forward to welcoming you to our B&B in Shropshire soon.

How Not to Get Lost

BY CAR: Chapel Lawn is situated between the South Shropshire village of Bucknell and the A488 at New Invention. It is the only hamlet along this road. The best way not to get lost is to have a look at the map and then if you're using sat nav, make sure you key 'School House' into it as well as the postcode (SY7 0BW). The School House B&B is next to the village hall car park, about 50 metres beyond the phone box when approaching from Bucknell.

BY TRAIN: The nearest railway stations are in Bucknell (3 miles) and Knighton (5 miles) - both on the Heart of Wales line. Taxis are available in Knighton but please book in advance.
