The School House B&B in Shropshire

You can relax in comfort at our Shropshire B&B while you discover and enjoy the area. We are in Chapel Lawn just outside Bucknell and close to historic Ludlow.

Chapel Lawn is in the Shropshire Hills AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) so there is plenty of beautiful countryside to explore. Country walks, visiting castles or going to National Trust properties and gardens are just some ideas.

Ludlow is a small friendly town full of historic buildings and independent shops. It is also a town that specialises in good quality local food.

We can help you discover the south of Shropshire and the surrounding area with our vast knowledge of events and places of interest.

We'd love to see you here at our Shropshire B&B soon.


Our Rooms

In The School House we have three spacious rooms.

As well as a large comfy bed made up with quality linens, each room has an en-suite with a large walk-in shower.

You will also find some of those little luxuries that you deserve on your Shropshire break.  Homemade cake and a selection of quality teas and coffee. Fresh milk and local water are in the silent room fridge. Wine glasses are provided.

Each room also has a sofa and a Freesat TV. Fluffy towels, dressing gowns and complimentary toiletries in the bathrooms add that extra touch of luxury for you. Along with scenic views, there is free wi-fi throughout the house.

Locally Sourced Food

Your breakfast will contain as much local produce as we can source, and we ensure that everything is fresh and seasonal. There will be a selection of hot and cold options for you featuring homemade bread and cereals.

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.

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

Dog Friendly B&B

You’re welcome to bring one well-behaved dog with you if you book the Redlake room. The Redlake room is a large room on the ground floor. With this room you have your own private entrance. We can recommend walks either from the house or further away.  We may even see you when we're walking Molly, our young Collie / Lab cross.


About Us

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

We love to get out and enjoy walks and are looking forward to introducing our puppy, Molly, to 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 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.

SAT NAV WARNING: Some sat navs will send you along very narrow roads. These can be avoided if you look at a map. Also avoid Bridgend Lane in Bucknell as this will lead you through a ford.

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.
