The School House B&B

You can relax in comfort in the en-suite rooms of our Shropshire B&B while you explore and enjoy the area. We are in the Shropshire Hills, close to historic Ludlow.

Each en-suite room has a super-king or king-size bed. In your room you will also find a sofa, tv and silent fridge. All the rooms have their own unique features. Caradoc has a deep double-ended bath, vaulted ceiling and feature windows. Brineddin has its own cosy private lounge and Redlake is a large ground floor dog-friendly room with its own private entrance.

We'd love to see you here in Shropshire soon.


Things To Do

We can help you discover the south of Shropshire and the surrounding area. As well as the large selection of leaflets in our dining room you can browse over the walking & cycling routes in the map room. We have a vast knowledge of events and places of interest and are happy to tell you about them.

Medieval Ludlow with its markets, independent shops and fine castle is close by. The villages of Clun, Bishop's Castle and Church Stretton are a short drive away.

You can visit historic castles and gardens such as Croft Castle, Stokesay Castle and Berrington Hall.

For more ideas of things to do see our Explore page.


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 are 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 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.
