Gay Lesbian Friendly Country House Luxurious Hotel and Restaurant Shropshire
Pen-y-Dyffryn Gay Lesbian Friendly Luxury Country House Hotel, Rhydycroesau, Oswestry, Shropshire Welsh Borders

 This beautiful hotel in the Shropshire and Wales border hills is a supremely peaceful country house providing the perfect retreat to
escape from the madding crowd and enjoy the stunning Welsh border countryside. Set in five acres of grounds with no passing traffic,
this silver-stone former rectory exudes a magical calm. There is a selection of gorgeous bedrooms where private patios, double jacuzzis,
spa baths and stunning views abound. Dining in the elegant restaurant, where huge south-facing sash windows frame the ever-changing
and beautiful views, is  central to the whole enchanting Pen-y-Dyffryn experience and the food is sensational, as you would expect from a restaurant with two AA Rosettes. Miles and Audrey together with their loyal and friendly team of staff have successfully captured the
rare combination of unobtrusive hospitality, luxury, and high standards of service and
accommodation that guarantee that “away from it all” feeling. It is  little wonder that together they have more awards for hospitality and food than you can shake a stick at. Why? Quite simply because this is a rare and very special place for only the luckiest people to discover. What a fabulous relaxing friendly stay with superb food.

Gay Lesbian Friendly Coaching Inn, Hotel, Restaurant, Bars and Gardens, Bishops Castle, Shropshire, Welsh Borders
The Castle Gay Lesbian Friendly Hotel, Restaurant, Bars and Gardens, Bishops Castle, Shropshire, Welsh Borders

From its prominent position The Castle Hotel sits majestically gazing out across one of the most charming and unspoilt market towns in the country to the surrounding Shropshire Hills and countryside. This beautiful eighteenth century coaching inn has everything going for it: lovely bedrooms, suburb food, panoramic views, fabulous gardens and no passing traffic. The Castle Hotel was built on the site of the original Castle by Lord Carnarvon in 1719 with, it is believed, stone from the castle ruins, and some remains of the original castle walls dating back to 1087 can still been seen today as they form part of the boundary to the hotel's beautiful gardens. The Castle Hotel has 3 bars with roaring log fires in the colder seasons and an amazing oak panelled dining room. Head chef Stuart and his enthusiastic brigade work their magic with fine locally sourced produce creating fabulous modern pub food. The Castle Hotel has 10 charming en-suite bedrooms each full of character, well equipped and all enjoy lovely views of either the town and the surrounding hills or the delightful gardens. As well as being a handsome historic building in a stunning position surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in Shropshire for us it is the friendly welcoming atmosphere that abounds throughout this place promoted by the very special owners Henry & Bex together with their friendly team of staff (for whom it would appear nothing is to much trouble for their guests) that makes The Castle Hotel so very special. Good old fashioned service with a smile what a delight. No wonder that The Castle Hotel has been enthralling all who visit for over 200 years. How could you not want to stay a while?

Gay Lesbian Friendly Hotel, Restaurant and Bar, Ross on Wye, Herefordshire, Welsh Borders
The Kings Head Hotel, Gay Lesbian Friendly Restaurant and Bar, High Street, Ross on Wye, Herefordshire, Welsh Borders

Market towns in Herefordshire have an enthralling and timeless atmosphere, and Ross-on-Wye is no exception. The Kings Head has been providing the weary traveller with refreshment and accommodation since the 14th century and evokes memories of warming glasses of port
and brandy with friendly conversation, next to crackling log fires after a fabulous meal, or chilled cider on hot lazy summer afternoons aside the meandering River Wye. The Kings Head Hotel (Grade II listed building) has open fireplaces and a wealth of oak beams. Reputedly a tunnel runs from the cellar past the 12th century well to the old Saracens Head Inn. Occasionally there have been reports of ghosts and the clatter of horses from time past. The Kings Head provides fabulous accommodation with various styles of en-suite bedrooms including a romantic four-poster. All of the bedrooms are beautifully presented and come equipped with generous hospitality tray, direct dial telephone, flat-screen Freeview TV and the larger superior bedrooms have DAB I-pod docking radio. Free Wi-Fi access coverage extends to most of the hotel. The Kings Head provides two places to eat: a conservatory restaurant and a cosy restaurant. Their award-winning Chef uses fresh local market ingredients and he produces some seriously good food, with fresh fish and game being a house speciality. This hostelry provides fabulous accommodation and incredibly good, imaginative food served in an atmosphere that only a period hotel of this standing can provide, together with a friendly and inviting ambience that is so welcoming. Sat in one of the most ancient and pretty streets in Ross, which is a perfect for exploring the Wye Valley, Brecon Beacons and the beautiful Welsh Border Countryside, and just perfect for horseracing at Chepstow. Fabulous.

Gay Lesbian Friendly Country Pub, Inn, Bed & Breakfast and Restaurant, Ross on Wye, Herefordshire, Welsh Borders
The Farmers Boy Gay Lesbian Friendly Pub, Ross Road, Longhope, Ross on Wye, Herefordshire, Welsh Borders

We were made up to chance upon the Farmers Boy Inn at Longhope one lunchtime in October, all four of us being in desperate need of a “livener” and something to eat following the hectic party we had attended the previous evening in Cheltenham. Justin who doesn’t drink alcohol was our driver as usual. We were greeted with a crackling log fire and a friendly welcome from Phil (who we later found out owns and runs The Farmers Boy aided by his energetic and friendly young team of staff) who served us our drinks and took our food order. The menu is a treat with good old English favourites together with a comprehensive and an imaginative selection on the á la carte menu. We all chose their famous
2 in 1 Pie (
half steak & Guinness and half cauliflower cheese) which was simply to die for. After our meal and a few more drinks we asked Phil
 if the Farmers Boy provided accommodation and without any hesitation we were shown their guest bedrooms which are located in a newly built annexe behind the inn. The bedrooms are all en-suite, beautifully presented and well equipped. It was nearly 5pm when we reluctantly had to leave this fabulously friendly and beautiful inn. There is something more here than the exposed beams, log fires, exceptionally good food and superb accommodation: it is quite simply the wonderful friendly greeting, atmosphere and the gentle Irish humour from a very special landlord and his friendly team of staff.
The only downside at The Farmers Boy was dragging ourselves away for our return journey to Wales and work.
