Magnificent doesn't begin to describe this place. The golden thread that stitches everything together though is the attention to detail of the owners - Ian and Julie - nothing is too much trouble for them. Superb!

Thank you Guy – what a wonderful review. It was lovely to see you both again - the Blues & Roots Festival is a wonderful event and we loved your son’s performance, what a talent! Hope to see you both again next year. All our very best wishes, Ian & Julie More

Arden House is beautiful - big, well-furnished, comfortable rooms with lots of windows. I loved waking to the birds in the morning. Breakfast was delicious, made-to-order each morning. We enjoyed our hosts, Ian and Julie, and our chef, Louisa. It was a lovely home to return to and very hard to leave at the end of our stay.

This is one of the very best B&Bs. Like other reviewers I can't think of any more to say that hasn't already been said. We stayed here for the second time in September with friends who were visiting for the first time. All of us agreed that we would be back. The house has been superbly restored, the bedrooms are...

What can I say that hasn’t already been said about lovely Arden House b/b in Church Stretton? We, 3 generations, stayed there for a few nights at the beginning of this month and we all enjoyed it. The house is beautiful and we were encouraged to relax and make the most of it. Breakfast was a real treat with an... More

We were on a walking holiday based in Church Stretton and selected Arden House simply for its location -- out of the town centre but within walking distance. It was a fabulous decision. The location was perfect. It backs up to Carding Mill Valley, was quiet, except for birdsong, but an easy walk to Church Stretton proper. Our hosts were... More

We had a wonderful couple of days at Arden House. Beautiful room, great breakfast and the most attentive (but not intrusive) hosts. Everything was taken care of, from restaurant recommendations and booking to maps and route guides for walks. A truly blissful weekend

If any further proof is needed that the bed and breakfast sector is where the most wonderful things are being done in British holiday accommodation then look no further than Arden house. On the last of our four nights here (in August 2014) we spent a happy hour or so trying to think of anywhere at all, in this country... More

Special, exceptional, even magical that is Arden House.

An excellent place to stay in Church Stretton, within easy walk of the centre, and an ideal base for visiting the Long Mynd and the Shropshire hills generally. The house is interesting and the room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was delicious.
