We felt very much at home in the Turrent penthouse. It was clean, had everyting we needed and very nice hosts. We loved it and we definitely want to come back. Deze accommodatie is zeer aan te bevelen. Mooi, schoon, van alle gemakken voorzien en aan de voet van het national trust wandelgebied Long Mynd

The accommodation was beautifully presented to a very high standard. Everything was very well thought through. We received a lovely welcome from Ian, and Joyce the next day. Lovely personal touches made the trip feel even more special. We had the Turret and The Mackintosh suites for our party and loved the place so much we will certainly be back... More

We stayed in the Turret. Great views from the roof. We particularly loved the sofa! The conversion to self-catering has been nicely done - we liked the entrance across the bridge. A perfect location for many walks, straight from the door or further afield. A four-day visit was not long enough!

We stayed in the Turret Penthouse. It was fabulous. Rooms are very comfortable. Decorated to a high standard. No expense spared. Great to sit on the turret and enjoy the views. Well equipped living space. Hosts very welcoming. Short walk into town for some excellent eating places

We stayed four nights from 20th to 24th September in the Darwin suite at this superb establishment in Church Stretton, in the heart of the Shropshire Hills. We had read all the previous reviews and were certainly not disappointed! The suite is extremely well appointed, the soft furnishings all excellent quality, and everything you could possibly need was provided (well... More

Stayed in the beautiful Penthouse for a mid week break, beautiful location, so close to some fantastic walks, while also being very close to the small town, with a choice of shops pubs and restaurants. Arden house is perfect so peaceful would highly recommended this for a family or a group of friends.

Beautiful, comfortable, spotless accommodation - on the doorstep of Carding Mill Valley and other walks within AONB. Mackintosh Apartment was faultless and would recommend. Enjoyed walks on to the Long Mynd, Caer Caradoc and the Lawley.

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!

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.
