Special, exceptional, even magical that is Arden House. The fact that we have stayed here 4 times is testament to the house and Ian, Julie and Joyce (not forgetting the new weekday breakfast expert - sorry forgotten your name) as hosts. Perfect base for all activities - cycling , walking, food. What more could anyone ever need. We will be... More

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.

We have always loved holidaying in Shropshire but have stayed in chain hotels before. What a wonderful new experience we had at Arden House. We had been drawn to this B&B by the photographs of the fantastic architecture. This is only one part of the Arden House experience.

Before we'd left, we'd already decided that we had to come back. Ian couldn't have been more helpful, the breakfasts are superb, the rooms spotless, and a great location. We walked straight from the house up the Long Mynd. We will be back.
