We had a fantastic stay at Arden House - the room (Darwin), the breakfast, the location and, above all, the hosts were excellent. Ian and Julie have created what feels like the perfect model for a relaxing weekend stay in the country and nobody could fail to enjoy themselves here. We ate out very well, on Ian's recommendation, at Housmans... More

Just returned after spending two nights at Arden House. We were treated like VIPS from the first phone call to check that all was well before we traveled. Ian, Julie and Joyce treat their guests as friends and by the time you leave you are friends. The Arts and Craft building is beautiful and imposing but the interior is light... More

I stayed at the Arden House during a recent trip to the area. My visit was focused on fell running in the Long Mynd. The house was perfectly located. The owners were very hospitable and flexible - muddy shoes and clothes were no problem. The room was spacious, comfortable, well appointed. Breakfast was well prepared and on time. No fault... More

We would have no hesitation in recommending Arden House, it's more like a boutique hotel than a B&B and well worth a 5 star badge! It's a fantastic property, luxurious, spacious and comfortable rooms all done out to a high specification (we stayed in the Darwin room), amazing breakfast, Ian and the team are extremely welcoming and friendly and nothing...

Beautiful charming guest house, spotless and welcoming. Guest house is approx. 5 minutes walk from the small town of Church Stretton and on the doorstep of some lovely countryside walks and bike rides. Very convenient. Brilliant breakfast. Will return.

We had previously stayed here a couple of times when it was self-catering accommodation and love the beautiful house and the lovely position nestled at the foot of Cardingmill Valley.
