I was expecting this 17th Century Coaching House to be delightful....and it didn't disappoint! The rooms were excellently appointed....there was nothing left without thought! LOTS of thought has gone into what the travellers needs/wants and where they might need/want it! For example...being female and needing a hairdryer it was good to not only find one but,,,find one near a plug... More

Lovely stay at the Gaskell Arms, clean and comfortable room, plenty of tea/coffee and biscuits in room, nice clean towels changed regularly and made to feel welcome. Good breakfast available until 9.00am - lovely beer garden, for a relaxing drink after a busy day. Good location for visiting the Gorge Museums, which were excellent. Preferred to eat in Much Wenlock... More

There are many things to like about Much Wenlock. It was founded in 680 AD, it was the birthplace of the Olympic Games (organised by Dr William P. Brookes), and it is home to the Gaskell Arms. Me and my family stayed there on the 29/07/2014, and it was wonderful. Here's a quick summary of our stay: Good Points: -... More

This is the third time I've stayed at the Gaskell Arms, during the Festival at the Edge storytelling festival in Wenlock. As ever, it's a very welcoming place. All the staff were friendly, and interested in the festival - which always helps! The bedroom I was in this time was overlooking the main road, but had additional double-glazing, so wasn't... More

This is our third stay. Each June we visit Bridgenorth, a few minutes drive away, and find the large car park ideal for sorting horticultural things for our annual show. We have now decided to stay in one of the three mews,more expensive,but worth the extra IMO.for the last two trips. Accomodation costs have remained at the same price since... More

10 of us stayed for 2 nights on a walking weekend. The staff were fantastic: offered extra cooked breakfast items; nothing was too much trouble. The cooked breakfasts were brilliant - all locally sourced produce. And plenty of it. The 5 rooms we used were 'variable'. A couple of dodgy showers, a non-working telly, and a broken kettle. But minor... More

Staff good from start to finish. £120 for a mews room. Was very dated and so cold we didn't take our usual shower before we wnt out. Having said that slept very well, bed was comfy and nice and peaceful. Didn't bother getting up for the offered continental breakfast, way too early for a bit of cheese and ham. All... More

We were staying in the Fox Inn over the road in April. The weather was lovely but the Fox and other pubs in the village had only beer gardens that were little more than concrete bin storage areas or carparks. The Gaskell Arms though has a huge rear garden which is very well kept. Although the pub is on a... More
