“Home from home in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed 15 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

A wonderful and beautiful place to stay. The flat has everything you need with lovely and comfortable furnishings , the bed is so comfortable you get very good and restful sleep. Ian and Julie are fantastic and will help you in anyway they can. Very close to some lovely walks and impressive hills, shops and pubs/bars only minutes walking distance, we are looking forward to our next visit and would highly recommend Arden House for your next holiday.

“Great Accomodation in Superb Location”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We wanted to have a quiet weekend away in spacious accommodation to re-charge the batteries and Arden House was exactly what we hoped for. The apartment is very comfortable and very well maintained and has everything you need for a great stay. Ian was a good host as well with some good recommendations for walks and food. The actual location next to Cardingmill Valley is first rate and provides superb scenery to match the accommodation. When I am back in Church Streton this is where I will stay

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 29 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We were looking for a comfortable retreat for a weekend in Church Stretton and found Arden House. What a delight! The apartment was so spacious and comfortable and the location just what we wanted. We could walk out to the town and the Long Mynd and fabulous walks straight from the door. We would certainly recommend Arden House and would like to thank Ian and Julie for the opportunity of such great weekend.

“This apartment is well designed, beatifully funrished and well equipped for a weekend walking or a longer holiday”
Reviewed 15 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed in the Makintosh Apartment during our participation in the Longmynd Hike ( 50 miles overnight). The apartment was a perfect base for this event and our hosts Ian and Julie could not have been more supportive and understanding of our needs. We have stayed in a number of apartments in our travels around the UK and the Makintosh is outstanding. The house has been designed in the Arts and Crafts School and the apartments have maintained this theme throughout. It is tastefully furnished and practical in the way it has been equipped. It is situated a short walk from the centre of Church Stretton and has the advanantage of a quiet and peaceful location. Ian and Julie are very knowledgeable about all of the wonderful oportunities for walking, cycling and indeed running locally and the wider range of interesting activities in the area. Their knowledge and friendly enthusasm ensure you make the best use of your time in Shropshire.

“Simply the best - better than all the rest!”
Reviewed 30 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We cannot speak highly enough about our stay at Arden House. The Mackintosh suite was stylish and very comfortable. Our hosts were friendly and very helpful. Church Stretton is an ideal hill walking location with a variety of great walks literally on the doorstep of Arden House - no need to use the car. There are also several excellent restaurants within a short distance. We have already recommended to several friends. We'll be back!

“Excellent rental property”
Reviewed 18 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Mackintosh apartment is a stylish, well presented property finished to a high standard. Although on the edge of Church Stretton it is a short walk into the centre of town which has lots of amenities.
The apartment is well equipped and very comfortable.
There are 28 steps up to the apartment which may not be suitable for everyone.

“Another Fantastic Weekend at Arden House”
Reviewed 17 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We have been staying with Julie and Ian at Arden house for three years now, previously when it was a B&B. This recent stay has been our first since the extensive work they have carried out to turn the property into luxury self catering apartments. And luxurious they are!! As always the welcome from Ian and Julie was warm and friendly, they make us feel we are almost part of the family. We had seen the plans to transform Arden House into luxury apartments but you have to see it to believe how fantastic they are. The kitchens are equipped with high spec equipment and a welcome pack is provided. Even the small items e.g. kitchen foil, cling film have been thought of. The house has lost none of its charm since being adapted, all of the building work both exterior and interior have blended in well with the character of the building. The location couldn’t be better, right at the foot of Cardingmill Valley with wonderful views from the house. Ideal for walking or even just relaxing in the luxury of the apartment. We are taking friends to stay again over the Christmas/New Year Period in the Turret Penthouse Suite, which is amazing, and have also booked another weekend in May next year. Once you have visited you will most certainly want to return. We cant wait to go back. See you at Christmas Ian and Julie.

Wow – thanks for taking the time to post such an outstanding review. We took great care to retain the character of the house, whilst ensuring our guests have every modern convenience and of course, the location is fantastic. It will be great to see you again at Christmas and meet your friends. I can’t recall how many times you have stayed at Arden House but every time has been a pleasure - despite you supporting the opposition! All our very best wishes - Ian & Julie
