“Lovely weekend in the Shropshire hills”
Reviewed 15 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We had a great weekend celebrating my birthday! The Mackintosh apartment was immaculate and Julie and Ian welcoming and informative hosts. We ate well at nearby pubs and enjoyed walks in the locality - all of this helped by the warm sunny weather.

“A perfect place to stay”
Reviewed 26 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Very occasionally you come across a gem of a place to stay and this was one of those rare finds. From the moment of booking to the end of our stay, Ian and Julie were fantastic hosts, taking care to make sure we had everything we needed. They were so knowledgable about the area and provided a lot of useful information on walking and sight seeing. The location of the apartment was ideally placed for exploring the area, being situated at the entrance to Carding Mill Valley. Also within walking distance of Church Stretton with its interesting shops and fine places to eat. The apartment was immaculate and fitted out with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We could not have asked for more. Thank you!

“Fabulous getaway!”
Reviewed 24 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We had a fantastic stay at Arden House! The accommodation was very clean and extremely comfortable, and we received a warm welcome upon arrival. The apartment is conveniently located, with only a short walk into town, where you can find great places to eat and lovely shops to browse. There is plenty of amazing walks nearby, as well. We would definitely stay at Arden House again.

“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.
