About the neighbourhood
Arden House is only a short level walk from the centre of Church Stretton, which has some wonderful restaurants and bistros featuring, European, Thai and India cuisine. The quaint cafes are great for afternoon tea and we have a fantastic award winning deli. The town is surrounded by the most outstanding selection of country pubs offering everything from fine dining to gastro pub grub. The renowned Carding Mill Valley and the Long Mynd, owned and looked after by the National Trust, is outside our front gate – offering woodlands walks, challenging hill climbs or gentle rambles with a country pub lunch along the way – Church Stretton is one of those destinations that once discovered, people return to time and time again.
How to get there
Directions On reaching the traffic lights at Church Stretton, turn towards the town centre, travel along Sandford Avenue to the junction, turn right into the B5477 Shrewsbury Road, then take the first turn on the left into Carding Mill Valley and you will see Arden House on the bank, to the right, at the foot of the Trevor Hill road. BY RAIL Church Stretton has a railway station, services run to and from Shrewsbury or Newport. Although the station is only a short walk from Arden House, to save our guests struggling with their luggage, we can arrange collection from the station.
