Fiona Thank you, and very humbled by your comments. We spent so much time,energy and planning into developing the suites and when guests see the detail it is so rewarding to us both. Its also very pleasing to be seen as good hosts and again very much appreciated. We do have a real love for Arden House and we enjoy others being able to share. As for selling Church Stretton, that,s easy as the hills and the community do it for us. Look forward to seeing you again. Thank You Ian & Julie

Darwin apartment - bedroom can be taken as super king or twin beds
Hello Helen Our Penthouse suite sleeps six. Bedroom one is a twin as is bedroom three albeit two adult bunks beds, bedroom two is a king size that will not split. To add to this our Darwin suite is also a twin. Hence you would need to book both the penthouse and Darwin and it would leave one couple sharing a king size bed. Hope this helps Ian
