This is a re-review as we stayed at Arden House a few years ago when it was a bed and breakfast. It is now self-catering apartments and we were not surprised at all to see that these have been completed to exactly the same wonderfully high standards. We stayed in the Mackintosh apartment, which sleeps 2 with a huge lounge giving beautiful views of the South Shropshire hills. The apartment is superbly well equipped and appointed, making it a perfect, comfortable base from which we have set out walking the hills and the beautiful Carding Mill Valley - the latter being just steps from the apartment. Church Stretton is a pretty little town and, as I am trying to convey, the scenery is stunning. For the quality of the apartments the price here is a total bargain. To complete the deal Ian and Julie, resident hosts of the apartments, are lovely people - unfailingly considerate and ready with all sorts of tips for guests. We will return again soon!
