We stayed in the Darwin apartment for 3 nights whilst visiting for a friends wedding. I could not fault Arden House. Ian and Julie have created something special. The apartment was spotlessly clean with exceptional attention to detail. The surrounding area is beautiful, if you like the outdoors then you would not be disappointed by the location.

Lovely accommodation for two people in a perfect spot for exploring Church Stretton and all the outdoors offers. Everything is very tastefully presented. Well equipped kitchen and comfortable lounge.

Spotlessly clean, beautifully presented, extremely well-equipped and in a wonderful location. Ian could not have been more helpful either before booking or on arrival (even arranging sunshine and blue skies;-)! All six of us were delighted with the place, the service and the stay, enjoying breakfast together on the roof, a great day out walking and two good night's sleep.
