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.
