Standing at the gateway to Carding Mill Valley, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – Arden House is a haven in the hills offering three luxury holiday apartments. Sleeping from two to six guests, the well-appointed apartments retain the unique character and quality of this outstanding Arts & Crafts country house.
Standing in an elevated position with over an acre of hillside garden filled with unusual trees, Arden House is full of character and has some truly distinctive features. Built by the former Major of Shrewsbury and renowned business man, Benjamin Blower in 1903, the craftsmanship epitomises the Arts & Crafts style and offers a unique experience.
With far reaching views across the surrounding Shropshire Hills, the location is second to none, and the house is only a short level walk from the centre of the market town of Church Stretton. With ample private parking – Arden House is ideally situated for discovering the delights of Shropshire with the historic towns of Shrewsbury, Ironbridge, Much Wenlock and the renowned food mecca of Ludlow all just 30 minutes away by car or even less by train.
All apartments are available for a minimum stay of two nights. Due to the design of the house and gardens, we do not permit dogs. Free WIFI with fast broadband connection is available in all apartments.
The Arts and Crafts Movement was an innovative group of artists, writers and designers with a philosophy based on traditional values, high standards and attention to detail. We share these values and offer our guests a very warm welcome and are on-hand, if required, to offer advice on exploring the Shropshire Hills, local restaurants or finding those ‘hidden gems’.
Our aim is to make your visit as relaxing as possible and we will be delighted to offer help and advice with planning walks or mountain bike routes, places to visit, restaurant recommendations and bookings. If you have something to celebrate we can help plan an occasion to remember. From golfing to gliding and bike hire to wild swimming – we are happy to help!
We look forward to welcoming you to our home.
