    It was perfect, very comfortable, very well equipped and spotlessly clean. The owners were very friendly and helpful with suggestions of recommended walks and places to eat and had left a very nice welcome pack with a delicious cake, juice and milk.

  • "We first stayed here several years ago and had enjoyed it so much that we chose it for a second visit without hesitation."

    The Gallery is a perfect place for two people. It is well appointed and the kitchen in particular has obviously been equipped by someone who has an intimate knowledge of cooking! What makes the accommodation even better, are the extra little touches - the tasteful welcome pack, the provision of flannels, soap, shampoo and plenty of toilet rolls in the bathroom and a hairdryer (with a plug point next to the mirror)! The only downside for us, was that there were two flights of steps to carry things up and down. Not a problem for most but for those of advancing years, it was more of a chore.

  • "A beautifully converted apartment, with bags of character, and a lot more space than many."

    The owners told us it was done 5 years ago but it's still pretty immaculate and could have been brand new. Set in a quiet small village with walks to Wenlock Edge starting from the doorstep and the rest of the Shropshire Hills short drives. If one was being really fussy, one could note that the WiFi was a bit slow, and the freezer is in the utility room downstairs not the apartment itself. But it would be churlish to let those distract from the peaceful calm and excellent fitting out and cleanliness of this place. We are very pleased we chose it.

There is also a separate utility room for washing and drying and a freezer with 2 drawers allocated to each of the 2 apartments. Really lovely building, huge comfortable sofas, powerful hot shower. Had a lovely walk from the door to Flounders Folly on Wenlock edge and a great base for visiting Ludlow, Church Stretton & the Shropshire hills. Would thoroughly recommend just for the homemade welcome brownies

  • "Our stay at The Gallery was absolutely delightful."

    We received a warm welcome from Pat and Gary, who took the time to show us how everything worked and let us know where they were if we needed anything. There was also homemade cake, teabags, coffee and milk waiting for us. The accommodation was absolutely beautiful: immaculately clean, bigger than it had appeared in photos and a gorgeous blend of modern and traditional. The kitchen and bathroom equipment seemed very new and of a very good quality. The kitchen was well stocked with high quality pots, pans and pretty much everything else you could need! The information booklet was very handy, and I felt like Pat and Gary had taken the time to think of everything a guest could want or need and cater to it. This stay was excellent value for money. The Gallery has a lovely atmosphere, and the surrounding countryside is beautiful. This really is the ideal place to get away for total relaxation and I cannot recommend it highly enough. As for Sykes, the site was very easy to use and clear about what you could expect from where you were staying. The app is also a great feature!

  • "We LOVED staying at the Gallery."

    Upon our arrival we were completely blown away with the beauty of the property, and the location. It is even more lovely than the pictures. The property itself is tucked down a little country lane with some beautiful heritage properties around it. I would say it is the perfect place if you are looking to get away from it all. Craven Arms itself does not have much to offer, but it does have some beautiful, proper country walks and also a really nice Italian Restaurant (The White House) We had a car so we spent a couple of days exploring the surrounding areas and then just had a lazy day in. We have super fast paced lives, so switching off for us can be difficult… but it is fair to say we have come home feeling completely rested and rejuvenated. The Gallery was so cozy and homely, we just felt like time had stopped. Gary and Pat the owners are lovely!!! They made us feel so welcome and even left home made cake on the side for when we arrived. It went down very nicely with a cup of tea after a long drive. If we had to be REALLY picky and give a negative… the only thing we would say was the master bedroom mattress was a little too hard for our liking. But, we still slept like babies. Overall… We highly recommend this property!
