Craven Arms is an excellent jumping-off point for this part of Shropshire. It's within easy reach of Ludlow, Church Stretton, Bishops Castle, Clun and Much Wenlock. The supermarket - Tuffins - is independent and seems to have got lost on its way to France: is there anything it doesn't sell? The neighbouring towns are charming and are largely preserved from the 18th century and beyond. Walk down the high street of any of them and it feels like being part of a costume drama. Most of the shops in this part of the world are independent. There are remarkably few chains and this adds to the allure. It all feels slightly foreign - and inviting. Stuff to do? Excellent walking! The Long Mynd (above Church Stretton) has a steep climb and staggering views. One of the hidden glories of the UK. Ludlow Market is well worth visiting (as is the town). And there's a huge range of coffee shops and small eateries; craft shops and delis. The Poetry Pharmacy in Bishops Castle (check for opening times in advance) is fabulous: drink coffee and read Byron! It was reviewed by the Guardian and the owner has appeared on Radio 4.
Large village with several food amenities and Shropshire Visitor Centre. However not particularly pretty compared with other villages and really more useful as a base for exploring the more interesting surrounding villages and landmarks.
Ever since the first time I visited this little town I liked it and from time to time I come for a short break. I like the scenery and there are some really nice walks. The people are friendly and welcoming. The market street cafe does a really nice breakfast and the service is A1. Sometimes I go and sit on the bank of the river Onny and my stress just melts away.
The village of Craven Arms is quite a dull place. There is no interesting architecture except the Craven Arms Hotel. That is very welcoming with good food and a sports bar and well worth a visit. There is a museum which I didn't visit and it is near Stokesay Castle which is interesting.
Adequate, lovely old building but needed modernizing and making it more attractive to people staying. We didn't eat breakfast there as their 8.30 - 9.30 was too late for us as we had to be at our event for 9.30. I asked if we could have breakfast a little earlier but no was the answer. So we found a lovely little cafe in the town so ate there every morning.
This is a great location for exploring Shropshire by bike and using the local footpaths. The added bonus is that the accommodations is next to the discovery centre which is a lovely place to have tea and cake after a long day out. The food in the hotel was home cooked and a good quality so we didn't have the need to eat elsewhere.
