We are staying in the Long Mynd Hotel on the edge of Church Stretton, which is run by Holiday Fellowship. This was built as a hydropathic establishment, but was never very successful because its high position meant it did not have enough water. There are several public rooms for relaxation, and the main lounge has collections of books and board games.

There are extensive grounds, largely wooded with a sculpture trail, and a heated swimming pool. We can recommend a walk in the grounds, but must warn you to make sure you can find your way back.

All of our accommodation is in the main building, and most rooms include en-suite bathrooms. All rooms have tea and coffee making facilities. Television is available in all rooms, and there should be internet access throughout the building.


There is a licensed bar, and HF members get 10% discount on all bar drinks.


We have booked on a half-board basis. Breakfast will be at 0800 and dinner at 1915 each day. There is some choice of menu for dinner, but if you have an allergy, please let Linda know in good time so that your needs can be catered for. On Saturday and Sunday we will be supplied with packed lunches.

Evening Activities

As we will not be the only guests at Church Stretton, HF may organise evening events, such as a quiz. One of our members may also organise something.
