Trevor, Barnsley, United Kingdom...
All the team were very welcoming and made sure that all aspects of our stay was a pleasant experience, as did the locals who used the bar. The bar and restaurant areas were very pleasant, as were the outside areas; gardens and terrace. The restaurant menu wasn't pretencious, but the food that we had was excellent. Ample off road parking is available. The Gaskell Arms is on the edge of the town giving easy access to the Much Wenlock and the road network. It is ideally located for seeing Shropshire.
Kenneth, Doncaster, United Kingdom...
The hotel was extremely good and we enjoyed our stay. It was friendly, welcoming and comfortable. Everyone was very accomodating and efficient and it felt home from home. The real log fire was the icing on the cake!!
Walled Garden & Terrace
SPACE. And lots of it. All within four long walls. Our Walled Garden is a huge world within a world, offering you something entirely different within the hotel grounds.
The beauty of the Walled Gardens at The Gaskell Arms is beyond compare. There are countless aspects to inspire artists and photographers alike. Whatever the weather, if you're here with your family, it's somewhere safe your kids can run free and wander, discovering the numerous delights within.
The garden has many features to enjoy including an array of beautiful flowers and the well kept lawns which compliments the architecture of the building.
After exploring the garden why not sit back in the terrace over a cup of coffee, a glass of wine or even a started before dinner.
