The Gaskell Arms, previously a 17th century coach house, is delightfully situated on the edge of the medieval town of Much Wenlock, near Ironbridge, Shropshire.

Now a family owned hotel and restaurant, the Gaskell Arms offers hotel accommodation (rated 3* by the AA) with 14 rooms in total, including the Mews and Coach House.

Whilst retaining all the charms of our historic past, including the original oak beams, the Gaskell Arms features all the modern conveniences and comforts to make your visit as enjoyable as possible – starting with the welcoming warmth of a wood burner to greet you in the winter through to our modern and spacious accommodations.

Based in the heart of Shropshire, the hotel is the ideal location for tourists looking to explore the county, as well as business travellers – with easy transport links from the Midlands via the M5/M6/M54, and Birmingham Airport.

If you are looking for a location to hold a business meeting or conference away from the office, the Gaskell Arms has a number of function rooms which are ideal for conferences or meetings with up to 60 people. Fully equipped with all the essential equipment it offers a quiet location that allows you to focus on the important task of business.

The function rooms are also the perfect place for special occasions or family events including birthdays, anniversaries, funeral wakes and even wedding parties.
