Nestled within the Shropshire Hills, those travelling through Church Stretton might be familiar with the passing glimpse of Longmynd House.

Built in 1900, this Church Stretton landmark opened as The Hydropathic Hotel in July 1901, later, it was renamed the Longmynd Hotel and in the 1940s it became the headquarters of St Dunstan’s, a charity for blinded ex-service personnel.

Now, the hotel is operated by HF Holidays, a specialist walking tour operator, who have just announced the completion of an extensive £2m refurbishment.

The company says the renovation has transformed the external and internal of Longmynd House to create "a charming and comfortable base for guests to stay when they are exploring the surrounding diverse landscape" of the Shropshire Hills.
