The Area

The site is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty.  Head east, to the poplar Stiperstones where you can see the Devil's Chair- some say he still rests here from time to time! Head towards Church Stretton and  you will access the Longmynd. From here you can see the Red Kites in flight, plus spectacular views as far as the eye can see. Or, head west from the site across the road to the Stone Circle (which is on the Welsh border)  where you have more walks with outstanding views, plus an abundance of wildlife as an extra bonus. All of which can be accessed by car as well as on foot. Local events are listed >>HERE<<

                Approximately 10 minutes drive
You can gain access to the Shropshire Way at several locations. One of which is between the Stiperstones and the Longmynd. Or, head south to Bishop's Castle. This small historic market town at the centre of The Marches, where you will find a variety of pubs, cafe's, butchers, newsagents, supermarket and a variety of individual shops. For the family there is a Sports Hall with a swimming pool and other sports for those occasional rainy days. Close to  Bishop's Castle you can also gain access to Offer's Dyke – also popular with walkers.
Fancy your chances at target practice – Minsterley Ranges have the equipment for hire and the expertise to help those with no or little experience. So why not try something new. Lessons can be booked direct.  Also, there is Midland Gliding Club where you can arrange a flight with an instructor in one of their two man gliders. Or if you wish try a lesson or two. Both experiences have to be arranged with the clubs, although normally same day access can be obtained.

                Approximately 25 minutes drive
The site location is convenient for those who wish to explore further afield. The historic town of Shrewsbury is approximately 20 minuets drive. Or if you prefer to leave the car behind, hop on the bus which stops just outside the site, sit back, relax and admire the countryside all the way to Shrewsbury. This means not having to worry about, where to park or having the correct change for the parking meter.  In the other direction there is Ludlow another town of great historic interest and a verity of independent shops. For those who like to learn how things used to be done, Acton Scott  Historic Working Farm is worth a visit, here you can almost travel back in time as you watch traditional skills being used. Don't be put off by the history bit, as children also have a great time here, with the animals and Corny Mouse Club. 
Mentioned above are just a few places on our door step, we have many more. So come on call in and see for yourself  how beautiful Shropshire is and what it has to offer. We feel sure you will be pleasantly surprised.
