Walking

The local area offers countless walking opportunities.  Listed here just a few ideas.

The Jack Mytton Way is a long distance bridle way through Shropshire.  The path runs to less than a mile from the lodge.   Comprising over 100 miles of rural bridle ways and quiet country lanes, this trail takes you through some of the county's most beautiful and un spoilt  countryside.  See the Shropshire Council website for more information.

The river Severn footpaths follow the course of both the river and the railway. These can be used to combine the journey on foot with the train.

Cleobury Mortimer is a historic market town nearby .  The town’s footpath association publishes a range of leaflets which provide information and clear maps for many walks ranging from easy, short strolls to longer, energetic walks.  Their website is well worth a visit.

Wenlock Edge is an 18 mile limestone escarpment.  Visit the National Trust website for further information.  www.nationaltrust.org.uk/wenlock-edge  An early walk could be followed by a visit to the picturesque town of Much Wenlock.

The Shropshire Way runs in a large loop for 297 miles in the interior of the county.  Routes take in all the best parts including Church Stretton, The Long Mynd and the Clee hills.

There are many options for walking from the doorstep.  Find details of some local walking in our welcome pack.


Cycling

National cycle route 45 which locally runs from Bridgnorth to Bewdley is 2.5 miles away at it’s closest point at Highley.  Why not combine the cycle route with the Severn Valley Railway (bikes are carried free) to create a superb circular route for a day out.  See sustrans.org.uk for all you need to know about the National Cycle Routes.

For mountain bike enthusiasts there are numerous opportunities at the Wyre Forest National Nature Reserve where you will find challenging mountain bike trails within the forest.  Try out the Blue cycle trail.
