We are amidst some of the best walking country in Britain, yet Shropshire is relatively unknown. All around is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with some of the most beautiful and varied landscapes just waiting to be explored. The long distance “Shropshire Way” almost passes our doorstep.
Have a look at www.shropshirewalking.co.uk for lots of ideas.
We do quite a lot of walking ourselves so we have a good understanding of what you may be looking for. You can be sure that we are specially
geared up to meet your needs.
There is a very smart separate heated drying room for those muddy boots and wet clothes – packed lunches and early breakfasts can be arranged – and we are more than happy to act as transport if we practically can, for instance if embarking on a non-circular route, walking the Shropshire Way, or travelling by train. Public transport is very few and far between in this rural area, but there is an initiative of small shuttle buses specially aimed for walkers at the weekends during the summer.
Look at www.shropshirehillsshuttles.co.uk.
When enquiring about a booking, please don’t be hesitant to ask about anything you may be considering and for any suggestions we may have. We aim to make everything as easy for you as we can.
We also welcome cyclists, and with one or two notable exceptions the roads in Shropshire are quiet and ideal for cycling. There are many miles of National Cycle Network routes along quiet lanes, traffic free trails along old railways and waterways, and mountain bike trails in woods and forests.
Also interestingly here in Brockton we are on one of the recognised Lands End-to-John O’ Groats routes.
As part of our drying room there is a space for overnight cycle storage which has the advantage of being in a heated area and is ideal to dry out wet panniers in addition to waterproofs.
Lots of useful information on cycling in Shropshire can be found on www.shropshirecycling.co.uk
