Activities in South Shropshire near to Shuttocks Wood B&B.


South Shropshire is ideal walking, cycling and riding country with varied terrain to suit all levels of ability. Cycle hire can be arranged locally. For those wanting to avoid some of the uphill then there is a shuttle bus in summer to get you to the top of the local hills.

Nearby Walcott stables offer lessons and hacks.

Trout and coarse fishing is available at White Grit, about ten miles away.

Stemme S10V There is very active hang gliding, paragliding and soaring on the Long Mynd , visible from the house. Howard would be happy to arrange some motor gliding weather permitting. Alternatively for those wanting to see the world from a completely different angle, how about a bit of Pitts Special action with Paul.

The Long Mynd is popular with birdwatchers and recently red kites have reappeared. On good soaring days close up action can be enjoyed with soaring birds from a glider -- Howard, like most glider pilots, has seen lots of Buzzards and other soaring birds in the same thermal only yards away, so for a change you could try birding aloft.

The area is popular for balloon flights -- views of the Shropshire countryside are even better than from ground level. Launching takes place at Linley Hall, about one mile away and also at Bishops Castle.

Many artists visit the area and local painter Diane "Bird" Williams has her studio next door at Quarry Lodge.
 

Locally there are two pubs within a mile or so, The Crown and The Inn on the Green, offering bar and restaurant meals. The Bridges at Ratlinghope is about two and a half miles away offering Three Tuns beers and food. Bishops Castle, a medieval town hosting numerous annual festivals, is four miles away offering a selection of shops, two museums, public houses, two micro breweries, a tennis club, a sports centre and a one handed clock. 

Ludlow , rated by John Betjeman as the finest town in England and a paradise for foodies is within sixteen miles. Shrewsbury is about sixteen miles away in the opposite direction. The local area offers a wealth of historic architecture and interesting places to visit

The Onny valley is world famous for geology and fossils. Shropshire has some of the oldest rocks in Britain dating from the Pre-Cambrian epoch. An ancient copper mine is believed to have been worked in Shuttocks wood.

More recently, Clive of India used to live nearby in Walcot Hall which is occasionally open for visitors.
