The heather-clad Long Mynd looks like a long mountain range in miniature, and offers superb walks among canyon-like valleys and high up on the open moor with fabulous views in all directions.
Immaculate villages sit in quiet wooded valleys to the south and east, while the character changes to the west as we look towards wild Wales. Further afield enjoy stone circles, stunning medieval architecture, like the incomparable Stokesay Castle, and the incongruous mountainous terrain of the Stiperstones ridge.
Be inspired by the history of this border country, and the charm of historic towns such as Bishops Castle and Much Wenlock (birthplace of the modern Olympic Games). Discover Iron Age hill forts, fortresses and castles, medieval towns and scenic stream railways.
Stay in the pretty village of Church Stretton and enjoy wonderful views over the village to the dramatic Shropshire Hills beyond.
