There is a multitude of things to do here both onsite and in the local area.
We are right in the heart of The South Shropshire Hills so our access gives you the opportunity to bring your bikes, walking and hiking gear. There is also paragliding and gliding on the Long Mynd so its set up for whatever your outdoor pursuit may be. We hire bikes and give you advice and guiding, obviously having the Cafe-Restaurant for you to eat and plenty of free car parking spaces to leave the car.
The pub is set in a few acres of grounds so we have camping facilities with pods and camping ground. Also onsite is our Bike Showroom and Shop so you can demo ride any bike we have available as well as browse clothing and accessories. We also offer maintenance and skills from our MTB and Outdoor Centre.
Here is a video from Shropshire Council about walking in and around Shropshire. We are ideally suited as a base for walkers for a day or a few days!
Throughout the year we host various events, the largest being the CRC Chain Reaction Marathon which is a two day Road Bike and Mountain Bike Event in the middle of summer.
The local area has big events like The Ludlow Food Festival and The Shrewsbury Flower Show.
