Local Area

The Walkmill is set in the Shropshire Hills.  We have a wealth of beautiful scenery and visitor attractions for you to enjoy during your self-catering holiday in Shropshire, and the Shropshire Hills.

The Stiperstones (and Bog Visitor Centre) are only a few minutes away from Walkmill Lodge as is the The Long Mynd and Church Stretton (including Cardingmill Valley) – these locations offer beautiful walks and views across rural Shropshire and the Shropshire Hills, though the drive across the Long Mynd is not for the faint hearted!

Our closest town is Bishops Castle, it has a Farmers Market every third Saturday in the month and has 2 banks, a post office and 3 grocery stores. Add to that a wonderful deli, several interesting cafes and 6 pubs . . . not to mention the 2 breweries.  A little further afield, in and around Craven Arms we recommend visiting The Shropshire Hills Visitor Centre, Stokesay Court, Stokesay Castle and Acton Scott Working Farm.

The holiday cottage is also perfectly located to visit Ludlow and Shrewsbury.  We are also blessed with 4 National Trust Properties – Powys Castle and Gardens, Attingham Park, Croft Castle and Berrington Hall – which are all less than a 40-minute drive away, as are the Ironbridge Gorge Museums (all ten of them!) and Cosford Air Museum.
