Events, things to do & places to visit

Local To Ludlow – Enjoy Your Stay!

Things to do and places to visit on our “doorstep”

Riding – either bring your own horses (we have stables & grazing) or book a riding trek at Darky Dale Forest Stables about 4 miles away up the lane

Walking – bring your boots and enjoy unrivalled walking in any direction from the door.  Riverside, farmland, mountain and moorland with a well-chosen pub along the way

Cycling – bring your own bikes for cycling either on quiet lanes or off road down numerous green lanes with thousands of acres of Forestry Commission on our doorstep.  For a more challenging experience go forest cycling through ancient woodland with down hill trails for the true mountain bike enthusiasts.  The renowned Hopton Woods are about four miles away.
