Amazing Experience!

We did the Long Mynd Circular route with Carding Milly Valley. Started off uphill and nearer the waterfall it became more about climbing the rocks! Not for the fainthearted! It was a very misty day but it looked stunning and different terrain and different parts of the walk! Was a really rewarding walk!

Standing proud on the highest peak in Shropshire and slowly trudging up the narrow pathway (it took me AGES but I was determined to get to the waterfall), struggling to beat this wretched illness I have, a hair-raising hill drive up The Burway, Dippers bobbing in bubbling streams, Stonechats calling from gorse, breathtaking waterfalls and adorable wild horses; another ticked off my bucket list! I did this for you mom as you can’t walk far anymore! The staff on-site were friendly and knowledgeable. My only qualm was that there is no gift shop anymore “because of Covid!” 😀

This was a wonderful ride on our Electric mountain bikes.

Shame about the National Trust Cafe where the muffins tasted of cooking oil and nothing else. Stroppy staff and basically another unpleasant National Trust Cafe experience.

Happened on this en route along winding lanes. Just had to stop, to say hello to a pony by the road. Amazing views across Shropshire to The Wrekin. Very uplifting. And there's a golf course too...

A great walk in the countryside, perfect for dogs. The only negative is how exceptionally busy it was. We went around mid-day during the summer holidays, so it’s to be expected but car parking was a nightmare, with having to park around a 10 minute walk away from the entrance. Once away from the cafe area and crossroads past the waterfall, we were lucky enough to not see many people. There are a wide range of routes and beautiful scenery. I would just highly recommend getting there as early as possible!

An occasionally hair-raising drive, well worth it for extraordinary and inspiring views of the stunning Shropshire hills and environs. If you don't have the constitution for the slightly queasy combination of narrow, winding cliff-edge tracks, and long drops - then perhaps better to do this on foot in good weather if you have the time and energy. The views are quite wonderful, even on a dismal day.

Ended up here by accident after taking a wrong turning on a bank holiday weekend! Definitely FABULOUS views but I was doing it in a much bigger car I'd owned for a week and couldn't really enjoy it as I was dreading the journey back down. Haha! Contrary to other reviews, at times the single track road, with a perilous drop on one side and no barriers, can get very busy at certain times. One wrong move and you're a gonner... so be careful guys! This road rivals Hard Knott Pass in the lakes (although much shorter, mercifully) so I would advise walking (gotta be fit!) or at least getting your brakes checked prior to driving! Great views though...

My partner and I walked from Church Stretton all the way to the top of the Long Mynd. Our aim was simple - to look at the thing at the top which says how far away different places are in each direction (e.g. an arrow pointing northwest saying Snowdon, 159 miles or however far it truly is). It took us a fair while and a reasonable amount of energy to get to the top, and then yet more to walk across the plateau to the trig point. You will not believe what happened next. When we finally arrived, the thing was surrounded by a gaggle of cyclists. The full shebang - top to toe in lycra, talking in their annoying loud cyclist voices. We tried to wait them out, but they remained. We waited more, and they remained. I wonder if they stayed there all day, but after a while we could not wait any longer as my partner was desperate to eat lunch, so we made our way. Who knows how far Snowdon is from the Long Mynd? Not me, that's for sure.
