Perfect on a nice day to walk up to the reservoir (easy route) and round to the waterfall (medium route), not too much distance, but the terrain can be challenging for dogs and younger kids, but worth the effort. Scenery is amazing and the streams...More

A lovely place to spend a few hours. Children love catching fish in the river, building damns, climbing tress. Take a picnic, climb to the waterfalls or swim in the reservoir. Always so much to do and always brings happy smiles to faces.

One of the many ways up the Long Mynd. Today being a Sunday it was very busy so we had to park on the road outside. There are toilets, shops, cafe, parking, etc. all run by the National Trust. Once you get past the crowds...More

I would definitely recommend families to come here for a day out. You can park by the stream, set up a mini camp and the kids will play all day. We normally take buckets and nets too, the kids enjoy searching for fish and learning...More

Not once you get past the car parks as it gets rocky. But there is a road from Church Stretton going to the top of the Long Mynd though cars use it too.

Sorry for the late reply but been abroad. This stream is not suitable for kayaking but paddling with feet only. All pitches are less than 100 m from the stream
