Pretty stream and valley with good paths. The waterfall was over sold! and the path from the main path more difficult. A wander up the valley to the ridge is and easy walk with good views and lovely autumn colour

Spent a good few hours in this stunning location and did the easy walk to the reservoir and the medium walk to the waterfall, which I managed ok considering I'm not the fittest person. A great place to get away from it all.

The location is stunning and the refurb of the coffee shop looks great, however the prices are rather expensive but still a great place to stop off whilst out walking.

We visited on a lovely autumn Wednesday. It was not too busy and there were a few school trips. There is such a variety of landscape features that one visit is not enough. The potential walks are invigorating so expect to exert a little effort....More

I tend to associate the National Trust, of which we are members, with stately homes and grand mansions, however this beautiful strip of Shropshire administered by the NT is a fantastic part of the English countryside that allows public access to the lower reaches of...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
