Local Shropshire activities

Walking in Shropshire:  Shropshire has over 3,500 miles of rights of way. A quarter of the county is designated as the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so our long distance routes run through some of the most beautiful and varied landscapes you will find anywhere in Britain, from the wild borderland hills traversed by Offa's Dyke to the rolling fields and deep gorges through which the Severn Way passes on its way to Bristol.

The Severn Way, runs close to Brooke House Bed & Breakfast, crossing over from Wales to England at Crew Green Bridge. It is 210 miles long and follows the River Severn from it’s source at Plynlimon Mid Wales to the sea at the Bristol Channel. Brooke House B&B is a short walk (approx half a mile) from The Severn Way and offers an ideal resting point after an enjoyable days walking. It is a mere 145 miles to the end of the walk. The Severn Way is easily accessible by both bus and rail if you prefer to walk it in sections. Brooke House Bed and Breakfast, situated on the banks of the river Severn just off The Severn Way, is a perfect place to set off for a good days walking after a hearty breakfast and a delicious packed lunch in your rucksack(by prior arrangement with the proprietor).

Angling in Shropshire and Mid-Wales: The river Severn is arguably the main angling attraction in the area and annually produces specimen size Barbel, Chub, Grayling and Pike. Although the B & B has its own 200yd stretch of river that has produced Barbel into double figures and lots of specimen Chub it is likely that visiting anglers will want to explore some of the many local stretches available on day ticket. For game fishermen there are a number of stocked stretches of the river available on day ticket that produce good catches of both Trout and Grayling in some stunning countryside. Salmon still run the river but have been in low numbers in recent years and therefore hard to pin down, especially for visiting anglers. For still water anglers there are a number of commercial fisheries within a 20 minute drive, the most popular being the Weston Pool complex near Oswestry.

Horse riding in Shropshire:  Shropshire is blessed with over 600 miles of byways and bridleways, crisscrossing their way through the countryside. And what countryside! In the south we have the horse-friendly peaks of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In the north, a varied lowland of canals, rivers, meres and mosses giving way to the ancient hills of the Shropshire-Wales border.
