What about for kids?

What about for kids?

Mickey Miller's Play Barn is a firm favourite with children. It hosts a huge range of play equipment to keep little ones active and occupied and there's a soft area for under 5s too.

Hoo Farm, under an hour's drive away in Telford is another great family fun day. With 125 different breeds of animal from meerkats to Water buffalo, tortoises to ostriches, there's lots to see do. Children have the opportunity to meet some of the fluffy residents, and get involved in the daily programme of events.

Or get the family out and about at Hawkstone Park Follies. Here you can spend the day exploring historic woodland, rocky cliffs, crags, caves and towers built hundreds of years ago. Wind your way through 100 acres of landscaped caves and tunnels and edge your way round high rocky pathways to enjoy the spectacular scenery. It is little wonder this beautiful place has been used as a filming location for a number of t.v and film sets!

Ludlow's famous Castle dates back to 1086 and is one of the most spectacular ruins in the country. As such a large part of Shropshire's cultural heritage, the castle is host to a number of events and festivals throughout the year.

Ludlow is highly recommended as a place to visit with superb medieval and Georgian architecture and lots of fine foodie shops and restaurants. The town is considered the 'gastronomic capital' of Shropshire, it is dedicated to fresh, local produce and provides a range of great places to eat. Located on the A49 just North of Ludlow is the Ludlow Food Centre; here you can see the food being made through the windows of the production kitchens. Nice cafe too.

Stokesay Court

Stokesay Court

A Victorian country house which was used as the setting for the film 'Atonement'. You can book a tour at reception at Upper Norton during the season.

And if you're in the area, why not pay a visit to near-by Stokesay Castle? It is just a few minutes drive away and considered by the English Heritage as the 'finest and best preserved fortified medieval manor house in England'. It features a fantastic 13th century Great Hall, original medieval tiled floor, and some rather interesting wooden carvings to look out for! There's also a lovely moat walk to stroll around afterwards.
