Delightful place with great tea rooms and acres of dog friendly hills and streams. Two valleys in one. Each with a stream one with two small reservoirs one with a waterfall. So much to maintain don't understand why £4 All day is too much.

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.

A few different walks for different capabilities, very fun to do! The views are fantastic and it's nice to just escape for a little while!

Great place for walking, owned by National Trust. Great for families, kids and couples alike. Easy walking on paths although you can go for a bit of a scramble if you follow the harder route up to the waterfalls. Good cafe and toilets with good...More

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

The walks to the reservoir & waterfall were both very pleasant. I would suggest that the leaflets obtainable from the National Trust hut under estimate the degree of difficulty. On a wet day the waterfall walk in particular contained several rocky sections on the path...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
