May 12, 2015 - Ludlow

Saturday: After a lovely week in Marksbury near Bath, we were sad to leave. But there is still half a country to see so we said goodbye to Caroline, Matthew and the dogs and pushed on towards Ludlow. Place names here can be more descriptive than necessary. The other day, as we were driving towards Cold Ashton, we found ourselves on Freezinghill Drive. Wouldn’t want to be there in winter. Shortly after we passed through Tiddlywink – perhaps that’s what you play during the long cold winters! The countryside continued to be as beautiful as...

May 3, 2015 - A new walk in the Shropshire Hills

We had moved from the Brecon Beacons to Ludlow so that Heather could attend Redditch hospital for an MRI prior to her gallbladder operation on the 11 May. The MRI went fine so we had a few days before we moved to near Birmingham to enjoy once again the Shropshire Hills. We found a lovely walk not far from the campground which gave us splendid views across the area and also on our return back to the campground the best view of Ludlow Castle and the town.

Mar 10, 2015 - Walk to the highest point in Shropshire

It was an absolutely stunning day with beautiful warm sunshine so we decided we would explore the Clee Hills and if possible walk up to the highest point in Shropshire. After travelling a few narrow Shropshire lanes we eventually found the parking area and found a good gentle path up to the highest point in Shropshire. We walked through common land with sheep and horses grazing to the top. The views were spectacular, well worth the climb.

Mar 3, 2015 - Dog walk with a view

Heather was feeling a lot better so we decided we would head to Ludlow in Shropshire. The campground had only been open a few years and was lovely. Because of the time of year there were very few campers. We had a lovely big pitch. Daisy thought the dog walk was top notch – a huge fenced in field with plenty of space to run around and chase the rabbits. Because of its location the dog walk had beautiful views of the Shropshire Hills which on our first few mornings had snow on them. We were all very happy.

Mar 16, 2013 - Long Mynd and Ludlow

We decided to head towards Ludlow for the day however we decided to take the long way through Long Mynd. We had read in our guide books that there was good walking in the Long Mynd but was not sure what sort of county it was. What we discovered was an area of wild moor land latticed with foot paths and some stunning views. It was not good walking weather so we enjoyed the drive over the moors and the country lanes as we headed to Ludlow. This was an area we have now marked down to return to at a future date. We arrived at Ludlow which is...
