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.

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
