Day Out Idea Number 1

A Shropshire Wine and Vineyard Tour

A perfect romantic day out for couples, or likewise, a little treat for Mum & Dad on your holiday in Shropshire. This guided tour of a Shropshire vineyard couldn’t be set in a more beautiful location, with expansive views across the vineyard and fields to the Shropshire Hills – on a warm sunny day you’d be forgiven for thinking you hadn’t been instantly transported to Tuscany.

The day includes a wine tasting experience where you will not only be able to taste wine, but learn how to taste, all accompanied with a delicious platter of local Shropshire cheeses and crackers.

Day Out Idea Number 3

Shropshire has hills, big ones !

Fun and memorable days out don’t have to cost an arm and a leg. In fact it’s those legs, that if put to good use can see you climb a number of Shropshire hills that have expansive views across the land. It’s believed 20 historic counties can be viewed from the summit of the Wrekin on a clear day. That’s a view!

Perhaps the most recognised of all Shropshire’s hills is indeed the Wrekin, a familar sight for all those travelling along the M54. In can be very busy at weekends but it’s ease of access from Telford, plus the view from the top explains why. The Long Mynd is a huge whaleback of a hill with the delightful Church Stretton at it’s base. Cardingmill Valley provides a great starting point closeby for many walks up the Mynd, but it’s Natural Trust car park can again be very busy at weekends, so best visited during the week. Then there’s Shropshire highest point, Brown Clee Hill, a much quieter experience if no less energetic – and from it’s 1772ft summit, there’s no higher ground facing east until you reach central Russia! There are many others fitting of a great day out, including The Stiperstones, Betchcott, Clees, Stretton Hills plus many others.
