Local Attractions & Places to Visit

Alan & Sandra are on hand to offer all sorts of local knowledge – please don’t hesitate to ask! They are a mine of information and always keen to get a map out or show you how to get off the beaten track and find a good pint of ale by a stream after a breathtaking walk!

Activities and Sports

We can give you more information about Fishing, Rock-climbing, Mountaineering, Hill-walking, Mountain Biking, Paint-Balling, Swimming, Horse Riding, Gliding, Para-gliding & Hang-gliding, Rallying, Archery and Shooting. Do ask us about pick-ups from The Offa’s Dyke Path. Offa’s Dyke is a large, 8th Century linear earthwork that roughly follows the current border between England and Wales, just a few minutes’ drive from The Farm.

Wildlife and Nature

The Farm Snead is located within sight of the Roundton National Nature Reserve, Craven Arms is the home of the Secret Hills Centre where you can see the life-sized replica of the Shropshire Mammoth and the Bog Mine and Visitor Centre at Stiperstones (6 miles) is an excellent centre for walking around spectacular scenery. The Long Mynd and National Trust owned Carding Mill Valley are within easy striking distance.

We can also recommend Derwen Garden Centre & Farm Shop as well as Coed y Dinas Country Store, both very near Welshpool. Our local emporium in Montgomery, R.H. Bunner’s Traditional Ironmongers was frequented by Alan’s Grandparents and we continue to shop there regularly.
