What to do?
wild conTENTment offers the ideal spot to savour the great outdoors with acres of wild space for rural pass times such as birdwatching, walking and cycling. Public footpaths on the farm give you easy access to some areas of the farm where we have enriched the environment with benches, log piles and even the odd rope swing for children/adults to explore. Watch the sun go down and gaze at the dark night skies. With very little light pollution the stars can be mesmerising. Ask for equipment we can lend or even a few tips.
After you have reconnected with nature why not learn a new skill or take time out to reset and enjoy a relaxing pass-time such as Yoga or Group Art lessons ( see activities/pass-times/courses) You can do these on site or make use of the Party Shed at the Farmhouse, just ask for details .
The area is a walkers paradise. Our sites are 10 minutes off Offas Dyke's which runs all the way along the Welsh/English border and takes in the beautifully wild and wooded Llynclys Common, a site of specific scientific interest (SSSI). There is a 6 mile circular route from the farm which takes in Offa's Dyke, Llanymynech Rock, Montgomery Canal and offers breath taking views at Jacob's Ladder. This route is also great for mountain bikers. You can get easy access onto The Shropshire Way and Wat's Dyke Way with several other great walks from the farm of varying length to choose from. National Cycle routes can be picked up very close to the farm.
Great walking routes can be found at John Harris's Walking in England (the Llanymynech walk comes past the farm, pick it up at point3)
Beyond the farm we have the following amenities:
Accessible by foot or bike
The canal towpath along the Montgomery canal brings with it safe access for children to walk and cycle without the worry of traffic. The section of canal next to the farm is currently disused but in the exciting process of being restored. Fancy joining in?? They are always keen for volunteers. A 15-minute stroll either way along the towpath brings you to running water on the canal where you can try to spot wildlife or launch your own canoe. If you don't have your own these can be hired from Canal Central. You can also take a horse-drawn Narrow boat trip at weekends.
Offer great horse riding experiences for children and adults of all ages. Hacks are taken on Llynclys common a beautiful area of SSSI.
