On your door step:
Mellington’s own woodland walk
Ideal for both young and old to enjoy the natural beauty of the many types of trees, with views out to the open countryside and quiet secluded areas to sit and listen to the wildlife around you. There are about 3 miles of colour coded paths to follow, with seats along the way, so whether walking the dog, a treasure hunt for the kids, a picnic or a lovers’ stroll there is much to see and enjoy all year round in this treasure of natural beauty.
The Lake side walk
Just off the front lawn of the Hall the path winds down to the large lake. This has only recently been opened up after thirty years of natural growth.
The lake supports much wildlife and there are many old trees to see with views over the surrounding hills and fields, while enjoying the waters edge.
Children must be supervised by an adult due to the deep water.
Offa’s Dyke walk
This runs through Mellington Hall and you can go further afield by following this path to Bishops Castle or Welshpool for the more adventurous.
Many walkers stop off for the night has they walk what could be the length of Wales.
Shropshire & Wales has some of the most beautiful scenery in the UK so during your stay why not take some of it in.
No matter which direction you head in, or how difficult you want the trail to be, there is a walk nearby to suit you.
