On the doorstep

Either walk up onto Beacon Hill Crown Estate from our door step or stroll on into the village (5 minutes away) and explore the footpaths on the Shropshire side of the border.   

Beacon Hill is a 5000 acre upland nature reserve and it is a special place indeed, with its open heather clad landscape, spectacular views, tranquillity and high bird and wildlife interest. (Birds include: nesting Wheatear, Meadow Pipit, Whinchat, Stonechat, Merlin, Red Grouse, Linnet, Buzzard, Peregrine and Raven. Hen Harrier and Red Kite are known to visit)  It is wild without being rugged so if you're confident about finding your own way, pick up a map, plan your route (we have a selection in our route portfolio to help you choose  and suggest that you transpose the routes to your own maps as they will be clearer to see)  and head off. 

And we have the Beguildy Community Trail (5 miles) Which is way marked and with a downloadable map and instructions only a mile from the Brandy House along the Glyndwrs Way.


There is also a downloadable 12 mile Glyndwr’s way circular walk right on the doorstep.
