Fifteen magnificent views to discover when staying at our parks


Brown Clee Hill

Distance: 11 km
Time: 3-4 hours
Difficulty: Hard

The highest hill in Shropshire, Brown Clee Hill is located in the Shropshire Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and only 25 minutes away from our Stanmore Hall Touring Park.

The highest point, Abdon Burf, stands at 540 metres above sea level and is part of the Clee Hills. Walk along ancient paths and discover Iron Age forts to be rewarded with panoramic views of the lush Shropshire countryside.

There is a small amount of roadside parking available at Park Gate, which is a good starting point for conquering the hill.

Titterstone Clee Hill

Distance: 7.4 km
Time: 2.5 hours
Difficulty: Moderate

Also part of the Clee Hills, Titterstone Clee Hill is not quite as tall as nearby Brown Clee Hill, at 533 metres above sea level, but still offers fantastic views of South Shropshire.

With prehistoric cairns to be found on the summit, alongside the ruins of a Bronze Age hill fort, this hilltop is fairly barren so that you can enjoy unobstructed views. 

There is also a car park near the summit of Titterstone Clee Hill, off Dhustone Lane and 8 miles from our Ludlow Touring Park, which is a perfect spot to explore the nearby ruins of a 19th-century quarry.

The Wrekin

Distance: 8 km
Time: 2.5 hours
Difficulty: Moderate

Standing at 406 metres above sea level, The Wrekin may not be the highest hill in Shropshire but it could be argued that it is the most famous!

Once a hillfort for the Celtic tribe known as the Cornovii, the hillfort is thought to have been built around 1000 BC, and the Hell Gate and Heaven Gate still provide entrance to the summit for modern-day visitors.

On a clear day, you may be able to see up to twenty English and Welsh counties at the top of The Wrekin, from Oxfordshire to Monmouthshire.

The Wrekin does have a car park at Forest Glen, although this can get quite busy during peak times. Alternatively, if you are staying at our Oxon Hall Touring Park, the adjacent park and ride will take you into Shrewsbury town centre, where you can catch a train to Wellington. It is a twenty-minute walk from Wellington train station to the edge of the Wrekin Forest.

The Lawley

Distance: 6.1 km
Time: 1.5 - 2.5 hours
Difficulty: Moderate

Located 13 miles from our Stanmore Hall Touring Park, the Lawley can be found in the Shropshire Hills and offers a gentler walk across its grassy ridge.

From the summit of this 377 metre tall hill, you can catch a glimpse of other Shropshire landmarks, such as The Wrekin and The Long Mynd.

There is a small car park at the base of the hill and it tends to be a quieter walking route compared to other Shropshire hills.

Long Mynd

Distance: 8 km
Time: 2.5 hours
Difficulty: Challenging

Located in the heart of the Shropshire Hills, the Long Mynd is a long plateau that offers stunning views of the surrounding Shropshire and Cheshire countryside.

A Site of Special Scientific Interest, in the summer months the hill becomes alive with a sea of purple as the heather flourishes. As well as a variety of flora, you might also catch a glimpse of the wild ponies that call the Shropshire Hills their home.

Only a half-hour drive from our Ludlow Touring Park, Carding Mill Valley and the Long Mynd are operated by National Trust. There is a pay and display car park which is free for National Trust members, but be aware this can get quite busy.

Long mynd


Distance: 6 km
Time: 2 hours
Difficulty: Hard

Neighbouring the Long Mynd, the Stiperstones can also be found in the Shropshire Hills.

With a magnificent ridge of quartzite rock sparkling in the sunshine at the top of the hill, don't forget to take in the Devil's Chair. As legend has it, the Devil himself dropped these rocks onto the hill and as such the Stiperstones has become a mystical place brimming with folklore and legends.

Parking can be found at the Bog Mine car park, approximately 15 miles from our Oxon Hall Touring Park, or the Stiperstones car park will provide you with a more direct route to the Stiperstones.

Caer Caradoc Hill

Distance: 8 km
Time: 3 - 4 hours
Difficulty: Moderate

Located near Church Stretton, half an hour away from our Ludlow Touring Park, Caer Caradoc offers beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.

This can be a steeper climb than some of the other Shropshire walks, but at the summit you will find an Iron Age hillfort which local legend says is the site of Caratacus's last battle against the Romans.

Parking is available in Church Stretton, at the Easthope Road pay and display car park in the centre of the town.

Haughmond Hill

Distance: Four trails ranging from 1.2 to 3.5 km
Time: 30 minutes to an hour
Difficulty: Easy to Moderate

For a gentler walk surrounded by rich forest, Haughmond Hill is a fantastic option that still provides majestic views over Shropshire and Wales. 

With four walking trails to choose from, there are walks suitable for buggies and mobility scooters, plus a cafe serving hot drinks and food.

Located 11 miles from our Oxon Hall Touring Park, there is a pay and display car park right at the start of the trails.

North Wales


Distance: 7 km
Time: 3 hours
Difficulty: Challenging

This list just wouldn't be complete without mentioning Snowdon! The highest mountain in England and Wales, Yr Wydda, as it is known in Welsh, is the most recognizable peak in Snowdonia National Park. 

Standing at 1085 metres, this mountain is a challenging climb with a variety of different routes up to the summit, but the breathtaking views really do speak for themselves.

If you don't fancy the hike, you can still discover the magnificent views by taking the Snowdon Mountain Railway up the mountain.

Some routes start in the village of Llanberis, only a 15-minute walk from our Llanberis Touring Park.

Castell y Gwynt

Distance: 7.5 km
Time: 4 hours
Difficulty: Challenging

Castell y Gwynt, or "Castle of the Winds" is an impressive mound of rocks spiking up towards the sky, sat atop the Glyder Fach in Snowdonia.

Creating a dramatic foreground to the magnificent Snowdonia views behind, almost as if you were right in the middle of a fantasy film, there are numerous routes up Glyder Fach and to Castell y Gwynt.

Head to the Ogwen car park, near to the beautiful Llyn Ogwen and 12 miles from our Llanberis Touring Park, and follow the circular trail that takes you around Y Garn, Llyn Bochlwyd and Glyder Fach.

Llyn Elsi

Distance: 6.7 km
Time: 2 hours
Difficulty: Easy to Moderate

Hidden in the Gwydyr Forest above Betws-y-Coed, Llyn Elsi is a glorious mountain lake that transports the viewer to a mystical landscape with the mountains of Snowdonia in the distance.

Setting off from St Mary's Church, climb the trail to the lake through rich woodland. Although steep in some places, the views once you reach Llyn Elsi are incredible.

Parking is available at St Mary's Church, or the start of the route is a six-minute walk from our Riverside Touring Park.

Swallow Falls

Distance: 3.3 km
Time: 1 hour
Difficulty: Easy to Moderate

Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Swallow Falls is a magnificent waterfall where the river Llugwy reaches a narrow chasm.

Rhaeadr Ewynnol, as it is known in Welsh, is 42 metres high and is the highest continuous waterfall in Wales.

There is a small entry fee of £2 to view Swallow Falls, or you can follow a longer walk along the way-marked route from Ty'n Llwyn to reach a different, free viewpoint. Parking is available at the pay and display car park at the Swallow Falls Hotel, 2.5 miles away from our Riverside Touring Park.


The Black Hill

Distance: 7.6 km
Time: 3 hours
Difficulty: Easy to Moderate

Otherwise known as the Cat's Back due to the shape of the hill resembling an arched cat when seen from the east, the Black Hill is in the Black Mountains.

At 640 metres tall, the hill features a long ridge across the length of the mountain and offers beautiful views across the Olchon Valley, as well as Herefordshire and Wales. The ridge itself is a few metres wide but does have steep inclines to either side so may be more tricky if you are scared of heights!

The Black Hill has a small car park and is half an hour from our Poston Mill Touring Park.

Coppett Hill

Distance: 10 km
Time: 2.5 to 3 hours

Part of one of the largest local nature reserves in Herefordshire, the hill is 188 metres high and also offers walks through beautiful ancient woodlands.

There is a small amount of parking on the hill, or you can park in the nearby village of Goodrich.

Garway Hill

Distance: 6.1 km
Time: 2 hours
Difficulty: Moderate

Standing at 365 metres and spread over 85 hectares, Garway Hill is a majestic natural landscape waiting to be explored.

With views across the Malverns, Black Mountains and the Bristol Channel, this is a great spot to watch a sunset or sunrise.

The hill is also home to a variety of flora and fauna, as 87% of the rugged landscape is a sea of bracken. You may even catch a glimpse of the wild horses that live on the hill.

There is a small car park at Lower Castre that leads to Garway Common and is 11 miles from our Poston Mill Touring Park.
