Acton Scott Farm enables a walk from the door through farmland with beautiful views of the South Shropshire countryside. The walk is about 1.5 miles and will take at least half an hour to complete. It is suitable for walkers of all ages and abilities but some of the surfaces are uneven in places. In Summer, strong shoes are suitable but during Seasons when the fields are wet, waterproof footwear is necessary.
Broome Park Farm has a circular walk from the door along the River Rea and through Neen Savage village. It takes about 45 minutes but allow time to play Pooh sticks on either of the footbridges crossing the river. Cleobury Mortimer Footpath Association also has an excellent website of local walks, all available to download as pdfs.
