We were staying nearby and visited this National Trust site on a daily basis. It has excellent facilities and really good sign posted walks for varying abilities. A great place to exercise the dogs. Loved it.

Carding Mill Valley is such a lovely place to visit. Nice open walk across the hills with beautiful scenery. The waterfall is nice to see as well. Parking is on site but costs.

There's a walk gently sloping upwards along a stream to a waterfall. £3.60 to park if you're not staying all day is a shame. Nice National Trust cafe with a good selection of sandwiches. Lots of little hills around with children playing on them and...More

Once you can get past the cars and crowds on a hot sunny day you can choose long treks or short walk to hidden gems like waterfalls, streams and reservoirs for swimming and paddling.

The valley is on the outskirts of Church Stretton and has an NT café, shop and car park (free for members). There are a number of marked walks around the valley and the landscape is stunning.
