Walking & Hiking
Over the years our remarkable location has become a perfect haven for walkers and bird watchers enjoying the abundance of wildlife seen from the roads, tracks and footpaths surrounding the farm. The farm is a great place to start exploring the countryside walks and is situated on an elevated position with the Chelmarsh Lake to one side, wetland and reed beds to another and a gentle slope down to the Severn in the front. This vista overlooks the Severn Valley with views of the National Trust’s Dudmaston Estate, Bridgnorth and is occasionally interrupted by the steam locomotives of the Severn Valley Railway.

The farm operates a ‘Countryside Stewardship Scheme’, avoiding intensive farming methods giving special attention to the preservation of natural habits and wildlife. The Dinney is a mecca for birdwatchers who will marvel at the wild birds from the RSPB hide on the Chelmarsh Nature Reserve including woodpeckers, partridge, pheasant, jay, kingfishers, heron, geese, many varieties of ducks, cormorants, and finches... (oh and not forgetting our own hens!)
The Dinney sits on the Jack Mytton Way travels through nearly 100 miles of Shropshire’s most beautiful and unspoilt countryside. Rural byways, bridleways and quiet country lanes lead you through historic market towns and sleepy villages, across open moorland and past ancient earthworks. The southern loop, over secluded parts of the Shropshire Hills, means that you can now do a circular ride. Open to horse riders, cyclists and walkers the majority of the route is off road.
With over 5,500 km’s of Public Rights of Way and over 7,000 ha of open access land and a quarter of the county designated as the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you will be spoilt for choice with stunning walks and views round every corner.
