Local Activities

Folly View is located on the edge of the South Shropshire Hills and is a fantastic area for those who enjoy walking and cycling.

The Shropshire Way is easily accessible within half a mile of Folly View and can be explored in four directions from Craven Arms. There are also many circular walks that can be started from Folly View.

There are many beautiful cycling routes in the area to suit all cycling capabilities whether you are looking for a gentle countryside exploration or demanding off-road cycle tracks through local woods.

Route 44 in the National Cycle Network passes through Craven Arms and a section of Route 44 from Shrewsbury to Leominster is advertised as the Six Castles Cycleway. The six castles on or near the route are (in geographical order from north to south): Shrewsbury Castle, Bishop’s Castle, Stokesay Castle, Ludlow Castle, Richard’s Castle and Croft Castle.
