We’ve┬ánot known anyone stay here yet who has not been tempted to venture at least to venture at least the immediate area surrounding the RSPB reserve.

You can leave your car at Valley View and explore miles of unspoilt countryside with terrain suitable for all abilities. With the car at home, why not finish up at the NEW INN and then let a 2 minute ride on the 121 bus bring you to your door!


There is no end to the walks available in and around MAWR…walks suitable for all abilities and requirements. One thing for sure, a camera is a must! You will no doubt be joined on your walk by Red Kites, Buzzards and an abundance of wildlife and spectacular views. Even the occasional rain and mist adds it’s own magic and fresh air is guaranteed! For those hardened souls…a winter break adds a whole new dimension to the area and you are assured of a nice warm return to Valley View at the end of the day.

Of course, for those a little more serious about their hiking are more than well catered for with serious walking on the doorstep or further afield. We can even introduce you to THE MAWR WALKING CLUB who organise walks far and wide.
