The Long Mynd and the Stiperstones ridge
May 27th 2018
Broughton Bunkhouse provides accommodation in this larges area of heathland in the Shropshire Hills.
Broughton Bunkhouse is close to the Long Mynd and the Stiperstones ridge which make up the largest area of open heathland in the Shropshire Hills. Visually, these two ‘hills’ are very different – the Long Mynd is a large and long plateau, while the Stiperstones ridge has rugged outline. Come to stay at the bunkhouse and look for the bilberry (known locally as whinberry) amongst the Heather and the many insects and birds that come to eat them.

Broughton Bunkhouse, near Bishop’s Castle is a beautiful old 17th century barn and the ideal place from which to experience Shropshire.
Broughton Bunkhouse, near Bishop’s Castle certainly fits my mental image of what Shropshire is like. With its 17th century heritage, wooden exterior and thick beamed ceiling, it is charming, rural, relaxed. You could choose to meander through picturesque Clun or Bishop’s Castle or go further afield and explore the history and foody-ness of Ludlow. There is, of course, the stunning countryside typified by The Long Mynd to walk or cycle through. And Broughton Bunkhouse would a perfect place to base yourself as an individual, a family or as a group. But remember that the British summertime brings a certain sort of madness: festivals, fairs and foolishness. Have a look at the local events and you’ll see what I mean. My favourite is the British Stone Skimming Championships.
