The nearby National Trust properties, Croft Castle and Berrington Hall, both provide 'grand days out' with extensive grounds, woodland walks, living history and children's and other events such as guided fungi and tree walks.

The Small Breeds Farm Park and Owl Centre at Kington is fun, especially for children as, beside the owl collection, animals from guinea pigs to miniature goats and horses can be handled or stroked.

The Mortimer Forest stretches from Ludlow to Kington and has many points of access with car parks and a long-distance trail which may be walked in sections.

In Shropshire the 1000ft+ plateau the Long Mynd, the Bronze Age Mitchells Fold stone circle and the weird Stiperstones, all within forty-five minutes drive of Ark Cottage, are wonderful high places to walk and visit.

Acton Scott, where the BBC series Victorian Farm was filmed, Stokesay Castle, and the Roman city of Wroxeter (Viroconium) all have their different attractions

The many castles of the Marches, such as Ludlow, Wigmore, Clun, Hay, Abergavenny, Brecon, and pre-Conquest Richards Castle are musts for both adventurous children and adults.
