Woodland Picnic Site & Wildlife Area 

Alkington Grange Barns is located in the Rural North Shropshire Countryside, surrounded by farm land. With a beautiful Wildlife pond located in the heart of the holiday barns, our location is perfect for getting away from the hustle and bustle of life and wonderful for the kids to explore and experience the wonders of the Countryside.

Our Woodland Picnic Area & Wildlife Area is set within our Farm grounds here at Alkington Grange Barns. Just a short walk from your Holiday Cottage and you will find our beautiful picnic ground, which is a great place to explore and to relax in. We have our own Bug Hotel, which attracts all sorts of Bugs and Beasties, great for the kids to explore.

Get involved with the Great Butterfly Count, which happens every year. Our fields and hedgerows are filled with an extensive array from Speckled Woods to the beautiful Peacock Butterfly.

Why not bring your binoculars to do a spot of Bird Watching, with Red Kites, Buzzards, Kestrels and Hawks, along with many hedgerow birds.

How about a bit of Star Gazing. As we are in a rural area our night sky allows a great view of the stars, being able to see Orions Belt, The Seven Sisters, The Great Bear and you can even see the International Space Station when it's over head.

Alkington Grange Barns is the perfect place to visit to experience a break away in the country side. With peace and quiet but plenty to do both onsite and in the local area, Alkington Grange Barns offers the perfect break away.
