There is scope for all kinds of activities including cycling (there are E-bikes for hire) coarse fishing, walking (the Offa’s Dyke Path runs through the grounds) and there is direct access to dozens of local walks such as taking a stroll through the newly constructed woodchipped woodland walk which takes you through the estate grounds and down to the bottom pool which is colour coded to guide you with ease. Or, you can simply relax and enjoy the peace and quiet and the abundant wildlife at Mellington where ducks, swans and geese swim the pools, rabbits run freely and woodpeckers do their rounds of the trees. Kingfishers can also be spotted flitting between the trees and over the pools, so bring your binoculars!
