Plan a bike ride in Comer Woods

Comer Woods is 1.5 miles from Dudmaston's main entrance, in the direction of Bridgnorth.  Discover the woodland on the multi use Explorer trail. This 3.5km trail is a great way for families to run, walk or cycle together in beautiful, traffic-free surroundings. 

The Shepherd's Hut is our takeaway food and drink outlet in Comer Woods, near the barn in Heath Meadow, just a short walk from the car park. It's perfect for families and dog walkers who want to pick up something on the go. Check opening times here before you visit.
