You will find Cleobury Mortimer tucked between the Clee Hills (Titterstone Clee and Brown Clee Hill) and the Wyre Forest, surrounded by panoramic views and wonderful walks in Cleobury Country. Named after the medieval Marcher Lords, Cleobury Mortimer can be accessed directly from Ludlow town centre via the long distance footpath, the Mortimer Trail.
Cleobury's St. Mary's Church has a crooked spire and walls that lean at an alarming angle and the main street curves gently down to the River Rea. Cleobury Mortimer's High Street was once described by English poet Sir John Betjeman as "A long airy curving street of brick Georgian houses and shops interspersed with genuine halftimber, the Rea brook making a splash at the bottom of the hill."
There are many pubs in Cleobury Mortimer; try Cleobury's own beer from the Hobson's Brewery, one of Shropshire's best real ales. There are also real butchers and bakers, a florist and traditional ironmongers and a well-stocked greengrocer. Look out for the cakes and the Shropshire brown loaves, from the 'highest bakery in Shropshire' at the top of Clee Hill (the highest bakery in Shropshire and probably the UK too!)
There are many ways to enjoy a stay in Cleobury Mortimer. Cleobury Mortimer Footpath Association, Stotty Strollers and Kinlet Countryside Group lead guided walks throughout the year and there are self guided walks available too.
