Old Downton Lodge a Restaurant with Rooms Recommends

Fantastic walking and cycling from Old Downton Lodge and would highly recommend the Downton Castle walk as you go through Downton Gorge Nature Reserve and along the river Teme where you may be lucky enough to spot Kingfishers and Dippers and right past the front of the Castle. Very memorable
