Our facilities & the local area

The 1,300-acre Blithfield Estate is set in the lush, green rolling landscape that forms East Staffordshire and is close to the village of Abbots Bromley.

The Estate has Site of Special Scientific Interest designation and has long been open to members of the West Midland Bird Club since it attracts such a wide variety of birdlife. Only recently, however, has it been opened up to the public to let them discover this peaceful and picturesque setting, alongside the 754-acre Blithfield Reservoir.

The reservoir is recognised as a premier trout fishery and is home to Blithfield Anglers as well as Blithfield Sailing Club.

The historic village of Abbots Bromley, famed for its annual Horn Dance, offers plenty of opportunity for relaxation with several pubs and nearby is the cathedral city of Lichfield and Burton-on-Trent, renowned as the country’s capital of the brewing industry, as well as The National Forest, which covers some 200 square miles of central England.

There is a free car park and toilets on site for visitors to our walks. The blue route has partial wheelchair access.
