For those of you who would like to try something new or enjoy a sport you love, the site is perfectly located for all kinds of recreational activity. An 18 hole golf course can be found at the end of the park and a fishing and boating lake is right next door. Book a sailing course, hire some clubs or take a walk to the high ropes adventure in Baggeridge. There are also some great walks and cycle routes all around us.


Have fun competing with your family and friends under the sun!


Try out the high ropes adventure at Baggeridge Park, a 20 minute walk from Himley Hall Glamping through the park. Explore the natural habitats that line the chain of pools, through the woods to the left of the golf course.

Just a stroll along the Park's avenue, you can enjoy Himley's lovely 18 hole golf course and driving range: either hire a set of clubs or bring your own.

You can obtain a day fishing licence from the council and see what you can catch. The park's lake is also known as the Great Pool and has a variety of fish and very relaxed and inquisitive birds.

One of the sets for Peaky Blinders, this victorian village has everything you could want to take you back to life for working people in the Black County. With a mine experience, nailmaker, blacksmith and baker, a traditional ale house and chippy, you can explore the shops, school house and workshops to your heart's content. Come and see where the anchor chain for the Titanic was forged.


Next door, the Himley Sailing Club offers weekend sailing courses: levels 1 & 2. Let us know in advance if this is something you are interested in and we can make enquiries on your behalf.

You may simply like to watch the dinghies race about on the water, feed the birds and stay on dry land.


Within walking distance is a reasonable restaurant at Himley House Hotel and a more traditional carvery, all you can eat breakfast and the usual pub grub at The Dudley Arms. Or you can grab a bacon butty at the Cabin next to the golf course or jacket potato at Himley Hall's cafe. Of course there are lots of great takeaways locally too.
