It has two pubs and a thatched church. Other amenities, such as shops, pubs, banks and teashops, are just up the road in Church Stretton. Little Stretton is the starting point for a popular ramble up the beautiful and rugged Ashes Hollow, which takes you to the top of the Long Mynd. From the top of the Mynd, which is covered in purple heather in the summer, walkers can descend to the National Trust shop in Cardingmill Valley before returning via Church Stretton. Across the main valley, a stiff climb to the marker post on Ragleth Hill will lead you to a lovely walk along its high ridge and to a more gradual descent into Church Stretton. Little Stretton is also within easy reach of other attractions in Shropshire, such as historic Shrewsbury, the market-tow of Ludlow and the ancient spectacle of Stokesay Castle.
A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was "the quietest place under the sun" and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.
