Leominster 14 miles.
The cathedral town of Hereford dates back to Saxon times, and with its medieval bridge over the winding River Wye it is the very image of picturesque England. With a mix of buildings from almost every British era, eclectic Hereford is a popular base for those seeking to explore the locale – being ideally placed for accessing the Black and White villages of the region, not to mention the delights of neighbouring Shropshire, Worcestershire and The Cotswolds. Famous as a cider producing town, Hereford is also the home of the Mappa Mundi, the largest and most elaborate pre-15th century map in existence, which resides in the cathedral alongside the famous Chained Library – a collection of over 1500 rare books from as early as the 8th century. Nearby is the half timbered town of Leominster, filled with medieval buildings, often overhanging the street, and also accessible is the natural splendour of Symonds Yat, a rocky outcrop on a 5 mile bend of the River Wye, with spectacular views and the opportunity to spot protected peregrine falcons flying from their nests.

Excellent location, very stylish interior decoration which has been thoughtfully renovated to maximise space. The property was equipped with everything we could possibility need, and new baby equipment was also supplied for us.
Mr Shire, Halifax, January 2012
The property was very well equipped and the location was perfect for central Hereford. The owners had taken great care with furnishings and the central heating kept the rooms warm. We would stay there again!

The cottage felt very much like home and thus it was easy to relax.
