About the location


Hereford 7 miles.

The pretty village of Madley lies on the edge of the beautiful Golden Valley, boasting two village pubs and its very own moat, a haven for wildlife, flora and fauna. Madley is ideally situated in unspoilt Herefordshire countryside between the 'town of books' Hay-on-Wye, and the cathedral city of Hereford. Madley offers an extensive network of footpaths with superb views, and is close to the Brecon Beacons National Park and the Black Mountains. The ancient city of Hereford is just 7 miles away, dating back to Saxon times and boasting a beautiful cathedral with 'chained library', home to a collection of rare books, the Mappa Mundi world map and a magnificent medieval bridge crossing the River Wye. The wonderful market town of Hay-on-Wye, one of the most visited tourist attractions in Wales, is home to 30-plus book shops, excellent pubs, antique shops and restaurants. Offa's Dyke footpath and the Wye Valley walk are within easy reach, and a little further afield, enjoy the fine architecture of Leominster and the many activities on offer in the Royal Forest of Dean. A great holiday destination at any time of year.
