About the location


Presteigne 6 miles; Hay-on-Wye 12 miles.

The small town of Kington, well regarded as a centre for walking, is situated near the England/Wales border in a beautiful area known as the Welsh Marches. It is a wonderful area of wooded hills, tranquil valleys and unspoilt Black and White villages on the English side and the more rugged Cambrian Mountains on the Welsh side. Celebrated by visitors for its lovely scenery and excellent walking and cycling in the surrounding rolling hills, this quiet, pleasant town offers a number of excellent shops, pubs and restaurants. There are a variety of tourist attractions close by including the Small Breeds Farm and Owl Centre, the nationally important Hergest Croft Gardens, Offa’s Dyke Path and Mortimer Trail long distance footpaths, and slightly further afield the National Trust properties of Croft Castle and Berrington Hall. Bradnor Hill, with England’s highest golf course, lies just outside the town. Also within easy reach and well worth a visit is the delightful town of Hay-on-Wye with its numerous book shops, craft and antique shops, along with hosting the famous Hay Festival during the Spring Bank Holiday. Nearby is Ludlow, famous for its gourmet food shops and fine restaurants. The ancient city of Hereford, with its impressive Norman cathedral and famous Mappa Mundi, a 13th century cartographer's interpretation of the world, offers a great day out. A delightful holiday location to suit all ages and tastes.
