Welcome to the 'land of milk and honey', England's truly rural county and our pick of Herefordshire holiday cottages.
Picture gloriously green countryside, where rolling hills and
meandering valleys combine with rich, fertile soil. Sturdy Hereford
cattle, known for their prime beef cuts, graze the meadows, while
orchards bring 'pick your own' - a fun, healthy and tasty
pastime for families self-catering in Herefordshire. Grown-ups
(especially those with bikes) can sample the Cider Trail, a
twenty-mile route around the region's top cider-makers. Swap
apples for art and check out the local workshops, displaying unique
creations ideal for that special keepsake.Or, enjoy an afternoon
romp with 'Rex' in the Queenswood Country Park &
Arboretum, Herefordshire's only designated country park.
Another must is the Black and White Trail, a picturesque journey around Herefordshire's exquisite, half-timbered villages, some dating back to medieval times. Or what about a tour of the Iron Age camps or string of hilltop castles along the border with Wales? Explore the bustling market towns of Ross-on-Wye, Leominster, Ledbury, Kington and Bromyard, as well as the City of Hereford with its magnificent Norman cathedral. Discover historic mansions and beautiful gardens such as Lower Brockhampton and Berrington Hall.
Outdoor fun from your Herefordshire accommodation
Expect wonderful walking, the kind that promises stunning natural surroundings - the Offa's Dyke Path, Mortimer Trail, Fairlands Valley Park, Black Mountains, Wye Valley, Malvern Hills. Or set out on the water, a river cruise perhaps or tackling the rapids at Symonds Yat. Fishing, cycling, riding and golf - the list goes on.
Add year-round festivals - cider making, poetry, music, walking or even the Hay Festival of Literature & the Arts just across the border. For more information on what to see and do during your Herefordshire cottage holiday
