On a clear day, stunning 360-degree views of the surrounding countryside can be enjoyed from the top of the farm lane, which takes in the Brecon Beacons, Black Hill and the hills of Radnorshire and Montgomeryshire.

About the location

DOCKLOW

Leominster 5.5 miles; Bromyard 6.5 miles; Hereford 17 miles.

The pretty village of Docklow is surrounded by rolling Herefordshire countryside, boasting an excellent village pub serving real ale and home-cooked meals. The immediate area offers many lovely walks, with the Three Choirs Way and Three Rivers Ride running close by, as well as cycle trails, horse riding and fishing available. Nearby, the town of Bromyard has an air of timelessness, with many half-timbered buildings creating a lovely setting for visitors to explore its good range of shops, restaurants and pubs. Leominster is a short drive away and located in the heart of the beautiful border countryside, where England and Wales nudge each other along Offa’s Dyke. A wonderful place to enjoy a lazy afternoon stroll, the town dates back to the 7th century and possesses many fine examples of architecture, such as the Priory Church, along with a wide variety of shops, cafes and pubs. 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 local area. It is ideally placed for exploring The Black and White Village Trail, not to mention the delights of neighbouring Shropshire, Worcestershire and The Cotswolds.
