    “Herons is a fabulous place to unwind and watch the river and wildlife go by.”

    The view from the terrace and living room is fantastic. The property is fab - fully equipped kitchen, spacious lounge and great bedroom (twin beds pushed together to make superking size). Plenty of parking. Definitely take binoculars with you if you like bird watching - Herons, Egrets, ducks etc as well as the rabbits and field mice in the garden. ...

Plenty of parking. Definitely take binoculars with you if you like bird watching - Herons, Egrets, ducks etc as well as the rabbits and field mice in the garden. Denise was a great host and we were able to get into the property a little earlier than anticipated. She also some Border dark chocolate and ginger biscuits, some milk and some Nescafe double choc mocha sachets as well as tea, coffee, sugar, salt and pepper. Cleaning products also provided which was great. There is a washing machine in the bathroom if you need it too.

About the location

BYFORD

Hereford 8 miles; Hay-on-Wye 14 miles.

The scattered village of Byford lies on the banks of the River Wye on the edge of the beautiful Golden Valley. The village is ideally located in unspoilt Herefordshire countryside between Hay-on-Wye and Hereford, with an extensive range of footpaths including the Wye Valley Walk and Offa's Dyke footpath. The magnificent Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons National Park are also a short drive away. Within easy reach is the ancient city of Hereford with its magnificent cathedral displaying the famous Mappa Mundi world map and an impressive chained library, and its beautiful medieval bridge spanning the River Wye. The town of books, Hay-on-Wye, famous for its 30 plus book shops, charming pubs, antique shops, restaurants and cafes is also an easy drive away, and is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Wales. A little further afield guests can enjoy the fine restaurants, food and antique shops on offer in Ludlow, the many activities in the Forest of Dean and the delightful historic market towns of Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth. Visitors to the area can also enjoy walks in amongst some of the oldest rocks in Britain in the eight mile ridge of the Malvern Hills.
