Herefordshire

Herefordshire lies on the beautiful Welsh borders. The county is home to some of the most breathtaking countryside, making it a marvellous destination for a rented holiday cottage. Herefordshire’s centre is Hereford city, dating back to Saxon times with its striking medieval cathedral – home to the world-famous ‘Mappa Mundi’. For a slightly different side of history, visit the Hereford Cider Museum – and keep an eye out for any cider-making festivals!

Further south, holidays in the Wye Valley towns of Ross-on-Wye and Symonds Yat offer a wide and irresistible range of riverside walks and canoeing trips, all amidst stunning scenery. Explore more of the towns themselves and find the unique little shops, such as the Moor Fascinators and Hats in Ross-on-Wye, and of course, Truffles Delicatessen!
