Hereford is one of the oldest Cities in the UK with Hereford Cathedral being home to the Mappa Mundi and Chained Library dating back to 17th Century and containing one of the earliest 8th Century books.

The River Wye runs through the City on its way from from Afon Gwy, Powys. to Ross on Wye and Symonds Yat to the south of Hereford.  Both fantastic places to visit on your travels and very popular with walkers.

For antiques, the town of Leominster to the North of Hereford has several antique shops and boutiques to browse around and further North is the famous food town of Ludlow with its ancient castle situated in the town centre.

To the West are the Brecon Beacons. Closer to Hereford is Hay on Wye, now famous for its literary festival in May.

To the East is Ledbury, a very pretty market town with plenty of interesting shops and cafes.  A brilliant source for unusual gifts and momentoes and some wonderful traditional black and white buildings.

Herefordshire is very much renowned for its Black and White Trail with an array of Tudor and medieval cottages.  If you like a tipple, The Cider Trail is for you, taking you on a flavoursome tour of the countryside.  For music buffs, The Elgar Route is just a stones throw and includes the magnificent Malvern Hills.

For the adventurous guests there are two go-karting tracks within a short distance, there are several riding stables offering you the chance to ride traditional Welsh Cobs deep into the beautiful Welsh countryside.
