Ledbury

A poetic town of timber framed buildings and a history dating back to 690AD, Ledbury has a lot to fall in love with. It was the birthplace of the poets Elizabeth Barrett Browning and John Masefield and provided inspiration for William Wordsworth when he wrote the lilting sonnet ‘St. Catherine of Ledbury’. By taking a quick wander around the town, it is easy to see why they were so inspired.

Ledbury is filled with beautiful black and white timber framed buildings, especially along Church Lane and Ledbury High Street. One of the most striking buildings of this kind is situated in the heart of the town, Market House, built in 1617. The parish church of St. Michael and All Angels is picturesque and gives an insight into some of the town’s rich history. Stunning and beautifully preserved sixteenth century frescoes can be viewed in ‘the Painted Room’, St. Katherine’s Hospital provides a rare look at a thirteenth century hospital complex of almshouses, chapel and hall, and nearby Grade I listed Eastnor Castle is a striking example of a 19th century ‘mock castle’.

As well as historic buildings and famous residents, Ledbury has plenty to keep visitors occupied. With an annual poetry festival and well known music festival, ‘The Big Chill’, held at Eastnor Castle and the bustling Market Theatre in the centre of town, making Ledbury a contemporary cultural centre.

No trip to Ledbury would be complete without a visit to Sapey Brook and the Hoar Stone, where you can discover the tale of St. Catherine of Ledbury and the thief who is said to have been turned to stone for his crimes.

Set against a backdrop of beautiful countryside just waiting to be explored, Ledbury has poetry, history, culture and simple beauty in abundance and is the perfect place for an inspiring escape. Start planning your break and search for cottages in Ledbury today.
