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.

    Ref: W43815


    Many years ago, The Cider House was used for storage of grain and home-produced cider barrels (from which its name derives), and preceding that, it housed the farmstead’s cows. More recently, the owners of this model Flemish Bond brick-building have seen it transformed into a calm, comfortable and relaxing retreat in the hills. Well-kept and equipped with all necessary mod-cons, the property is an enviable holiday accommodation, ideal for those who seek solace from the madding crowd and the pressures of the everyday grind.

    The property is situated in 9 acres of meadowland, with a meandering brook and smallholding within the grounds of the owner’s working farm, Highbridge Farm, surrounded by rolling Herefordshire countryside yet with easy access to the pretty market town of Ledbury. History emanates from every corner of the farm; earthworks are still visible along the edge of the spinney which dates back to 1066, and the land around the present location of Highbridge Farm has been worked since the Norman times. Buildings of the farm have been present since c1540, and although it has now silted up and planted with young trees, the small stream was once dammed to form a header pool, most likely used to feed the nearby River Leadon. Also visible are medieval ridge and furrow earthworks, a ploughing system used in the Middle Ages (which have been mapped from aerial photos as part of the Malvern Hills National Mapping Programme). Sure enough, the property is great for those who have a thirst for history.

    Walkers can enjoy walks from the doorstep and beyond to the Malvern Hills; you might want to bring a camera, sketch pad and pencil, as the area is also popular with photographers, artists and cyclists alike. There are many historical places of interest to visit including castles, National Trust houses and gardens. Ledbury itself offers a selection of boutique shops, galleries, restaurants and local attractions. The picturesque Forest of Dean is well worth a visit for a picnic, or absorb the stunning scenery of the Wye Valley. Further afield but within easy driving, is the cathedral city of Hereford, Ross-on-Wye, Gloucester and Cheltenham. Shop 1¼ miles, pub 1 mile and restaurant 1½ miles.
