Find cottages in Herefordshire

Although Herefordshire is now a place of beautiful tranquility it has not always been like that. Its history is one of border conflicts and war and as such has a fascinating past with castles and ancient monuments that bear testament to more turbulent times.

This rural county has miles of rolling green landscapes and a fantastic agricultural heritage, bustling market towns and pretty villages, country pubs and quirky shops; a welcoming place for visitors who come to recharge their batteries.

The Normans build a number of castles here which were home to their wealthy landlords and earls, of particular note is Goodrich Castle near Ross-on-Wye which is extremely well preserved and the romantic Wigmore Castle, family home to the Mortimers whose heir Edward IV took the thrown of England in the aftermath of the War of the Roses.

Herefordshire has a host of ancient churches not least of which is Hereford Cathedral which contains the Mappa Mundi a medieval map of the world as envisaged in about 1289.

The old market town of Ross-on-Wye is strategically positioned above the River Wye, offers magnificent views and is perfectly placed for lovely walks along the Wye Valley (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty). The town itself is packed with historical interest which can be fully revealed at the Ross Heritage Centre at the 17th century Market House. Also of interest is Leominster situated in the Herefordshire ‘Marches’; a quintessential English town dating from medieval times with antique shops and typical ‘black and white’ houses.

Herefordshire is famed for its produce, so it’s perhaps no surprise to find out that some of its best attractions proudly celebrate this agricultural heritage, not least it’s tradition for cider making. Many cider making farms offer tours and sampling for visitors which provides the perfect excuse to try some genuine Herefordshire cider!

Whether you’re travelling the country roads by car, cycling or walking you’ll find this charming corner of England just waiting to be discovered.

    This grand detached country house is set within 2 acres of attractive gardens, beautifully presented with formal lawn, walled garden, arboretum and pretty rosebeds.

    With beautiful rural views towards King Arthur’s Cave and King Caracticus’ Fort, this Georgian farmhouse makes an ideal holiday base for walkers. It is only one mile from The Biblins Bridge – with the meandering River Wye below – from where superb views of Seven Sisters Rock are to be admired.
    The area offers some of the finest walking and cycling terrain in the country. Within 5 miles the Offa’s Dyke, Three Castles Walk and Wye Valley Walk entice walkers along their historic paths, taking in stunning scenery and ‘black-and-white’ villages en route. Symonds Yat lies close by, a must for outdoor lovers; kayaks and canoes can be hired for a leisurely day upon the river, while those seeking more excitement can try their hand at white water rafting. Other activities to enjoy locally include pot holing, mountain biking, horse riding, ballooning and abseiling, while for those happier to enjoy more tranquil pursuits, this is a great area for bird-watching, fishing and golf.
    A 20 minute walk across Biblins Bridge leads into the Forest of Dean, a vast wooded expanse spanning some 27,000 acres; here the quiet observer may be lucky enough to spot one of the resident fallow deer – a reminder of the forest’s origins as a royal hunting ground for Norman kings. Indeed, this is an area steeped in history, where castles and fortifications dot the landscape, mapping out a territory fought over down the ages; nearby Goodrich Castle serves as a prime example. With the Welsh borders and Brecon Beacons to explore in one direction, and the honey-toned Cotswolds in the other, this is a centrally located base for touring this unspoilt region. And after all that fresh air, there are plenty of homely pubs in which to enjoy a hearty meal and sample some of the local ciders in good company. Shop 1 mile.
