The perfect base for a walking getaway.
If you are a keen walker, or even just like a short stroll, then Herefordshire is the place for you. With some of the most beautiful country walks and breath-taking views, from riverside strolls to hill top yomps where you feel you could touch the clouds; you will not be short of places to explore. Whether you just want to meander through the blackcurrant fields and apple orchards that are right on your door step when stay in our properties, and say hello to the local wildlife on your way around, or whether you want to make a day of it and really trek through Herefordshire, the hilly Welsh borders or the Wye valley, you won’t be short on options. Most of our properties have cosy fires to snuggle in front of in autumn and winter, open fire places or log burners. In summer all of our properties have beautiful outdoor spaces for alfresco dining, or just taking in the fresh air.
We can even take the hassle out of trying to find the best walks, by providing you with a map of walks around our 700 acre estate (up to two hour walks) or of the best and most loved local walks further afield. Field Cottage is a walker’s paradise when it comes to location, as you really can step out the door and venture straight out, as well as enjoy the most breath-taking views from the property, the best one being from the bath tub – ideal after a long ramble. Our other properties are also just as idyllic with The Sherriff’s being perfect for large groups to venture out from. Our other properties (The Colloquy, The Lodge, The Forge and Gardeners Cottage) are all located in the same courtyard, and so all have access to public footpaths after a very short stroll down the lane.
With several walking festivals throughout the year, which you can discover at http://www.walkingfestival.com/even-more-walking providing you with an even greater opportunity to explore.
Explore Herefordshire and enjoy a slice of cake or two along the way.
Not to mention we are in the heart of the black and white village trail, so if you are up for a tour of our villages, a short stop in each destination and want to stay local then this is perfect for you. There is something different to see in each village, from our treasured black and white buildings, rich history and beautiful churches it is a really lovely exploration day – with some chocolate box coffee shops and tea rooms along the way to include, The Green Bean in Weobley, The Steppes in Pembridge, The Post office in Kingsland and Sallys Pantry in Kington – but there are so many more to discover.
A walk with a delicious purpose.
If you’re a foodie, then there are lots of walks that can start and end at some delicious eateries, serving some of the best food in the UK, using local produce. Which include a walk from Kington to Gladestry (2 hours), to a lovely pub called The Oak, which serves your traditional pub grub. If you fancy a riverside stroll then you could plan your venture around The Riverside at Aymestrey, which is a really cosy restaurant serving really hearty local dishes, or if its more fine dining you are after then head to The Stagg in Titley, just 3 miles from the properties. The Harp in Old Radnor offers glorious views and comfort food in abundance. If you are up for more than just an afternoon meander, you can jump on the Offas Dyke path and really work up an appetite, like wise Mortimer’s Forest or a trek over Harvest Ridge also offer keen walkers some really beautiful scenery and the chance to really work up an appetite.
