Find cottages in HerefordshireVisit 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.
