Introducing Herefordshire

An oasis of tranquillity, rural Herefordshire is scattered with quintessentially English villages of black-and-white timbered charm, a cherished sense of community and well-developed appreciation of the quiet life. Though it’s challenging to get around, the effort is rewarded with bucolic landscapes of lush fields, twisting lanes and more than enough leafy orchards to whet your appetite for the county’s famous ciders. The River Wye wiggles provocatively through the county, tempting canoeists from across the country. County capital Hereford hosts the superb medieval Mappa Mundi, and tip-toeing into Wales is renowned kingdom of books, Hay-on-Wye.
