Holidays in Herefordshire

Although it may have ‘city’ status, Hereford has a laid-back market town feel. Free of urban skyscrapers, it’s brimming with historic buildings and bordered by lush countryside.

It’s here you’ll find some of the UK’s best produce, from meat and vegetables to cheese and cider. It even has a cider museum and plenty of cider shops to help you sample the local goods.

These cottages are dotted around the city and in its rolling countryside beyond. They sit close to the Wye Valley, the Shropshire Hills and Hay-on-Wye which hosts the popular Hay Festival.
