Welcome to Herefordshire...
Love the flavours of the land. Love Herefordshire.
Apples. Yes apples. Herefordshire orchards are responsible for some of the best cider in the world and you can enjoy the orchards in which they are grown by foot, bicycle or car.
If that is not enough the gardens that flank country houses and beautiful villages and cottages are in their abundance in Herefordshire, and with a reputation for fine food that many choose to test in any number of café, bistros and traditional road side inns.
The historic city of Hereford has retained its feel of a bustling market town, with the Norman cathedral, holding 'Mappa Mundi', the oldest surviving map of its type in the world.
