Best Western have 1 hotels in Herefordshire
Herefordshire is one of the most sparsely populated and rural counties in the whole country. The land's predominant agricultural usage especially for its fruit and cider production and breeding of the local Hereford Cattle, has shaped the landscape into a beautiful patchwork of fields and woodlands, crisscrossed by gentle brooks and trails. Our hotel in Herefordshire is centrally located in the charming little market town of Leominster, for maximum access to the surrounding countryside and Hereford, the county town.
Town and city breaks in Herefordshire
Hereford is the only city in the county. The city is easily accessible from our Herefordshire hotel and is the perfect city break from your time in the countryside. There are plenty of things to do in the city, whether you fancy visiting a historic landmark such as Berrington Hall, a neoclassical country house built in the Eighteenth Century for Thomas Harley, or the ancient toll bridge at Whitney-on-Wye. The city, famous for beer and cider production has a great eating and drinking scene with plenty of local and unique flavours to try and enjoy. The Orange Tree, the city's premier Steak restaurant, serves a dazzling menu showcasing the local and famous Herefordshire Beef with a mixture of delicious side platters and sauces, all in the shadow of the striking city Cathedral. For something a little more relaxing, why not take a day trip to one of the country villages or hamlets and enjoy a hearty pub lunch of well-cooked, local ingredients, before enjoying one of the many walks on offer in this glorious part of the world.
Holidays in the Herefordshire countryside
The country has been described as 'the land of milk and honey,'why not see if you agree? Heading out of your Herefordshire hotel for a little walk will reveal endless acres of unspoilt countryside sprinkled with peaceful hamlets and farms. The county is famous for its fresh and beautiful produce. The chain of eateries, pubs and restaurants not only provide a relaxing setting but also outstanding food. A stay in our hotel in Herefordshire means you are within striking distance of the 67-acre Queenswood Country Park and Arboretum, full of exotic, remarkable and rare trees and plants. There are plenty of stately homes and parks and gardens to see, perhaps the most famous of which is Hergest Court which was established over 100 years ago and has 50 acres of stretching lawns decorated with magnificent trees.
Attractions in Herefordshire
The county is full of trails and paths to exhibit the county's bewitching views and landscapes. Surely, one of the best ways to spend your time here is to walk through the wildernesses, parallel to one of the streams before having a picnic under a wise, old oak tree. For something a bit different, however, why not spend an afternoon at the Kingfisher Trout Lake, a great place for fathers and sons to bond take in peaceful and beautiful setting. The location has been dubbed a gem in Herefordshire. A similarly different way to spend an afternoon is llama trekking through South Herefordshire. Golden Valley Llamas first of all shows you how to feed, groom and play with these charming and gentle animals. A photo of you and the family with a llama in the wild countryside will really throw off friends and family. The walks and connection with nature is what brings this county to life. Your Herefordshire hotel will feel all the more homely after exploring the fertile lands. Book with us now for a truly different UK break.
