Herefordshire for holidays in self-catering cottages
Herefordshire and the Wye Valley Herefordshire is one of England's best kept secrets. A rural county with beautiful countryside, famed for its cattle and cider. Herefordshire boasts charming villages ( some black and white), friendly inns, quaint market towns and the ancient City of Hereford, and it's mighty Norman Cathedral, where visitors can scan the 'Mappa Mundi'; a 13th century cartographer's interpretation of the world.
If you are looking for a self catering holiday in Herefordshire, a few country cottages are highlighted below. For the full listing though click the link for:
There is a forty mile 'Black and White Village Trail' that takes visitors by road through a string of pretty villages with black and white houses. Each village offers a place to stop and look around. There are tea shops and pubs aplenty, so they're ideal for a pub crawl or tea shop crawl - depending on your personal preference. And the scenery en-route in this fruit and hop growing region is rural and pleasing to the eye.
Ross-on-Wye, a pretty market town perched on a sandstone cliff, high above a loop of the magnificent river Wye is a must to visit. The famous beauty spot of Symonds Yat, the Forest of Dean, Ledbury and the Malverns are also close by.
Herefordshire is an ideal county for walkers, cyclists the energetic and the leisurely who prefer to enjoy the views. A county not to be missed!
