Close By

We are equidistant between the country market towns of Ross on Wye and Ledbury. Malvern (good theatre) is half an hour away.

Dymock is home to the “Dymock poets“.  Visit the exhibition in the church and walk all or part of the Poet’s Path.  Especially lovely in daffodil time.  We can lend you bikes to explore the local lanes.

The historic church of St Mary’s in Kempley has a fine collection of original wall paintings.

Explore the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean.  We are close to the Welsh Borders with its historic castles: Skenfrith, Grosmont and Goodrich.

We are within an hour’s drive of the cathedral cities of Hereford, Worcester and Gloucester, and about 40 minutes’ drive from Cheltenham.

Herefordshire’s Black and White village trail, a 40-mile drive leading west from Leominster, was described as ‘unrivalled in England’ by Alec Clifton-Taylor.
