Hereford is one of the oldest Cities in the UK with Hereford Cathedral being home to the Mappa Mundi and Chained Library dating back to 17th Century and containing one of the earliest 8th Century books.
For antiques, the town of Leominster to the North of Hereford has several antique shops and boutiques to browse around and further North is the famous food town of Ludlow with its ancient castle situated in the town centre.
To the East is Ledbury, a very pretty market town with plenty of interesting shops and cafes. A brilliant source for unusual gifts and momentoes.
Herefordshire is very much renowned for its Black and White Trail with an array of Tudor and medieval cottages. If you like a tipple, The Cider Trail is for you, taking you on a flavoursome tour of the countryside. For music buffs, The Elgar Route is just a stones throw and includes the magnificent Malvern Hills.
We have one excellent public house within a few minutes walk, which provides good pub food. The Crown & Anchor in Lugwardine, dating back to the 17th Century. Gail and Charlie will ensure you have a very pleasant evening.
From Hereford: follow all the signs for Ledbury bringing you to the A438. Continue out of Hereford, across the Lugg Flats, over the Lugg bridge and into Lugwardine. The church is on the right and Lumber Lane is a turning left immediately opposite the Church. Drive along Lumber Lane for approx 1/4 mile until the road forks and an unadopted road forks to the left. Take the unadopted road to the left and then follow the drive straight ahead of you. Don’t follow the track to the left. There is plenty of parking adjacent to the house.
