Where is it?
We live in Hereford, voted by one of our national newspapers as 'the finest county in England - Where else can you find the prettiest villages in the UK, stunning countryside, amazing pubs, historic churches, ancient woodlands, great walks, a world-class cathedral, fascinating market towns and some of the friendliest people in the world?' http://www.mirror.co.uk/lifestyle/travel/british-breaks/herefordshire-englands-finest-county-everything-8514795 We love the area - its beautiful countryside awards great quality of life. Our house looks onto beautiful rural views and our street is a sought after area of the city - it's a quiet area but everyone is very helpful. If you walk five minutes up the road you are in a wooded area and you can follow footpaths for miles through the countryside. There is a pub two minutes walk away and a shop fifteen minutes walk away. Herefordshire is in the beautiful Wye Valley, a rural area with plenty to do, including swimming, kayaking, cycling and mountain climbing. It is also known for its fantastic produce and you can happily spend your days going from one farm shop/ deli to another tasting the wonderful cheese, meat, cider and beer on offer. We are famous for our Hereford beef. The city of Hereford is charming, a lovely place to wander about. There are lovely old streets to explore but also a shopping centre with six screen cinema. There is a good range of restaurants ranging from the usual chains like Pizza Hut to award winning independent eateries set up by local people. There are also fine dining restaurants including a Michelin starred restaurant. You'll also love our festivals which range from the world famous Hay Literature festival to Newent onion festival!
If you travel out of Hereford, you can either visit the stunning Brecon Beacons, Black Mountains and Wales (we are right on the border). or you can visit cities like Bristol and Birmingham. There are also lots of local castles to visit. Our cathedral contains the Mappa Mundi, one of the oldest maps in the world. Hereford is in the 'Heart of England' area: http://www.visitheartofengland.com
