The Cider Circuit Trails

Herefordshire on the go with these wonderful trails

Herefordshire looks radiant in the autumn, with the hues of foliage colliding with the colours of apples and pears ready for harvest.

Our two new Cider Circuit Trails are the perfect way to visit apple and cider producers, enjoying picturesque hamlets and scenery as you go.

Great for keen cyclists. Or meander at a more leisurely pace and plan a stay in a market town or village.

Northern Cider Circuit

The Newton Wonder

North of the city of Hereford stretches an undulating swathe of farmland, orchards and forested hills, studded with renowned ‘Black-and-White Villages’ – settlements whose streets are lined with the traditional timber-framed houses so typical of the region.

Complete a 49-mile loop from Hereford to visit a succession of alluring hamlets, historic sites and passionate producers creating fine ciders, perries and juices to refresh thirsty cyclists. Please call ahead to check opening times.

Southern Cider Circuit

The Redstreak

The ancient apple and pear orchards of southern Herefordshire, some of them well over two centuries old, are lovingly harvested by local producers to ferment spectacular ciders and perries in traditional and innovative styles.

Cycle 59 undulating miles down shady backroads and alongside the meanders of the River Wye on a rewarding route visiting some of the region’s finest cider-makers, or prune your pedalling to 31.5 miles by taking the train back to Hereford from Ledbury. Please call ahead to check opening times.
