Visiting Herefordshire

Herefordshire looks radiant in the autumn…

Glorious golds, russets and reds create an autumnal explosion of colour across Herefordshire’s landscape. It’s an irresistible invitation to venture outdoors - pull on your walking boots and enjoy nature at her very finest. And take a deep breath because our fresh air is delightfully apple-scented during the harvest.

As you wind your way through the countryside, you’ll stumble upon pretty black-and-white villages, celebrated for their historic timber-framed buildings, and market towns alive with independent spirit.

Naturally, in a place where apples and farming take centre-stage, the food and drink is rather special here too. Our restaurants and pubs pride themselves on making the most of our prime local produce and there’s a thriving scene for fans of artisan cider and beer.

Great Local Food from The Green Dragon

Great Local Food With An Apple Twist

Seasonal menus take maximum advantage of Herefordshire’s excellent produce. As you travel around you’ll see our striking Hereford cattle, crops of everything from potatoes to hops, and, of course, our celebrated orchards. It’s perfectly field to fork.

This autumn, The Green Dragon Hotel proposes organic pork cutlet from master butcher Neil Powell, served with red cabbage slaw, Dunkertons Cider burnt apple puree and a side of roasted onion, squash, pumpkin, and granola pork crackling. After dinner, head to the sumptuous Offa Bar to sample an Orchards Cup cocktail crafted with Penrhos apple and elderflower gin.

Fabulous Accommodation with Orles Barn

Fabulous Accommodation

Our accommodation is as wonderfully characterful as our people – stay at foodie pubs, half-timbered hotels, cosy cottages and farm stays or get back to nature and go glamping.

Nestled in the picturesque Wye Valley is Orles Barns Hotel, a 17th-Century barn where each of the four charming rooms is named after a locally-grown apple variety. Interestingly, a farm was sited here back in the 1400s and the former apple store still survives today. Open fires, oak beams and a warm welcome await visitors.
