The county of Herefordshire is a patchwork blanket of fields full of crops and animals as the majority of the county is based around its heritage of farming ancestors. Staying in one of the Self Catering Cottages in Herefordshire is a great way to relive the history of the county and explore the stunning landscapes.
There are many villages spread about the area, almost all of them small and quaint, where everyone knows everyone and there is a real sense of community spirit, and they always have their doors open to holidaymakers visiting them.
For the people staying in one of the Self Catering Cottages in Herefordshire there is a lot to do no matter what kind of person they are (as most people tend to go away in groups to enjoy the surroundings together). There are lots of routes that walkers can take through the fields and pastures, and the same with cycle tracks. There are also lots of opportunities for people to go horseback riding or try their hand at a range of other sports and leisure pursuits.
However for those people who crave the excitement and thrills then there are also activities such as rock climbing up cliffs and canoeing down rivers. For people who like to have a more relaxed and less active holiday there are also lots of things to see and do, such as exploring the Wye Valley which is full of wildlife and natural beauty, some of it exclusive to the county of Herefordshire!
As well as the activities and the natural sites that the county of Herefordshire has to offer, there are also lots of towns and villages which are also easily accessible from any of the Self Catering Cottages in Herefordshire. There is of course the city of Hereford itself which houses an impressive cathedral and also a lot of restaurants, cafes and shops for people to spend their time in.
As well as the main city there is also the town of Ross-on-Wye which is the centre for tourist information in the county and homes a lot shops along the historic high street, covered in Tudor style homes and buildings for people to admire while doing their shopping or eating out in the street.
