Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Hereford

Hereford holiday cottages offer easy access to Herefordshire’s tranquil countryside and the option of wandering into Hereford's historic city centre. Hereford lies on the banks of the River Wye, 16 miles east of the Welsh border and 24 miles southwest of Worcester. This thriving community has been Herefordshire’s centre for agriculture for centuries and is still home to an important cattle market. As you explore the city centre, you’ll discover independent cafes and delicatessens serving the freshest produce from the surrounding countryside. Unique shops, cosy pubs and an incredible range of attractions ensure that there’s no shortage of things to do on self-catering holidays in Hereford.

Take a stroll along the banks of the River Wye before visiting some of the city’s stunning historic landmarks. Don’t miss The Old House, a magnificent black and white building in the heart of High Town, which is now a museum about life in the Jacobean era. The cathedral is a must-see with the Mappa Mundi, the beautiful Medieval map of the world and the famous Chained Library. Nearby, an excellent museum is housed in a Gothic Victorian building. The Cider Museum is also worth a visit, providing an insight into the history of one of the city’s best-loved exports.
