Self-catering holidays in Whitchurch are hard to beat if you want to make the most of Herefordshire’s spectacular countryside, scattered with magnificent stately homes and gardens. A stone’s throw from your Whitchurch holiday cottage, the Doward Hills are famous for their dramatic footpaths, which meander through thick undergrowth to remote prehistoric caves, limestone quarries and limekilns. Just a mile eastward, on the banks of the River Wye, Symonds Yat is a picturesque village where canoeing along the river rapids is an exhilarating experience. Symonds Yat Rock overlooks an incredible gorge popular among climbers and a good spot for watching peregrine falcons and ospreys. High in the Lords Woods, overlooking the Seven Sisters Rock, Arthur’s Cave is one of England’s only surviving limestone caves, believed to date back to 80,000 BC. A short drive south on the A40 from Whitchurch will bring you to Monmouth, an ancient market town with an iconic 13th-century gatehouse bridge and a remarkable calendar of cultural events.
