The Experience

Hereford’s loveliest hotel stands 200 paces from the city’s magnificent 11th-century cathedral, home to the Mappa Mundi. It’s English to its core with a beautiful garden and a waterside restaurant and bar overlooking what remains of the castle moat – in summer you eat on the terrace or down by the water watching ducks glide by. Inside, the lap of luxury: a fine staircase, panelling and a more formal restaurant. Big bedrooms are lavish. Those in the main house are more traditional (the top-floor suite runs all the way along the front of the house); those in the townhouse (a 30-second stroll) are distinctly 21st century. All have a smart country-house feel with beautiful fabrics, super beds, excellent bathrooms with L’Occitane essential oils. Food is seriously good, much of it grown on the owner’s nearby farm; Wye Valley asparagus and smoked salmon or fillet of Hereford beef followed by cardamom custard crème brulée. Come for the best afternoon tea in town. Walk it off along the river Wye, which runs through the park behind. Hereford has lots to offer: The Laskett Gardens, Hereford Racecourse, independent shops, Evensong in the cathedral.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Paula Snow

  • Hereford city is a small city beside the River Wye and surrounded by beautiful countryside. Hereford Cathedral, which is two minutes from the hotel, houses the world-famous Mappa Mundi. An early medieval map drawn by monks with Jerusalem at the centre.
  • Hereford is a bustling city with lots of independent shops, interesting architecture and museums. Castle House has created its own circular City Walk and a River Walk which are historically interesting and take in some beautiful scenery.
  • The Courtyard Theatre always has a busy programme and some great shows. We can always tailor a package for guests who want to go to a show and stay with us.
  • Hereford Cathedral, just up the road, has a full calendar of event. We're happy to help if guests would like to go to Evensong or a cathedral concert. Call reception.
  • The county is awash with fascinating architecture, beautiful gardens and country walks. Hay on Wye is about 40 minutes away from the hotel and full of things to do. More detail can be found at EatSleepLive or Visit Herefordshire.
  • We have created our own Insider's Guide full of interesting things to do in the county and a copy of which will be in your room or available at reception. For best prices always book directly with us either online or call 01432-356321
