Kilpeck – known for its Norman church – has a second string to its bow: a super little country inn with a facelift. It stands on the edge of the village overlooking beautiful fields, ten miles south of Hereford. Outside, smart white walls sparkle in the sun. Inside: old stone, slate floors and a warm contemporary feel. Find darts in the locals' bar, alongside the daily papers and a smouldering fire, and original beams, candle lanterns and painted panelling in the airy restaurant. Dig into the sort of food you'd hope to find in a country inn: River Exe mussels in a cider and sage cream sauce with hand cut chips; shepherd's pie, green beans, redcurrant and red wine jus. Rooms are above, crisp and comfortable. Named after local rivers, all have countryside views, plus pocket sprung mattresses, Egyptian cotton sheets and cloud-soft duvets. Bathrooms are spotless and sparkling. It's as local as possible and seriously green, what with low food miles, hi-spec insulation and a rainwater tank. Walkers rejoice: the Black Mountains and Offa's Dyke are close.
