This is a beautiful drive and some wonderful buildings and gardens. A favourite of ours for many years. Sadly Herefordshire roads are now in such a terrible condition that you really need a heavy duty 4x4 to do this trial.

Spent a good many hours following the trail, avoiding Leominster. Lots of the villages and black and white buildings are very small but for us Pembridge and Eardisland stood out. You do need to get out of the car, especially in these two places, and...More

We did enjoy most of this trail, although some of the villages listed had no black and white buildings but perhaps just a church. Stopping to park and capture the atmosphere was difficult in a few, but we thoroughly enjoyed it, and managed to take...More

We were at staying in Weobley, one of the villages on the trail. We followed the "prescribed" route in reverse - first to Dilwyn then Eardisland, Pembridge, Kington and Eardisley. All are interesting in their own ways but some are definitely better than others. For...More

This trail starts in Leominster, Herefordshire's largest market town. As well as the many attractive villages - our favourites were Weobley and Pembridge - there are suggested short side trips to places of interest. However, don't bother with Dunkertons Cider. Production has been moved to...More
