Intro

Touring this 59-mile circular route will take you along shady backroads and the River Wye, as you visit some of the region’s best cider-makers. Travel from Hereford to Little Dewchurch, Hoarwithy and Ross-on-Wye, then onwards to Much Marcle, Ledbury and Bromyard, finishing back in the county city.
