Spring staycations

Chase hereford

Visit the Blossom County

This spring, plan a pretty staycation in Herefordshire, the blossom county. It’s a fleeting moment  - only six weeks - but it is an unmissable springtime spectacle!

Thousands of fruit trees bloom with frothy clouds of pink and white petals, starting at the end of March. Perfect for picnics and afternoon ambles. 

Enjoy orchard tours & tastings at craft cider producers, walk and cycle along blossom-lined trails and tour the picture-perfect black and white villages.



Our county is one big orchard! We have over 15,000 acres of orchards, producing over half of the UK's cider. Every spring, thousands of fruit trees explode with delicate pink and white petals. Come to Herefordshire for an uplifting dose of Mother Nature's positivity.


Estates & Community Orchards

For blossom-filled walking trails and picnics under the trees visit our historic country estates and friendly community orchards.
