Foodie experiences, cider sleepovers & colourful walks

Celebrate the harvest season in Herefordshire! Autumn is a very special time to visit  - see the tractors bring in the harvest of hops, apples and potatoes, breathe in the apple-scented air and enjoy the landscape as it blazes with colour. 

It's foodie heaven! There's a host of seasonal things to see, do and taste. Watch artisan cider makers press fruit, tour our gorgeous vineyards, forage for mushrooms, sample award-winning ciders and drink fresh hops green beer. Our glorious gastropubs will, as always, offer a warm welcome and menus inspired by local produce.  Afterwards, enjoy walks in our orchards, woods and gardens which will be alive with fiery reds, burning oranges and vivid yellows. 




Herefordshire looks radiant in the autumn, glorious golds, russets and reds create an explosion of colour. It’s an irresistible invitation to venture outdoors! Meanwhile, there's special seasonal foodie experiences to enjoy, including tours, tastings and orchard strolls.
