The Local Area
The local area has a range of things to offer its visitors. As previously mentioned, Presteigne is one the nearest place for amenities to the park, at just over a 5-minute drive away. It is a unique market town, with a bustling high street which offers a great range of shops, restaurants, pubs, and tea rooms. Not only does it have much to offer on the food and drink front, but it is known as a little town which ‘always has something going on’. The town holds The Presteigne Music Festival, which is a prestigious and internationally renowned event offering spectators the chance to experience Irish music, African drums, French Canadian percussionists, and much more.
Leominster is another market town on the Welsh border, under a 30-minutes’ drive from the park. The fascinating old town is full of history and quaint antique shops, a museum, a priory, and a grange to explore. Packed with independent coffee shops and eateries, you really could spend all day discovering new things to see and do at Leominster. On top of all of these, Leominster is a great place for access to public transport such as buses and trains, and also supermarkets and petrol stations, should you need one. Also, if you are an avid golf player, or just looking for a fun activity, Leominster has an 18-hole or a 9-hole course at ‘The Grove’ which is highly recommended.
Slightly further afield is the castle town of Ludlow, which is idyllically set on a hill above the River Teme. It has been said that Ludlow is an experience like no other, like entering another town, one with a much slower and more peaceful pace of life. You could take a gentle walk around Whitcliffe Common whilst admiring the views over the castle and the town.
Furthermore, around 40 minutes from the park there is the city of Hereford. If you are interested in exploring the history of the city, an educational day out can be had at Hereford Cathedral and theMappa Mundi’ which is said to be a medieval map of the known world, dating back to the 1300s! Following this, there are some beautiful river walks and cafes to finish off your day.
Alternatively, if you are looking for something a little more active than exploring the nearby treasures of towns and cities, there is of course more active options to be found at the Brecon Beacons or the Elan Valley, as mentioned above.
