Grab a picnic and make the most of the great outdoors this summer.
Eat Sleep Live Herefordshire, the county’s leading destination marketing organisation, have curated a list of the nine most spectacular picnic locations across Herefordshire, highlighting the abundance of natural beauty the county has to offer.
Herefordshire is famous for its mouth-watering cider, with over half the UK’s cider made in the county, but that’s not all it has to offer. Bordered by the Black Mountains, the Malvern Hills and the Brecon Beacons, Herefordshire is the perfect place to explore the great outdoors.
Locals and visitors can discover incredible panoramic views at the 1,000 acre Hergest Ridge common, a popular destination for local gentry in Victorian times. For some of the best views in Herefordshire, Garway Hill offers a breath-taking vantage over May Hill, The Sugar Loaf, Hay Bluff and Skirrid.
The glorious Symonds Yat, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is an unmissable spot to enjoy a picnic, a walk or to watch the wildlife and canoeists go by. Bodenham Lake is an idyllic place to escape from the hustle and bustle, with its beautiful orchards and peaceful lakeside meadows.
For those who enjoy a challenge to work up their appetite, a hike up to Wyndcliff and Eagle’s Nest viewpoints will be rewarded with a spectacular view across the Wye and Severn rivers, Chepstow and the Cotswolds. For a slower pace, enjoy a stroll through Lea & Paget’s Wood, situated in the pretty village of Fownhope, a serene spot to enjoy a picnic surrounded by wildlife.
