Hack the hills with the Bryngwyn Riding Centre, have a cute and cuddly time at the Small Breeds Farm and Owl Centre, or ride the Perrygrove steam railway. Fish for salmon on the Wye, marvel at the Mappa Mundi, or take a high-flying tour of the Black Mountains with Tiger Helicopters.
For the grown-ups
Stock up on fresh local fare at farmers’ markets in Kington, Hereford and Hay-on-Wye. Fish for salmon, trout and grayling on the Wye, or try coarse fishing on the lake for carp, bream, tench and pike. Shoot pretend pigeons with Laser Clay, or 18 holes at Kington Golf Club, the highest in England.
Rent bikes from Drover Cycles in Hay on Wye, or take a four-legged ride at Bryngwyn Riding Centre. Walk the Brecon Beacons, the Black Mountains and Snowdonia, or try more outdoor action with Mountain Mayhem’s offroad buggies, quad-bikes, shooting, paintballing and caving.
Chill out awhile with a little pampering at Wye Leisure Spa or take a high-flying tour of the Black Mountains with Tiger Helicopters. Marvel at the Mappa Mundi at Hereford Cathedral, see the last Capability Brown landscape at Berrington Hall, take a tipple at the Chase Distillery or tour the Monkland Cheese Dairy.
Vulture some culture at The Courtyard, have a flutter at Hereford Racecourse, brave the rock faces or the River Wye rapids, or follow the Cider Route, a wonderful driving tour of the Herefordshire and Wye Valley cider producers.
