You could easily spend your days exploring the grounds of The Hideout, going on various woodland trails and foraging for goods, but if you did want to head out, there is also plenty to discover nearby. Herefordshire boasts a variety of wild landscapes…Canoe the River Wye, go on a countryside ramble or explore its winding country lanes by bike. For independent shops, delicious eateries and a whole load of history, head into the Cathedral city of Hereford. Settled on the River Wye, have a picnic by the water or marvel at the golden-stone Cathedral. Visit the Old Market for open-air shopping, dining and cinema or head to The Courtyard Hereford for theatre, comedy and art workshops. Hereford is also home to the Chained Library, the very last of its kind, which is definitely worth a visit!
Alternatively, stroll out of the city towards Breinton springs, this leads you through an apple orchard, where you can visit The Museum of Cider. Or why not stop at Monkland Cheese Dairy for a cheese tasting tour, pick up some delicious cheese, chutneys and local jams to later be enjoyed with a glass of your favourite! The National Trust house of Berrington Hall, The Weir Garden and Brobury House should also be added to your itinerary. Or pack up a picnic and make your way to the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or the Brecon Beacons - both making for unforgettable day trips.
