Whether you are looking to purchase some unique handmade gifts or sample delicious, local produce, Herefordshire and the surrounding counties are not short of winter events this year.
There are so many to choose from, so we've compiled our favourite top 5 for you to visit whilst staying at White Heron Properties during the festive season:
Kington Winter Food Festival
Just a short trip down the road, our most local town is hosting a winter food festival for you to enjoy. With free parking, admission and some of the best producers in the county in attendance (including our very own British Cassis) it is sure to be a lovely way to start the month. It is located in Kington market hall and more information can be found here: http://www.kingtonfoodfestival.co.uk/winter-exhibitors.html
Ludlow Medieval Christmas Fayre
25 - 26/11/17
The end of November welcomes Ludlow's Medieval Fayre. With 100 stalls selling food, gifts and other treats, you are sure to come away with a full shopping bag. There are also lots of family friendly events happening during the two day event to keep the kids occupied. We definitely recommend a visit to Ludlow during your stay; it' looks beautifully festive in the run-up to Christmas. Find more information on the fayre here: http://www.ludlowmedievalchristmas.co.uk
Abergavenny Christmas Fair
Bought to you by the same people as the incredible food festival in September, they are back with a smaller, but by no means inferior event.
