The Key to Happiness…

Welcome back and happy New Year to you all, we hope you had a magical Christmas and a fabulous New Year!

The festive season is beautiful and it’s wonderful to have time off celebrating with family and friends, but it can also be tiring. So, whilst you all settle back into reality and start to make your New Year’s Resolutions, think about this…

“The key to happiness, is spending your money on experiences rather than possessions.”

It’s true! Recent studies show that people that spend their money on experiences are much happier long-term.

Local Tipples for Your Herefordshire Party

Everybody knows that other than the company, the second most important element of a party is the drinks menu! So, if you’re staying at one of our party houses this Christmas, rather than stocking up before you head to Herefordshire, why not add some local tipples to your party instead!?

Herefordshire is home to many delicious drinks producers, from ciders and wines to liqueurs and fresh juices. Here are a few of our favourites…

Autumn Staycations in Beautiful Herefordshire

Summer has finally come to a close and the daylight hours are beginning to fade, but there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to get just as much enjoyment out of autumn. In fact, we think it’s a great time to enjoy a few days away, especially in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside.

Hereford Indie Food Festival

As you all know, we’re huge foodies here at The Whittern Estate! We take every opportunity to try the very best produce in the Three Counties and further afield where we can too!

Our Favourite Herefordshire Restaurants

Herefordshire is foodie heaven and in the past 12 months we’ve seen the city's restaurant scene increase rapidly. So, if you’re visiting us at White Heron Properties this summer, we encourage you to venture out into the surrounding areas to sample the delicious local cuisine on offer. There’s something for every appetite, from steak to burgers and roast dinners to stone-baked pizza.

Reasons to stay in the UK this year!

We may be a little biased, but here at White Heron Properties we strongly believe that nothing beats a holiday in the UK. It reconnects to when we were children and would spend many happy days on a British beach! There are some many undiscovered and beautiful places to visit. To help you we have compiled a list of reasons why we’re all about staycations and staying on home turf this year:

Food Festivals 2016

We hope that spring has now sprung and that summer is just around the corner. Being foodies, summer means just one thing for us, food festivals! The great thing about a food festival is that it brings together all the very best produce in one space!

We love good food here at White Heron Properties, and we always encourage our visitors to go to the county’s best pubs and restaurants (our favourites are here). But food festivals are a real must if you’re staying with us throughout the spring/summer months. So here are some dates for you to put in your foodie calendar:
