The month of May kick-starts my favourite season… food festival season! There’s nothing better than sampling the county’s finest produce. So being the foodie that I am, I’ve put together a guide for the top local foodie spots throughout summer ‘17.
Herefordshire's Hidden Treasures
Whether it’s a boutique restaurant tucked away down a cobbled street, a beautiful walking trail in the countryside, or a stunning landscape by the river, Herefordshire is full of many hidden treasures. If you’re visiting us this season, make sure you check them out.
King Street Kitchen
Every relaxing weekend away starts with brunch at an independent cafe. Enjoy their Little Hereford Madame, washed down with a Clipper organic tea. The Salted Caramel Brownie makes this little gem worth a visit too!
Summertime in Herefordshire
Herefordshire and its surrounding counties are always a pleasure in the summertime, whether you’re up on the hills, down in the woodlands or at one of the many fantastic attractions. Hopefully we’ll have lots of sunshine this summer to explore what this wonderful county has to offer. Here are some of my favourites
Happy Valentine's Day
The month of love is finally here, so I wanted to wish you all a very Happy Valentine’s Day! Whether you’re single or spoken for, it’s always nice to remind your nearest and dearest just how much you love them.
Some people find it difficult to hunt down the perfect gift for their loved one, so we’re going to make it easy for you! Roses and chocolate are always well received, but they can be a little cliché. Instead, why not book a romantic trip to The Whittern Estate. We still have availability at some of our smaller luxury cottages on our 700-acre picturesque estate.
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…
Christmas in Herefordshire
I can’t quite believe I’m saying it, but it’s that time of the year again… Christmas! We love the festive season, so if you’ve booked to stay with us and enjoy a Herefordshire Christmas, we want to make sure you have the most magical time. Here are just a few ideas for you and your loved one, to inspire you:
Santa’s Grotto @ Eastnor
22nd November - 22nd December
Discover your inner child by taking a drive through the Eastnor Estate, overcoming the obstacles to meet Father Christmas in person! A Land Rover experience for all to enjoy!
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.
