The Whittern Estate is located in North Herefordshire, near the beautiful village of Lyonshall. Herefordshire is famed for its pastoral beauty and is rich in history and culture. A "Foodie" county, this is a real field to fork area so you can enjoy the produce which is close at hand.

Why not visit one of the many PYO farms, enjoy a lunch in an historic local pub and visit the annual food festivals to celebrate all that is good to eat and drink. You'll find plenty of inspiration on our pages: Food and Drink, Explore and Festivals & Events.

As a member of Visit Herefordshire our team will always be happy to suggest some great activities, events and tourist spots to make your stay perfect. 

We have also included a list of everything within our properties (along with our comprehensive floorplans) so you don't need to pack the kitchen sink

We look forward to welcoming you to Herefordshire soon!
