Recommended Walks


Recommended Walks in England and Wales are best followed using the standard Ordnance Survey maps.  They are some of the finest maps in the World and are not subject to loss of power or "no signal"!

The Lyonshall area of north west Herefordshire is criss-crossed by public footpaths, bridleways and minor roads, as well as two good 'A' Class roads for easy access.  In the North of the Parish it links to "The Offa's Dyke Path". "Mortimer Trail' and "The Herefordshire Trail".  The Parish boasts a number of good and 'historic' B&Bs and one old "Pub" in a good central location.  The "Royal George Inn" dates from late Elizabethan times and was originally a Cider House.  The 'postcode' for the geographical centre of the Parish of Lyonshall is is HR5 3LL.

The Parish can boast its own "Offa's Dyke Spur" (which is in excellent condition in parts), a Norman church (much restored in Victorian times), a Norman stone built castle ( a 'Romantic Ruin' now), numerous medieval dwellings and some fine 'Black & White' houses.  The countryside and cider apple orchards are beautiful in the ever changing seasons.

We are happy to recommend walks, within the local area, to suit every age and taste and we can advise on accommodation and bookings etc on a 'no cost' basis.  We are happy to produce schematic, tailor made maps [see above] to explain a recommended walk as well as custom made leaflets showing photographs and giving descriptions of the sights to be seen en route.  These can be despatched electronically or by Royal Mail on request.  For more information on Lyonshall and its area we recommend its Village Website:
