Herefordshire’s incredibly beautiful landscape and countryside is home to a wealth of stunning gardens, country houses and castles with food and farming being the lifeblood of the county. The Royal Welsh Show held at Builth Wells is the pinnacle event in the Agricultural calendar and showcases local horticulture, crafts, countryside sports, shopping, food and drink.

Voted by many as Warner’s premier establishment, HOLME LACY HOUSE is a magnificent Grade I listed mansion set amid 20 acres of mature landscaped parkland just outside the riverside town of Ross-on-Wye. Featuring stately drawing rooms, a sweeping staircase and ornate ceilings, Holme Lacy was mentioned in the Domesday Book and is the former family seat of the Earls of Chesterfield. The superb oak panelled dining room offers only the best in seasonal cuisine whilst the Courtyard Bistro combines contemporary architectural styling with a warm relaxed atmosphere. There is entertainment on every evening. All of the en suite bedrooms feature satellite tv, hairdryer, telephone and hospitality tray. Please note all the bedrooms are located near to the main building – a short walk is required to access reception, the restaurant and Leisure Club. A passenger lift serves all bedrooms.
