The Herefordshire region
A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was “the quietest place under the sun” and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.
Wigmore is a delightful village that occupies a privileged position in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in close proximity to the border of Shropshire, herefordshire and Wales. This area is one of beautiful woodland, unspoilt countryside and old, picturesque black and white villages with a peaceful atmosphere. Wigmore offers some convenient amenities to its visitors including two pubs, a shop and a garage, and a little further away you will find the many visitor attractions and shops, pubs and restaurants of the lovely historic market towns of Ludlow, Hereford and Leominster. This beautiful and diverse area has so much to offer to couples and families alike and is a wonderful destination for a relaxing break.

"Relaxing, away from it all cottage, surrounded by beautiful scenery, as well as an abundance of wildlife."
On the day of our arrival at the cottage we followed the directions through the woods and up a long lane where the driveway to our destination awaited our eager senses.
The sun was shining and the trees were throwing off their green overcoats to reveal the golds, reds and orange shades that heralds the arrival of Autumn. The cottage did not disappoint and although it was in close proximity to the owners farmhouse, this did not encroach on the level of seclusion and privacy that we sought and received.
We were greeted by one of the owners of the property, who was doing a spot of late season gardening, and made to feel instantly welcome. After being shown into the cottage (where a pot of tea and some biscuits were awaiting us as well as some gorgeous roses with a card wishing us a Happy honeymoon) we were left to take stock of our temporary abode and to explore the cosy rooms that were to be ours for the week.
First impressions were excellent as every room was spotlessly clean, well furnished and inviting. The gardens were beautifully manicured and landscaped and surrounded by lush hills of ever changing hues of varying shades of autumn. There was also a wild life pond with, as we were to discover, dragonflies flitting lazily among the reeds and other various fauna and flora. Sparrows flew in abundance amongst the trees in the orchard that the cottage overlooks and a bird table placed pride of place next to the outdoor furniture provided us with many hours of entertainment as we watched various species of birds arrive to sample the delights on offer to them whilst Pied wagtails hopped about on the roof of the adjoining barn searching for late season insects. (Bring birdseed)!
The cottage also comes equipped with a wood burning stove which on chilly evenings was a delightfully cosy way to spend an evening just staring at the flames with a glass or two of wine whilst listening to music (or the owls in the distance). Seeing the night sky if and when we managed to tear ourselves away from the woodburner was also on occasion a sight to behold without the usual inclusion of light pollution.
We would definitely return to this haven of tranquility in the future and were sad to leave its calming presence on our departure.
On a practical level, it is very near to lots of lovely local walks as well as to towns and villages that are easy to get to either by car or if you feel like shaking off the cares of modern life by stretching your legs, as Wigmore is only a couple of miles away. There are wonderful pubs to sample as well as local cider, beers and food to enjoy; what could be better than a few well chosen local supplies, and a well stocked fire - if you prefer to stay at 'home' in what very quickly becomes a bolt hole from the world...
