Take a trip to one of the many local towns for a farmers’ market or to browse the independent shops. Hay-on-Wye is famed for books and the annual international literary festival, while the market towns of Monmouth, Ledbury, Ross-on-Wye, Kington, and Leominster are all within 25 miles and offer castles and historic monuments to explore.
