Holidays in Bromyard

Known as the ‘town of festivals’, Bromyard hosts an event to suit virtually everybody

Views of the River Wye

Bromyard is Herefordshire’s most unspoilt market town. The High Street is full of privately owned shops, cafes, pubs and other businesses. Apart from one branded supermarket, there is not a single national chain to be seen!

Bromyard Downs and Bringsty Common are the highlights of what locals call the ‘Jewel in the Downs’ which provides beautiful open spaces. 500 acres of common land provide room to walk and go horse riding, and the town is on the doorstep of the Three Rivers Ride, a 60-mile trail that’s a part of the National Bridle Route Network.

Long-distance riders can also reach the Brecon Beacons on the trail that follows the rivers Lugg, Wye and Usk, in part. A bit further afield visitors can find the Malverns, Worcester, Hereford and Ludlow, all of which are within good driving distance.

Bromyard is a great base for a visit to The Marches, an undefined area of the England/Wales borderlands that spreads into Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Powys, and offers much in its own right. You can find many peaceful places to fish or go for long strolls in and around the town.

The Malvern Hills

Known as the ‘town of festivals’, visitors to Bromyard are never short of things to do. At the time of writing, there are currently ten festivals organised throughout the year. Chief amongst them is the Herefordshire Marmalade Festival, that revolves around all things to do with this lovely breakfast preserve - Paddington Bear would be proud!

Bromyard is also the host to International Town Crier’s Festival. The competition takes place over the first May Bank Holiday. Competitors attend from all over the world. For fun, there is the Scarecrow Festival too, which children adore.

"Bromyard is close to many of Herefordshire’s major visitor attractions…"

The rest include The Speed Festival, Nozstock, which is the summer big stage music event, a sausage and cider event, the Bromyard Gala, a folk music festival, a hops festival, and two Christmas festivals. Virtually all tastes and sensibilities are accounted for.

Other places to see and visit in and around Bromyard include the National Trust property of Lower Brockhampton, the Time Machine Museum which is home to a collection of props from some of the UK’s best loved TV sci-fis like Dr Who and Red Dwarf, and the twelve gardens of Ralph Court.

Children will enjoy Shortwood Family Farm where they can meet lots of farmyard animals and see how an organic dairy farm operates. There are also adult experience days available.

Bromyard is still a centre for hop growing, and there are tours available at the Frome Valley Vineyard where wine, cider brandy and cider is produced.

We have some lovely holiday cottages in and around Bromyard. Why not visit our collection to feel inspired?
