B&B cottage & campsite, Leominster
Nicholson Farm is only 5.5 miles from Leominster, a thriving market town, with a couple of supermarkets. The City of Hereford is 17 miles south providing a wide range of shops and an abundance of interesting history. The famous Herefordshire Black and White Trail starts only three miles west of Leominster with a trail of country roads through medieval villages heading towards the Welsh border only 20 miles west.
The top of the farm drive provides panoramic views of over 60 miles, from the Brecon Beacons and the Skirrid in the south moving westwards to see the famous Black Hill towering over the market towns of Abergavenny and Hay-on-Wye. To the west are The Radnorshire Hills and further to the north it is possible to see the Montgomeryshire Hills and the hills of South Shropshire.
Herefordshire is famous as a rural county providing all the peace and tranquility we all need for a happy and restful holiday. Good pub food is available within 3 minutes of the farm at the cosy Kings Head, with a la carte menus available from various pubs and restaurants slightly further afield.
There are plenty of activities to choose from while staying at Nicholson Farm. Farmer Tim is famous for his Farm Tours where you can learn all about the processes of Dairy Farming and explore the other areas of farm life. There are great footpaths through the farm that can take you on beautiful walks through the countryside.
Bicycle hire can be arranged if you want to go further afield. There are fishing lakes close by, one on the farm itself although this must be arranged with Tim beforehand and more at Docklow Pools nearby. Docklow is between the small towns of Bromyard and Leominster. Dr Who fans may like to visit The Time Machine in Bromyard.
The Cathedral cities of Hereford and Worcester are also within half an hours drive and both have much to offer in the way of shopping, Cinema, Bowling and more cultural activities. Some useful links are set out below.
