Weir Garden

Weir Garden (National Trust) is a spectacular riverside garden and be absorbed by natural beauty.

Bordered by the River Wye, The Weir sits within unspoilt Herefordshire countryside and has many historical secrets to uncover. For centuries this site has been used as a pleasure ground for fishing, boating and swimming. It is managed in a natural way to create a varied habitat for wildlife.

In spring see carpets of bulbs littered between ancient trees, in summer enjoy a picnic by the river to watch the wildlife and in autumn visit the walled garden bursting with seasonal produce.

Visit the garden any time of year to find out why this location has appealed to so many and enjoy exploring this tranquil haven.

Please note: only assistance dogs are allowed in the gardens, all other dogs can be exercised in the car park picnic area.

After your stroll along the river and the family have tired themselves out in the natural play area why not stop for some refreshment?

Our humble tea tent is self service and situated at the top of the riverside garden.  Find a peaceful spot to enjoy your hot and cold drinks as well as locally made cake.

Our gardens are fantastic for picnicking any time of year and visitors are free to choose a spot they like anywhere in the garden.  Relax on a deckchair next to the river to watch the world go by or bring a picnic rug and find a quiet spot under an ancient tree.
