Raddle Bank House
Raddle Bank House in a quiet location bordering Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Shropshire is in an ideal position for visiting some of the finest historic towns in England and for pursuing many activities in magnificent countryside while relaxing in superb surrounding countryside.
We are just inside the North Herefordshire border, perfectly situated for the Ludlow Food Fayre in September or the Tenbury Wells Holly and Mistletoe Festival in early December.
The cathedral cities of Hereford , Worcester , Tewkesbury and Gloucester are all close by (between 30-50 minutes drive) and the ancient city of Shrewsbury is easily accessible.
There is superb walking country on the doorstep; the Mortimer’s trail begins at Ludlow; Offa’s Dyke and the Black Mountains are within easy reach and the Malvern Hills are a short drive away.
The vast network of country lanes provides excellent cycling and opportunities for ornithologists are abundant: buzzards, kites and peregrine falcons are resident in the region. Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust is an hours’ drive away.
Barbel fishing in the River Teme is celebrated among anglers.
Hay-on-Wye ( bordering Wales ), renowned world-wide for its antiquarian and second-hand bookshops and annual Literary Festival in May, is a mere 40-minute’s drive from the house.
The Herefordshire Black and White village trail starts at Leominster and takes you through such picturesque villages as Eardisland, Weobley and Pembridge.
