Autumn is a lovely time of year here in Herefordshire to get outdoors and enjoy the autumn colours around us. From riverside to woodland walks with picturesque views and so much wildlife to see around us, it really is a beautiful location. As you walk through the woods you can enjoy the sounds of the crunch of the leaves beneath your feet, whilst the squirrels are busy collecting food for the winter months ahead. If you’re really lucky, you may even see some deer as they move through the woods!
The River Wye has been enjoyed by many guests of the park, especially over the summer months. On the days that we’ve been lucky enough to enjoy some warm weather and suitable river levels, many canoeists, kayakers and paddleboards have taken full advantage and got themselves in the river. But you don’t just have to be on the water to enjoy the River, many fishermen have also been busy on the river banks with many having successful catches.
Throughout the year there are some truly spectacular sunsets across the River Wye. It’s amazing to watch nature at its best- we truly are lucky to have front row seats to watch this. Over the past few months, we have seen a red kite regularly flying over which is lovely to see as this part of the world we don’t normally get to see them.
Herefordshire is renowned for cider orchards which are filled with apples ready to be turned into delicious cider, and the air becomes filled with the aroma of sweet apples. We are located not too far from Weston’s, where many of the locally grown apples end up to be turned into scrumptious cider of which you can enjoy a glass of at the Riverside Bar and Eatery on site while over looking the River Wye. Or why not enjoy a day out on one of Herefordshire’s famous cider trails?
However you choose to spend your time in Herefordshire during the Autumn, you’ll never be short of things to see, do and explore. What’s on your itinerary for your next trip?
