Walkers love Herefordshire for the magnificent scenery of the Wye Valley and Malvern hills. History buffs love it for its Norman castle ruins, Tudor manors and cathedrals. Foodies love it for its local produce (celebrated at the annual food festival in August) and there’s plenty for culture vultures too. At this Club site, the big attraction is fishing. As you enter along the tree-lined driveway, the fishing lake is the first thing you see. Coarse fishing is available here and reception will be able to fill you in on all the details. The on-site shop also sells fishing bait and tackle. Pitches at the top of the site boast lovely views over the surrounding countryside. Apart from the sound of the occasional passing train, it couldn’t be more peaceful. The staff are friendly and as ever the facilities spotless and in excellent condition.
