Came upon this entirely by chance through an email from Colwall Park hotel suggesting places to go. 40 mile driving trail round beautiful villages that have medieval, black and white, timber framed houses. Pick up leaflet from Leominster tourist information but also available online. Highlights include Weobley, the great oak near Eardisley - a 900 year old oak tree, and Kington - the area near the church said to be haunted by a black dog and rumoured to be Conan Doyle's inspiration for The Hound of the Baskervilles.

We did the full tour and thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon drive. Our favourite villages were Weobley, Pembridge and Eardisland which are all very pretty. A special mention to Eardisley which has the New Strand coffee shop. Lovely cream tea and 30000 books to browse.
Probably need a bit more time to explore Kington which is a small town with a thriving high street.
You could also make a good day out of it if you visit at least one pub or coffee shop in each village.
There are also some impressive churches. Dilwyn's has a fine entrance vestibule and generally the churches demonstrate that this was once an important administrative and commercial hub.

My wife and I did this trail many years ago so it was pleasant to read about it in a magazine. It brought back memories so we decided to visit it again whilst on a weekend break to Herefordshire. There are several named villages but the best we found was Weobley. There is a village walk pointing out the more important houses. Park in the village centre near the tourist information.

We chanced on this drive through a passing meeting with fellow tourists. There was very little literature about it; no brochures.
But this is simply a great drive to take because it takes you through a part of the countryside that you would normally not drive through. The theme of the drive is to see villages which have a number of 15th-17th century (give or take a few) buildings which stand out because the houses are thatched, white-washed and have these black timbers in front as highlights. The villages were very pretty.
We drove this tour by ourselves, using a map and GPS, and did just fine. It will take the better part of the day, especially if you stop for lunch.

A professional cd of this tour can be purchased. Pembridge as award winning tea room and shop. Just out side award winning farmhouse b&b with all upto date technology free wifi, 7 seater hot tub, parking and fresh from the bean coffe latte choc and water machine serving room temp and iced. Good for walking cycling relaxing visiting gardens and national trust around the villages. Herefordshire voted best place on Jason Beaties maps last true piece of England, birds singing, fresh air and space. Weobley speared on the one show recently, both Pembridge and Weobley have fabulous black white timber chocolate box houses and lots of good eating out in evening from pub to restaurant.
