Owner description: This 40-mile circular trail starts (and ends) in Leominster and passes by buildings going back to Domesday.
Reviewed 11 October 2017

Spent a good many hours following the trail, avoiding Leominster. Lots of the villages and black and white buildings are very small but for us Pembridge and Eardisland stood out. You do need to get out of the car, especially in these two places, and explore a bit. We were lucky with dry clear weather, and the scenery is lovely. If wet and misty suggest you don't bother. Taking a short drive up to Kington Golf club in good weather would afford you superb long-distance views.

We came across this as we drove around and followed most of it and have to say despite the rain we did enjoy it and in summer on a sunny day must be beautiful. So yes if you are in the area do drive the trail.

We did enjoy most of this trail, although some of the villages listed had no black and white buildings but perhaps just a church. Stopping to park and capture the atmosphere was difficult in a few, but we thoroughly enjoyed it, and managed to take enough photos to be memorable.

We were at staying in Weobley, one of the villages on the trail. We followed the "prescribed" route in reverse - first to Dilwyn then Eardisland, Pembridge, Kington and Eardisley.
All are interesting in their own ways but some are definitely better than others. For me the "top three" must be Weobley, Pembridge and Eardisland although I'm sure others would disagree.
The route is quite easy to follow and it is certainly a pleasant way to pass a day.

Reviewed 8 June 2017

We were staying in one of the 'Black and White' villages, Pembridge, and had picked up a leaflet in Leominster Tourist Information centre, but were then offered a CD of an audio tour of the trail.
The audio tour, was OK, but we decided afterwards that we would rather have just worked from the leaflet as, at the end of each 'chapter' there were quite involved instructions about where to go before the next 'chapter' started, and these were not always easy to remember, so we went awry once or twice.
However the villages were mostly beautiful, and with some great scenery between. Our favourites were Pembridge, Eardisland (very picture postcard) and Weobley, which probably had the best selection of half-timbered houses.
One slight drawback to the trail, is that a lot of it is along major roads, which means that driving slowly to admire the view is not an option as, not unreasonably, a lot of locals and through traffic just want to drive at or near the speed limit to get to where they are going.
