Church Street

Reviewed By shane s - Northamptonshire, United Kingdom

Having visited some of England's prettiest streets including Steep hill in Lincoln,Elm Hill in Norwich, Mermaid Street in Rye and the Circus in Bath,Church Street tops the lot. A beautiful medieval street hidden away which offers tearooms,a free museum and a food serving pub and then the stunning church located at the top end....my only gripe was that there was not enough of it! Visited 21st January 2018.

Newbridge Farm Park

Our farm enables families and groups to have fun, safe, quality time together with our friendly animals, activities and play areas. As usual nothing stays the same for long here. Our new Playbarn has been going down well with all our young visitors. Our large selection of friendly, eager to eat out of your hand animals, are waiting to see you! We look forward to seeing you too!

Reviewed By finedinewine - Great Malvern, United Kingdom

For a young child this really is an excellent day out, regardless of the weather. Pony rides, a variety of animals to touch under supervision (chicks, chinchillas, tortoise, rabbits!), many animals to feed from alpacas, to goats to donkeys and excellent indoor and outdoor play areas. There is also a ride in tractors trailer which is great fun.
Top tip- if you only have an hour then you will not get value for money, aim to stay for a good 3-4 plus and you will have had a really good day out.

Reviewed By KAZ964 - London, United Kingdom

Fantastic Castle only just over 200 years old, but plenty to see and do! Lovely big lake around the back of the Castle take a long stroll round, while enjoying the ducks and birds. There’s a tree trail that tells you facts and history of the trees interesting to do. They have different activities throughout the year, need to look on website to find out more. A knights maze and children’s assault course, adventure playground and more. A lovely Sunday spent with the family, would recommend a visit .

Hellen's

Jacobean Manor house in Much Marcle. Open Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday afternoons from Easter until the end of September. Tea rooms serving homemade cakes. Gardens with labyrinth, dovecote, pond, knot garden, mediaeval garden.

Reviewed By efcraig - Cardiff

What to say - superb and exemplary throughout. Visited with our 9 year old granddaughter. Managed to get her interested to visit with promises of ghosts and related stories.
The house tour with delightful guide took just over an hour. House staggering beautiful and furnished appropriately. Paintings throughout interesting with some masters.
Guide did not disappoint with ghoulish stories especially of a murdered monk in one of the bedrooms. Granddaughter transfixed.
After tour tea and cakes in the garden.. The homemade cakes we all agreed, were some of the best ever had.
Finally wandered at leisure around the mixed and delightful Gardens.
Exceptional afternoon out, the house and setting really a piece of paradise.
Recommended.

Butcher Row House Museum

Reviewed By purpletravelat - Newark-on-Trent, United Kingdom

A very small museum with free entrance (Donations requested) on two floors. The 1st floor has all the interesting paraphernalia but is hard to access if you have difficulties with steps and a low ceiling. Interesting place to visit for about ½ hour.

16th Century Painted Room

Reviewed By leeGlosUK - Gloucester, United Kingdom

This marvellous room, discovered when refurbishment was being carried out, is just amazing for its detail. Not always open (as it's a venue for civil wedding ceremonies) and up some steep stairs, but worth the effort and the wait.

Heritage Centre, Ledbury

Reviewed By Jeff1903 - King's Lynn

There is not much that is really spectacular, but there are some interesting things, especially old photographs that make this place worth half an hour of anyone's time. The building itself is as interesting as the contents, so call in as you do the town walk.

Reviewed By TrevB56 - Camberley, United Kingdom

quite an impressive church with a churchyard that you can amble around whilst looking at the different facets of the church. it is easy to see how the building has been modified and added to over the centuries. Well worth a wander and a look.

The restored timber building now houses the local library, which has an interesting section detailing the life of the local Literary hero, John Masefield. The quality of the timber work and restoration is wonderful.

St Bartholemew's Church

Reviewed By Suetheshark - Brisbane, Australia

If you wish to learn about the history of much of Britain when you head to the local church. With my Pevsner Buildings of England in hand I headed to Much Marcle and was not disappointed either by the village or St Bartholomew's church. Namesake saint for my own home town church in Wolverhampton, this fine medieval edifice has wooden roof, and a series of fine effigies and memorials in wood and stone. The memorial to Blanche Mortimer - a rare women and noted local - is the centrepiece and another medieval knight has his feet settled on his dog. But as others say the drawcard in the cemetery is the giant yew trees, one of Herefordshire's finest - venerable in its ancient girth. Good cheer in the nearby pub after exploring the church history or, like me, you enjoy discovering the use of local stone - in this case including Silurian rocks.
