Trebandy Farm at Marstow is nestled in deep in the Herefordshire countryside, in the Outstanding Natural Beauty of the River Wye Valley. The nearest town is the picturesque Ross-On-Wye, whilst nearby are the Cathedral City of Hereford, hilltop castle-town of Abergavenny, Monmouth, Gloucester, and Cheltenham, Worcester, Bristol and Cardiff are within approximately an hour’s drive.
The gently rolling countryside is a haven for walkers. Sitting in the majestic lee of the Black Mountains the landscape is a sympathetic mosaic of patchwork fields. A place where the land is put to work, but with sensitivity and care.
There are some fantastic walking routes where you can take in the sights, make the occasional historic stop-off and enjoy the welcome of a country pub. Don’t miss Arthur’s Stone at Dorstone (the oldest man-made structure in Herefordshire) and Dore Abbey.

Hereford is one of England’s smallest cities, and home to the historic Cathedral, Mappa Mundi and one of the most complete examples of a Chained Library. The market town centres on the River Wye, and has a variety of food, cultural and leisure activities. It is home to Rule of Tum (Observer Food Magazine UK Best Roast Dinner winner) and the Beefy Boys (world finalists in the burger championships). The Barrells is a well loved favourite beer garden, whilst De Koffee Pot and the Left Bank Complex offers riverside atmosphere.

Hereford is also home to the annual River Carnival, which is a community led city-wide event, celebrating the Nation’s Favourite River (as previously voted).
“Town of Books” Hay-on-Wye is home to the Internationally renowned literary & poetry festivals, and is the perfect place for bookshop-antiquing, just thirty minutes drive from Trebandy through the stunning Golden Valley.
After a week away from the world of #bookstagram we are back celebrating this, the warm weather, #marbledmonday and @theironbridgebookshop ‘s Megan’s 22nd Birthday. The #breakfastbook is Oscar Wilde’s A House of Pomegranates – a faithful reproduction of the stunning 1914 original illustrated by Jessie M. King. This was published by Calla Editions in 2011 and is already selling for about £50. DM me for more photographs. The illustrations within are as good as those by Kay Nielsen, Rackham or Dulac. The raspberries are from the land by @wantocanoe grown by Roz Garrett, the flowers are from are from the insane amount in our window boxes. To get blueberries looking like this put them immediately into the freezer – I love that icy sheen. #itsgoodtobeback #addymanbooks #hayonwye #booksellersbreakfast #fruitplatter #healthybreakfast #thehouseofpomegranates #oscarwilde #jessiemking #illustratedbook #fairytales #fruitforbreakfast #nicecream #pinknicecream #pomegranate #coffeeandbooks #booksforbreakfast
