Welcome to Mortimer Country

We would like to welcome you to North Herefordshire - a gloriously rural county located close to Ludlow at the heart of the Marches - the border county of Herefordshire where England meets Wales. Stay at one of our many historic and welcoming Bed & Breakfast and self catering cottages and explore the Teme and Lugg valleys and uplands of the Mortimer Forest.  There is plenty to keep you amused - from spectacular Castles, cycling on our quiet traffic free lanes, or following the walking trails like The Mortimer Trail.  

Our outstanding restaurants, tearooms and inns provide visitors with delicious locally sourced food; North Herefordshire and our market town of Ludlow have an international reputation for the quality of local food and restaurants.  Come and find out for yourself.

Use this website to plan your holiday, this website has all the tourist information you need to make a wonderful holiday.  Lots of guided walks throughout the year, look at our Walking Calendar to choose a walk and explore this wonderful area of north Herefordshire.
