Herefordshire lies just south of the West Midlands sandwiched between Worcestershire and Brecon Beacons of Wales to the west.  The county’s rolling pastures, rural charm and rustic image belies a host of healthy and vibrant businesses.

Numerous diverse communities thrive on their distinct and individual character to give Herefordshire a uniqueness which is valued by residents, visitors and those who work in the county. There are many lovely hotels, pubs, restaurants, local shops and a very healthy food and drink industry.

Herefordshire is of course known for its cider and orchards as well as wide range of farming activities. With a population of 180,000 spread over a wide area our sparsely populated county offers huge benefits to its own residents as well as visitors from the country beyond.
