GETTING TO LOWER WAY FARM
We are about a mile from Kington, a traditional intact market town in northwest Herefordshire near the Welsh border. The hills of Radnorshire are immediately to the west. The orchards, meadows, hop gardens of Herefordshire to the east.
If you're coming along Offa's Dyke from the Hay direction you can drop down off Hergest Ridge before Kington. Turn right/south roughly at the monkey puzzle trees, walk past the Bage Farm and on down the lane to Lower Hergest.
If you're coming from the Kington direction, or are in Kington, you can either walk along the road to Lower Hergest, or follow one of several footpaths cross-country. Alternatively we are generally very happy to pick up B&B guests in the car from Kington.
Follow Kington's main street west through the town up the hill to the church. You will see a sign on your left to Hergest and Huntington. Take this road. After 1 mile take the turning right to Upper and Lower Hergest. ¼ mile up a steep overhung lane there's a triangle of grass and an oak tree. The road bends left and Lower Way Farm is the first house on your left.
There are a number of pubs in Kington, some serving good food, plus a hotel and several takeaways. We can generally give B&B guests without a car a lift into Kington and back.
