Things to do:

This beautiful area of Herefordshire is a delight for walking and cycling. There are numerous walks and cycle routes, local and further afield.
There are plenty of walking guides available in the DugOut with landmarks and photos on the guides to ensure that you find your way easily. Simply choose your walk and take the guide with you. If you want to wild swim, be sure to ask for directions to the river at Skenfrith.

There are many pictruresque market towns within easy driving distance of the DugOut: Hereford (10 miles), Ross (15 miles), Monmouth (10 miles), Abergavenny (18 miles), Hay-on-Wye (25 miles) and Leominster (24 miles). Whether you want to see historical churches and artifacts, like the Mappa Mundi and the Chain Library in Hereford Cathedral, or whether you prefer to poke around in antique shops in Leominster, or maybe you want to explore the art galleries and book shops in Hay-on-Wye. There is a host of things to do to suit all tastes.
