Visit Bromyard and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Bromyard, Herefordshire, stands on a plateau 400 ft above sea-level, surrounded by orchards and hopfields that rise to gorse-covered hills with splendid views in every direction. The River Frome flows through this smallest of Hereford's market towns, about halfway between Worcester and Leominster on the A44. it has a solid Norman church with a low central tower and flanking aisles. On the south side is a Norman doorway with a curious figure of St Peter carrying huge keys above some rich carvings. The interior has some high arcades of five bays. The slenderness of the piers is accentuated by their having been further heightened at the beginning of the 19th century. There is an interesting tub-shaped Norman font with interlaced and zigzag decoration. The church has an extraordinary number of tomb recesses both inside and outside, all dating from the 14th century. There are a number of interesting black-and-white houses in the town. Outstanding is the Tower Hill House built in 1630, where Charles I sheltered on the night of 3 September 1644. Just behind the little Market Place in Rowberry Street is a 16th-century house. It is a timber-framed building with good diagonal bracing and well worth visiting. At the other end was the Elizabethan Grammar School now part of the modern secondary school.
Lower Brockhampton. 2 miles east, has a timberframed manor house of about 1400.
