If you’ve ever dreamt of a place which brings together the convenience of living in a big city with the lifestyle associated with a home in a rural idyll, Herefordshire is the place for you.

Herefordshire lies in the south west of the West Midlands, bordering Wales. It is a rural county with a population of around 178,400. Numbers are expected to grow to 193,600 by 2026. Just under half of the population live in villages and rural areas, just under a third (30 per cent) of the people live in Hereford City, and the rest (22 per cent) live in the market towns.

The City of Hereford and the five market towns offer a wide variety of lifestyles blending the traditional with the modern. This is a county of contrasts where walkers enjoy breath-taking views, adrenalin seekers rave about our rock faces and river rapids, and connoisseurs of fine food enthuse about the quality of our locally grown produce.

Cycling, canoeing, climbing and kayaking sit neatly alongside theatres, art galleries, museums, festivals and more. There’s something for everyone.
