Self Catering Holiday Cottages in Kington

Kington is a beautiful English market town that is well known for its proximity to one of the country's favourite national trails, the Offa's Dyke Path. Despite its links with the Anglo-Saxon king, Offa, Kington is on the western side of the boundary, meaning that it was once under the rule of the Celtic king of Powys. Today, it is the epitome of English charm and a top choice for a holiday in all seasons, with cottages to rent whether you are looking for a romantic getaway or family holiday. Its beautiful walks, exciting cycling trails, friendly community and proximity to stunning vistas make it an ideal base for exploring not only the picturesque county of Herefordshire but also the Brecon Beacons National Park and places like the Wye Valley, Shropshire Hills and Malvern Hills Areas of Outstanding National Beauty (AONB).

Holidays in Kington

Offa's Dyke

London wasn't always the central seat of British power. More than a thousand years ago, an Anglo-Saxon king ordered the construction of a physical barrier to mark the border between his kingdom and the Welsh. The kingdom of Mercia may be no more, but the king lives on in the name of the earthworks, known as Offa's Dyke. Offa's Dyke Path is one of the most famous long-distance footpaths in the country, spanning 177 miles along the border between England and Wales and stretching from Chepstow in the south to Prestatyn in the north. Despite its age, some of the best-preserved areas of Offa's Dyke are close to Kington, offering walkers a taste of history together with panoramic views over both Herefordshire and Powys.

You can find out more about the history of this area at the Offa's Dyke Centre on West Street. The museum, which has free entry, will help you make sense of the area as well as give you an understanding about the various rulers - English and Welsh - who helped shape this stunning landscape.

Walking and Cycling around Kington

The Offa's Dyke Path isn't the only footpath in the area. Kington is a focal point for several excellent routes with the Glyndwr Way, Herefordshire Trail, Mortimer's Trail, Wych Way, Vaughan's Way and Arro Valley Trail all passing through or starting in the town. The Kington Tourist Information Centre has a wealth of maps and information, with knowledgeable volunteers who know the area well and can help visitors to plan the perfect route.

Although the views from Kington are stunning in every season, they are especially glorious in late summer when a four-day festival celebrates the region's beautiful walks. There is also a programme of spring walks held towards the end of April which helps you explore Kington as it bursts into life.

Visitors who prefer two wheels to two feet will be delighted with the variety of cycling routes. There is a trail to suit every ability including a popular 28-mile route that starts at the Tourist Information Centre and takes riders along quiet lanes and through the villages of Pembridge, Eardisland, Dilwyn, Lyonshall and Weobly. Another favourite route takes in Huntington and Gladestry, crossing the border into Wales and providing far-reaching views from Hergest Ridge before returning to town.

Food and Drink

The fields and farmland in Herefordshire aren't only pretty. The farmers here enjoy some of the most fertile and productive land in England, making Kington a tasty choice for a gourmand's self-catering holiday in the countryside. Kington Market runs every Friday morning and is a fantastic place to buy local produce, allowing buyers to talk to the producers and suppliers of meat, vegetable and other goodies grown within a few miles of the Market Hall. The town also has an excellent choice of independent shops that include two butchers, an artisan bakery, a fishmonger and an ice-cream parlour.

Although Herefordshire is known for its cider, there are several excellent breweries including the Swan Brewery in nearby Leominster which uses hops grown in Herefordshire and neighbouring Worcestershire. The brewery shop is open every Friday, or you can taste their beers on tap at several local pubs.

Attractions and Day Trips

Kington's location is ideal for exploring Herefordshire and the surrounding region. Local attractions include Hergest Croft Gardens, the Owl Centre and the 18-hole Kington Golf Course. The historic city of Hereford is within easy reach, with an excellent choice of places to eat, drink and shop as well as a magnificent cathedral and several museums. Hay-on-Wye is even closer, with its plentiful bookshops and cafes, and riverfront location with kayaks to navigate the River Wye.

Kington is a wonderful year-round holiday destination. It has a beautiful landscape and a relaxed pace that will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, even if you only have a few days. Its selection of charming self-catering cottages in the town and countryside will provide a welcome respite for couples, families and friends in every season.
