Walks and local attractions for dog owners
Here at Poston Mill we welcome your pets and provide a 10 acre dog field where well behaved dogs can run free. When they return with muddy paws take them into the dog wash and blow dry area so that they return clean to your touring caravan or Holiday Home. Doggy buckets are provided all around the park and some items are available in the shop for your pet. We can also provide a list of places who will allow dogs when visiting restaurants and shops in the area.

Arthur’s Stone is an atmospheric Neolithic burial chamber made of great stone slabs, set in the hills above Herefordshire’s Golden Valley.
Like many prehistoric monuments in western England and Wales, this tomb has been linked to King Arthur since before the 13th century. According to legend, it was here that Arthur slew a giant who left the impression of his elbows on one of the stones as he fell.

Visit Herefordshire Churches
Churches tell a story, many stories – of families, political intrigue and social change, of architecture, changes in belief and life.
No two churches are the same and many are connected to famous people past and present.
Not all of our magnificent and often unique churches are listed on the linked web site, so follow signs for churches and explore every possibility for a full taste of heritage.
The Gardens that reflect the manor house tastes and needs of different generations that lived here. From the most recent family to live here in the 1950s to the medieval origins of the estate itself.
Surrounding the romantic timber framed manor house are gardens which change with the seasons and enhance the rustic beauty of the manor house itself.
In front of the manor house, as you cross the moat and enter through the unique timber framed gatehouse, the borders are filled with cottage garden style plants, many of which were planted by Marion and Valentine Freegard, who lived here in the 1950s.

Once the stronghold of the turbulent Mortimer family, Wigmore Castle was later dismantled to prevent its use during the Civil War. Now it is among the most remarkable ruins in England, largely buried up to first floor level by earth and fallen masonry. Yet many of its fortifications survive to full height, including parts of the keep on its towering mound.

A powerful thick-walled round keep dating from around 1200, characteristic of the Welsh Borders, on a large earthen mound within a stonewalled bailey. Set in the beautiful Olchon valley, with magnificent views of the Black Mountains.
Ewias Lacey Castle, as it was once known, may have been built on an already well-defended site. Its prominent location, on a spur of high ground between two river valleys, and the evidence of its outer earthworks, suggest to some that an Iron Age camp may have been established here. The Romans also probably occupied the site.
An alternative suggestion is that the origins of the site lie in the late Saxon period, in the 10th century. What is certain is that in 1086 Domesday Book recorded the land here as belonging to the Lacey family, who exacted payments in honey and pigs from their tenants.
