Walking/Hiking

A short walk to the top of the Hatteral Hill will bring you onto the Offa's Dyke path along which the boundary of England and Wales runs. From the top of the hill and on a clear day you can see 9 different counties and take in the breath-taking view of both the typical patchwork quilt landscape of Herefordshire and the counties beyond to one side and the rugged Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons to the other.
