Only in Herefordshire will you find fantastically names hamlets like Trumpet and what surprises await you when you do.

Pull in straight from the road to the ample car park, and venture through the iron gates to discover a little slice of wonderland. With an excellent reputation for beautifully moist and flavourful cakes, the tearoom is a real destination in a wonderfully private setting overlooking a pretty secret garden, in which you can sit on a warm day to enjoy the tweet of the birds and the smell of the rose arch. The aromas of freshly baked scones (for their award-winning cream teas), drizzle cakes, iced confections, and general slices of delicious naughtiness mingle with savoury smells of lovely hot and cold light lunches, all freshly prepared in the tearoom kitchens.

Inspiration and temptation is everywhere for gifts, for treats and all for sale. […]

What’s On In Herefordshire
In partnership with English Heritage, Meadow Arts presents In Ruins – an ambitious art exhibition in the extraordinary ruins of Witley Court in Worcestershire, focusing on our enduring attraction to ruins and how they are still relevant today. Contemporary artworks inhabit the grounds and ruined mansion, including new monumental sculptures by Alex Hartley; stunning photographs by Marchand & Meffre, Amelie Labourdette and Stuart Whipps; further sculptures from Tim Etchells, Holly Hendry and Jack Evans; postcards by Ellen Harvey and a disused Woolworth’s shopfront by Matthew Darbyshire. Artists have explored ruins for hundreds of years, fascinated by their value as emblems of the passing of time: like a time machine to the past, each ruin was once someone’s future. In Ruins is an exhibition curated and produced by Meadow Arts, delivered in partnership with English Heritage, supported by Arts Council England.
