The Riverside Inn’s pretty black and white premises has it all
Set in the picturesque village of Aymestry, near the Herefordshire/Shropshire border, The Riverside Inn’s pretty black and white premises has it all. An award-winning restaurant, wonderful walks, a nature-lovers haven and of course, well-appointed rooms.
Comprising of two particularly spacious suites, two doubles, a twin and one single, all characterful rooms are individually furnished. The Hayloft suite overlooks the river and opens out onto the terrace garden, the Stable suite gives out onto the river bank at ground floor level – especially convenient for guests with dogs.
Breakfast is always individually and freshly cooked using local ingredients, including freshly laid eggs from the village (important for the special recipe scrambled eggs) and produce as far as possible from the Riverside’s own kitchen garden, which guests are welcome to explore. For more on their food and restaurant, visit their page here.
The river and its banks are full of wildlife; dragonflies, dippers, otters, kingfishers, brown trout and grayling all live here. Fly fishing is available for guests on a 1½ mile beat upstream from the Inn.
There is a good collection of circular walks ranging from 3 to 15 miles length; the most popular takes you to an Iron Age Hill Fort then onto Croft Castle with its 1000 years of history. They also offer a Mortimer Trail package complete with transport, you can walk from Ludlow to Kington over two or three days and see some of the most stunning views in Herefordshire.
With the Riverside Inn as a base you can comfortably visit five golf courses, the Black and White Village Trail, Ludlow, Hereford, houses and gardens, heritage sites, breweries, cider presses, cheese-wrights, visitor centres and country parks or just sit by the river.
