New builds Herefordshire

Known as England’s orchard, Herefordshire is renowned for its fertile soil, temperate climate and high-quality cider apples – with local producers making some of the best cider in the UK. It's also known as a great commuter county, being equidistant from Birmingham and Bristol, offering quality of life for people who need to work in the city, but who want the country life. 

Your new home in Herefordshire has country life in spades. The Wye Valley is celebrated for its stunning scenery, characterised by lush greenery, meandering rivers and towering limestone cliffs. From your new build in Herefordshire, you can enjoy picturesque walks along the Wye Valley with its cascading waterfalls, tranquil woodlands and panoramic viewpoints – most notably, Symonds Yat. Adventure seekers will enjoy hiking and cycling along scenic trails or canoeing down the mighty Wye. The area is also popular for rock climbing, abseiling, birdwatching and fishing which means a new build property in Herefordshire provides almost endless opportunities to explore the great outdoors.
