About Herefordshire

Explore Shared Ownership developments in Herefordshire.

Residents of Herefordshire enjoy the best of both worlds: the peace and quiet of rural living, and easy access to the work and recreation opportunities of Birmingham and the wider West Midlands.

While holidays abroad are easy to arrange thanks to nearby airports in Birmingham and Bristol, there are a wealth of recreational pursuits to enjoy in and around Herefordshire itself, from idyllic market towns like Ross on Wye, to walking in the Cotswolds to the southeast and the Brecon Beacons to the west. Indeed, with Wales just over the border, potential outdoor pursuits are vast in number.

But the delights of the big city are never far away. The UK’s second city, Birmingham, is within easy reach, offering world-class shopping in the Bull Ring, superb nightlife, pretty canals and high-profile sports venues such as Edgbaston cricket ground and villa park.
