Castle House is part of the following Inspirations:
"Castle House sits on a corner of one of Hereford’s lovely irregular Georgian Streets. In 1746 the ruins of Hereford Castle were dismantled and the site was transformed into Castle Green, a pleasure garden for more peaceful times on the Welsh border. At the same time the castle’s moat was turned into Castle Pool, a duck pond which is now overlooked by the Castle House Hotel. This 24-bedroom boutique hotel has a fine reputation for its dining. Head chef Claire Nicholls creates an inspiring menu from local produce including Herefordshire beef from Ballingham, the hotel owner's farm."
"Castle House is a privately-owned boutique hotel in the backstreets of Hereford with 24 bedrooms overlooking the moated castle, but it’s also a hidden gem for wine lovers. Don’t be misled by the nine reasonably-priced house wines (four white, four red and a Coteaux du Libron rosé). France, South Africa, New Zealand and Italy feature at the cheaper end of the wine list but the full list is extensive, running to over 300 bins and featuring a local Herefordshire white (Broadfield Special Reserve 2010). There are also a number of good value Bin Ends and a special section on the wine list called Push the Boat Out. The furthest you can push it is a Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Tollot-Beaut 2010 for £140."
"Hay on Wye Festival, Hay on Wye, 23 May – 2 June. Bill Clinton described Hay as "The Woodstock of the mind”. Though a relative newcomer, this literary festival has made itself one of the most talked-about in the world by bringing in high profile, high octane writers. Set in a small Welsh border town that is famous for its second-hand bookshops, Hay has now created a dozen “sister” festivals all round the world. It’s a short but picturesque drive to and from the Castle Hotel in Hereford. If the festival programme allows try out the hotel’s Castle Bistro for a perfect informal dinner."
"Herefordshire – Flavours of Herefordshire Festival (www.visitherefordshire.co.uk/whats-on/4515/festival-of-herefordshire/?doing_wp_cron) Starts: 27th October in Hereford Harvest time brings the Flavours of Herefordshire festival, with farmer’s markets showing off the local produce and several cookery demonstrations to entertain visitors.
